No no, spent. Now it spends nothing, relying solely on free Facebook Groups pages.

Which probably makes a lot of sense. Buying a new car isn't a decision you'd likely make as a result of clicking on a FB ad.

Oh no, they used to spend $40 million, $10 million of which went on FB click advertising. That's now stopped. They still spend $30 million on the Facebook pages.

Just how they manage that I have absolutely no idea.

"Dive Source SCUBA Watersports" Did you mean, Dinosaurs School for Watersports?

No. But please take me there, smartphone.

It is theorised that email scammers write unconvincing emails because you'd have to be stupid to fall for them. It means they can be sure that the people who reply (and thereby they must expend effort scamming) are particularly vulnerable to scams.

Insuring a 1993 Toyota hatchback in the UK will cost a 23 year-old individual such as me £4356.98 per year for third-party cover, with an excess of £250. This is the lowest quote I was able to find on both Confused.com and GoCompare.

Insuring the same vehicle right here in New Zealand... £140 per year. £140. And that's with fire and theft protection, as well as full road breakdown cover for up to three breakdowns a year. Zero excess.

That's why I just bought a 1993 Toyota hatchback. Have fun not driving guys.

I just love my beautiful planet too much. That, and the tram.

True, but we sadly don't have a "Furious Masturbation" forum.

The British army has 9,500 troops in Afghanistan.

It has 18,200 at the Olympics.

How many G4S guards does it take to change a lightbulb?

6 soldiers and a policeman

The thing that caught my attention was that he claimed knowledge of the pharmacodynamics of heroin.
"I dunno how long I could be a vet before I got bored and started shagging stuff."

James: "You shouldn't have any problem getting a place in Camp America."
Eoghan: "Might be setting myself up here - why?"
(pause)
James: "Because you're camp."

"Before you start - I am not a racist: I hate everybody, regardless of other issues. But I especially hate Yankees! - by which I mean anybody from Georgia or further north."

He's a disgrace. At least I gave you the Roger Talk early on. But such is life, well handled James.

Chile's murder rate is roughly comparable with Midsomer, the village in Midsomer Murders.
