My childhood is for sale! Oh teh noes!

In other news, after much begging, I consented to watch my students' swim meet yesterday (It was their final home meet). What I found interesting, other than having no idea who was winning, was that when the girls finished their races for the day, some of them started putting on shorts over their swim suits. You know, those skimpy shorts that teenage girls think are perfectly apropriate? panties with cuffs? I saw one walk in front of me and thought "Man, that is OBSCENE!" and then went - wait, the swim suits show more, why am I thinking this is wrong? I think it has something to do with the fact that swimsuits hide absolutely nothing, whereas these shorts make an effort at hiding an infinitessimal but nonzero amount.
