  1. French rape/sexual assault laws

    Hark back to the scenes in Trainspotting when Renton has sex with Diane only to find out in the morning that she's only 14. He's mortified. She's blasé, but under our laws, he'd likely be jailed. It's a scene which provokes much debate, external or otherwise. If you're in a venue with a...

  2. Elon Musk

    I’ve just finished reading the Ashlee Vance book about Elon Musk. I’ve read a lot of biographies over the years and found this one utterly fascinating. When a mans goals are to ‘change cars, save the environment & make humans interplanetary’ you know you’re dealing with someone a bit different &...

    I debated the merits of even starting this thread. There's no point in another .net debate about gun control. It's well tread ground. Thoughts and prayers are absolutely pointless.
