The hypothesis on the table is: the gender stereotypes madly bandied about by the media these days; that girls like pretty things and boys like football, is a wholly accurate model and a useful guide in informing behaviour. Don't forget that anyone with an openID can vote, and you all have an openID
set up a poll:
Imagine you have a choice of three catch-free gifts
- One year's subscription to a Sky Sports package, currently worth about £500
- £500 in gift vouchers to spend at Lush and/or B Never
- £250 cash
I guess forners can substitute in their sports TV package provider of choice. [Error: Invalid poll ID 1351055]For transparency, I went with the Lush vouchers: I swear b their solid shampoo for the long hair I'd probably still have if I were a guy, and their facial products don't hurt like so much cosmetic crap I've tried. And as Mat Bowles
pointed out, I can probably sell £300 of those Lush vouchers for £270, giving me the money on top of £200 of vouchers.
I also worked out that £500 off a Sky Sports package would leave me with £12 a month extra to pay and a setup charge of £129. Ignoring the set up charge, the total saving was £437.40 a year, which might be worth it if I didn't think Virgin On Demand a better package. With the Sky+ box, however, it becomes just £308.40, and I think the Lush vouchers a better deal.
I think I may have broke the gender stereotype somewhere.
