Science can’t explain everthing

Posted on Sunday 08/13/2017 06:06:34

I have Facebook to thank for many things. I sometimes wonder if it ever appreciates how grateful I am to it for presenting me with, for example, the following suggested link:



It seems to me that if scientists concentrated more on things that really matter then they would be able to find the explanation that eludes them. But I am a layman. What do I know?

Another was called something like ‘Top 50 Hottest Movie Scenes in the Entire History of All the Known Universes, Ever’. The accompanying image seemed tantalisingly familiar, but I could not place it. It showed a young woman in a red bikini raising her hands to her bikini top as if she were about to remove it. Normally I ignore such insulting attempts to make me click on a link to a site displaying tawdry images of women’s breasts, but for some reason I felt drawn to this one. Fast Times at Ridgemont High, it informed me, was the Number One, and the young woman in question was Phoebe Cates. I still couldn’t remember if I’d seen it, but mentioned the matter in passing to Nightbreed, and she commented casually – as if the matter were of no importance to the world of science – that there were animated GIFs of the said scene to be found on the internet.

What could I do? What would you have done? What would a scientist have done? I realised my duty: I researched the matter in depth, and I present my findings below.


NOTE: My findings may not be suitable for viewing while at work. Proceed at your own risk...

All I can say is that I am deeply grateful not only to Facebook, but to Nightbreed, for making my life happier and more enlightened than it had hitherto been. If only scientists could concentrate more on this field of research rather than, say, nuclear weapons, then I am sure the world would be a more peaceful place.

    I can't see the gifs, but I can tell you I'm pretty sure that's one of Steve's favorite scenes of all time.

  • lunamor Says:
    And totally OT, but I love coming here and scrolling the mouse over my name on the right so I can see it say "Queen of Whore Island." I just love you for that.

  • Simon Says:
    Ah! Thank you. I shall have to check the settings on my Google Photos account and see if I can rectify the matter...

  • Simon Says:
    Ugh. Thanks to the changes made when Picasa Web Albums became Google Photos I’m not sure if anyone else will be able to see the images. I can, even when logged out of my Google account, but maybe others cannot. If anyone can see the images (one in the main part of the post, the animated GIF below the split) then please let me know. Otherwise I will try to find another image hosting site – one that allows women’s nipples to be displayed, naturally.

    Thank you for your patience and cooperation.

  • Simon Says:
    Okay, I THINK the image links should be working now. Please let me know if they are still failing to appear. My apologies for the inconvenience.

  • lunamor Says:
    I can see them now. Goddamn she has a nice set. I have seen it before, but it's been awhile.

  • Simon Says:
    Thanks, Jess. Bloody Google Photos!

    Speaking of the 80s, I saw this a minute ago and immediately thought of Steve:

  • Simon Says:
    Apologies again for all the buggering about. I have now uploaded the images to PostImage, which is apparently just about the only free hosting site that can be guaranteed not to remove photos with ‘adult content’. I’ll see how that goes. Imgur should be okay, but apparently they reserve the right to remove images at their own discretion.

    One piece of advice I found regarding Google Photos that strikes a chord:

    “Google’s photo host has a ton of different features, though it’s largely used for backing up and hosting images natively, rather than for hotlinking on another site. Nothing says you can’t, and they don’t prevent that hotlinking, but it’s not the most intuitive process.”

    Damn right.

  • lunamor Says:
    Imgur allows damn near anything. You could probably sodomize a hamster and they wouldn't pull the image.

  • kittenheel Says:
    PHotobucket has apparently become quite nasty in not letting people hotlink their images from there unless they pay for a premium plan.

  • Fritz The Bootlegger Says:
    That actually is one of my favorite movie scenes of alll time. And the song that played during that scene was The Cars "Moving In Stereo." I can't hear that song without getting an erection.

  • Simon Says:
    Haha! I’m glad you appreciated it, Steve. You are a real aficionado – if I may say that without seeming vulgar.

  • Nightbreed Says:
    My work here is done. ;)

  • H3OsMama Says:
    I'm curious...what is so mysterious about the picture above the article?

  • H3OsMama Says:
    Is it that she obviously had a boob job before boob jobs were popular?

  • Simon Says:
    H30, I did wonder about that image. It obviously doesn’t match the link, which is exactly what it says it is – things like ghost photographs – but either it’s there as the result of a mistaken link, or it’s simply click-bait. For some reason there’s a belief that if you put an image of an attractive woman with large breasts on a link, people are more likely to click on it. I have no idea why.

    I couldn’t resist trying to find the original, and it turned up on several click-bait links, mainly with titles like 17 Incredible Women You Won’t Believe Exist. – yet, needless to say, she doesn’t appear on any of the sites in question.

    Men are so easily manipulated. It’s pathetic.

  • H3OsMama Says:
    She really has a fantastic figure, though.

  • Simon Says:
    She does! And she evidently works well as click-bait…

  • Dirty Rock Says:
    she may just be a unicorn and be naturally like that.

  • Simon Says:
    It’s entirely possible she is. I’ve just seen the picture again, on another FB suggested ad, and once again she doesn’t appear in the linked article. I bet she has no idea her photo is being used in this way.

    It’s a terrible world we live in. Pictures of women’s breasts being thrust upon us everywhere we turn.

  • lunamor Says:
    Unlike Rosie O'Donnell's proclamation in Beautiful Girls that "God doesn't fuck around," once in awhile Mother Nature throws y'all a bone(r) and gives a woman big tits and a tiny waist. Not often, but it happens.

  • Simon Says:
    That is why I worship the gods of nature rather than Jehovah. OOPS!
