"ask a scientist"

258) Question: john carter (06/14/2001, 01:50:15)
how long will it take for global worming to kill off the human race.

Answer: (06/14/2001, 16:36:52)
Its hard to say. Some scientists still dispute that global warming is a product of humanity. Most agree, however, that the average temperature will increase by over 2 degrees within the next century, wreaking havoc on the planet, but probably not enough to result in the extinction of the human race.

Not_Enginerd, you got the Boobies and all you could say was "duh?"

I recommend less subtle means for ending relationships, such as 1)brick to the skull, 2)hire a hitman, or 3)hit-and-run. Just remember to have an alibi prepared.
2002-02-14 01:41:55 AM  
why does it change "f_irst p_ost"?
2002-02-14 01:42:19 AM  
to "Boobies"?
2002-02-14 01:42:59 AM  
Its the Fark-filter
2002-02-14 01:44:22 AM  
Farked already?
Now I really feel rejected.
2002-02-14 01:45:02 AM  
Hmmm. Screaming "YOU BASTARD! YOU F*CKING SON-OF-A-B*TCH!" wasn't listed. Hmmm. How very odd, indeed.
2002-02-14 01:48:00 AM  
Also, they missed "I hope you shoot yourself, bastard. In the head, bastard."
2002-02-14 01:53:47 AM  
I've grown... I can confidently say, "The sex last night was mediocre, but it fulfilled my need for the time. You're not so hot now that I'm sober and I don't really want to know how badly you cook so get the hell out now."

Natural-Selection-At-Work: Bite Me, I paniced

PS Notre Dame sucks
2002-02-14 01:54:57 AM  
Additionally, they missed calmly stating "I have to leave because if I don't, well, I've been debating either leaving or suicide."

(The "shoot yourself" line followed shortly thereafter. Of course, most of you already figured that out.)
2002-02-14 01:55:47 AM  
this is the thread where someone needs to post a link to "ah l'amour" by don hertzfeldt. truly the best relationship story of all time.

homeless, you forgot, NO MEANS NO, YOU BASTARD!
2002-02-14 01:57:42 AM  
"i think it'd be better if we parted as friends," should have been listed. oh, and "you're about as physically attractive and mentally stimulating as a tv show about cabinetmaking on pbs."
2002-02-14 01:58:44 AM  
Um don't dis the cabinet show please. That show is 1337 h4x0r
2002-02-14 02:03:37 AM  
Dude, actually I was the one who said "no". That's why I'm a Bastard.
2002-02-14 02:09:38 AM  
Did I miss something, or did that article completely fail to show how men and women reject differently?
2002-02-14 02:11:34 AM  
oh yeah, I've been that bastard before. how come women are "doing the right thing" if they turn down a horny guy, but when the roles are reversed we're unforgiveable bastards possibly shunned by our friends.

and who could seriously turn me down, anyway?
2002-02-14 02:12:43 AM  
make a pass at a couple of people, Blair... find out for yourself.
2002-02-14 02:14:59 AM  
Alright, here's a classic-
"I love you, I'm just not in love with you."

What the f*ck is that supposed to mean, anyway? To me, it means, "I lied when I said I loved you, 'cause I wanted to do you and some other guys as well."

I dunno, I'm off to bed. Bastard needs his sleep.
2002-02-14 02:18:05 AM  
Want to know why people lie to get out of it? Every single time I've given a flat out "no" to a guy they acted like I said "Maybe" and entered bargining mode. You can't bargin me out of "no". It means farking "NO", asshole. That's when I get mean and they walk away muttering about "that crazy biatch" when they're the one who didn't understand the meaning of a simple two letter word.
2002-02-14 02:55:26 AM  
I usually try to make it so they can say an easy white lie if they don't want to go on a date. Of course, that doesn't work if they're too honest.
2002-02-14 03:52:06 AM  
you have to qualify the "no," Foodbunny. men always follow "no" with "but," so you have to follow "no" with "because..." for example:

"NO. Because I am a cyborg and am incapable of feeling what you humans call desire."

I think men would understand that.
2002-02-14 03:56:49 AM  
I thought this would be a more stimulating post for debate. Then I read the article.
2002-02-14 04:17:07 AM  
Yep. The article is utter farkin fluff. I could have written it off the top of my head.

In my experience, No is often so hard to explain that you feel guilty. You're looking at this guy and you're thinking "but why don't I? I should!"

with guys, it usually just means they've got someone more attractive to sleep with. Which translates to "Maybe later, if you had no self respect whatsoever."
2002-02-14 04:34:32 AM  
My biggest challenge is forgetting to look for a ring. I always forget how old I am now, and what finger it is on. Happend to me twice so far this year. Here's a funny story, I was talking to this girl up at the bar. Just doing the usually friendly bullshiat. I wound up talking to her up until closing time, so I ask her for her bobby digits. She says "I don't think my fiance would like that." So I asked her why she was sitting up at the bar alone if she had a fiance. Then she pointed at the bartender standing in front of us and said, "Because he works here". Am I a Jackass or what?

Customer (Eric Idle): Good morning.

Shopkeeper (Terry Jones): Good morning, sir. Can I help you?

Customer: Help me? Yeah, I'll say you can help me.

Shopkeeper: Yes sir?

Customer: I come about your advert - 'Small white pussy cat for sale. Excellent condition'.

Shopkeeper: Ah. You wish to buy it?

Customer: That's right. Just for the hour. Only I ain't gonna pay more'n a fiver cos it aint worth it.

Shopkeeper: Well it's come from a very good home - it's house trained.

Customer: (long think, goes to door, looks at ads again) Chest of drawers? Chest. Drawers. I'd like some chest of drawers please.

Shopkeeper: Yes sir.

Customer: Does it go?

Shopkeeper: Er, it's over there in the corner. (indicates a wooden chest of drawers)

Customer: Oh. (goes to door, runs his finger down the list of adverts) Pram for sale. Any offers. I'd like a bit of pram please.

Shopkeeper: Ah yes, sir. That's in good condition.

Customer: Oh good, I like them in good condition, eh? Eh?

Shopkeeper: Yes, here it is you see. (picks up pram)

Customer: (looks, pauses, goes back to the door, runs finger again) Babysitter. No, it's a babysitter. Babysitter?

Shopkeeper: Babysitter.

Customer: Babysitter - I don't want a babysitter. Be a blood donor - that's it. I'd like to give some blood please, argh! (shopkeeper shakes head) Oh spit. Which one is it? (shopkeeper slips him a card from out of his pocket) Blond prostitute will indulge in any sexual activity for four quid a week. What does that mean?
2002-02-14 05:04:48 AM  
I'm sorry, I know this is off topic, but watching Natural-Selection-at-Work humiliate himself like that was beautiful. I take pleasure in watching things like that happen.
2002-02-14 05:08:34 AM  
I just went back and reviewed the posts Goatman264. Your right it is beautiful.

*eyes well up with tears*
2002-02-14 06:22:59 AM  
Sorry, but giving a reason doesn't make them listen better, Dude. It's the fact that you said something they didn't want you to say that makes them a) argue with you and b) call you a biatch when you don't cave.

"What part of 'I have a .357 pointed at your spleen' didn't you understand?!"

The only guy who has only been rejected 2 or 3 times is Brad Pitt, and even then it was under protest.

"We found that women are more likely to have reasons, or to be more discriminating in all of those categories," compared with men, said Reneau. The one exception was that women were reluctant to reject someone solely on the basis of their looks. But this was not the case for men. "Men are much more likely to either reject someone--or not--based on physical attractiveness," Reneau said.

Yeah, women will reject for every other reason though. Men have that one vice. I can't tell you how many times I've been rejected.

"welcome to dumpsville, population you."

Patting her arse, "Thanks for the sex", then getting off with two of her best mates generally does the trick I find.

Mythago: There is just no point with some people. 'Conversation' the other day:

Bloke: 'Hi, babe'
Me: (ignores him competely)
Bloke: Can I talk to you?
Me: No.
Bloke: why not?
Me: i don't want to talk to you.
Bloke: why not?
Me: Please go away.
Bloke: don't you want to talk to me?

At this point I defy anyone not to start getting rude. If I wanted to talk to you, why would i be walking away? Andf then he called me a biatch, which was rich coming from a toad-faced jerk-off with the attention span of a retarded toddler. as I pointed out.
2002-02-14 08:12:53 AM  
"Then he called me a biatch, which was rich coming from a toad-faced jerk-off with the attention span of a retarded toddler."

I think I love you. Can we marry?
2002-02-14 09:50:14 AM  
White lies. Women have the must farked up way of rejecting a man. The worst one is just making themselves completely unavailable to him. Making up some lame excuse and lying sucks. Just tell us flat out "this about you makes me uncomfortable and thats why I do not want to be around you." It is not like I have not said that to people before. "Do not come to my house. I do not want to talk to you or interact with you at all untill you change this about yourself. I do not want such and such in my life. You are fine, but its this thing that you do that will not be a part of my life." Yes, I have high standards.
Do not give me some lame lie or excuse. Tell me upfront and tell me why.
Oh, yeah, this girl cancelled the movie on me last night, why? Because she felt ill this morning, she felt something coming on and it would make her feel uncomfortable to sit at the movie for a few hours. Well fark her, she made a promise. She broke it. She set the time and date and cancelled last min. Cover it up with a lie. Decieving little biatches, women can be. Even the good ones. I hate liers and thieves. 2 most hate-worthy people. :)

The girl tried to ease the cancellation saying it would be fine if I came over and made dessert with her. hrmmm... (not what you think). I told her she would have to have the dessert already made to make up for cancelling the movie.


2002-02-14 09:58:47 AM  
I dont think I like your tone Dllmn, It makes me uncomfortable about you, and dont think you should show yourself around here till you change that about yourself.
2002-02-14 10:24:23 AM  
Farking Eye.. I probably whould not like you either so lets hope we do not run into each other and if we did lets not hang around each other. Liers and thieves I do not want to have anything to do with. You choose your kind. You choose your friends and your standards. Everyone does, and I am pretty sure if you are repelled by my views and feelings then I am probably repelled by yours too. :) I am not lukewarm. Either you like me or you hate me. I am happy and proud of the friends I keep because they are truly great people. The easiest friends to make are the worst ones. I do not make friends at bars, getting drunk and those who keep such friends as well as fellow drug users and other losers are probably repelled by me too. Hey.. you choose your sides, it does not affect me.
2002-02-14 10:32:34 AM  
Aww... Dllmn's getting all self-righteous. Maybe it's because he's been hurt before and doesn't want to open up emotionally for fear of it happening again.

Or maybe he just fancies himself as a "playa".

Hehe. Egos are funny things.
2002-02-14 10:38:04 AM  
I love watching a woman rip my heart out and ingest it.
2002-02-14 10:41:08 AM  
"Women have the must farked up way of rejecting a man. The worst one is just making themselves completely unavailable to him. "

This is the one I've gotten the most, and I find the excuses more insulting than the rejection, although when a girl can't see you because 'tonight's her meditation class', it doesn't leave much room for wondering how she feels (unless you're one of those pathetic losers that has to ask all your friends if that means she doesn't like you). And I suppose getting the point across is the idea, so too bad for us.
2002-02-14 11:02:27 AM  
"The worst one is just making themselves completely unavailable to him."

Well, sometimes that's lame, and sometimes it's avoiding a stalker. When you tell a guy you want to break up and he trots along after you like an overgrown puppy ARGUING with you, for god's sake, a meditation class sounds positively fun.

Take heart--usually as women get older the fear that some guy will call you the B-word goes away, and we get more direct.

"Being fat, stupid, mean, ugly, poor and constantly drunk is no way to go through life and I'm not about to go through it with you."

According to a study in Scotland, the kind of male face a woman finds attractive can differ depending on where she is in her menstrual cycle.

For instance, if she is ovulating she is attracted to men with rugged, masculine features and if she is menstruating she is more attracted to a man with scissors shoved in his temple.

Explains it all I guess....
2002-02-14 11:30:34 AM  
Just remember, you can be just as farked (possibly more) if you catch the woman than if you dont catch..
2002-02-14 11:37:39 AM  
Dllmn: I hear ya bro.

Yesterday I was suppose to go with a "friend" to eat. She was supposed to call me at 7:30. 9 rolls around and she gets online and says that she fell asleep. I told her it was bullshiat and if she even remotly cared she wouldn't have. Twice the whore as called late, once she said she dialed the wrong number. She couldn't even defend herself and said she wouldn't bother with a response. All she said was she thinks some people are not compatible. farking horse crap. I wouldn't be as pissed if that biatch would give me a straight answer but I know she doesn't give a shiat. I see this as a learning expeience..know I'm going to be an asshole instead of suck a nice guy.. *sigh*
2002-02-14 11:39:26 AM  
"Take heart--usually as women get older the fear that some guy will call you the B-word goes away, and we get more direct."

Ooh - something to look forward to. Instead of 'Tonight's my toenail painting night', I'll get to hear "No thanks, you're ugly."

Well, not really. I've since lowered my physical standards so I only ask out women who are in my league. They have better personalities anyway. Is that a sign of maturity? Or is that one step closer to death.
2002-02-14 11:45:39 AM  
suck=such..damn that vodka..still feeling the effects :-)

"Well, not really. I've since lowered my physical standards so I only ask out women who are in my league. They have better personalities anyway. Is that a sign of maturity? Or is that one step closer to death." -Abox

Wow.. that is very interesting Abox.. thanks for sharing that. Do you have alot of experiance with dating, attractive and so-so looking ladies?
Do you become more attracted to them as you learn to like their better personalities? That is.. do you eventually find them more attractive? I wonder about this one too: Is sex better with a great looking, thin girl or with an intelligent, mentally bright and developed girl? Is the sex worse with a so-so looking girl? It would seem to me that a girl that does not look that pretty would not give as much of a hard-on as one that was very pretty and thus the sex would be less enjoyed by both partners. I also wonder if people are natrually attracted to those who would be best for them (not the mass-media generated attraction to tall thin blonds with big boobies) and so by avoiding the girls you are most attracted to you could be avoiding the best woman for you, this might be completely false though.
2002-02-14 01:08:23 PM  
Actually, Abox, I meant that you'll get "No" instead of "well, okay, maybe" and then she doesn't show up on date night.

Greenbeaux, a hint: the guys who are really nice are not the ones who throw tantrums about what nice guys they really are.
