alright, i know its been a couple of days, but it was sitting in my outbox: what relevence does "being a caring, considerate person" have, exactly? and do you have some kind of problem with self-castration? if i could efficiently be free of my hardwiring, i would agree completly with elizier when he said "intelligence is all that matters". primative castration (what weve got today) is obviously not an option, but what i want is for my sexuality (all emotions, actually) to be a switch, naa, make that a slider bar, in my head. then i could castrate myself every time the little testosterone gauge in the bottom-left corner of my field of vision went to red, if i thought it was necessary... you seem to think thats somehow wrong. why?

and do "women" have a specific agenda that they intend to carry out? is this the same kind of unity attributed by some to the "gummint"? and is "the way its always been played" somehow a good thing? my "us-vs-them" meter is off the scale...

side note: wouldnt it kick ass to have the equivalent of the *nix "top" command constantly running just inside ones peripheral vision? and a blood chemistry monitor... arrrrrrrrr... o well; there probably not exactly new ideas...
