This is absolutely true, and in fact the existence of subliminals
embedded in the KJV (King James Version) is the main reason for its
continued success. No fewer than 3,121 embeddings of the word "sex"
appear scattered throughout its purportedly holy pages (that have been
found so far!). Recently, researchers at the Santa Fe Institute looking
for fractal patterns in the KJV found Mandelbrot-like embeddings of
"death", "sex", and "know" (biblical for coital relations) in 22% of the
pages. Twenty-two percent is, of course, the optimal reward frequency
for maximum effect of intermittent operant conditioning, being the
frequency with which the average (prehistoric) female achieved orgasm
during normal coitus. In addition, Prof. Marvin Minsky of the MIT
Artificial Intelligence Laboratory has sent me a pre-publication draft
of a groundbreaking paper on the subject which postulates the existence
of "agents" used to weave subliminals through the Bible, Shakespeare's
works, and the academic transcripts of all Harvard students from the
university's founding in 1636 until the transcript system was
computerized in 1978.

Wade, what exactly do you DO at Harvard, anyway?
