Sexiness Barrier Broken, Sexily

"Thinking ceases to be unifying or making a semblance familiar in the guise of a major principle," suggested the existentialist Albert Camus. "Thinking is learning all over again to see, to be attentive, to focus consciousness; it is turning every idea and every image, in the manner of Proust, into a privileged moment. What justifies thought is its extreme consciousness…. These paths lead to all sciences or to none. This amounts to saying that in this case the means are more important than the end. All that is involved is 'an attitude for understanding' and not a consolation. Let me repeat: in the beginning, at very least. How can one fail to feel the basic relationship of these minds! How can one fail to see that they take their stand around a privileged and bitter moment in which hope has no further place? I want everything to be explained to me or nothing. And the reason is impotent when it hears this cry from the heart. The mind aroused by this insistence seeks and finds nothing but contradictions and nonsense. What I fail to understand is nonsense. The world is peopled with such irrationals. The world itself, whose single meaning I do not understand, is but a vast irrational." On the other hand, Scarlett Johansson "has broken down the final barrier in sexy," so who's to say?

That's not what Don Jon was about at all.

I remember when Fairuza Balk was horribly maimed trying to get over that barrier.
