Shopping online and the advertised price being very low to entice you, then the item you actually want is far higher with a ridiculously inflated shipping price to boot.

Was (very) idly looking at monitors on ebay yesterday - $350 for the monitor, $225 for postage...

When the advertising is in English and the user manual is in Chinese.

TV aliens. I don't care that they somehow speak English but the amazing coincidence that they nearly all seem to be built on anthropoid morphology and possess human facial characteristics just completely undermines my ability to suspend disbelief. How is it that throughout our near-infinite universe, biological evolution keeps coming up with simian templates for advanced life forms, complete with five fingers and toes? Intelligent or not, the Designer sure seems to be lacking imagination. 

 



Daleks...

 

I wonder if Trumpy watched too many Dr Who episodes. The Daleks favourite word, Exterminate!, seems to be the main thought that passes thru his brain.

I'm still trying to figure out why Americans call petrol gas when it's obviously a liquid

 

(yes, I know gases can exist in other states, no need for pedants to point this out, this is a fun thread)
