  1. I'm sure they've done their market research, and know that its usually women who buy the razors for their husbands or sons. They've done focus groups and tests. They knew it would be 'controversial', which gets them A LOT of exposure without buying the ad time. But having said that, I think its a completely valid ad. For a brand that has traded on "The best a man can get", its entirely appropriate to explore this theme. Some people are saying it implies all men need to do better, not just the small percentage who treat women badly. But this misses the point - it is indeed every single man who can and should do better, because we can all do more to call out bad behaviour in others, which too often we walk past as if its someone elses problem.

    homophobe and misogynist???
  3. a few good artists, but overall soooo boring. they almost seem embarassed to name them all.
  4. So, I remember Australia's cardinal George Pell once debated Richard Dawkins, and argued that only people that had faith had a moral compass for deciding what is right and wrong. So, yesterday Cardinal Pell was found guilty of "historical sexual offences" - he molested some boys back in the 70s or 80s - BUT due to a suppression order sought by his defence lawyers, the Australian press is not allowed to report that he was even found guilty. The Pope has quietly not renewed his appointment to his private council, but he remains a cardinal and holds some other position in the vatican. My oh my the evil that religion has done to this world.

    Your top albums of 2018

    what a boring year for new music. The only album I was interested in was Robyn, and thank god it was brilliant.
  6. So Mr Mould removed the mold! Seriously, Fake or Fortune is one of my favourite shows. I love a good art mystery. I'm also in love with Fiona Bruce.

    Trump / US politics thread 🚽

    The senates a bit funny because the seats up for election were those from six years ago, which was very strongly Democrat then, so even though the republicans picked up some seats, their support compared to the 2016 election is still lower I think. So if the trend continues, Democrats should get control of the senate back in 2 (or maybe 4) years. Some good news in Florida - even though the republicans won the governor race, in the future ex-felons will get back the right to vote, which currently unfairly discriminates strongly against minority groups, so expect more democratic support in next election. (Unless there are further unfair barriers introduced like voter ID cards). As crazy as Australia can get sometimes, I am so thankful that here every citizen has the right to vote. So, can someone explain - can the House get rid of a president?

    Australia's political shambles

    I was reading quickly and thought this said "the Horizontal church".

    Australia's political shambles

    It really didn’t matter what they decided today. They will be kicked out at the next election. Good riddance.

    Australia's political shambles

    It’s a disgrace, showing us at our worst. These people get paid a fortune and carry on like selfish children. But, I wonder if other countries might wish it were a bit easier to get rid of their leader?
  11. In fairness, once you've been in business class, its very very hard to ever go back to economy.
  12. ... and now we have to put up with stupid arguments for another 3 months.

    Chris Cornell Has Died

    Stunned. Saw him live about 10 years ago when he was doing his solo thing. Such a talent and such a loss to the music world. He had such a powerful and emotional voice.

    George Michael thread

    Very sad and a real loss.
  15. i think you're right. The GOP will have told him to do exactly as they say, otherwise they will get rid of him.
