yeah, cause Beverly was going to be all about the riding crop and the ball gag if only a book had shown her the light.

some people are just going to be freaks

//the teddy bear people I mean, the sex freaks are awesome in my book!

I can't believe how long that article was.

Don't you remember when Sexy Tacos was imprisoned for insulting the state religion?  Some people just have novel ways of showing their support.

/Free Tacos!

My quick scan of the headline rendered it in my tiny brain as "all some housewives could think to do with their time was dress up in sexy teddys".
I was fine with that version.

Just look at her! You can tell she has never HEARD of Jacob D. Bekensteinor his theory of gravity that states: "

According to newtonian theory, gravitational effects propagate from place to place instantaneously. With the advent of Einstein's special theory of relativity in 1905, a theory uniting the concepts of space and time into that of four dimensional flat space-time (named Minkowski space-time after the mathematician Hermann Minkowski), a problem became discernible with newtonian theory. According to special relativity, which is the current guideline to the form of all physical theory, the speed of light,  c = 3 x 1010 cm s-1, is the top speed allowed to physical particles or forces: There can be no instantaneous propagation. After a decade of search for new concepts to make gravitational theory compatible with the spirit of special relativity, Einstein came up with the theory of general relativity (1915), the prototype of all modern gravitational theories. Its crucial ingredient, involving a colossal intellectual jump, is the concept of gravitation, not as a force, but as a manifestation of the curvature of space-time, an idea first mentioned in rudimentary form by the mathematician Ceorg Bernhard Riemann in 1854. In Einstein's hands gravitation theory was thus transformed from a theory of forces into the first dynamical theory of geometry, the geometry of four dimensional curved space-time.

Why talk of curvature? One of Einstein's first predictions was the gravitational redshift: As any wave, such as light, propagates away from a gravitating mass, all frequencies in it are reduced by an amount proportional to the change in gravitational potential experienced by the wave. This redshift has been measured in the laboratory, in solar observations, and by means of high precision clocks flown in airplanes. However, imagine for a moment that general relativity had not yet been invented, but the redshift has already been measured. According to a simple argument owing to Alfred Schild, wave propagation under stationary circumstances can display a redshift only if the usual geometric relations implicit in Minkowski space-time are violated: The space-time must be curved. The observations of the redshift thus show that space-time must be curved in the vicinity of masses, regardless of the precise form of the gravitational theory...."

Blah blah blah.....

No, I meant people who didn't play Text MUDs or D&D by email or FTP Monty Python scripts or post ascii art of Pinky & the Brain on Usenet....

I can imagine, though I'd be more concerned about the glorification of an abusive relationship as a romantic ideal, the lack of SSC/RACK going on (the spreader bar scene should've ended with Ana needing a double hip replacement) and the "subtle" insinuations that Ana has an eating disorder. Not to mention the whole Love Martyr trope and the insinuation that being into BDSM only happens because of psychological damage/rape...

"Welcome to the magical world of Beaver Valley where fantasy becomes beautiful reality."

I dunno, maybe not so far from 50 Shades?
