This month, GQ FRANCE is all about rugby, and how the dual nature of the sport, brute force and respect, is viewed as the ideal template for how to operate within a corporate environment. This interesting anecdote also came up:
South Africa, Rugby World Cup, 1995. France defeats England for the third time. After the game, the English team decide to drown their sorrows at a pub/restaurant called Ed’s Diner, unaware that the French team had also chosen this place to celebrate their victory. Things could have turned ugly but instead the two teams bonded through a series of drinking games and a riotous food fight.
If I had known that this sort of thing went on rather than just simply stumbling around in the muck in the Navan Road sports grounds, I might have stuck with it during my formative years in Belvedere………there’s NOTHING like a good food fight………
So GQ France have published an invaluable guide to using a gym or a spa this month! If you are wondering about what type of shower gel you should use; what towel you should bring, what’s the appropriate exfoliant to use in or out of the shower, look no further; they have it covered………..
Yet another map, but this time its for Womens’ Health, illustrating global sexual habits – such as how long for, different activities, who with, and what time of the day or night! Some surprises ensue……
Earlier this year, Prime Minister David Cameron commissioned a report from retail guru and TV presenter Mary Portas on the current state of the British High Street, and thus hopefully gain some insight as to why they are in decline. The report was produced by the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills, features illustrations by me, and can be viewed here.
