No: Mary Shelley at Lord Byron's estate

I would not like to live as Mary Shelley at Lord Byron's country estate in Geneva.
You know, like in the film Gothic.
True, Mary Shelley obtained a place in every English major's library after that.
Still, I'm never living there.

Here's why:
  • I bet Lord Byron was a snot. What with that "Lord" title and all.
  • Maybe drugs!
  • Plaguing myself with the notion that perhaps science is going too far.
  • Being married to a guy with a mama's boy name like "Percy."
