Jessica Rey presents the history of the evolution of the swimsuit including the origins of its design, how it has changed overtime and the post-feminist association of the bikini symbolizing female empowerment. She refers to neuro-scientific studies revealing how male brains react to images of scantily clad women versus images of women deemed modest and what the implications of the results are for women in society.
(Note: As the OP, I disagree with Rey’s approach to putting the onus on women to alter ourselves rather than to alter the male perception of women – brain wiring has plenty to do with socialization and if we worked against the culture that fuels men’s objectification of women, women’s clothing choices would matter far less in terms of how men perceive us and determine how to interact with us).

are as addicted to carpet as i am. i rub different textures of carpet all over my body. i smell the fresh new carpet smell and feel myself get excited. i work day and night to collect different types of carpet from wherever i am. i sleep with a carpet pillow i have made by hand. i wrap myself in a cocoon of carpet and feel myself merge into the fabric, becoming one…
Note the bottom. Birth year is 1977. In this font, I can’t think of any other digit that would partially look like this, is repeated and gives credible birth year. This, for me, settles the age debate.
Interestingly (probably just a prop issue?) the Fall date is absent. I mean, John would notice something like that…
So this means that Sherlock was 33 when he and John first met. Also, that would make Mycroft about 40 at this time.
He’s approximately three years younger than John.
He was 12 when Carl Powers was murdered and he “made a fuss” to the police.
He was about 28 when he first met Lestrade.
He is now 36 years old.
Excellent!! Though, assuming they met on Jan 29th, 2011, Sherlock would be 34. From ASiB, we know John was 37 that year.
So, the age difference is, as you said, 3 years. Which puts John’s birth year at 1974. But above news is from the time after the events at pool. So, it’s possible that John’s birth date could be in 1973 (roughly) July-Dec and he would still be 37 at the time of above news.
Mycroft’s birth year could be 1969-1970. As in, he could have been born anywhere between roughly September 1969 - April 1970 to be called 7 years older. (Stretching it more causes my mind to adjust 7 years to 7.5 years, and that is not a canonical number for me!)
He met Lestrade around the age of 28, meaning he wasn’t just out of University. Actually we don’t even know whether he completed any degree. What was he doing then? Rather, what could he be doing before meeting Lestrade? There is his addiction. Did he kick it after meeting Lestrade? Before? Because 28 years is a long time, most people are well set into their jobs (Dull), and Sherlock invented his after this? Oooh… will there be some inklings to this in series 3 given that there’s going to be some family time (speculated)?
FINALLY! I have always believed Sherlock’s age was similar to Benedict’s. Great sleuthing, cosmoglaut! I salute you.
WHY DOESN’T THIS HAVE LIKE A GIZZILION NOTES THIS IS PHENOMENAL
