Bloke buys supercar 'without proper consent from the wife'

Failed to correctly interpret other half's opinion

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

The married boy racers among you should take heed of the possible consequences of shelling out for a nice set of wheels without consulting the missus - something which the poor bloke flogging his Nissan Skyline GT-R evidently didn't do.

The blurb is all pretty standard stuff - £29k for the Bayside Blue, 180+ MPH beast featuring Alpine stereo with iPod connector, etc, etc, - but check out the bottom of the page for a sobering revelation:

Reason for Selling: Purchased without proper consent from the wife. Apparently "do whatever the F**K you want" does not mean what I thought.

Marvellous. Further proof, were it needed, that what your other half says and what she actually means may not exactly coincide. Consider yourselves warned. ®

Bootnote

A turbocharged ta very much to Lu Lu Leung for the tip-off.
