  1. I especially like the *MMF!*. That’s some forceful lovemaking they’re getting started on.

      This is actually something of an issue in archaeology at the moment. We always assumed that men would be buried with weapons and women with jewelery, so that’s how we described the graves we found. Those descriptions then became part of the literature, which provided further confirmation of the original assumption. DNA testing is now making it possible to reexamine old evidence and discover that people of the past did not always conform to the prejudices of the present.
