    luxuary items

    Reading the article the studies are far from conclusive. There does not seem to be huge difference in bowel cancer rates between meat eaters and vegetarians. Not surprising really as many plants we eat are full of toxins, some natutrally occuriing and some added by farmers. That said humans would probably be better off if they added lots of insects to their diets like most other omnivores

    Blow Up Dolls

    The only one most people will have experienced is the Goldman Sachs model which has the official approval of every government in the western world. It fucks you up the arse and then steals all your money.

    Hoax hate

    Well I hope the 'Vietnam Veteran' did not serve with the 9th Division in the Mekong Delta because if Max Hastings book on the Vietnam War is to be believed they have the blood of a lot of ordinary Vietnamese peasants on their hands. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-23427726

    Hoax hate

    Not really interested if his school is run by Jesuits committed to turning the entire world Catholic or whether the kids that attend it are all complete knobheads. It is a non story over a trivial incident of absolutely no deep significance that is in no way merits the coverage it has received. Some people really need to pull their heads out of their arses.

    Freelander of Peace

    So what is the 97 year old delinquent going to get up to next ? I don’t suppose prison holds many fears for him since he has been locked up in one for the past sixty years.

    Hoax hate

    Not enough reps for this post. What can you say about a western society and media that has so lost the plot that it indulges in behaviour which can only be described as a form of child abuse. If you want to know how low the So-Called BBC has sunk look no further than the fact that they ran this story as a major news item on their web site. Meanwhile let’s all forget about the corporate crooks, usurious bankers etc who have been plundering the pockets of the ordinary working person. It seems so long as they make the right SJW noises like Gillette then they can get away with any shit they want.

    The Demonisation of Masculinity continues

    Absolutely. Many of the people who aided and abetted the crimes of the likes of Hitler, Stalin and Mao were not die hard believers in Nazi or Communist ideology. Instead, they simply followed the prevailing group think mainly because that is where they saw their own interest lay. I hate to say it but many people in modern corporate management thought gassing groups of society would advance their careers then they would be only too willing to do it.

    The Demonisation of Masculinity continues

    Advertising is based around creating a sense of dissatisfaction which can only be removed by purchasing the advertisers product. The Stones were bang on the money when they entitled their song Satisfaction. When you think about the way advertising operates it doesn’t matter which sort of masculinity is being promoted by Gillette because as sure as hell the advertisements will be suggesting that you don’t meet it.

    The Demonisation of Masculinity continues

    When I'm watchin' my TV And a man comes on and tells me How white my shirts can be But he can't be a man 'cause he doesn't smoke The same cigarrettes as me No difference from when those lyrics were written in the 1960s to now really. The pitch may have changed but Gillete's advertising team have really simply swapped one phoney message for another one.

    Favourite Food?

    When I lived in the North it was chips, beans and onion gravy after an evening in the pub.

    Macron - how long before wheels fall off

    That is only going to happen if the causes of discontent are addressed which as far as I can see has not happened. That means it is only going to fester a until some event reignited protests again.

    I Chose the Wrong Profession?

    Someone had been watching the promo film for the Kinks Dead End Street before they made that video.

    We are women, we are strong ....

    I think the Russians, Chinese and Vietnamese might beg to differ. I don't think you need exceptional physical strength to do a modern bin round since most of the lifting is done by machine. Women don't do it because they don't like the nature of the work.

    We are women, we are strong ....

    Look at any job that requires manual labour and chances are that it will be a white male doing it. Everytime I see demonstrations like today I look at things like buildings, roads, sewers, utility infrastructure and think it was almost certainly blokes who built it. In fact some of the core infrastructure like railways was originally built by people using little more than explosives, picks and shovels. Incidentally I don't really buy the idea that women can't do manual labour because in the past and in other societies they have done it. Instead I think modern western women for all their demands for equality are more than happy to let men do the dirty, arduous and dangerous jobs. There are some sectors like the care industry where this does not hold but that tends to be an exception rather than the rule.
