More like annoying than making me angry, Google thinks I'm a Muslim. There's always an advert for Muslim brides or some religious event. A few years ago Adeel was talking about Ramadan, so I googled it out of curiosity. Did it a few times when he mentioned stuff. I do have Ad-blocker, but only on my laptop.
I can relate, but for me it was adverts from dating sites for russian import wives... (wtf) I have no idea on how they made the connection -> reads a lot about videogames and spend way too much time on browsing TVtropes = I'm a middle-aged buissnessman looking for a russian girlfriend! ??? One other reason to use Ad block.

That seems like a pretty cut and dry connection to me. Everyone knows that anyone who likes videogames is a lonely basement dwelling virgin. Who else would be a better candidate for a Russian girlfriend. (laugh)

There's a functional door bell on my front door, when someone presses it I can hear it throughout the house. Half the people who come to my door give it a gentle knock so I have no idea they're there until they've been stood there ages.

You need a sign saying "RING THE DAMN BELL!"

I've been thinking of adding such a sign too lately, specially our postman doesn't seem to know how it works.  (wrong)

In what way does he misuse your doorbell?

Does he always ring twice? 8-)
