Well, I imagine you would; if taking 30 seconds on Google to fact check is too much to ask I gather you'd look like a fool more often than not.

Judging by the number of people who were actually taken in by this (6 year old) article on this very board, it only confirms my pet peeve: people would rather be outraged and ignorant than be rational and fact check.

I still stand by the statement that if everything the world claims is an aphrodisiac really worked, then we'd all be walking around with perpetual boners humping everything that moves.

You know what's an aphrodisiac? Women. I always get aroused when I think about them in sexual context.

That sounds dangerous!  We should ban women.

Hmm...maybe we should ban men too.

Wouldn't that just leave Rosie O'Donnel?

Hm, I think you might be on to something.

For reference, see: The discussion that occurred about four pages ago.

This seems an effective strategy, in particular if the goal is to reduce the population size by inducing mass suicide after people try to think of her in a sexual context out of pure desperation and can't get the PTSD inducing images out of their minds.


In other news...

What about dickgirls?  They'd still be left too, right?  And what about transgendered folks?

I consider transgender people to be whatever sex they identify with, I don't think they are some "in-between" people forever. Of course you get gender-queer people, and they would probably be happy to not be considered part of our binary sex system.

I didn't fact check because I knew it would get on your nerves if I played gullible.

Seriously, I'm the type that usually double checks before I tell someone else. I'll dwell on the possibility of something like that actually existing before I research it to see if it is true or false. It wouldn't surprise me if there were people out there that would actually do something like that.

I don't know if this is real or not, but apparently dead baby soup is now a delicacy in China to improve virility.  http://www.thecontroversialfiles.net/2013/07/chinese-eat-baby-soup-for-sex.html

Ummm... yeah... if everything the world claims is an aphrodisiac really worked, then we'd all be walking around with perpetual boners humping everything that moves.

Don't believe everything you read, folks.

Ah, so instead of eating babies, it was actually a pretentious avant garde artíst.

In other words, worse.

And that's not even considering the "third gender" folks in so many Asian countries, like the ladyboys, hijra, kathoey...

After trying and failing at not including 'loser' in several variations of the title of the link to this news, I'm just going to link to it without comment.
