    Very good website. Jakob Nielsen would be proud.

    I'm not in the market for leasing a car in the UK, but must've spent half an hour gawking at that website, including playing the "stupid game." Fascinating stuff. And kittens!!! Ling knows what he's doing.

    I was thinking a 'she', she is about the most uni-sex person I have seen in a while, well 16 minutes. While we are on PC, what would be the proper term for the indeterminate.

    You are correct, Ling is a "she." My faith in womanhood has been restored, after taking a hit from all the Kellyanne crap.

    Love the Q&A:

    How can I interact with your staff?

    I have made you a special button, which when pressed will play "The Proclaimers" in my office. This will encourage Guy to get annoyed at the webcam, because he is Scottish. Do not press the button if you're easily offended, or if children are watching! Pressing it too much spoils the fun though and he will stop responding as the noise drives him mad. You can also LIVE CHAT to my staff. You'll soon be able to interact by uploading full HD images to the BIG SCREEN.

    She also claims that the skeleton you see on the office webcam is, in fact, real, and is that of a former employee.

    EDIT: "The best FAQs in the world" is worth perusing. I don't have a clue what's going on in the video answers, but it's clearly genius at work.

    The best FAQ in the world really might be the best FAQ in the world, or wuuurld as Ling says.


    Edit to add, an hour or so later:

    I just wasted the better part of my afternoon watching FAQs and playing "stupid game" on website.

    Isn't it wonderful?? Truly creative genius at work. I even read about her life story, her appearance on the UK's version of Shark Tank, the missile truck, the staff bios.....

    My husband thinks I'm nuts, but I'm a comedy junkie.

    Oh and I can't wait to check the live web cam of the office!

    EDIT: Always something else to watch/read. They have video of the missile truck ad:

    Yep, on Monday, poor Guy is going to hear "The Proclaimers" at least once from me and probably once or twice from you.

    One of my favorite "Best FAQs in the World" from Ling's Cars:



    But I haven't seen them all. Yet. I actually had to get some work done before I could leave the office.

    This web site is a great find. Thanks.

    This actually happened.

    Let the puns about 'fowl balls' commence.



    Monkhouse: I want to go like my Dad did – peacefully, in his sleep, not screaming in terror like his passengers.

    System: Fake news?? Trump's a Fake President, for God's sake.

    Plat: I'd rather fellate a syphilitic goat than own a Cervelo.

    Homer: I believe that children are our future. Unless we stop them now.

    I'm envious of people who not only have creative talent, but get to use it as part of their career!

    Another good one:

    Could this have been faked? It looks like something somebody would try to sell at Pawn Stars' shop.

    If not, it's fascinating.

    You got me. Though I'm not sure there's any automatic huge monetary value attached to something like that... therefore, the incentive to fake it isn't so much in evidence.

    IOW, one could probably find much better things to hoax to bring in money.

    It's just a loose pic with no story attached.

    I've wondered if it might be fake but I don't think so. They are both full metal jacket military bullets. They look old and the rifling on the right one isn't as sharp as it would be if it had been fired recently...but they could be artificially aged.
    It is possible someone shot a stationary bullet and aged them but I can't imagine any way they could make money with it.

    On second thought, the one on the left doesn't look to have any rifling marks so likely wasn't fired at all. Probably just a loose round that was hit by a bullet.

    Here's one from the Civil War:12-03-03-BulletsCollide-Petersburg-01.JPG
    That one's even more amazing, they had to hit exactly head-on or they would have only deflected each other.
    It's stunning to think of the odds of that happening.

    If MythBusters hasn't covered this yet, they should!

    I got him these: Sweet Ballz Cake Balls | Online Desserts | Cake Ball Company Online "Saw these and thought of you.......the white ones anyway."

    Fast forward to married years, I lucked out with a wife who isn't into all that jazz. She specifically thinks expensive jewelry is a colossal waste of money (win!) and she says she doesn't want anything for V day (win!).

    My son who's now 16 and I always get her some flowers and a stupid card anyway, which she always seems to enjoy as she's admonishing us for doing it.

    Chicks, man. Am I right?

    Working from home today. Might ask them through Live Chat to get up and dance or do something since I'm bored.

    I was going to make Guy listen to The Proclaimers. But I got too busy at work.

    I feel bad for them having to listen to that all day.......assuming they really do play it in the office! No wonder they're all wearing headphones

    Listened to "Joan's" story, it was pretty funny: http://getmortified.com

    This is like The Moth storytelling, but focuses on embarrassing stuff from the past.

    Have to check my diary from 25 years ago, it's a goldmine.......
