grab the other persons details then call your insurer,
Just because I got caught out with this... as soon as they give you a phone number - RING IT
Dodgy buggers give fake numbers...
Take photos of both cars - and if you can, sneak one in with the other person's face without making it too obvious...

Placebo is awesome,
Particularly when it's fast-acting extra-strength placebo
Random stuff - I've just cleaned up and done a reset on my fish tank - had a bout of cyano-bacteria/blue-green slime algae - which is a REAL bugger to clean up - had three attempts over two months without success - the tank would just be coated with sheets of filthy swamp smelling slime within days
Had to take the "nuke it from orbit" approach - move the fish out to a temporary holding tub - strip the gravel and bleach it, rinse, repeat, X3 - place the plants in complete darkness for a fortnight - which kills some of them but starves ALL the CB - clean and recycle the filters and use phosphate and nitrate removal pads to get past New Tank time - takes a fortnight to get the tank back up and running for fish
Buy a UV filter to help kill off any bacteria that is free floating
Buy new plants to replace the losses
Tank is beautiful
But now I have the bug so I set up a small tank in my computer room - I want too many fish in it - so I buy a bigger second hand tank - and one of the aquarium stores is going out of business so stuff is cheap (including fish) - and I have enough other spares that I can set up a small tank for my daughter to have siamese fighters - and my wife loves black mollies - so she can have a small tank on her computer desk - and my daughter's big old yabby needs some extra little friends for company - and there's no way I can pass up a butterfly fish that size for only $25 - and I should probably set up a small tank so I can hand tame the black ghost before he goes back into the larger tank
4ft (200l) tank in the family room - nearby a 2ft (60l) yabby tank on one side of my daughter's computer and a small (20l) tank for siamese fighters (one male, two females) on the other side
Computer room has a 90 litre and two 20 litre tanks...
I think I may have a problem
So if anybody can help with my problem... you know, slip me the occasional guppy on the sly... I'll see if I can kick this habit and get clean
