The most annoying advertisement that I have ever seen

The most annoying advertisement that I have ever seen is a video ad of the game Dead by daylight . I was playing a game on my mobile, and came across this ad. The audio and visual nearly gave me a heart attack. I'm not a fan of horror genre. This unexpected ad, especially the audio, is so annoying that I turn off the audio completely on my phone to avoid any future nasty surprises like this.

Fiat Bravo 80 16V SX

Fluid reservoir for Power steering, brake circuit, windscreen wiper, engine oil, but I can't find the symbol for the Coolant In this picutre, the power steering reservoir with an orange cap, while windscreen wiper fluid a blue cap on top left.  You can see the orange coloured sticker on the brake fluid reservoir. Coolant reservoir with a hot steam warning, it says you must not open the cap when the engine is hot. The battery.

Dole and Brew

When I was in Northern Ireland, my colleague said to me his mate has been "back on the dole".  Yesterday, a Chinese delivery driver said to me, he's been barred by the BREW, I asked if he's not allowed to drink beer. He laughed, and said BREW means jobcentre. I asked why? he said, I don't know, I have to ask my dad. Some say 'brew' is a Scottish colloquial usage of BUREAU, Jobcentre Plus used to be called employment bureaux. I have picked up couple of Scottish words since I moved to Glasgow, such as Ay (Yes), sybees (spring onion), weans (Child), Nae Mair (No more).
