      I keep waiting for a brothel to open up a 'superstore' so that these guys can pick up a 6-pack of beer, some bread, milk and cheese along with 30 minutes of 'service'. I mean, treating sex the ways these guys do it's amusing they don't see the connection between their feelings of ineptitude and women not being satisfied. I don't have much hope for this ever changing since both sides of the equation collude to ensure its perpetuation.

      • The computer guy was just as pathetic, imprisoned and victimised by a lifetime of cultural stereotyping as many geeks are but claim otherwise since they have the lie of 'digital enlightenment' to puff up their chest.

        I know that's one of your (many!) favourite theories: all male geeks are disfonctional, socially impaired, loners who can't get laid despite all their pathetic efforts.

          My experience is that the Perl people are quite atypical. Most other kinds of programmers I've interacted with are much more likely to be like something out of Confederacy of Dunces.

          You let 'em write a dozen lines of COBOL and they think they're the Messiah. Stand in awe of their searing Usenet rants! Worship their infantile idea of debate! (Namely: "You have opinions, I have facts" and, when in doubt, repeat it louder this time) Admire their firm conviction that their way is the only way! Listen to their cooing about how you've GOT to read Cryptonomicon! Stay awake as they harangue you uselessly about software patents!
