    I certainly can't see any man standing there having a shave, thinking, I must respect women more, because Gillette told me to and I am using their razor. I seriously just laughed at it. Next week there will be something new for people to moan about.

    Maybe even a no deal brexit. Let's all panic.

    Hey now, that would suggest an actual decision and some agreement on brexit! Bit of radical thought there.

    I've read a study about the average amount of advertising a US citizen is exposed to- radio, tv, billboards, everything- by the age of 8 and it was somewhere in the millions of hours or some ridiculous amount. We are saturated by ads, get desensitized and numb to them, and it seems the latest thing some companies are trying to do is hitch their wagon to some sort of social justice cause, as Nike did with Colin Kaepernick. All lipservice and completely insincere, as Otherside says.

    Yeah, exactly. I doubt anyone had an epiphany. "Yeah, that razor blade commerciel changed my life!" It reminds of that one time I skydove and attempted to land/sit on a rainbow because of a Skittles commercial.

    But same. I wasn't offended at all. Sure it made some exaggerated claims and was a bit hyperbolic, but that was orchestrated specifically to get a reaction. They knew what they were doing. The video is almost up to 20 million views! I hadn't even heard the name Gillette in years (I use an electric razor - I only grow a baby mustache that needs shaving every couple of weeks or so lol), but now it's been in my mind for days and I don't even watch live TV.

    @Otherside I think this whole Brexit thing has gone on far too long. Small case of asking the PM a simple question ' do you want in or out '. If you want out, you know the deal. Because what was offered will never change. Even if you got rid of May and got a new PM in place. The deal would still remain the same. It has to. To let other countries know that if they also leave the EU they will lose out. I think the UK government thought they could up and leave and keep everything they had as an EU member state. It was obvious an example was going to made of them. The EU saying ' you leave on our terms, not yours '. No deal Brexit is looking possible. Which will be good for nobody really. It would stand to effect some other countries. Like Ireland. At the moment May has the best and only deal she will be ever get and it was voted against. I have no idea why. As the government know there will nothing better offered. They might not be happy with it and showed this in how they voted against the deal the other day. But nobody else will get a better deal. Lord knows people are fed up with the whole Brexit thing. Take what is been offered and just go. As what they are been offered is far more than what they will get with a no deal Brexit.

    I cannot stand this stuff.

    Apparently people like it and think it's an excellent thing to dip pizza crusts in. Why would I want to do that? It's some disgusting concoction that deserves to be put in hell and I have several pots of the stuff just shoved into the box with this one order. Why must you insist on sending it? WHY DO PEOPLE LIKE IT?!!

    I have never eaten there (I haven't eaten at many restaurants here tbh - years of extreme SA will do that to ya). We have a restaurant called Waffle House that I really want to try one of these days.

    I think Papa John's uses carpet glue in their pizzas. I have a few local places, Fong's Pizza and Zoey's, that I get pizza from every so often, but I'm not gonna feed into Papa John's CEO's delusional belief that his business model of underpaying his employees is somehow ethical. He was also in the news for using racial slurs during a business conference call, and is on the record as being super critical of Colin Kaepernick's efforts to raise awareness about police brutality toward African Americans. Who knows, maybe he'll be in Trump's cabinet soon. Wouldn't surprise me. Also, great to know Trump spent a total of about two minutes at the MLK Jr. monument in DC today. I'm so tired of winning, as Trump promised his supporters during his campaign. Oh wait, we've been losing pretty much every day since he got in office.

    The word ' Yank '. Stick with me on this one. I have a friend I have known all my net life. Lives in the US. Now, she doesn't see how her using the word ' Paddy ' when talking about Irish people in no different from me using the word ' Yank ' when talking about Americans. It is OK for her to use ' Paddy ' but not OK for me to use ' Yank '. She goes crazy when I use the word. Says she is offended. As for the word ' Paddy '? We laugh at it. But just as she is offended by the word ' Yank ', you might get a few snowflakes offended by the word ' Paddy '. Or even the word ' Mick '. I know people like to use both words for Irish people. Again I am never offended. Is only a word. Most Irish people would not be offended. But her using one of the two words, she fails to see is exactly like me using the word ' Yank .

    For the record I assumed the Yankee army was one side of the civil war you had in the US? Somebody please tell me if I am wrong. Plus you do have a stadium that uses the same name and a sport's team. Why is she getting offended so easily? Other than she is a snowflake. Maybe an American can tell me if the word does offend people from the US and why? I might be missing something that she sees.
