Amid all the talk of plastic pollution here is a good news story
Anyone seen the new Gillette advert? https://youtu.be/koPmuEyP3a0
Saw it on a BBC article which was saying there had been quite a backlash. Now I do think that there is definitely hypocrisy in the perception and treatment of men v women in general, but canít see how this advert would offend...
Anyone got access to BCIS?
As with most of the U.K. I am fully onboard with gin nowadays.
Whatís everyoneís favourite gin and your favourite tonic?

I'm a lifelong Labour voter, but, having heard the crap coming out of the Tories this week, I am seriously considering voting 'Yes' in the referendum if that is going to be the future.
I'd be interested to hear other's thoughts.
I have absolutely no idea what is going on and, as much as it's brilliant to see Edinburgh in a blockbuster, I have no idea why they're there.
During the recent debates over rail price increases I was watching a piece on BBC News in which 3 people were interviewed. The 1st was a Tory MP who insisted it was all the nasty unions faults that fares were going up and running the various franchises for profit had no bearing at all on...
Anybody got any advice on the best ways to do this. I want more music for my android phone.
Unbelievable. Life in jail is the only punishment for these pricks that carry and use knives.
Heathrow Departure Flights Suspended After Drone Sightings
Does anyone think brexit could hamper the transfer window for Scottish club?
As far as I know, any player from an EU country can currently play here without a visa. But after March, will that still be the case? Will players want to risk coming here and then falling foul of the visa system,...
I know it has a poor tax record, if it pays any at all, and that it treats it's employees poorly, but my word the Prime service can be spectacular.
We had a very slow draining shower yesterday so I searched for a highly recommended drain unblocker.
HG Liquid Drain Unblocker ticked all the...
Nearly midnight now in Thailand. Can I just wish Hibs fans wherever you are a very Happy New Year. Let's all hope we have a great 2019
On many occasions I have castigated folk on Hibs.Net who resort to pointing out folks poor spelling, grammar or lack of proper punctuation. I find it usually happens when an argument gets heated or is being lost. I've said many times that it shouldn't be ignored that there are folk with many...
Couldnít find an old thread about places to go for a walk so thought Iíd put this up.
At this time of year many people are looking for a place to let them get out the house for an hour or two.
My suggestion is to visit the Innocent railway and walk through the big tunnel. You can start at...
What are people's thoughts on this? Is Mike Russell correct that "The vast majority of people would just not regard this as something that should be happening in their country."
Or am I totally wrong in thinking that this is...
28 year old woman killed while leaning out of a droplight window on a moving train. Such a shame this has happened. Thoughts with the family. I see this type of behaviour all too often though and have always thought something like this would happen.

Madness - who would do such a thing? I'm sure they'll find out who did it pretty soon.
A drone attack at one of the UK's busiest airports has left tens of thousands of passengers facing major disruption. Gatwick's runway has been shut since Wednesday night, when two devices were seen flying over...
Is there anything you can do to stop this? I dont mind ads in the free versions of some apps but the targeted ones are annoying and a bit spooky 🤢
Ive just been looking at hotels in Koh Larn in Thailand on booking.com and have been shown these very hotels in two other different apps. Im a bit...
I visited Iceland earlier this year and I'm yet to see an Icelandic note or coin. It was contactless everywhere.
Meanwhile, here in Yorkshire my local pub doesn't accept cards at all. It's a Sam Smith's establishment though and their CEO/owner is renowned for being a bit of a maverick.
16 years ago today The Clash frontman died of a heart atattack at the age of 50. A voice of a generation, Joe got the call far too early. Will drink a toast to you later mate. RIP.
Due to me prattling on about malt whisky, I've been asked to arrange a tasting for some guys at my golf club.
Has anyone done something like that before and which whiskies did you use?
I'm thinking 4, 5 max, malts would be sufficient to show some of the the different styles available because...
I know there are some from down that way so I'm asking for some advice.
We are not party animals and have booked a hotel near the Mersey which has a new year's eve event with dinner, band and fireworks, but I am looking for things to do on the 1st and 2nd of January. Tate Liverpool is open, I...
A known terrorist has shot 2 dead and injured a number of others. MEPs tweeting they are safe.
How long does everyone think weíve got as a species?
I was going to list my reasons for starting this thread, but I think itís probably better if I donít and leave it up for discussion as a blank piece.
Over to you.
Seems there is a big difference in what a progressive tax plan looks like between the parties.
Interesting debate to take place
Even taking this to court is a waste of time and money in my opinion, but surely a warning, or at most a fine, would have sufficed?
Or am I being a snowflake and she deserved everything she got?
Revealed: the hidden global network behind Tommy Robinson
I try to be diligent and check which stories and emails etc are real and trustworthy before forwarding them and I've done a fair amount of research to determine that this is a legitimate scheme.
It may not come to anything in the long run, but when the FT and Martin Lewis are suggesting that the...
This article states that people are claiming Die Hard is a Christmas film and it’s tearing the internet apart.
Who would you nominate?
Nominees must have contributed to the field of science
They must be real
They must not be alive
They must have shaped thought, innovation, leadership or values in the UK
This year, for the first time, The Ballon D'Or had two categories; Male and Female player of the year. The winner was a lady called Ada Hegerberg from Norway.
Her acceptance speech was intended to inspire girls/young women to stick at it in football and be the best they could.
Yes or No.
Don't bother with comments, just have your vote.
Edit: You need to be on the full site to vote.
I'm thinking of applying to do one before I get too old. I know Topographic Hibby has studied for a PhD; has anyone else, and is there any essential advice you would offer?
Three years is a big commitment, then there's finances to consider. Any advice on funding options? I'd like to do it, but...
I find that as time goes by I am getting more easily distracted.
Sometimes I have to have internet access to do certain tasks, and the internet is a huge box of distractions, and I find that I can lose days to being hugely unproductive and getting very little done.
You may notice that on...
Interesting (in a dismayed, sickening sort of a way) report from the UN:
We all remember the adverts, but didn’t think they were still trading
See they are in the news today, who uses these sort of services nowadays, possibly older people. £11.23 for a 90 second call, outrageous
