    Someone is trying to sell me a set of wheels for a Bentley.

    Retail price, £4,789 + VAT.

    But, I can have them for £1,995 inc VAT.

    Bargain.

    Just need the rest of the car now.

    Well, I have noticed that they seem to have finally given up pushing the horse deodorant at me - nothing for a few weeks now - but it may be that they feel that they may have misdiagnosed the real issue and it's actually bad breath that is the problem.

    Hence, they have decided that I need the services of an equine dentist.

    About a week ago, someone asked me to look out for a Harley Davidson for him.

    At the time, my phone was off and about a mile away.

    This afternoon, I realised that I had done absolutely nothing about it.

    Within five minutes, still without me having done anything, an advert for Harley Davidson popped up...

    I have a driving licence for all the classes that I'm ever likely to need.

    I've started getting adverts for driving lessons.

    In Killarney.

    In Polish.

    Apparently Odessa women prefer men over 45. 7 beautiful women to every man. I will remind the current MrsD of this when she gets above her station.

    I keep getting offered a course in 'ethical hacking.' :eek:

    Apparently I will learn all about: " …. network penetration testing, gaining access, and post exploitation."

    Is it me or does this sound vaguely pornographic ? Not the sort of thing Cheltenham Gentlefolk get up to. :embarrass:

    Penetration testing is a license to print money.

    Every thread on here goes off course at some point.

    That's why they only let you twiddle the knobs on the wireless, and kept you away from the navigation table..?

    Left hand down a bit...
