Indeed so. Which makes me wonder why you think Lara Croft's breasts qualify. Insofar as they are a mental construct at all they are an example of one which does not evolve. There is a canonical version of the breasts in question as originally drawn by Toby Gard. This canonical version is changed slightly by Eidos from time to time but not by the millions who view Lara-related material on their consoles and the internet. Furthermore individuals' mental versions of Lara Croft almost never transmit to other individuals. Instead, most people encounter Ms Croft in the form of material published by Eidos or via the gaming press.Spanner said:A "meme" is an idea, thought or feeling that mutates and evolves as it passes between individuals and groups.

You've got me there It was kind of an excuse to bang on about norks, and see if The Escapist would actually publish it! Rumbled! :-DDom Camus post=6.68189.620985 said:Congrats on getting the Escapist to feature an article about boobs, though!
That's why I don't play GTA. It's like that city rug little boys have on the floor of their rooms that they roll their cars and action figures across. Boring crap if you as me.Echolocating post=6.68189.624537 said:I've never played a Tomb Raider game and don't plan on it. The idea of an entire game series that revolves around a Barbie Doll doesn't interest me.
