Now it can be told

The secret origin of the term "metrosexual," as filched from a mayonnaise jar on Funk and Wagnalls' porch:

"Jeebus, Myrtle, would you look at this. Brights. Every doofus who can bang two syllables together suddenly thinks he's a goddamn movement, fercrissake. I oughta think of something stupid like that just to watch people fall all over themselves to jump on the bandwagon. Now let's see...."

Bright = smart, so obviously you're a complete moron if you believe anything which they don't.

This is no more self-evident than a person that attaches themselves is to another person that isn't quite what they think they should be, because they believe they can change that person, mend their ways, and anything else you see on Springer.

Hey, are you Bright? Why no, I generally default to ambient light levels, as far as I know, and I like it that way.
