Yes, as well as- hell, you need a control group. In a study of streakers,
the control group is not all the people who keep their clothes on....

Seems to me, (whoever that is) that we need a control where _there are no
memes_, where there is no culture-motivated behavior. So- where do we
look? I say dreams, maybe toilet-training (simple defecation being the
control), Brett (I think it was Brett) said garments. Anyway- among these
there is a better chance of gaining a control group.

However, as a cultural/social trend, the study of public nakedness is a
most entertaining pursuit.

Well, I think so....
