Friday Banal/dodgy thread


One of the things I like to do when bored is look at listings on local Craigslist or Gumtree pages for the clearly dodgiest listing. Today I am torn between:

And the slightly subtler:


Number 2 sounds a bit


Except they very notably are advertising only to women.



I’m on the phones until 5.30pm today :expressionless:

Need tea.


Anyone been to new york in mid january?

I’m going for work and going to spend the weekend there before but what the hell can you do when its like minus 5 out?


But they are experienced, professional and have been CRB checked. What could possibly be shady about any of it?


My bored at work thing is to search for the coldest and hottest cities by typing in weather Kuwait into google or whatever. Actually v fun 10/10 timewaster

i went when it was cold once (feb I think) - ice skating in the park with snow all around was nice

we mainly just did the normal tourist stuff but with coats and scarves on


If you ever feel bad about cold winters think of oymyakon


I’m waiting for my car to be serviced and trying to drink the showroom’s espresso machine dry.

I’ve been fawning over the Giulia Quadrifoglio they’ve got on show in the hope they’ll offer me a test drive but don’t think it’s working.


i’ve been in mid february and it was fine

so to answer your question: dunno


The guy i was sitting with for lunch has just left and sat somewhere else so gonna post on the internet to make it look like i have friends and finish this wine.


I’ve been there in late January, christ it was cold. We went for nice walks up on the high line and went for lots of amazing food


Sounds about right. My friend is going to be meeting me out there for the weekend and it’s her birthday so I suspect we’ll mostly be eating vegan food and looking at stuff


caught between the desire to have lunch and to not get out of bed




has anyone noticed the change in colour scheme on google maps? it seems the colours are far more similar now. imagine it’s not great for colourblind folk


yes it’s fucking shit


“Hi, I’m interested in that car, can I have a test drive please?” should do the trick.
