there is this book , two authors, not related,

before the actuall book comes the usual...so there is the dedications "I dedicate this book to my husband" and the other author dedicates the book to blah blah blah...

and the acknowledgements. Both authors thank their parents for support as thier first acknowledgments, then family and friends.

You say, so what, sounds like the ackwonledgments to 90% of books out there,

except this book is on sex.

who thanks thier parents for support in the acknowledgments of a book on sex.

WTF seriously. do thier parents read this and think, wow, my daughter/son is good.

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

Ash: Please put down the bottle...go to bed, and come back in the morning and type that in a way normal English-speaking people can easily comprehend.

Thanks and HAND,

Perhaps thanking their parents for having sex in the first place.
