Speaking of Fembots: Japanese Create Realistic/Creepy Female Robot

Westworld, baby.

A while ago I read an article, maybe on Slate, that stated that almost all media technology, no matter what it's original intention, quickly became popularized and advanced by its pornographic usages.

Cave drawings? Pottery? Statuary? A lot of them show dirty stuff.

Writing? Well. I'm sure words for "gynie" and "boobie" were invented before, say, "reverse mortgate."

The printing press? Well, the Bible was the biggest engine, but close behind it were thousands of pornographic books.

Photography? Film? Yup.

Videotapes? Forget about it. Some say we wouldn't even have had a thriving videotape marked if not for porn-- which was always the biggest profit-source for mom & pop operations. The legitimate moves were loss-leaders just to get you behind the curtains in the back of the shop.

And the internet? I think we all know the name of that tune.

And now robotics. Yes, we all want a robotic pool-cleaner or lawn-mower.

But you know what's going to get us full-blown androids, right?

Not their usefulness as greeters at corporate offices.

The sexual urge drives so much human industry-- as Dave Chappelle said, if I guy could get laid in a cardboard box, he wouldn't bother renting an apartnment or buying a house. And it drives a hell of a lot technological innovation too.

Men think about sex once every minute or two. And hence: The Brooklyn Bridge.

You're welcome.

Islamism Is Ahead Of The West: They've decided to simply make their women into biological robots, like in Blade Runner, I guess.

PS, what the hell were the androids in Blade Runner? It wasn't clear to me in the book if they were just really cloned humans, and the movie calls the "replicants" but there they're plainly entirely biological. Not "androids" at all.

Maybe that's just what people in the future call them to deny the fact that they're simply owning cloned human slaves.
