    Summary

    (Short Chapters)

    August 14–20, 1971

    Professor Philip Zimbardo organized twenty-four male students to take on randomly assigned roles of prisoners and guards in a mock prison situated in the basement of the Stanford psychology building. And within days, the guards enforced authoritarian measures and ultimately subjected some of the prisoners to psychological torture. Many of the prisoners passively accepted psychological abuse and, at the request of the guards, readily harassed other prisoners who attempted to prevent it. The experiment even affected Zimbardo himself, who, in his role as the superintendent, permitted the abuse to continue.

    Originally set to last for 2 weeks, it was terminated after only six days due to the actions of the participants spiraling out of control. But what if it hadn't been stopped? What if the abuse was allowed to continue until the end of the experiment?

    This is the story of fallout for one man and the psychologist who is assigned is case...

    Summary

    I wonder now, I do. Was it easier then, before constant sex on television and that internet box; before sex was everywhere, being sold, repackaged, to teenagers as dance moves, to girls as clothes; before it seemed the whole world seemed to be pulsating with angry, joyless, airbrushed sex- puppets in the very air we breathe; was it easier then to overcome a woman so intensely, to be so incredibly exciting, simply because we were all so damn ignorant?

    Truly, I am not sure. I think, unless you were very lucky, there must have been many more unsatisfied women then, because we did not- could not- know what to ask for, nor how. We were imprinted with shame.

    But I also think there is no era in which he would not have been something very special: a man who liked women, who wanted to please them and had taken the time to work out precisely how to do so. He was a scientist to his very bones.

    Summary

    'Nothing, is it?' said Laurie, whom something had rendered perverse. In this mood he was apt to become Irish. His brogue, however, was of literary origin, consisting of stock phrases carefully acquired.

    Summary

    "It is not necessary of course in any seduction for one party to be fully in control of themselves and the situation. But it can be very useful: particularly if the other party is young, nervous, inexperienced and, frankly, married to somebody else, all of which I undeniably was."

    Summary

    Das fing mehr oder weniger als Gag an. Es ist das was der Titel sagt: Fandom QVC.
    Ich denk das Andere das weitaus besser hinkriegen würde, und vielleicht mit mehr Meta Zeugs... und das eine Englische Übersetzung wirklich helfen würde... aber... ich find die Idee irgendwie lustig.

    Ich hab mich über QVC aufgeregt. Und das einer Freundin per SMS geschickt. Und ein paar SMS später meinte sie, sie eröffnet ein Fandom QVC. Und nach einem Tag mit VIEL zu viel Zeit und Langeweile kommt dann so etwas dabei heraus.
