Fucking Gosling made it work. There's a shot for the Short White Hope yet.

I used to have a toaster oven. I used it like a regular oven coz I'm a cheap arse. It went up in flames and melted most of it's casing after I tried putting chips in it.... Shocked

mine is pretty great at being an oven as long as i don't put anything on top of it, because the top gets really hot.

well, it tends to burn the tops of muffins (real muffins, not those english kind) if i try to warm them up without wrapping them in foil but i think that's mostly because it is short. but i love it anyway.

You're making an awful lot of generalizations and judgements there. Enjoying casual sex doesn't make you a sex addict, and it doesn't mean you're a rude or unempathetic person.

As for the "taking care of them-self" thing, there are physical sensations of person-to-person sex that masturbation can not fully replicate. It doesn't require emotion to want that.

You missed my point that sex is not an emotionless thing. Those "sensations" you can experience with another person are tied to emotions. The simple nature of human contact brings out emotions in people. And its different to every person. Like my wife and I, we are quick to give people who are receptive large hugs, etc, but for some the idea of that would be terrifying.

The idea of having intercourse with someone without putting any emotion into the act is impossible for the most people. Even people having casual sex with someone are applying emotion in some way. It's a very powerful act, even when marginalized by society as it is now. If you are exposed to it in one way or another it can change who you are or your outlook on life and relationships, even your opinion of yourself.

If you meant "emotions" in the very literal sense, fine. Yes, even saying "hello" to an acquaintance will inspire some emotion, however small. Your post implied romantic love, but maybe I misinterpeted that. We could get into a semantics war over the difference between physical sensation and emotion, but it'd go nowhere.

The main issue is that you made reductive generalizations about groups of people. Your post implies, not so subtly, that there's something wrong with people who are honest enough to admit they only want sex. You've essentially painted them as either desperate for love or just assholes with no feelings. Enjoying casual sex doesn't make you a jerk. Being a jerk makes you a jerk. Being "logically minded" also doesn't mean you avoid casual sex.

Sex isn't an inherently powerful thing. It's just an act. People may attach personal value to that act, but those values are informed by society. You can have sex and still be the same person you were before.

Yeah. It's kind of hard to find things in this mess. =/ haha

And no, by emotions I don't mean feelings of "love" or anything like that. That even in casual sex, even when people are honest and admit they want it, the fact that they need to do it with another person implies a need to get something out of it. Yes it's something physical, but that sensation created by physical contact ties back to emotional needs or else we wouldn't need the physical contact in the first place. It's not love. It's a need. It's the same way you can love someone but not get all your physical needs fulfilled at the same time. But that physical need is tied to emotions. It's brain chemistry even. People who are into casual sex are feeding a need of theirs. Granted, most of the time that ties back to something that happened in the past of their lives to influence our needs and emotions on that matter.

I'm completely trying to avoid going deeper into the likelihood of psychological issues and emotions because of it. There's plenty of things you can say on this issue, but it's more suited for people like Dogen who actually have some credibility in the matter.

Anyway, not a lot else to say on it. I mean, I don't want to add to the length of this thread. It might eat the forum if it gets much larger.'



Also, the new pairing is awesome, as obvious because Miss Magenta ended up drawing it.

Fair enough. I misunderstood what you meant. Embarassed

We're cool now.

The strip fits much better a metaphore about "dream girls" guys fantasize about than a metaphore about girls programmed to act in a certain way. Slick can't find a girlfriend, he gets a fake relationship, tries to make it real and fails.

If the strip were a metaphore about women being educated to act in a certain way the robot girl would have been given more of a personality from the beginning, she would be the protagonist, but she isn't, Slick is the protagonist. The strip is about him.

Wow, you so almost get it. You're first mistake is assuming a single interpretation of the strip is correct or covers all meanings. Your second mistake is assuming that "what guys fantasize about" and "girls being programmed to act a certain way" are mutually exclusive; the ideas are so interdependent upon each other that you really can't talk about one without talking about the other.

a good toaster oven can compensate for being short through the use of a small internal fan to maintain a constant temperature throughout

I don't have a toaster. Sad I just use a frying pan, a bit of butter, and toast it that way. As a side note, I don't eat toast that often.

By the way, decided to google it. I almost can't believe that Brave Little Toaster is an actual thing and not a joke that ShadowCell and Miss M. were making together on the fly.

I guess that this whole topic shows that it's a topic worth analyzing, but it really doesn't look like something anyone would like to film, or animate for that matter.

What about if you get things like centaurs or other creatures that are half half? Does that mean you can only give them oral sex? Surprised

I don't see how that is the least bit relevant to the questions that that test asks

unless they have something akin to multiple personality disorder but infinitely worse

Well their heads and upper bodies are human and capable of speech but the lower half is an animal. So technically it's still beastiality. Thats my point.
