Telegraph.co.uk. ^ | 11 Jan 2010 | Andrew Hough

Posted on 01/22/2010 9:43:06 AM PST by Malone LaVeigh

The world’s first “sex robot”, a life-size rubber doll called Roxxxy who can have real conversations with her owner, including about football, has been unveiled. The dark-haired, negligee-clad, life-size robotic girlfriend comes complete with artificial intelligence and flesh-like synthetic skin.

Standing five feet, seven inches tall, the doll weighs 120 pounds, comes with five “personalities”, is “ready for action” her developers said.

“Why is it incumbent upon men to put the seat down...why don’t women share equal responsibility to put it up?”

Because the majority rules. And by majority, I mean, you may pee standing up but all other toilet “activities” for both males and females require the seat to be down. So: males peeing = 1. Males pooping + females peeing + pooping = 3. Got it?

“As easy and shallow as many women are these days, I can’t see what purpose this serves.”

Let me get this straight - you choose to insult women on a thread about stupid, desperate, immature men building a doll because they can’t *deal* or won’t *deal* with a live female? Allrighty then...good luck with all that.

Good grief. Some of you women frigging amaze me. Are you so driven by emotion that you are incapable of logical thought?

I said MANY women, not ALL women. I didn’t even say MOST women.

Unless you’re one of those shallow, easy women, I see no reason why you should get your panties in a knot.

Well, you’re not the first, and probably won’t be the last.

I am curious about something:
Why would you get offended because I insulted a group of women that you’re more than likely not a part of?

I certainly don’t get offended when someone insults a group of men that I have no affiliation with.

I didn’t get offended. I just pointed out that you insulted women (didn’t say how many or which ones) when the topic of the article is about men who are interested in a fake female for myriad reasons. That’s all. You brought up panties getting bunched, emotions, etc.

And no, I’m not a part of the women you spoke of.

Funny, that’s *exactly* the whining I hear from Mrs. Tick. But, women! Who can believe ‘em? :-) Y’all probably get together at Bunko and discuss among yourselves what “stories” to use on your slow-witted husbands.

Sometimes I have to “sit” when I get up in the middle of the night. I have learned to reach around behind and check if the seat’s down. But I realize men are better at working complex mechanical devices with lots of moving parts... like a potty seat.

>> Males pooping + females peeing + pooping = 3. Got it?

apparently... to an incorrect, shallow first-order approximation that assumes an even distribution of toilet events.

A better model would be:

Pseat = f(gender, diet, beerConsumption, scratchUrge)

where

gender = {male, female}
beerConsumption(male)=12; beerConsumption(female)=3.1
scratchUrge(male)=1; scratchUrge(female)=0

Clearly your model breaks down by assuming e(toilet), i.e. toilet events, are evenly distributed among #1 and #2.

But you fail to take into account the gross (!) differences in beerConsumption and scratchUrge among the gender=male cohort. (Footnote: scratchUrge can only be satisfied with seat = UP.)

The detailed mathematics* are left as an exercise for the reader, but it can be shown that lidUp toilet events occur at a frequency four to five times higher than lidDown events.

Therefore, lidUp = 5(1) = 5, whereas lidDown (as in your simple model) = 3 (and some researchers believe the ratio to be even higher).

The natural position of the lid is, as you can see from this analysis, UP.

*Males are MUCH better at math. That was your first mistake.

Okay...THAT is funny!

You do realize I am a female beer drinker and my husband doesn’t drink beer at all. Neither does my son - unless we wanted child protective services after us. SO...where does that leave me in my house?!

On 2nd thought, save your brain for more taxing problems, like whether the toilet paper roll is hung outsies or insies. :)

A statistical anomaly — i.e. the exception that proves the rule. Of course, we would have to have scratchUrge data to do the full computation.

Generally speaking, perhaps. But women are better at biology. When the toilet flushes, tiny particles of water spray out, too small to see but big enough to carry bacteria, and that spray easily travels 6 feet if the lid is open.

If your toothbrush is within 6 feet of the toilet, and you flush with it open, you're brushing your teeth with toilet water.

At my house, regardless of the seat, the lid stays shut when not in use!

That also keeps pets and young children from being tempted by the water.

I have a pretty low scratching quotient, but I can burp *really* loud on cue. ;)

The answer to the age-old question of t.p. hanging is: it hangs with the sheet rolling over the top close to the user. But males can’t change t.p. rolls, so it was a trick question.
