Controversial Teen Dance Crazes That Pissed Off Parents

The Waltz (1800s)
In 1816,The Times of London alerted parents about an “indecent foreign dance” called the waltz, which featured “the voluptuous intertwining of the limbs” and “close compressure of the bodies.” This “obscene display” sparked a panic that caused the Times to “warn every parent against exposing his daughter to so fatal a contagion” that previously remained the territory of “prostitutes and adulteresses.” Yes, this was written about the waltz.

FULL LIST on Flavorwire

FACT: The waltz was also considered dangerous and sexy (compared to the quadrilles and country dances in vogue at the time, which are fun but about as sexy as the electric slide) because it let you have all this privacy to talk. You weren’t in a line or a group with anyone else, so dudebro could tickle his mustache all in your ear and shit.

just literally everything is cranes. one day enjolras explodes because he realizes that every single one of their flyers has been folded up. and there were like 250 flyers. and the…

Enjolras goes on youtube and yahoo answers and wikipedia trying to figure out how to fold a crane but he just comes out with mangled blobs

the next meeting jehan has braided a string of cranes into his hair instead of flowers and courf has replaced his bow tie with a tie crane

the mutual benefits of combeferre being in cahoots with R when he starts dating enjolras and telling him all the little silly things that enjolras forgets to do like he always forgets his keys/his umbrella/to sleep

grantaire looks like a very attentive and thoughtful boyfriend

combeferre has a whole list of enjolras-based maintenance that he can just stop worrying about
