To make the [abstinence-only] point, Mr. Love grabbed a tape dispenser and snapped off two fresh pieces. He slapped them to his filing cabinet and the floor; they trapped dirt, lint, a small metal bolt. “Now when it comes time for them to get married, the marriage pulls apart so easily,” he said, trying to unite the grimy strips. “Why? Because they gave the stickiness away.”

Regexhibit matches regex using perl, and provides all kinds of details about the match / capture groups. Previously I would test regexes (regexen?) in SubEthaEdit, but this does it on the fly. Very handy indeed!
