"She has also been investigating the movement of women’s breast during physical activity for more than 15 years."

The dream job of adolescent males of all ages and sexes.

David

Sadly for the world’s adolescent boys, it doesn’t yet come with machine gun attachments.

And for the crisis-conscious, there’s also the emergency bra that doubles as a pair of protective face masks.

R. Sherman

Test subject #1.

I think we're going to need a bigger beer.

David

I think we’re going to need a bigger beer.

I’m not familiar with the kind of thing I’m seeing.

Jonathan

".. that automatically tightens in response to breast movement .."

Kind of like a personal Boa Constrictor then. What could possibly go wrong?

David

What could possibly go wrong?

If science fiction has taught me anything, it’s that the bra will become self-aware and go on an unstoppable rampage. “Crush. Kill. Destroy.”

I wonder if 15 years ago Professor Julie Steele had an experience something like this.

David

Admit it, ladies. You’ve always wanted a bra that in moments of exertion sounds like this.

Sam

Admit it, ladies. You’ve always wanted a bra that in moments of exertion sounds like this.

If that's not the makings of a great TV series I don't know what is.

David

For some reason I was reminded of this bra advert from 1998, in which said products are tested in a wind tunnel.

Theophrastus

David, I am beginning to think that you might have been weaned a little early...

David

Heh. It’s the only explanation.

Sam Duncan

“A ‘bionic bra’ that automatically tightens in response to breast movement”

Well, if my trousers can do it...

Connor

1998 was a good year for bra adverts.

Mr. Saturn

Now all they need are cybernetic panties and things might get weird.

Mojo

Damn, they offer grants for that? I've been missing out on major dough, apparently.

JuliaM

"Admit it, ladies. You’ve always wanted a bra that in moments of exertion sounds like this."

I'd settle for one that had catches that didn't bend into uselessness after a month or two...

And I think Sam Duncan won this thread!

David

As this is a subject of which I’m terribly ignorant, I’m tempted to ask what it is you’re doing to your poor bras before they bite the dust. Maybe diagrams would help me get a sense of what’s going on in them.

Hello...?

Hal

A few years back I was chatting with a friend of mine, where among the items in her background and history was having been born male.

I reported another friend's comment that the all time problem with telling a transsexual from a transvestite is all that bother of remembering which one grows down from the cave ceiling and which grows up from the floor.

The first friend then announced that actually the difference is extremely easy to sort out. At the end of the workday, one runs home to put a bra on, and the other runs home to take one off.

"Maybe diagrams would help me get a sense of what’s going on in them."

:D

this bra advert from 1998, in which said products are tested in a wind tunnel.

The bra testing machine killed me. :-D

David

The bra testing machine killed me.

As bra adverts go, it’s quite special.

dicentra

what it is you’re doing to your poor bras before they bite the dust

The metal hooks catch in the holes of washing machines and dryers. Yes, I know there are special bags and containers and holders that are supposed to avoid this fate, but please. That's extra work. I should be lavishly praised for keeping my undies washed.

The hooks also catch onto each other in drawers or catch onto sweaters or anything else that you desperately don't want to be snagged.

Were it not for the terrible effects of gravity or the horrific alternatives (whale-bone corsets), we'd all burn the blasted things forthwith.

Jeff Wood

Sweet Dicentra, please accept lavish praise for your clean undies.

I was just about to recommend that little gem.

Note to self: Do not waste time making lunch.
