A rather odd aside: several years ago, I saw t-shirt worn by a high schooler in the hall at a school where I was subbing. It said something to the effect of "I am a Chinese Philosopher. My name is
I
Fling
Poo"

No, I'm not making this up, or trying to be punny...

The over whelming, never ending circle of red tape bullshit involved with a death in the UK.

A constant plethora of  paperwork, phone calls, letters, and now, a signed will isn't enough, probate...... involving some blood sucking lawyer screwing us at 100/ 200 an hour no doubt.

The whole process from registration to now is a ridiculous farce, and to top it all the funeral place wont release the ashes to the widow because my brother visiting from the states booked the funeral.

Really? Uumm best I don't get involved too much, I foresee plenty of profanities and a nasty situation in the offing..............

Sex robot sent for repairs after being molested at tech fair



The realistic doll was left "heavily soiled" after visitors got too hands-on


An AI sex doll has been left “heavily soiled” and in need of repairs after being repeatedly molested while on display at a tech fair.
The £3,000 Samantha sex robot suffered two broken fingers and was left in a filthy state by a barrage of male attention at the Arts Electronica Festival in Linz, Austria.
According to the Metro, the doll’s developer, Sergi Santos, from Barcelona, Spain complained, “The people mounted Samantha’s breasts, her legs and arms. Two fingers were broken. She was heavily soiled.”

I answered a phone call at work last night, the lady asked me if we carried upholstery grade burlap. She wanted to reupholster some chairs. I very politely replied that I had never heard of upholstery grade burlap, but we had regular burlap... she hung up without saying goodbye. Burlap covered chairs? No thanks...

It just doesn't stop. I mean, it's not surprising really, we knew about the goings on behind closed doors in the entertainment industry, except that we naively thought before it was all consensual and now that people are talking, we actually know the true extent of the evil regarding sexual improprieties in the entertainment industry...

The latest accused is now the former director of the Metropolitan Opera in New York. And now more than ever, I'm convinced that the whole lot of perpetrators paraded on TV must belong to "GAWEUMFASA," otherwise known as the "Global Association of Wealthy Evil Ugly Men in Favor of Sexual Abuse."  Tongue  What the hell is going on?? Rape left and right - often against minors. but also against women. Putting the ancient Roman orgiastic reputation to shame. If it was THIS bad, how could people not had done anything about it for so many decades?

I'm sorry, but I cynically say.

Many cases (not all) which is now called rape and it was consensual.

Classic deal - career through sex. It was a messy and inequitable transactions. But a voluntary transaction.

Scandal this I like. I love movement and vanity. Hope unspoken rules in the industry change. Although there is no doubt the stakes are high.

But many of the stories about the "rape" call the irony.

But many of the stories about the "rape" call the irony.

Where it gets problematic is in the legal definition of "concensual." And the fact that the aggresor tended to be so much older than the victim.
Even in the 1970s, in most American states, there already existed a definition of "statuatory rape." The phrase means that a person under the age of consent (16 years, 17 years 18 years, depending on the state), cannot be legally giving "consent" to sex. The age of consent is 16 years in Alabama, and 17 years for Texas. Allowing for an age difference of no more than 3 years, in case of similar age, to avoid jailing the 18 year old boyfriend of the 17 year old girl). Otherwise, the adult is automatically thrown in jail.

A lot of homosexual relationships involved minors around the age of 15 (for example the actor Kevin Spacey). In the heterosexual case involving females, the age went down to 14 (Judge Moore candidate for the Senate representing Alabama, 30+ years old at the time and dating a 14 year old girl. Clearly he was violating the law in Alabama at the time).

They can't be jailed now because too many years have passed ("statute of limitations"), and perhaps the relationships were consensual. But the law would not care if the child consented.

OBJECTION!  Teenagers HAVE brains- BUT the educational system does not teach them to USE them, & they have little incentive to develop such skills on their own.  There ARE exceptions, & one or two of them are on this Forum.  (I'm not one of them- I'm 70!)

They have little experience. And a lot of hormones. They have age of protest, even if the education system tells them the right things.

*Mod hat on*

Ok guys, we're getting dangerously close to politics/religion and ethics here. And if the discussion continues in its' current vein we might well offend/cause problems for some members.

I suggest we draw a veil over this particular issue now, alright?
