Breasts that hang loose, and are of an extraordinary largeness,
lose their charms, and have their Beauty buried in the grave of
uncomeliness, whilst those that are small, plump and round, like two
ivory globes, or little worlds of beauty, whereon Love has founded his

him languish and melt before the soft Temptation.

molecular structures that look like multicolored, curled-up Tinkertoy

molecule, his or her score goes up. If the structure requires more
energy to maintain, or if it doesn't reflect real-life chemistry, then
the score is lower.
