Suzuki Swift

I pity Suzuki. Ever since the 'assault' on 'our' queen everybody's making jokes about it. From the beginning everybody was talking about the Suzuki Swift the crazy guy was driving in. Not even a stolen car. It was his own car.
I guess nobody is buying a Suzuki Swift anymore in the Netherlands.

The other weird thing that happened is that right after the 'assault' his name, address and telephone number was all over internet. That's not correct. These websites didn't have time to check if someone was there. His girlfriend, perhaps his child.

And to final my 'thoughts in short' about the 'assault', suddenly 'our' queen is more popular.

I still have difficulties understanding the working of the human brain

Volvo P1800

Say 'Volvo' to me, and I would reply: where are the two kids (a boy and a girl) and the Golden Retriever?

Untill I saw this car just now. I would like this one parked in front of my house (figure of speach, cars aren't allowed in front of my house)

Fukitorimushi Robot Vacuum Cleaner, Panasonic

This thing gives me the creeps. Not because, as most people say, it looks like a worm (I don't agree with this by the way). But it moves too slow and it keeps moving & returning to it's loading station. I would get nightmares with this thing in the house.

Lebanon - Fashion

I wonder if advertising in for example Lebanon, like this one, is for the upperclass. Anyone knows the answer? I can also imagine that advertising in the Arab world is different per country, more than in for example Europe or the States. Have to look into this. Don't know a lot about it
