hahahaha.. electric rake
umm wtf does this have to do with technology???
I like there new honest approach... I wonder how many people have signed up now ?
Funny post that should be in the [jokes] section.
and i always got told honesty is the best policy.......
It must be a joke :P
Well I wouldn't complain about the intrestrate, you should try paying of a loan in Iceland the intrestrate is about 7% and then you have to add the inflation rate 7% a year which adds to the capital of the loan so the rate is more than 14% per year. I would be happy to have a loan with 7% with out connection to inflation. Well that is the price you have to pay for living on a small island.
What the hell is this doing on the front page? A complete waste of time IMO.
I believe it's calles
A: FridayB: humour
At least they're honest about it
This def does not belong on the front page, but major props for finding something funny.
Sounds just like Bank of America
the Subaru P1 is a beautiful cari own 3 of them
Not luckier than me, I own 3 porsches GT2...
Sounds like a deal just for that "electric rake".
How is this frontpage news?
Stuff like this belongs in the forums, not here.
Well, believe it or not, the staff do have a sense of humour tucked away :D
Personally, i find stuff like this funny, and i think it should be here - and in the end, its their front page, so they can put what they like on it
Sounds just like the sort of thing that HBOS would do lol
also i dont think this is near worthy of putting on Neowin's front page...
joke are jokes but its photoshopped or fixed ....
im mean HELLO!!!! MC FLY!!!!!
lol here at Cadillac we work with banks often and this is great
hack or ****ed off employee?
Theres the car and down on the page you can find out about Bank of Scotlands loan, but its not the same text. :sleeping:
looks like someone made it up cos if u look carefully you can see distortions all around the image
Always have to be the one to denounce it eh?
They're called JPEG compression artifacts. It comes from taking a screenshot and saving it as a JPEG, some quality is lost.
The background is a solid colour, so if you wanted to, you could easily modify it without a trace.
SOLD.....where do I sign up.....:P
slow day for the news, eh?
hahaha nice find!
For all canadians that know the commercial "Hands in my pocket hands in my pocket ......."
Reminds me of one of the Outrageous Lie of the Year awards from the Liar's Club:
I like the new Capital One commercials... "Ma'am, it looks like you have bankers."
Man, the first "Hands in my pocket" commercial had me LMAO each time I saw it. The others that followed got a bit old.
It's probably got them more signups today...
rofl. Nice one.
Very very nice.
Steven Parker, it's LOANS, not LOAN'S. What you wrote denotes a possessive case, not plurality, which should have been the case.
Uh-oh.. who called the grammar police?
Nobody; it was the syntax and punctuation police on this one.
Oh, the irony!
Also, Chicane-UK probably never went to school and therefore has issues with the authority, i.e. 'da gramma poleeece'. I will rest my case.
muahahah nice.. :D
shouldn't this be jokes and funny stuff?
So, Bliar, Reid and Brown all jocks basically have slit our wrists and nealry bled us dry, now their freakin bank is doing it.
Probably a cheesed off employee.
lol let me put you straight mr i love england
1) Bank of Scotland is OWNED by Halifax Building society (ENGLISH OWNED)2) what about you all STEALING and selling OUR North Sea oil & Gas and keeping 90% of the revenue in England. for that alone we gave you Blair, brown and Reid heheh seems fair dont ya think?
as we say up here matey yer fu` o wind n pish
sorry to go off topic a little , but if there is one word I hate the english using it is the word 'Jock' , I suppose you go around calling Asian people 'pakis' ?? No ? then stop calling us Scots 'Jock' ! Just shows up your ignorance
Ever notice how the English have a derogatory term for all the other home countries
Scottish = JockIrish = Paddy/MickWelsh = Taff/Di
but don't have one for theirselves ........ may I suggest c***s !!
:angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry:
While we're on the subject I'm not very fond of being called a Yank either.
Actually, I never hear anyone call a Welsh person a taff or a di. The most common name I hear is (forgive me, please) sheep sh***er.
as we say up here matey yer fu` o wind n pish ;)
That said I bank with the Royal Bank of Scotland.
Nothing to do with them being Scottish.. they're just labour scumbags, robbing from the hard working folks who actually get out of bed and go to work for a living, so that they can give it back to the dossers and doleites. Bring on a Conservative government I say!
It was a sarcastic comment Bobby.
Calling people Paki is quite interesting as it means 'cool' in urdu.
I doubt my great Indian grandmother would like me to call her a paki, as that would be insulting, dare I associate her with pakistanis.
Now get off your big bucked tooth high horse and drink your milk.
Actually there is a deragatory term for the english.We call them brits, or brittish
Quit being a Porridge Wog cragdoo. Every place in the world has slang for one another, and it's even more ignorant to catch strong feelings from mere words.
He wasn't being racist.
Just look at Germany, where the Conservatives just increased the German Vat from 16% to 19%, the Health Services are reformed to death, and the education budget has been drastically cut so universities had to greatly increase the fees for the students, just to name the most critical points.
If you really want to flush the UK down the toilet, then a Tory government would be certainly the best way to do it.
Politics in the US follows along the same lines with the following being the ultimate truth:
Democrats = Tax and Spend financing. You might get something back from the government, but the extra taxation pretty much drains you dry. They believe up front in big government, and at least are not lying to you about it.
Republicans = Borrow and Spend financing. Claim to cut taxes and stand for smaller government, but borrow large amounts of money, sending the national debt into orbit so that future generations will be bled dry while you expand the government's size for your own pet projects. If you are in a porkbarrel project, the yellow stuff might trickle down and you might get something back from the government, however; if you're Halliburton, the gravy train just goes on forever.
Politicians and goverments exist to expand and consume all future available resources so that the present is stagnated into giving them as much power as they can extract.
chill out dude.
everyone knows the english are ponces. just look at what ireland did to them in the rugby today. totally smashed to pieces
