What do you mean? How can you be sick of that song? I've heard it 519,311 times AND I'M NOT TIRED OF IT AT ALL.

Glad I benefited too! I like Daft Punk, though I never got the appeal of their concerts.

The classics never die, how can you not love their awesome repetitive techno?

Good stuff.

I did only read "make it better" in passing and thought you were referring to the Beatles 'Hey Jude'.

So, does 'Wendy's Girlfriend' live with her family, or is she on her own?

She doesn't seem quite the type to have classical music programmed in her doorbell.

That being said; Nowheresville is a small population isolated both geographically and culturally. The historical records would probably be a primary source for the popular culture. This would reinforce the tendency of the local society to be conservative and slow to change.

So maybe she does have classical tastes. Besides, anyone who cares for Cats is a superior person by definition!

Aren't there any male sex-bots in the future?
JasperWB 3rd Apr 2012, 1:27 AM edit delete reply
JasperWB
No. That future must be avoided, lest things turn out like that episode of the Outer Limits where all the fathers in families were replaced by robots who did their job far better and basically rendered them obsolete...except with sex in this case.

That can't be allowed to happen. It's the last thing that keeps us males safe from gender annihilation. I imagine the existing male robots have a Fourth Rule built in already that removes them as a threat.

"Fourth Rule": What is that? Automatic flaccidity in the presence of any active x-y chromosomal material?

More like "Robots being male sex-bots kept as easily as a vacuum in a closet violate the First Law by harming the human male gender on a genocidal level, Second Law be damned"

To make it clear, sexbots in general are uncommon, but come in a variety of sexes.

A male sexbot ?
That'd be like a communal dildo ... ew ew ew !!

*shudders*

Communal dildo is one of the greatest word combinations I have seen in a looooong time. It shocks, it could offend, it would make a great insult. It covers the bases.

Would a female sexbot be any more inherently sanitary?
cattservant 3rd Apr 2012, 9:12 PM edit delete reply
cattservant
Seems as if sanitization would require few extra steps.
Sheela 3rd Apr 2012, 9:20 PM edit delete reply
Sheela
Yes, well, sanity and creepyness would require something too.

Robot brothels just have giant dishwashers in them you wheel units into. The industrial ones with the metal sheets you pull down.

@Sheela: Don't you think that all three are inextricably linked at some level?

@sheela (Lady avatar, from Lady and the Tramp)

It's way too late to expect a response, but is a communal dildo worse than a communal penis? "Ew ew ew"-wise?

Robots are people in this world. Dildos and penises can both be sullied, and washed. So really, if you're going to pass either one around…

I suppose the "communal" part really depends on how promiscuous the robot is. Being a sexbot does not necessarily mean that it is or is not available to multiple people. For that matter, I suppose there could be a non-scented, nooooo, non-sentient robot. That would make it property. Which, again, does not preclude it being passed around or kept to one person.

Asking "How do I look" confers a 10-point penalty to attractiveness.

Unless said just right through a sexy smile in a dimly lit room with Marvin Gay in the background as she slowly walks towards you removing any clothing still on her body. Then the lights go out and the kissing sta...........what were we talking about again?
