I can't really say this is particularly irksome, but I didn't want to start a whole new thread.

I recently put up some paintings for sale on bidorbuy. Within a day or two, I started noticing bidorbuy banner ads on any websites where they have ads. This sort of thing:



This makes sense; most commercial sites now have software that keeps track of users, in order to put up targeted ads, and I am not paranoid about it. What I did find funny is that bidorbuy is trying to sell me my own paintings!

I think they need to go tinker a bit with that software... :-)

I am so, so gatvol of people feeling self entitled to "power" or "authority".

I am so NOT impressed by your MBA.
I am so NOT impressed that you drive a BMW but live in a previously disadvantaged suburb because its cheap.
I am so NOT impressed with ANYTHING you think you are because of what you either own or achieve.

Really, its meaningless in its totality. You know fark all and I will correct you each and every time and believe me,

"Old age and treachery will always beat youth and exuberance." effing try me.

Excellent rant! Most of us feel like that every now and again  Grin. If you are lucky enough; it really helps to escape from the corporate rat race.

You are now under obligation to regale us each time "Old age and treachery ... beat youth and exuberance."
