Any Canadians on the forum?

What do you reckon here... would you?

'SNOW PROTECTORS - a Canadian invention from 1939, this plastic contraption offered protection for the face in snowstorms'...

Why was this never a commercial success?

As with chefs, such as James Martin and Rick Stein, I believe in butter as an essential ingredient - and spare me the, 'Oh, it's not good for your health...'.

I would be first in the queue...

Awesome gadget...

Sounds great until you remember the state that Pritt sticks tend to get into with all the dirt and flufy crap around the end. :O

Good call there - had forgotten about that!

Still though, nothing a sharp knife couldn't take care of and remove!

We don't seem to have discussed Kevin Spacey's in-character video defence--and then he was charged the indecent assault and battery.


What on earth was the logic?

Must say, good or bad, the man can really act.

He really is an outstanding actor. I think he made that because he hopes that he'll be back on the screen. That may mean he's fairly confident of winning the case.
He's been accused and charged. Neither makes him guilty.

Well that was weird.

Found a good comment at YT:
This is like the video version of OJ’s “If I Did It” book...except creepier.

That was a drag, losing one of my favorite actors. I sometimes wondered why he was so good at playing a flaming asshole.

I think it’s an epic failure of judgement. It looks like he’s playing his ego against public opinion but it just looks crass.

I read there's apparently another video, taken by the victim, of Spacey committing the crime. Funny how Kev didn't release that one himself.

Conviction's the only time when someone's been found guilty but yeah, if he's trying to stick up for himself and he knows he's innocent, fair play to the man but doing it in this way is unusual.

Have you got a link to that video please?
