Facebook | Marketplace - Skoda Felicia Fun Truck 1999 (The TRK)

Duncan's selling the truck!

A sad day for all that know of it or have experienced a drive in the wonder that is the Felicia Fun.  I hope he gets what he wants for it, it's a bloody good car!

Pay up or else!

This story has really intriguied and amused me in equal parts.  It's also annoyed me.  The state of the world with these automated systems that go wrong so often and are then believed fully by the companies that run them.

In reality that should have been spotted, someone should have gone "this isn't right, oh yeah I forgot to carry the one", but no.  It went through the systems, passed on to debt collection, who probably had to approve the thing in the first place, and then made it to his doorstep.

I look forward to the legal action they are threatening him with, be interesting to hear them justify the bill....

P.S. well worth reading the comments as some people have done interesting maths!

Mike's lost it

See for youself (Facebook account probably required)

I hope it doesn't run in the family!

Heroes

Well we finished watching Heroes last night.  I was told that Sylar was badly cast and that the end would dissapoint.  Neither of these were true, I felt satisfied with the conclusion but still hungering for season 2.

When it came out in the states I was sceptical of the hype, believing it to be another overrated series like 24 or Lost, I was wrong... very, very wrong!

It's been an amazing season and a truly gripping story line, so if you haben't been watching it, get out there and find it!  If you have been following on the BBC then you have some real treats in store for you over the coming weeks/months.

The DVD is out in the states on August 28th, so if you have a multi-region player, grab a copy and be ahead of your friends.  If you're following it on the BBC then you have some real treats in store and it's well worth making sure you catch it every week.

I just wish everyone would hurry up and watch it so I can talk about what I think is to come in Season 2!

Roller-Skating Ninjas

Excatly how i describe above.  Apparently a film by Godfrey Ho, may be worth checking out some of his stuff if it's as loony as this!

Back into blogging

So i've been meaning to make a new site in a long time and technically i still haven't bothered because this is all just MT4 in (most of) it's default settings.  Anyway, here it is, hopefully less "teen angst" and more "this is funny or interesting, you should know about it too".

That and i'm far too lazy to e-mail people.
