Well yeah if I look back at the post now I'd probably pick that way of phrasing it, but just at the time I felt like putting something less generic, and clearly didn't put much thought into it, as I'm sure anyone here with multiple thousands of posts has probably made a few posts without thinking!

Well, in answer to your question, I have a well paid job and probably earn more than most around here. But no, I'm not "completely loaded". It was all paid for by work. We had to go out on business to meet some clients, and knowing that two of us were big Formula 1 fans, my boss timed the trip so that we could catch the grand prix while we were out there. I may have a well paid job, but it's not that well paid, and I'd struggle to justify the cost of flying to Singapore just to watch a grand prix. Although that said, I am going to be spending an absolute fortune to go racing in America in a couple of months. Were I being sensible I'd put the money I've saved towards paying off the mortgage instead. But you only live once, right?

Lucky sod :lol: who is it you work for btw? Then again I can't talk considering a girl I'm with paid for silverstone completely for me as an 18th present!

What kind of racing are you doing in America?

I work for a syndicate of professional gamblers (mostly betting on football). We do a lot of business in Asia because that's where the money is in the betting world. I race drag cars (I came 3rd in the UK national championship this year for my class). In America, I'll be driving one of these:

Somewhere around 3000bhp. 0-200mph in less than 6 seconds. Should be good :-)

Bizarrely, you're not the first person to tell me that. I think you're all misguided, though.

But as a friend pointed out to me, my life sounds pretty good on paper. He was rather pleased with himself for being a comic book author and professional magician. Then he realised I was a professional gambler and race car driver...
