    That “sex ed” photo is a still from a Clara Bow movie. I believe “The Wild Party” from Paramount Pictures in 1929

      Thank you for the much needed clarification, the third grader that narrates this gives so little information.

    I love the two on the right in the second row, their faces say, “Yeah so what, so what’s the big deal?”

    Rather him than me!
    Looks like a stripped down 998cc Vincent Lighning. The production version was the fastest production bike for decades. I had a Rapide, then a Black Shadow and a Grey Flash. Wish I’d never sold them.

    Terrible cruel treating of the bear. Still going on with so-called dance-bears, which you can help stop.

    Terrible, cruel mistreating of the bear which has its teeths removed as small and a chain through the nose and its claws clipped…..Still going on in Pakistan and Bulgaria plus…but you can help stop it…

    …and Hemingway liked the cruelty towards animals called bullfighting.

      Get a freaking life. The bull fights provided entertainment and steaks for the village, and liver to use with their onions, etc. Get over it.

      That’s exactly what I was thinking. That bear probably has no teeth or claws so actually, no. No risk of danger at all.
