Burngate wrote:Heinlein, Beyond this Horizon (1942) The Bunghole Theory
(I can't find the actual quote at the moment, haven't read it for a few years, so I may have the details wrong. This is someone else's version of the quote I found on Google)
"I have long suspected that the male of our species, in most cases, should be raised in a barrel and fed through the bung-hole. Then, at age eighteen, a solemn decision can be made: whether to take him out of the barrel, or to drive in the bung."
Here's a quote from a pdf file that I have:
"I've always favored the bunghole theory myself."
"You take the child at an early age and place it in a barrel. You feed it through the bunghole. At the age
of seventeen, you drive in the bung."
The most important leg of a three legged stool is the one that's missing.
It's called thinking. Why don't you try it sometime?
