Walt_Jizzney: Waterhouse Masturbation Graph:



Why am I the first one posting this?


Because we were waiting for someone with a euphemism for baby batter in their Fark handle to comment.?

TheMysticS: Matrix Flavored Wasabi: In a previous relationship, Asprey tracked everything his girlfriend ingested, then correlated it with her moods.

I wonder why that relationship ended.

/Also engineers should stop trying to pass themselves off as scientists, they're bad at it

Hey. That's my husband you're speaking of. Aeronautical.

I guess those chemistry, composites, physics, theoretical physics, thermodynamics, and materials classes didn't teach science.

We'd better get our money back!


He's got a point though. Engineers do applied science. Scientists do research science. The rules for the two professions within any given discipline are substantially different, although related. Research methodology has a lot of constraints that engineering methodology doesn't have to bother with, because the engineers are dealing for the most part with what is already known and established. This is exponentially more so in the social and behavioural sciences. "Social engineering" is all too often a fancy way of saying "Ham-handed ideology-based attempts at indoctrination and manipulation".

I agree. Engineering deals with more knowns than unknowns.
Scientific research is just that-tinkering with the unknown.
But, truly, there are plenty of 'scientists' that rack test tube after test tube. Applying. Like in engineering.

Also, don't forget the gap of Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science.

Besides, 'Scientist' is incomplete without, '...of something.'

Genre?

Did we really need data to support the idea that 'cumming' was better than 'not cumming?'

Sure, there are scientists that work in applied jobs. You get work where you can find it, after all. It's just that the training for a scientist focuses on new research, which involves a different methodological mindset than engineering.

And these days. engineers are also "of something", or perhaps "something" engineers is more accurate.

And yes, Canadian.

If having orgasms makes you happy, clearly, the optimum would be a state of constant orgasm.
