Speaking of regression, Sydney Leathers suggests that her sexting with Anthony Weiner was in the nature of a science experiment:

For me, Anthony Weiner was a weird science experiment. I wanted to see how far it could go. How far could I push it? How long could it go on? Part of me wonders if his refusal to quit is his OWN science experiment.

Science! What can’t it do?!
