zwarte piet Re:Sex bots (306 comments)

As long as there are states that outlaw oral sex with your own partner we can't expect any sensible legislation on more daring creations like sex bots for peado's for example. And then there is the question if a crime without a victim should be procecuted. Some would argue that doing a child shaped object, programmed to make all the right moves and noises, is a crime aginst morality and/or would make it psychologically easier for the owner to actually molest a child.

zwarte piet Re:Yeah, right... (458 comments)

Also referred to as 'Dutch Guyana', it's not exactly a high profile country, but one colorful mess of a city callled Paramaribo, surrounded by tropical jungle on one side and the Atlantic on the other. They talk an extra juicy variant of Dutch and something the locals call "negro english" (which sounds nothing like english).
