What does that help with?  Getting certified in business essentials?

I know I am always on the look out for Filipino and Asian women on dating sites. So I'm thrilled the banner for it still shows up.

I've been getting an Arab women dating advertisement, which I'd never really considered. But hey, why not...(double clicks)

BTW: Here's the type of Arab women ads I'm getting:

I was having a similar conversation with The Stunning Mrs. Vance the other night (which will make no sense if you're not a fan of The Big Bang Theory): Penny or Priya? (Okay, Priya is Indian, not Persian, but she has very pretty eyes.)

Let's take a straw poll, shall we?

Andy, I think your not giving us a fair sample. First, you have a beautiful picture of Priya and then a picture of Penny's boobs.  I would need to see Priya's boobs to make a fair comparison. XD

AndyVance's picture

Yeah, so clearly that didn't work out the way I intended... The Stunning Mrs. Vance said it's perfectly okay for me to have a TV crush on Penny, 'cause well, Penny. Mrs. Vance does not like Priya however (the character, since we don't actually know the very attractive young lady who plays her). Ergo my clever juxtaposition was supposed to be a pretty picture of Priya followed by a picture of Penny more or less rolling her eyes... When I was thumbing through Google images this morning I sort of missed the portion of the picture everyone else kind of fixated on (I should have just posted the Kaley Cuoco bikini pics and been done with it).

And for the record, I didn't really find any comparable Priya pictures re: your request/suggestion.

Psst, Andy.  With the new site upgrades, you can "resize" the picture you post.  Just sayin...

I'm sure it was an honest mistake...

Hey Unky, let it go.  Have you ever seen what Russian Mothers look like?  Trust me, before you get in a long term relationship, look at the mother, because that is what you will end up marrying.  The same goes for the fairer sex of our community, except it will be the father. 

Thank me later.

I couldn't care less about it, lol. I just think that girl is gorgeous and I won't be convinced otherwise. It's just like Andy's attempt at trying to portray a "bad" Kaley and it just can't be done. I don't think either will ever look bad but I also don't ever anticipate being with them (which is a shame for them....because I am awesome).

Oyster's picture

You could always refer to her as "My future ex wife".  I will give you a hint though, don't ever try this, no matter how good of a sense of humor your spouse may have.  When you introduce her to people, never say, "This is my first wife, (insert name)"  (or second wife if the case may be.) They don't seem to think it's very funny for some odd reason.

+1 HS

Apparently my first wife needs to have an incredible sense of humor. I should test that out from the get go.

Unky, you may be in luck.  I just saw an ad for a Russian dating site.  Maybe your girl is on it.  It can't hurt to try, right?

Shipping is free with a Ruskie Prime account, including return shipping, or so I've heard.

+2 HS
Unky Buck's picture

Will she be sent via Ruskie Prime drones? Unless a drone drops her off at my door, I don't know if I'll do it. Too much hassle going to the post office...

...

Earle's picture

Unfortunately, no. There was a slight mishap with the bridal drones being mistaken for the spy drones and several brides were lost. It was quite tragic really, as they were uninsured. You can get home delivery for a nominal charge, but be advised that they will not leave your bride unless there is someone there to sign for her.

Just say no to italics abuse.

CALPOPPY's picture

Earle, you fell for that excuse? The FAA wants you to believe that because they sent cease and desist letters to Ruskie Prime to stop using drones. Even though they are a Russian company, they're still not allowed to operate drones for commercial purposes in US air space. And the fact that they must fly the brides above a 400ft altitude causes a safety hazard if they lose a limb or a shoe.

I'm a hurtin' buckaroo.

I always hate it when my wife is shopping on her laptop, and then I'll see ads for whatever she was shopping for in 11W within 5 minutes.  Any time I see ads like that I yell at her and she's like "whoopsie!" with her evil smile and half a giggle.  She's lucky that she looks so flippin' cute when she does that!

Google and other advertisers have the ability to use your browsing history and/or search history to target advertisements.  In the case of my wife and I, because we are behind the same router, we appear to be browsing from the same IP (we are distinguished only by port number to the outside world), and in the case of Google advertisements, sometimes my Google account is logged in on the wife's laptop.  This causes our mutual browsing history to show up in the other's targeted advertisements.  So my wife goes to realtor.com and all of a sudden I'm getting Columbus real estate listings showing up everywhere.  If she searches for Asian and Arab women, I get those ads too.
