    To lay it all out:
    It was a joke, obviously(or, I'd hope). You said your bit about intelligence, and what not, so I made a silly comment, in the hopes of you registering the fact that I was complimenting your intelligence.
    The world is waiting. I must leave you now.

    Ah, I see. As you can probably imagine, I'm not quite as sharp with communication as with programming.

    Which is good, lest your wit become so incisive that those nearest you would be permanently impaled thereon.

    No, in fact, programmers and other such technical people are often more attractive to the opposite sex due to their intelligence (yes, I'm generalizing).
    uhm, is the rest of the female population aware of this fact ? They seem to hide their attraction pretty well

    Is it true that programmers never get laid?
    Boolean logic: No. I know at least one programmer who got laid at least once, so it's false.

    On the other hand, i never had a woman dig my big grey computing machine so much she wanted to get it on immediatly. Awrh, nvoigt, your code made me so hot... and this for loop with the if-clause oooooh yeah, I want more... doesn't seem to happen. What a pity


    Edit:
    Any female who wants to prove the poll is wrong can call me any time

    From the Link in my Sig.:
    Sex
    The Germans are as fond of sex as everyone else and remarkably tolerant of other people's foibles and peculiarities. There is great openness about sex - in-depth discussions about its problematic nature are inevitable wherever you go and any sign of embarrassment will be taken as a symptom of psychological hang-ups.
    Seduction techniques leave something to be desired, and many Germans seem to rely on the age old method of boring the pants off you.
    Once under way, expect full-blooded and vocal expressions of pleasure and delight (or disappointment), and don't be taken aback by frank comparisons of technique, duration, etc.
    The commercial face of sex is coarse, vulgar and occasionally very strange indeed. For details, see Hamburg's Reeperbahn. In general, licensed premises and persons receive routine health inspections thus reducing the risk of contracting any unpleasant, surprises (but only slightly).
    However, if you like your sex to be a mysterious smoldering ecstasy, choose the French. To the Germans it is more like an invigorating work-out in the gym or, in extreme cases, minor surgery.

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    I've had sex.

    Sex is just warm masturbation with consequences.

    Cool

    If you think sex is just "warm masturbation" then your partner must not be very good at it...
    Don't try so hard. Just let it happen.

    How could programers not get laid, I mean women love it when we talk about linked lists, polymorphism, and referenced pointers to large arrays right?

    I believe it is important for programmers to get laid as often as possible. This way we can breed a very closed yet intelligent species and take over the world. Once we have taken over the world we can then take over the universe. This means that if you are extremely intelligent you must only breed with other extremely intelligent programmers. This means Prelude will never get laid because no one even comes close in terms of intelligence.

    EDIT:
    This also means I will never get laid because I am on the other end of the spectrum.
