  1. Subliminal messaging seems pointless. I remember the slight hints in a few commercial but I never went out to go and buy the product.

    Also, vote Stephen Fry for pope. Don't know why, just seems like a good idea.

  2. Could one of you Britons give me more info on what they were talking about in reference to The Young Ones? I've seen every episode of that show and even have the box set of the series(on VHS mind you) but they really sorta glossed over it in this clip. Thanks.

  3. Ozzy Osbourne recorded a special message for the idiots who believed this subliminal message nonsense at the beginning of the song "Bloodbath in Paradise", which when played backwards says "Your mother sells whelks in Hull".

  4. Subliminal advertising is something that is so noticeable that it sticks with you, every advert uses subliminal messaging in more obvious ways then you think

  5. It wasnt actually called suicide solution. The court case refers to "better by you better than me", which, to make the entire thing more ridiculous, is a cover. Suicide solution is an Ozzy song not Priest 😉

  6. If the song was called Suicide Solution, then there would be nothing subliminal about any message that could possibly be in it.
    As Bill Hicks said, if you are going around playing records backwards then… you ARE satan. You need not look any further and you don't need to destroy my stereo in the process.

  7. Judas Priest should be compulsory at Republican/NRA/UKIP meetings.

    I don’t care if the back masking works or not. The irony of those fuckers making a gay man more money is glorious.

  8. If subliminal advertising worked, I'd have bought more things with my new Capital One credit card. With Capital One, you get cash back with every purchase! Capital One. What's in your wallet?

    Hm? What? I kinda zoned out there for a second, what were we talking about?

  9. It's a little know fact that if you play the Windows Millennium installation CD backwards it plays the necronomicon, even worse is that it installs Millennium if you play it forwards
