    Reminds me of a recent translation bungle from a HK vendor. The Cantonese phrase for handmade was translated as "Made from Hands." It does not get more authentic than that.

    You can tell the time with a watch. You cannot tell the time with a couch. You can sit down on the floor. You cannot tell the time with the floor. Buy the watch.

    While we're at it, forget the house and buy a nice car instead - you can sleep in the car but you can't drive the house to work ...

    When I was a teenager, I did ponder whether it would be possible to get away with buying a Lamborghini Countach and living in it, instead of buying a house and driving a Toyota...

    Life is too short. Be selfish and buy the watch.
    Anyone planning to get married/ moving in together - keep individual bank account/ CC. Individual financial situation = you get to spend your hard earned bonus on stupid things.

    This is, clearly, a subjective issue.

    Personally, however, I don't think that getting married whilst concealing financial information from your spouse is a good thing and, by and large, I don't think that it's likely to contribute to a long and happy relationship. To my mind, openness and communication are much more likely to lead to a successful marriage, even though it may mean that you won't be able to purchase as many luxury goods for yourself.


    Ah, the old shaggin' wagon. Preferably with interior walls upholstered in plush, velour fabric and a lascivious mural painted on the outside.

    Forget that. Buy this. You get a couch, a car, a watch, and id assume be pretty comfortable to sleep in as well.
