Yea, and I wonder how many guys would like to be like Angel, inshape, good
looking and never aging or having to go to the gym to keep the pounds off.
(TV show spun off from Buffy). Great line this week at the end as the bad
guys were warned away... "BTW, I am not human".

On the other hand it would be a bummer not being able to consummate your
love interest without everything going to hell. I wonder if masturbation is
permitted. That would be an interested show but I doubt if even Fox is going
to go there. Not much variety in food though.
