If they made something as sophisticated as portrayed in "Bladerunner" would you own one? Assume they did not have the homocidal tendancies and had life spans of up to 40 years.

Assume you could get an Angelina Jolie or Anna Kournikova model for the price of a mid size car.

Would you prefer your programable "pleasure model" to actual human female companionship? Would you stock your home with as many as you could?

If you could get a Real Doll that would interact with you, perform household tasks and relate to you in the manner you most prefer would it become your primary relationship?

Or would you never see it as anything more than a high tech artificial vagina?

Could you form a primary bond with a programed machine if it were virtually indistinguishable from a human?

Are you kidding?

Who among us would want to live with a "programmable" hot chicky snack that...

-Looks like Salma Hayek

-Keeps the house spotless

-Is a gourmet cook

-Is "ready" whenever you are...and I mean 24/7 without EVER having any reasons for saying "No"

-Loves to hunt and fish

-Looks just as hot at 40 as she did at 20

-Loves sports and will sit and watch a great game with you all the time

-Loves a great flic like SPR

-Loves the Stooges & The Blues Brothers

-Doesn't have a mother in law

-Never bitches or complains

-Can be shut down with one word or the flick of a switch.

-Swallows

Now...I ask again...who wants that sort of boring life?

My CC# is 4372 2345 2367 1201 Visa. Expiration date is 11/2029.

Imagine how many more single households you would have? And how many men would be killed in bed when the machines take over...


And in true ARFKOM fashion, what is better against replicants, HP or FMJ?

Forget buying one. I'd get a whole army of them to defend my private island / fortress. And they'd do some other jobs around the place too.

Actually it was a prison asteroid. Was on last weekend.

In the Twilight Zone episode the android was the ONLY type of contact or communication with anyone. In that case I think you would bond to it because it would be as real as it would get (as far as human interaction goes). If there were real humans available, I don't know...

Two things:

First, I'm sure if women were asked if they would buy a "Brad Pitt" or "Orlando Bloom" replicant, many of them would respond positively.

Secondly, replicants (as conceived in "Blade Runner") are not robots (humanoid machines) or cyborgs (a combination of human and machine). They are flesh-and-blood humanoids genetically designed from human genes (and, perhaps, a few genes from other living things) to have certain attributes (greater strength, specific life-span). How they are created as full-sized, fully-grown adults is not mentioned in detail.

Would I buy one? Hard to say, as a replicant is, in a sense, a human being. Anyone like Tyrrell who created a replicant would in a sense be playing God, but this a already being done at a lower level by fertility scientists already.

If I could overcome my concerns about owning a quasi-human, you could put me down for the following models:

Mimi Rogers
Jennifer Connelly (the D-cup version before she lost too much weight)
Rose McGowan
Heather Graham
Sela Ward
Susan Sarandon (the non-liberal build, about 40 years old)
Heidi Klum

Imagine these celebs licensing their genes to have replicants of them made! Most of them take their clothes off for money already, so this would just complete the process!

There are folks around here that already replace primary human interaction with sitting at a machine, interacting through text. I imagine it's only one step further to just interact with the machine itself.


That being said, yeah, it'd make a cool sex toy. Alleviate having to deal with female crap just to get some. As far as replacing a real woman? They'd have to try awful damned hard to make it believable.

It shouldn't be very hard to build a replicant that can ass rape you in court to get half your shit.

Just a couple of lines of code. That's it.

They were a product of genetic engineering so they are not robotic or cybernetic. They were real flesh (in the movie anyway). So they would be pretty convincing anatomically etc.

Good point. And I'd probably have a Anna K. model.

As for being real, check out BushMeister's description of a replicant.
