More Creepy Sex

Even Robot Sex Has It's Down Side

I was yanked out of patrol and worked street prostitution details for a little while back in the 80's. The PD needed "fresh blood" every few months or so to go after the hookers who were at times out of control downtown. They stopped cars and propositioned male drivers even if their wives were in the front seat with them.

The girls were mostly pitiful and not too bright, some were vicious; one in particular was psychotic, bonkers - a screaming loony named Carmen. Of course that was the one I had a run in with on a busy Friday night in the middle of traffic - no gun, no badge (the whores would check you for them), the walkie-talkie left in the car, a half naked crazy whore and a carload of football players ... story some other time maybe.

But technology changes things. And of course it now seems on the brink of changing the way men rent a woman for pleasure.
It’s 2020, and Roger, a recent divorcé from New York, decides to pay for some female company. So he turns on his computer, connects a robotic vagina to it and starts having sex with Cinnamon, a college student in Sydney with a computer and a remotely controlled robotic penis.

Creeped out yet? Welcome to the future of prostitution.
If you're a guy, the way it works is like this.
  1. You rent/buy a USB device that slips over your male member and then plug it into your computer/tablet/smart phone while working behind the counter at McDonald's, driving a school bus or babysitting your grandchildren. 
  2. You contact a virtual prostitute over the interwet tubes.
  3. It could be a real woman - or guy -  or neither - you won't know, even with a webcam.
  4. The prostitute/program is interfaced with a device that reproduces the action of a vagina, mouth, chicken or lawn mower when a penis is inserted into it.
  5. Enter your credit card number and prepare to have your greased-up, latex world rocked.
In a completely immersive virtual reality environment you could pay to find yourself in an airplane over the Pacific doing Amelia Earhart, under the desk of the Oval Office channeling Monica or mid-field of the 1936 Berlin Olympic Stadium wearing a tutu and sniffing Jesse Owens' track shoes.

Your dollar, your fantasy.
To be sure, technology alone is not going to remove crime or exploitation from the sex work equation. So while technology can make a difference, some experts say, it depends on the position of the sex worker to begin with. “The Internet is still out of reach for the most vulnerable, those who work on the streets,” says Samantha Majic, an assistant political science professor at the City University of New York who specializes in the politics of sex work. So, less than a democratizing tool, virtual sex may just evolve as the guilty pleasure of lonely, wealthy, sci-fi lovers. Working online also has its own risks. It can make it harder to detect abusive clients or undercover cops and isolate workers who would otherwise naturally share tips and advice.
Every twisted desire that the human mind can dredge up will be available in the comfort of your livingroom with a WiFi whore.

At least you won't find out that crazy Carmen is double jointed as she slams her knee into your balls.

Fair And Balanced

Fair and Balanced and Heavily Medicated. That's me.
Not all Muslims are haters.
It's just so hard to develop munitions that only kill the maniacs.

Given the radical Islamic insurgence in their country, it would seem that the Iraqi Muslims in this video are literally taking their lives into their hands by speaking out about the plight of Christians in Iraq.

My Army daughter had an Iraqi Christian friend while she was studying in Cairo. We never met Susan (that's what she wanted to be called) but from my daughter's stories, she is a very sweet young woman.

Her friend's parents packed up the family and left Iraq after Saddam Hussein's regime fell due to fear of radical Islam. Many, many Christians have left Iraq. Susan's family now lives in Chicago, they are still friends. It is for these Christians that the TV personalities weep.

The Crusades Are Not Jihad

For an excellent summary of the confusing, dualistic, homicidal mishmash of religo-politial bullshit that is Islamic doctrine (I have a copy of the Koran and it is psychotic gibberish to me) go here.  But, like in most of life, not all Muslims subscribe to violent jihad. Many Muslims are like Christians in that they pick and choose what doctrine they believe. More on that later.

More on the creator of the video, Bill Warner.
Bill Warner holds a PhD in physics and math, NC State University, 1968. He has been a university professor, businessman, and applied physicist.

Dr. Warner has had a life-long interest in religion and its effects on history. He has studied the source texts of the major religions for decades. Even before the destruction of the World Trade Center he had predicted the war between Islam and America.

Dr. Warner’s training in scientific theory and mathematics shaped how he analyzed Islamic doctrine.

Statistical methods applied to the Islamic texts showed that:
· Islam is far more of a political system than a religion.
· There is no unmitigated good in Islam for the Kafir (non-Muslim).
· Islam’s ethical system is dualistic and is not based on the Golden Rule.
· Islamic doctrine cannot be reconciled with our concepts of human rights and our Constitution.
· The great majority, 96%, of all Islamic doctrine about women subjugates them.
· The Sunna (what Mohammed did and said) is more important than the Koran in a Muslim’s daily life.

Chinese Take Out ... Taiwan?

Why China Will Lose the War It is Planning
By David Archibald

How do we know the war is coming in the first place? Because the advertising for it is out. Amongst plenty of other evidence, one Chinese front organisation conducted a poll on Australian attitudes to the ANZUS treaty and a Chinese attack on Japan. Why would they conduct such a poll unless they are going to attack Japan? Not that they were interested in the results as such. They just wanted to be able to publicize the poll in order to try to keep Australia on the sidelines of their war.

The war will have two functions for China. Firstly, it will provide legitimacy for the regime as economic growth stalls. Secondly, the Chinese will have pride in humiliating their neighbouring countries, and the United States, by defeating them in battle and creating no-go zones in the oceans which other countries won’t be able to enter without Chinese permission. The war will have nothing to do with oil and gas resources under the seabed and securing sea-lanes. The Chinese have never offered those excuses for their behavior themselves. The excuses are the creation of Western pundits for something that otherwise is stupid, destructive, and primitive.

Some have seen this war coming well in advance. In 2005, Robert Kaplan wrote an article entitled How We Would Fight China. In it he notes that China will approach the war “asymmetrically, as terrorists do. In Iraq the insurgents have shown us the low end of asymmetry, with car bombs. But the Chinese are poised to show us the high end of the art.”
The rest of the story is here.
Good luck with not buying goods manufactured in China.

How To Get Crushed By A 57 Story Buiding

Don't bother leaping over this building in a single bound.
It'll come down all on its own soon enough.

A developer in China has built an entire 57-story building in just 19 days.

And as this time-lapse video shows, the Mini Sky City building was put up brick by brick at a rate of three full storeys a day in Changsha, the capital of Hunan Province in south-central China.

The building has 800 apartments and enough office space for 4,000 people. It was originally planned to be built up to a height of 220 storys, but it was cut down because of concern it was too close to a nearby airport.

While On Their Way To Get More Doritos

I'm surprised more people in Colorado aren't seeing stuff like this all day, every day.
Coloradans who were up before the sun on Wednesday morning saw a "bright green" fireball soar across the sky before it burned out over the mountains.

More than 60 eyewitnesses filed sightings on the American Meteor Society's website.

Didn't See This In The News, Didja?

An off duy police officer was robbed and shot seven times. The three pices of s**t that did this are black. Deputy Scott Wood of the Wyandotte County Sheriff's Office is expected to survive.
KANSAS CITY, Kan. — Wyandotte County prosecutors brought charges against three men on Friday accused of carrying out an armed robbery at a Family Dollar store at 13th and Quindaro on March 3.

Charles Bowser, Dyron King and Cecil Meggerson have all been charged with two counts of aggravated robbery, one count of conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery and one count of criminal possession of a firearm related to the incident. All are being held in jail on $1 million bonds.

ATF Backs Off

From Fox News:
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is shelving a proposal to ban a popular but highly lethal type of bullet, amid opposition from gun-rights advocates and hundreds of members of Congress.

The agency said in a statement on Tuesday it would not seek to issue the final guidelines "at this time." The proposal pertained to M855 "green tip" ammunition, used in the AR-15 rifle, which regulators looked at banning because it can pierce police body armor.

The ATF said it would instead wait until Americans have finished commenting on the federal regulations and evaluate their comments and suggestions before "proceeding with any framework."
Still, Fox News made an idiot comment.
Basically all bullets are "highly lethal."
That's why they make bullets instead of marshmallows dummy.

How Then Should We Live?

I realized a long time ago that living for and by myself was not my cup of tea. I'm not saying that that it's a terrible way to live, but I'm just not built that way. After my first marriage crashed and burned I was gun shy; I was divorced by 24 and remarried at 32. Now after 30+ years my wife and I get along pretty well. There were rocky patches to be sure but the lug nuts of our marriage were tight thanks to our commitment to God and each other.

Now that the youngest is out of college we have more disposable income. We aren't rich, we aren't poor, but at last we're comfortable. Now comes the more intense preparations for living out the last of our years. During this time I have more and more opportunity to look back and evaluate what we've done and to thank God for His provision. And for our family.

Our oldest daughter and her husband and their four kids were over yesterday for a Sunday dinner of Grandma's pasta, sauce and meatballs. Their twentieth anniversary is next month. Our middle daughter and her husband (married now for 18 months) were also there as well as the youngest daughter just out of college and rarin' to move to NYC to make her mark in the fashion industry. Our Army girl Skyped in later in the afternoon and we spoke with her for a spell.

Listening to the uproar, the banter of my wife and daughters, the laughter, the silliness ... there's nothing that can replace it, there's no way to put a price on it, there's no way to grow it without years of commitment and sacrifice.

I talked my wife into quitting her job at the phone company after our second child was born (she made more than me on my police salary). I wanted her home with the kids. That was twenty-seven years ago - I remember praying that nothing would break because I couldn't afford to fix it. I grabbed all the extra overtime I could find and did construction/remodeling work on the side.  My Dad was a hard worker, that's how I was brought up and I just did what I was expected to do.

I'd do it again in a heart beat 'cause it's all worth it. And the older I get the more I appreciate the value of our family.

Cardigan over at iOTW posted something about the decisions people are making today about family. It's downright discouraging. People are abandoning the creation of families in order to please themselves. From the Jewish World Review:
[...]In Europe, the most rapidly growing type of family unit is the one-person household. Such households already make up one-third of the households in Western Europe and 45% in Denmark. Japanese demographers Miho Iwasaw and Ryuichi Kaneko project that twenty years from now over 50% of Japanese women will never have grandchildren. Already those born after 1990 have less than a fifty percent chance of marrying and staying married until age fifty. Nor are these trends confined to affluent educated societies. A similar flight from marriage and childbearing is taking place in the Arab world.

It was partly in order to replace a declining labor pool that Europe allowed the immigration of millions of Muslims, and thereby set the stage for violent social conflict in the not too distant future.

Finally, the conjunction of childlessness with increased longevity means that it will fall upon government to care for growing numbers of elderly suffering from dementia or otherwise unable to care for themselves and with no family members to do so. That development alone will fuel calls for healthcare rationing, the termination of life-support, and assisted suicide — in short, the rejection of the idea that human life itself is a value.

As the flight from family takes wing, however, the pattern of life satisfaction increasing with age will reverse. If life is based solely on the fulfillment of one's hedonistic desires, those desires are more easily attained in youth than in middle-age and beyond. Those who choose a life without commitment or encumbrance are likely to find themselves living an ever more lonely existence as they age.
So very, very sad.

Cuomo Learns His ABC's

New York's thug governor can save his campaign war chest as a dowry for his daughters. From the NY Post:
Top New York Democrats are whispering for the first time that Hillary Clinton may not be their presidential candidate next year. And while they’re far from agreeing on whom it might be, they do agree on one thing: It won’t be Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

“People in the party all hate him,’’ one of the state’s best-known Democratic operatives told The Post.

A prominent Democratic elected official added, “There’s an ABC factor at work here. It’s ‘Anybody But Cuomo.’’’

In a series of interviews remarkable for their hostility toward Cuomo, several top Democrats well known to the public told The Post that should Clinton be forced to abandon her quest for the presidency by the scandal over her private State Department email accounts, there is no clear alternative for New Yorkers.
There's a new sign on the White House lawn:
