The Most Spoiled Girl In The World

I thought this was fake, but the second part of the vid seems to be a legitimate news report on the girl. Apparently she was on ABC's Wife Swap.

Stay with it.

Of course the real villains here are her parents. I have no idea what sort of world they imagine they're preparing their daughter for. But I do not think the world she will one day enter will be one revolving entirely around her.

And that is going to cause some major problems.

Thanks to JasonF.

Speaking of Spoiling Kids... Take a look at what all of you parents -- all of you -- are going to have to buy your kids soon.

It's both reassuring, creepy, and threatening, like a pimp's love.

Unrelated, I'm sure:

This is the bizarre romantic future envisioned by David Levy in his new book, Love and Sex With Robots: "Love with robots will be as normal as love with other humans. While the number of sexual acts and lovemaking positions commonly practised between humans will be extended, as robots teach us more than is in all of the world's published sex manuals combined. Love and sex with robots on a grand scale are inevitable."


In Japan, home of the Tamagotchi and Honda's ASIMO robot, scientists have made significant leaps in creating realistically lifelike robots whose response to stimuli gets more sophisticated with each new model.


For about $7,000, you can be the proud owner of a robot "sex-doll" and comes complete with "nipple sensors," Mr. Levy says. It will likely be in the next five years, he adds, that an android is created so lifelike that sex with a robot starts becoming normal practice.

It could also be a solution for the masses of socially awkward or unattractive people to fulfill their sexual urges and desires when all other avenues to meet a partner have been exhausted. "Not everybody can go out and get a date when they want one," Mr. Levy said.


Thanks to Asher.
