136: Science Fair
Title text: This poster actually inspired a two-hour powerpoint presentation that Al Gore gave around the country.

A science fair involves schoolchildren making elaborate projects based on a subject of their choice. The purpose is to give them hand-on experience with scientific techniques. Even so, project based on cunnilingus, that is, a technique involved in the... 'friendship of the thighs' (a non-standard, non-reproductive technique, at that), especially one in which an element of the female anatomy is displayed, would not be acceptable in a science fair, a setting that is not only public but also involving children.
The title text is probably a reference to An Inconvenient Truth, a 94-minute documentary film where former US VP Al Gore tries to teach the general public about the dangers of global warming. It has been included in science curricula in schools around the world, to the ire of easily bored students everywhere.
- Although it caught me by surprise at the time, looking back I understand why my senior science fair project went over as badly as it did.
