Changing subject....Now.

If you could take one personality trait and remove it from the entire female gender, thus erasing it for all time from all women, what would it be?

My vote goes to passive/aggressive behavior. I would just like to stop having to guess when and to what extent she is pissed off.

Lack of libido.

Just remove the PMS. Then you get rid of most of the logic problems, libido issues and the passive/aggressive behavior.
I'd also vote for introducing a "driving gene"....

Well, if we're introducing genes, how about the "insatiable lust for and constant desire to please big fat hairy white guys" gene?

No, man, that's the point. My wife would only live to see me happy, so she would find nothing wrong with the multitudes beating a path to my door.

Good call. I could probably be persuaded to part with 2,000 yen to see "Animals Eat Rope", too.

i would gladly pay for a bovine yak video game. i would buy it second hand tho, as i imagine it would largely consist of grazing.
How do I get out of this chickenshit outfit?

Nerf makes automatic weapons. WTF?

Guess you have to indoctrinate them while they're young, eh? Jesus Christ! Aside from its bright colors, it looks pretty damn close to the real thing. Modular design, tactical rail, scopes, riot shield..RIP Nerf football. :bird:
