You want to read this article, don't you? Cause it sounds pretty interesting, right? And those dancers...so enticing...

Well, guess what - there will be no striptease, and there will be no sex. You've been callously manipulated in an effort to draw you in. And now, you've experienced the same thing as attendees did at Mindshare last Thursday.

Held at Hangar1018 downtown, Mindshare is a monthly, themed event whose goal is promote idea-sharing among local thinkers and academics. In honor of Valentine's Day, February's theme was "Enlightened Debauchery."

But sadly, neither enlightenment nor debauchery made an appearance at all. The event was about as sexual in nature as "He's Just Not That Into You," and about as enlightened as "Everybody Loves Raymond." Mindshare, charade you are.
