Nice. If you do ait long enough, a bizarre advert for Ye Olde Forex Trading slides into view regardless of whether you disable Adblock Plus or not:

Yes, you too can enjoy the delights of Bollywood, Hollywood and, uh, Lollywood? Never heard of that one. As you might expect, the content is a long list of ripped movies that you can grab from various sources - or so they claim. What actually happens is you end up wading through lots of Linkbucks links, before being dumped on movie-themed adverts that want you to enter

Can't say either prospect really appeals to me...


You article is quite useful.

Lollywood - refers to Lahore in Pakistan. You might also come across Nollywood (Nigiera).
