    Oops that post above was for the The Silver Survey Results section.

    My bad.

    >i always thought it was because if you wear white jeans and then you have your period the blood gets all over them and it’s a fucking mess to get it off because white clothes stain easier?

    But Kryten specifically asks her, shouldn’t she be playing tennis in tight white jeans, which would be a counterproductive thing to do if you were just going to get blood all over them. Who knows. I’m glad I’m not the only one who hasn’t got a clue.

    Maybe Kryters is really keen on cleaning peroid stains off of KK’s jeans. Uh.

    I do think another ad would be the correct explanation.

    Did none of you watch TV in the 90s?

    Kryten has been led to believe that sanitary towel adverts are fact, so asks her why she isn’t doing the things they do in adverts, namely pour blue liquid on things and do various strenuous activities in light/ form fitting clothing.

    Oh, right I get it now. It’s the whole “wear our pads and you can do anything you want without worrying about bleeding on everyone, including play tennis in tight white jeans.”

    Mystery SOLVED.

    > Yeah iconic sanitary towel adverts. The blue stuff has only just stopped being used, and it was a big deal when they switched to a red liquid because that’s the state of society.

    Thing is, there is a reason why the change is important; I have a friend who honestly was shocked and confused when her first period was nothing like she had been led to believe by things like the adverts. Granted she came from a super religious and frankly abusive household, but hiding women from the truth of their bodies to appease squeamish men is something to be championed against.

    Not that just having a red liquid is going to make all that much more sense of it, but still.

    Yeah I’m saying it’s a good thing, should be as realistic and as informative as possible. The people complaining about it are cretins and have no place in modern society to be honest.

    where did Lister even get period adverts to show Kryten?

    #225980

    I was just happy when the adverts started using the word period. For a long time they never said what they were for, and I was confused as a child.

    They still use some blue liquid to advertise the absorbent qualities of nappies and it just looks really weird. Maybe it’s best not to use actual piss, though.

    I mean it does absorb a LOT of blue liquid.

    The Outdated Red Dwarf Reference List has your outdated pop culture references covered. Though not in this case, since it was last updated before series VIII 20 ‘KIN YEARS AGO.

    They drink blue stuff in Star Wars.

    It’s fun being a young person watching Red Dwarf because you don’t know if the references are out of date 80s stuff or worldbuilding. Like Rastabilly Skank is worldbuilding, but I still don’t know if James Last is a real person or not

    Pretty sure Happy Heart is in a big advert at the moment, that’s a James Last song.

    I’d say he’s quite famous. It’s shit your Nan likes. Though my Nan is in her 80’s, maybe you have a cool young Nan that didn’t get bombed by the Nazis.

    I’m not grandmother age just so it’s clear. I’m in the autumn of my twenties.

    Google just taught me that Glenn Miller was rumoured to have been abducted by aliens when his plane went missing in the 40s. Another reference that just made me go “dude what” until now

    Remember when we had to go to all the bother of resurrecting people as holograms rather than just setting fire to their corpses and then forgetting about them?

    I invite you to try and find anything from the late ’40s onward that hasn’t been blamed on aliens.

    >Red Dwarf VIII being shit

    during the writing stage of VIII, doug naylor’s mind was being controlled by a friendly but ill-informed alien, who royally fucked up all of the scripts by making him add in dinosaurs and other bollocks that wasn’t really very good.that alien’s name? paul alexander.

    If the “perfect shot” from the Frankenstein scene in The End had been accidentally released, Craig Charles’s testicle would be given its own banner on fansite Ganymede & Titan. #DwarfFacts
