    Cool idea Zand, I have heard a rest can be as good as a cure for some.

For over eight years my diabetes medication has not changed. My weight has remained stable, I have suffered no ill effects from my diet whatsoever. Every blood test has proved, I took the right road to my diabetic salvation. For almost seven years, I have asked medical professionals and naysayers, how do I maintain non diabetic BG levels on two Metformin other than low carb ? The silence has been deafening !

    Some things *have* improved though as everything alse has gone down the crapper. I never saw the London Pea-Souper fogs, but I do recall back in the days of coal fires the chimney fires that occured when the soot started burning. Chimney sweeps in the South used to push the brush up from below with bamboo poles screwed together, Northern sweeps would climb up on the roof and lower the brush down on a rope.

    Early mornings I would drive out of Bristol, which was in a bowl surrounded by hills, and look back in my mirrors and some days there was just a cloud of fug, and I'd think "I was just breathing that!"

    Likewise we'd be up on the South Downs at going-home time in the evening and the air would become thick as everyone drove home. My old man built an astronomical telescope but we could no longer use it due to the clouds of pollution from the M25, Gatwick, Heathrow etc. At least diesel cars don't spew lead everywhere like the old petrol ones.

    In general though I think more things have gotten worse than got better.

When you stopped at traffic lights the engine stopped and when you touched the accelerator it started again. I found it annoying but I bet it would do well on emission tests.
    This feature can easily turned off by using  the electonic diagnostic/configuration  boxes that are available to owners & garages!
    You could probably turn it off yourself with some arcane set of button presses and actually reading the handbook (my current car has TWO handbooks, one for the car and one for the computer)

    Come to that the test defeat software can also probably be switched off by reprogramming the computer.
