It used to be, if you didn't want to hear propaganda you could stuff your ears with candle wax or cranberries. Now you will have to shoot yourself in the head.

No worries, I'm sure if this actually became widespread someone(Funkyterrance?) would invent some sort of pad you could strap to your head to block the transmission.

A giveaway of free toothbrushes in London caused mayhem at the Waterloo underground station.

Evening Standard wrote:A promotional stall handing out free electric toothbrushes to commuters at Waterloo station was forced to shut down amid safety fears today after hundreds of people overwhelmed staff and caused “mayhem” on the concourse.

Rail bosses ordered the closure of Colgate’s “brushswap” event amid safety fears.

Toothbrushes are considered a rare and exotic implement in British culture and are highly sought after.

Not all that surprising though... They must tear through the toothbrushes with all the sweets they eat over there.
