  1. Ever since this topic popped up, I was racking my brain trying to remember a site I had seen about ten years ago covering just this subject. Yep, this is it! Great fun!

    I hate Yacht brokers

    According to the OP, only the original owner signed it, not the broker.

    Brexit WTF, WTF

    Don't worry, I'm a big fan of gallows humor But these days reality seems to transcend anything we could have imagined just a few short years ago drawing by Franquin from his series Last Laugh for those SERIOUSLY into gallows humor!

    Brexit WTF, WTF

    Glad you can see some humor in this with 100.000 and rising US citizens dead. Rest of the world will seriously have to start implementing travel bans from the US if they don't start making a serious effort to get this under control

    Frankly my friend, we don't give a damn... As far as the oaf across the bigger pond, he's been wondering if he should be using insulin... https://crooksandliars.com/2020/05/trump-weirdly-wonders-if-he-should-use

    The rise of the KAREN

    The thing that often strikes me the most, is that a lot of those clips are actually recorded by the Karen herself... The complete lack of self awareness is staggering

    Brexit WTF, WTF

    Long time ago, I heard (don't ask me where but it could have been on the BBC's World Service) that to be able to be functional in speaking any language, you need a vocabulary of around 7.000 - 9.000 words. English however appears to be an anomaly, in that you can be functional with only 3.000 - 5.000 words, which makes it easier to pick up than most other languages. Perhaps this explains more than anything else why English has become the global Lingua Franca it is today.

    The 2020 AVIATION thread

    WTF went wrong there? Seems to be some confusion over which way they were heading, left or right... That could have gotten very ugly, very quickly

    APPLE , IPAD

    I once spent some time listing all the passwords, pin numbers, door and lockcodes etc. I was using, and ended up at 91 - this was 20 years ago!
