Finally, science supports and validates what we all already knew


And by “we”, I mean guys everywhere with a longingness to look at women in their full glory and not protected in a shroud of bra-ness.

Check this not-yet-peer-reviewed piece of awesomeness says:

Cross my heart, we’re not making this up, even though it flies in the face of conventional wisdom, anatomical reality and the billions of dollars raked in last year by Victoria’s Secret: Wearing a bra might actually make your breasts sag.

At least that’s the conclusion drawn by Jean-Denis Rouillon, a professor at the University of Besançon in France. For the past 15 years, Rouillon has been diligently taking a slide rule and caliper to the breasts of 320 women, ages 18 to 35, to measure any changes, particularly the relationship of the nipple to the shoulder. (To the surprise of no straight man with a pulse, he has said that these results are preliminary and that further research is needed.)

The sports science expert told France Info radio that “bras are a false necessity,” and that “medically, physiologically, anatomically — breasts gain no benefit from being denied gravity. On the contrary, they get saggier with a bra.”

bitching and moaning never felt so good


I used to run amok on this blog with lots of ranting and berating activity. I’ve slowed down to a standstill with it, and it’s caused the traffic to suffer.

Apparently being energetic about one’s faith means that you can say whatever you want without negative response:

Grammar issues aside, I’m not sure how talking like this is considered a badge of honor. It’s more like, “Come on my guilt field trip so that I might make myself feel better. By the way, you’re an ugly sinner and I’m better than you, because I’ve been cleansed.”

I’ll have to post more later. I have a job to run to and I need to clean my sensitive camera sensors before I leave.
