Holy cow!! general knowledge on this blog seems as logical as Military Intelligence?
Toothpaste, look down the spout there is a plastic insert with gaps between the inside of the outer tube of the nozzle and the outside of the plastic insert. When the tube is filled a small amount of each colour is injected into each of the 3 or few gaps. When the white paste is squeezed out the pressure also pushes a small amount of colouring agent out each of the above gaps painting the stripe of toothpaste. Comprende?

Foggy windscreen!! Windscreen foggs up when the temperature of the glass drops below the dewpoint of the air inside the car. So to clear, Heat the glass and/or increase the dewpoint of the air inside the car by heating the air.  Or for rapid work switch on the aircon NB Switch to Fresh Air inlet not circulate; this will cool the incoming air this reduces the water carrying capacity of the air and it drops out, (Next time u use the aircon of the car look under it when you have stopped and see the water dripping out) then push the heater up a bit extra to reheat the air. See the capacity of air to carry water as vapour is heavily temperature dependent. So the same air with the same amount of water in grams /mcubed vaporised in it will change in a few degrees of temperature rise from RH 100% to RH 50% or even less.  Jaguar was the first motor manufacturer to run the aircon continually, brought temp down to 4C then reheat the air to comfort to driver setting. Fresh Dry air in the car. QED

The song is Creedence Clearwater Revival’s Don’t Look Now, but what’s the answer to all those questions? :P

You can say it all much shorter, just as CCR did:  “It ain’t you or me.”

Why does 2011 hate me?
