    "Prime Minister David Cameron has secured support from other EU leaders to allow the UK to scrap the so-called "tampon tax", British officials say."

    The first time I signed a petition against this unfair tax was about 36 years ago. :eek:

    Never even knew this tax existed. Makes me glad to be a dude. No taxation without menstruation! (sorry).

    Apparently they are very useful for removing nail polish without getting acetone in your fingers.

    And they pay more too! But you can't blame the multinationals for that - it's female psychology.
