    The Erik the Slutty Saga was good reading and I learned a lot from it when I studied it in elementary school as we all probably did. Then, there is this:
    We have no reason to believe our forebears were particularly wedded to straight sex, either

    So let’s look at how life was lived:The Britons of the late Pre-Roman Iron Age lived in round houses – Jes Butterworth’s ‘Citadel’ is a fiction.I’ve slept in a roundhouse – it’s an amazing and magical experience, but it’s not conducive to monogamy. When thirty or forty people are sleeping in the same space… it’s unlikely, not to say highly improbable, that they’ll all choose the same pairings night after night. Why would they?

    And we have no reason to believe they were particularly wedded to straight sex, either.Ancient Greek writers from Aristotle to Ammianus to Sicculus all queue up to tell us how much the young men of the ‘Celts’ prefer each other to their women. Aristotle says that the ‘belligerent’ nations were much influenced in warfare by their women, but unusual because the men openly preferred each other to their womenfolk.Not at all like the Greeks then.Much.

                            Not an FAU article, or even a TAMU article.

                            Maybe Stan got a dose of VX.

                            VX was a triumph among the biological warfare community. Odorless and tasteless, it’s three times as toxic as Sarin. In initial trials, this over-achieving compound was also found to be highly stable, enabling long shelf life and environmental persistence. VX works by blocking chemicals in the victim’s body from functioning. It prevents the enzyme acetylcholinesterase from allowing muscles to relax, resulting in the contraction of every muscle in the body. Exposure to a minute or diluted dose of VX will cause muscle twitching, drooling, excessive sweating, and involuntary defecation, among other unpleasantries. Exposure to a lethal dose — about ten milligrams — will cause convulsions, paralysis, and eventually asphyxiation due to sustained contraction of the diaphragm muscle. Unless the affected skin is cleaned and an antidote is administered immediately, a single drop of liquid VX will kill a person in around ten minutes.
                            In 1968, thousands of sheep died mysteriously in the Skull Valley, Utah.
