  1. I'm pretty sure the people who create advertisements are robots, because I'd rather not think about the type of person you'd have to be to decide that any of these were good ideas.

    Don't go thinking sexist advertising only affects women: At 1:37, you'll find out how it's changed the way men see themselves, and at 2:49, there's an eye-opening experiment that you don't want to miss.

  2. If you're on the wrong side of the class divide, recent advances in retail tech will make for depressing reading. For example, some years ago Britain's class system was automated. Now, as you shop, machines can discriminate against you far more efficiently.

    When you phone a big retailer, a machine decides what level of service you get, depending on your status. The software that makes this social judgement switches all incoming phone calls. The system identifies your phone number and cross-references that with its customer database. It then discovers, having looked up your address, what class of person you are and will route your call according to the class of service it thinks you merit.
