^ because Meyer's religion used to believe that if your skin was any pigment other than the acceptable shades of white, then you were thought to be more sinful than everyone else, thus eviler. They have since officially retracted that belief, but I often wonder if behind the scenes they don't still enforce that in some churches. The Jacksons were mormons, I in fact think that might be one reason Michael Jackson tried so hard to be white. Though that didn't stop him from being a *****, so I dunno.
Immorality will make you beautiful and absolutely perfect. You will be the epitome of beauty and elegance, because being moral (or werewolf/shape shifter) is not enough to gain attention from your peers.
Should a guy you've talked to a couple of times who seemed to really dislike you reveal that he's been sneaking into your bedroom at night, it's time to call the cops not swoon. Likewise, if your male friend begins to avoid you, calling him dozens of times a day isn't going to help it's just going to convince him you're crazy.
If you are being eaten from the inside out by a being whose entire definition equals to "Parasite", it might not be a bad idea to rethink the whole 'baby' thing.
Also, condoms. Always. Unless you got your tube tied or some s**t, condoms are always a good idea.
Meyerpires would not in fact survive a bomb explosion, especially if it has any nuclear capabilities.
I'm pretty sure this is brought up in Breaking dawn, actually. If I remember right, Carlisle pretty much effectively admits vampires can be easily killed with modern, high-tech weaponry. Also pretty handily explains why the Volturi have clearly become pretty antagonistic towards humans while still doing all they can to prevent their existence from being leaked. If word got out that vampires were real, and that a whole city was secretly being run by them, just how long would you estimate it might take the armies of the world to start mounting an attack on the vampires? The Volturi do cruel things to the human "tourists" they capture because they want to establish their place at the top of the food chain -- they're actually really ********' scared.
