The Book

close

Warning: This post was published more than 13 years ago.

I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might have changed in the 13 years since I wrote this post.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Many thanks for your understanding.

I have found an accompaniment to “The Book”. It shall henceforth be known as “The Video”. It’s on archive.org.

Warning: Do not do what I did and drink whilst watching this. I nearly choked at one point (“Say, you know something?”, “No, what?”, “I had a wet dream last night.”, “Wet dream? What’s that?”). Yes kids, this is sex-ed 1950’s US style. And to think they’re having the “Abstinence Plus” debate about school sex-ed now – they were teaching a whole lot more than that back then!

If you enjoy it, then you might also like to try Are You Popular (perhaps made especially for people like…well, I wouldn’t be cruel enough to name names, but JRC knows who), and Better Use of Leisure Time, which is funny because of the way Americans say “Leisure”, amongst other things.

Have fun, and remember, don’t go parking in cars with the guys – it WON’T make you popular.
