Remember those sexist ads from the fifties with pin-up girls draped across car hoods to sell them?

And the copy starts "Armed with an exceptional pair of large (151x140 mm) fans, Thermalright’s $80+ Archon SB-E X2 gives upright air cooling a slightly new look."... Isn't it terrible?

Not exactly a news flash...just sayin'.

I'm not anti-social. I'm pro-solitude.

It's "You, your girl and your johnson".


I love "You've got your sunrise, you caught a prize" Ha ha. "You and your johnson. A way of life for over 50 years." (Is that 50yrs guaranteed? bwhahahaha)
