We're All Terrorists Now

Recommended Posts

http://forums.theregister.co.uk/forum/1/2010/08/11/police_terror_ad_scares/

The advert urged people to call the "Anti-Terrorist Hotline" to report suspicious behaviour such as anyone paying with cash "because he doesn't have a bank card", or keeping his curtains closed "because his house is on a bus route".

I pay with cash ALL the time, and shop keepers like me for it (as they get raped by card handling fees) and my curtains haven't been opened since 2008.

I keep my curtains closed so nosy neighbours can't see all the bombs I'm making.

No wait, I mean so that I have stable light for using photoshop... :ph34r:

I close my curtains so that the neighbours can't see me being a crazed drug-fueled lunatic.

Me too.

You left them open last Thursday evening according to my notes.

I keep the curtains closed because I consume quite a lot of porn. I pay in cash because on payday I withdraw enough cash to last me the month and leave my bank card at home when I go out.

I keep my curtains closed because it makes me feel like a real spy when I am 'observing' the activity of my neighbours.

I keep my blinds shut because it makes me feel like a real private detective when I idly walk up to them and briefly look outside, before allowing them to snap shut as I nonchalantly and slightly contemptuously question a client (who isn't there).

Nice.

I might do a bit of that this weekend.

"The man at the end of the street doesn't talk to his neighbours much, because he likes to keep himself to himself. He pays with cash because he doesn't have a bank card, and he keeps his curtains closed because his house is on a bus route."

Typical HPC poster?

I do find that keeping the curtains closed avoids uneven fading of one's linings, though.

I have curtains open and always pay with cash and I'm fvcking glad I don't live in the UK because if what I read here is anything to go by the place is completely mental.

Context is all. This is HPC.

Whenever I visit the UK it seems OK, a bit crowded and the infrastructure overrun, but OK.

Time away have giving me a period of reflection on life there and I know how to make the best of it now. Essentially take absolutely nothing seriously and treat those bastards with the contempt they so richly deserve.

My Palestinian midget likes the curtains closed when I'm going at him with a wad of twenies up the jacksie, while he makes bombs.

I have no curtains, and don't ever handle cash because that's the Rampton way...

The mash has a good take on it.

http://www.thedailymash.co.uk/news/society/police-condemned-over-anti%11single-guy-who-lives-in-his-own-filth-advert-201008112994/

The commercial, banned by the Advertising Standards Authority, warned people to be on the look out for men who keep to themselves, use cash instead of cards and always have their curtains closed

But Professor Henry Brubaker, of the Institute for Studies, said: "Yeah, that's a bloke in his mid to late 20s.

"He doesn't talk to you because he has a ******* hangover and in any case finds you quite stunningly tedious and the last thing he wants to do is waste valuable sofa time by subjecting himself to your twice daily bulletin of dreary gossip and racism.

"Meanwhile he uses cash because he's always skint - because he's always in the pub - and therefore has to constantly borrow money from those 20,000 percent interest, payday loan *******.

"And he keeps his curtains closed, not because he's building a bomb, but as a favour to you so that when you walk past his house you don't have to see him touching himself - or for that matter the piles of moulding detritus that are accumulating in his living room and, sitting in the middle of the coffee table, what may actually be a human turd.

"Let me assure you, when you wake up on the sofa in the middle of the night, in that awful, nauseating limbo between still-drunk and hungover, your toilet may as well be on the dark side of the moon.

"Plus, there's probably a really bad glare on the telly."

Professor Brubaker added: "You don't need to report him to the police, you need to get him a girlfriend."

Hang on, hang on, I can wear a Burka, but I can't keep my curtains closed? Can I wear my curtains?

I only pay local shopkeepers and tradesmen in cash, as big companies allow for the credit card charge when they price their goods. So I take advantage of the extended period of credit when I buy stuff as I am paying for it.

I keep my curtains closed to make sure I never see X-Quork (just in case his ever open a crack).
