Megnetised?

Are you sure the round part is fixed to the bolt-head or maybe just pushed in for whatever reason?

Oil grade

Red Cow Roundabout

The Red Cow was the name of a pub in Dublin, and a nearby roundabout took the same name.
It has many entrances but exits are harder to find, hence it became known as Mad Cow Roundabout !
