Morphism:

do you think it's possible to turn yourself into a kind of robot? I mean a human with really no kind of emotion. That's what I would like to do but I'm not sure how to do it. Could I practice this at home in some way? Like when someone tells a joke, I would not laugh. Or when someone says "hi" to me, I would just say "hi" back and not smile or anything. I think it's possible. I've done this in short term periods. I have to find the place in my mind that enables me to do that. I've done it before. Everything becomes logical. So everything you would hear, you'd evaluate from a logical stand point and you would never respond with emotion. I've been told I'm too emotionally driven. Any ideas? Maybe I can secretly practice with people like my mom and whereever I go. They won't know that I'm doing it..and they don't have to know.

Auraslip refering to an RC fourm.

They'd need like 10x LFPs telling them they're all dumbasses to even get a start on the problem.

I know my mom is the root of all these problems. I'm so frocked I either take the money that my mom has been giving me and remain an impotent coward of a man or I become homeless and fight it out in the streets.

Optibike Craig Taber wrote:To be perfectly honest, the CA looks like an Atari era console, and you will never see one on an Optibike from the factory. Its not at all in line with the rest of the design, as its clunky and about a 1.5 our of 10 on the "cool factor." The 1st generation display we came out with was a full color, touch screen display that was probably ahead of its time.

You can rest assured that if we roll out a new display, it will not look like it needs a punchcard to operate- its just not what we do here. :)

to be perfectly honest, i'll take functional over cool factor every single time.
being a poseur is not what we do here.

Amberwolf >>...when you make a tie rod out of two old eyehooks that used to hold up a swing-bench-seat on a porch, plus a bit of tubing from the handle of an old weedeater, and a couple of nuts and washers, and some rollerskate bearings, you can't have perfection forever.


He never ceases to amaze me! American ingenuity at it's finest! This is the guy the front line troops would have given their right arm for in the motor pool during WWII.
