I'm not sure if any of you guys have seen this where you live, but some people round here seem to have cut the front end (near the grill/bumper) of the car bonnet and have replaced it with some kind of flap. The flap looks to be made of plastic or rubber.

Why is this? What is the purpose?

Sorry I have no idea about cars.

I have a Twitter account. I follow accounts related to West Ham, work, and some comedians. I tweet occasionally.

I'm now being followed by Harold Lefty Williams, a Harlem Globetrotter (apparently).

Why would he do that?

I see many people using this method of quoting but wouldn't have a clue how to do it myself .

That works too! Bit of a pain if using your phone though.

Could be a car bra, to protect the front end from road chips...

or, if you live somewhere really cold, it could be a way of blocking the very cold air from reaching the radiator and ensuring it does not freeze and that the engine runs at the right temperature. The 2cv had this as it is an air cooled car and would run too cold in sub-zero temperatures.

Or it could just be idiots wrecking their cars .

Believe it or not you can also get a "tank bra" for motorcycles. Looks something like this ...

I used to have one on my old VN2000 and made the mistake of telling a non-biking mate what it was called. The abuse was merciless and carries on to this day.

Does cooking burgers on a George Foreman grill reduce the calories in the burger?

It's designed to allow the fat to run off into the little tray, rather than say in a frying pan where the burger will soak it back up. There will be some calories in the fat that you aren't consuming.

Not by as much as swerving the burger in the first place, fatty.

Or is there no claim at all?

Probably only if the object itself fell off the car rather than being kicked up. The piece of metal that fell off a Continental DC-10 was deemed responsible for the Concorde crash:

Yes, same has happened to me, I am hardly followed by anyone apart from the occasional US sports star.
I assume there is a some automatic program that runs that makes them a follower of you, the idea being I assume that you follow them back as a matter of courtesy which increases their followers to such an extent that they make money from advertising etc...
I cannot fathom any other reason.
