    Rugby going the NFL Class action way

    The world's hardest-drinking countries

    I'm pretty sure there's a social tolerance that's more important regarding Europe and alcohol, where addiction can often be underestimate, especially here, where due to strong wine producer lobbying is quite strong. Compared to the US (my perception via forum), it seems there's an acceptance of...

    Rugby going the NFL Class action way

    Since liability is my main professionnal speciality, I thought it would be an intersting point of view to share from oversea/different sport. First class action against the World Rugby association, due to breach of duty of care, during concussion, alleging source of early demencia...

    Most tendetious food ad ever ?

    Well I'm actually surprised by the amount of skin you see in the burger ads. I know that in the USA nudity on screen is quite the taboo (while it's not here as you point it), seeing such lascivious posture in an american ad kinda surprise me to be honest.

    Why Professional Basketball Hoops Still 10ft. High..

    Basketball player are not taller at all, nor bigger. Tall player are faster (even debatable, as Shaq Robinson and Hakeem were fast, Malone too). Shawn Bradley, Hagui, Bol, played almost 30 years ago now. You're australian. Rugby league 60's equivalent would be 1987, player are not that much...

    Why Professional Basketball Hoops Still 10ft. High..

    Regarding player size, it's not about their size, but what 7 footer are able to do nowadays. It's a visual bias regarding the hoop, linked to the fastbreak/high pace style played in the League since 2015. Which was not the case when you had fency offense team like kidd's nets, Duncan Spurs...

    Why Professional Basketball Hoops Still 10ft. High..

    FIBA is not really an organisation in the meaning you'll understand. Usa sport organisation is a world a part. There's a huge difference in how usa conceive sport compared to the rest of the World, which you can see in playstyle. Best passing center (Divac, Sabonis Senior, Jokic) are often...

    Actually the mongolian character do sing in a mongolian-turkish close accent which turkish speaker (wider acceptation of Turk) will partially understand. They were at least quite vigilant regarding this part.

    Tarantino: Inglorious Basterds languages

    Because he has idiomatic expression, yet coupled with typical english speaker mistake in French. And while not a specialist in swiss accent, I do assume that you're Romand, despite typical cliché I find it really hard to separate Swiss accent (unless it's a German Swiss speaker) than the one in...
