Paypal, what a shite company they really are

Paypal, what a load of utter shit. I'd rather cut off a limb than deal with these wankers again.
"Hi I'd like to transfer some cash into my paypal account"
"Certainly sir, we can do that. Oh here's the thing though. I know we are an online company and we are meant to be using state of the art systems, but the money won't be cleared to use for 7-9 days.
7-9 days, are you having a fucking laugh? That's a holiday pal. It is not the length of time I expect to wait to have funds cleared in this day and age.
Hello! hello! hello! this isn't the Flintstones, it's the 21st Century. Get with the programme, sort out your payment mechanisms - fucking speed it up. Chop chop!

Grasshopper Folding Electric Bike

Now normally when someone mentions the words 'electric bike' you picture an ugly, colossal grey mess with the design input of a turd. No not Slough, but you get the idea.

So when I saw this on Inhabitat it came as a bit of a shock. Although I imagine I'll have a bigger shock when I find out the price.

Still I'd certainly consider getting one and I'm really not big on bikes. Or indeed exercise.

Rod Blagojevich

Ok, so you have 'Blag' in your surname and you look like this.

Has no-one suspected that he might be a bit of a crook? He is in politics after all, which is usually a giveaway no matter what country you're from.

Here in the UK, we work on the same principal regarding politicians - they're all a bit dodgy, the more you hear from them, the more they're lining their pockets. They occasionally get caught, though not often enough sadly, via the fantastic investigative journalists dotted throughout industry stalwarts such as The Sun, The Star and err..... The Oban Times.

Who can forget the legend that is Jonathan Aitken - what a fucking arsehole he was - anyone
know what he's doing now?

Anyway, back to Rod Blagojevich - is this the start of the Republican backlash or is he a proper politician - a 'wrong un' who just can't deal with the power thing so early on?
