These are exactly what they are: spring coil disc brake warning cords. They work well, stretch to about 120cm/47 in.
I should note that my first order went missing in the mail; the dealer dispatched new ones immediately and they arrived quickly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good locks, excellent deal, June 11 2016
Achat vérifié(Quest-ce que cest?)
These are very good disc brake locks. A thief will need a portable grinder to get one of these off your M/C or bike; an excellent deal. I bought two and then ordered two more. Nothing will save your bike given a determined thief and the right conditions, but, these locks will certainly be a deterrent, will stop an opportunistic thief, and a thief will look silly grinding away in public.

I just received my box of ink cartridges and replaced all 5 in my printer (3 were flashing and 2 showing !). I ran a test print and everything was fine. (The 2nd black cartridge is XL (250), not XXL (255) as the original equipment: this is a statement of fact, not a complaint at all. -- At this price, there is no room for complaint!) The order arrived in one week. What a savings!

5.0 out of 5 stars I appreciated and enjoyed reading the book, May 3 2016
Achat vérifié(Quest-ce que cest?)
I was a little reluctant to buy this book, expecting maybe a bit of sentimentality or what I would deem foolishness; however, I appreciated and enjoyed reading the book, which deals with 'grieving' (in contrast to 'mourning'), occasioned by the early death of Didion's husband. Grieving has similarities with mental illness, as Didion notes, and leads to many strange actions and thoughts, wishes, hopes. Didion is quite objective about this period in her life, but presents it with emotion that is affecting. I found her reference to literary works well-integrated and meaningful; it sent me back to re-read some of the poems etc she referenced. Of course, the work makes one think or contemplate: this could happen to me, I could lose my wife and be left alone, a little unbalanced and, likewise, thinking magically. Best to learn: appreciate, as I think Didion did, every moment we have with someone who is part of the fabric of our life. Read it, experience grief and, ultimately, the triumph of life.

What's to say about a bobble-head? I bought it on a whim when offered a low price. It's cute, its head bobbles, and we have a little laugh about it once in a while while it watches us eat, its head a-bobbin'. It's about 6.5 inches (16 cm) tall, sturdily built, but it doesn't talk or do tricks. Just bobbles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Common knowledge debunked., May 3 2016
Achat vérifié(Quest-ce que cest?)
I was once told by a person, who quite reading "How the Catholic Church Built Western Civilization," that it "went too easy" on the Church's responsibility for severely punishing Galileo. -- Turns out to be close-mindedness based upon untruths or propaganda, as, unfortunately, is too much of "common knowledge." This book, edited by a Professor of the History of Science, who is an atheist, with contributions from numerous other professors and scientists -- Christians, Jews, Muslims, agnostics, and other atheists -- puts to rest a number of myths (or untruths or lies) about the relationship between Science and Religion. Topics include the rise of Christianity and the [alleged} demise of ancient science, the medieval Church, and Islam, and the growth of science, the role of Catholics in the development of science, creationism, and many other myths (25 in total) with clearly written, accessible, and well-documented argument. I recommend it for anyone who cares for truth and wishes to be well- and properly-informed about the roles of science and religion and their relationship when engaging in discussions. It would be nice if someone could write a book on all the myths of common knowledge, but that would be a massive tome.

Achat vérifié(Quest-ce que cest?)
Throws a large circle of bright light with a very bright central beam a good distance. I find it good for walking on trails or other uneven surfaces because of the large circle (which, of course, gets larger by change in angle or distance from object illuminated); 2 walking in close file can use the same light aimed downward. A good deal. (NB it is not focusable and has only 1 setting [which I do not find to be a problem]; battery is not included.)

Ce commentaire est de: Interview - Bilingual (DVD)
Well, you have to see this. Buscemi is great in everything I've seen him in and Sienna Miller does a good job too. Two characters - a reporter, a little old but hopeful, and a star who is beautiful, seductive - and an interview. Soon enough, though, mind games start. Come-ons. Revelations. Who is telling the truth and who is being played? Both? A nice little psychological tennis match.

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring and banal, Sept. 23 2013
A waste of two talents. This is like watching 2 teenagers wandering around babbling banalities about love, life, etc. Unfortunately, these are two 20-somethings, and the poor young lady attends the Sorbonne but appears to have avoided reading any philosophy, theology, or literature. Even Vienna is poorly-served -- the setting could have been Seattle or Vancouver for all the coverage it received or for any purpose it served in the plot. I did think that the two actors at least caught well the shyness, uncomfortableness of meeting someone new and trying to be clever without being a fool. The one Parisian-born girl I ever met and spent time with was reading "Love's Body" and discussing philosophy and poetry - she was not even 18! But then, she would have seen 'Jesse James' for the shell he was and there would have been no movie.
