Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 14 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. Not everything that is old is bad. It can be interesting to see how 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 very well have changed in the 14 years since I wrote this post. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find pretty embarrassing today.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

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.
