    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.

    I have a crush for any type of beauty that is unique.
    Women I find attractive include Cate Blanchett and Meryl Streep (Cate's being at the top of the list). Can't stand the cloned blonde type that you see everywhere and can't really tell the difference between each other.

    Can't stand women that look like prostitutes either (this include such names as Kim Basinger, Madonna, Sharon Stone and pretty much all of the on-their-glorious-20s latin pop music stars).

    Of the men, I wouldn't mind some of the genes of Sean Penn, Johnny Depp or Jim Morrison.

    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    The Washington Post this morning has a "hottest heads of state" article. First prize is Yulia Tymoshenko the prime minister of the Ukraine. Number two is some dude named Jens Stoltenberg, the PM of Norway. Obama was #15.

    Hmm. Yes. She is absolutely fabulous!

    Man! This is blasphemy, sacrilege! Kim Basinger was my sex idol back in high school. "My Stepmother Is an Alien" - can you pick someone better suited for that role? Next time you go to brothel down there in Portugal - not implying that you do go, just if you ever do, please take me with you. I'll pay any price to spend an hour with Kim Basinger even now when she's almost sixty.

    And if I may answer original question, Clint Eastwood is great, Madonna became demigoddess after the Ray of Light album, Carmack is cool, Linus is much more than I ever thought - this book is great: Just for Fun: The Story of an Accidental Revolutionary

    Steve Jobs. The guy is incredible. Truly incredible. Bill Gates was the first who realized that software is everything and hardware is nothing, but than he lost himself in those billions I suppose. That's why I admire Jobs more than Gates today.

    And I'm sure all of the people I mentioned above would have been more than honored if Kim Basinger came to their Christmas party.

    Ah yes, one of our more attractive members

    I'm more into Rachel Hannah Weisz and Helena Bonham Carter, separated at birth? My fantasy is to watch them debate the merits of cinema under the third reich while they make out in a vat of pudding.

    I'd say Obama has a fairly striking presence, he might be a good choice.

    Women? That girl on Spiderman - what's her name, Kirsten Dunst? Or maybe Claudia Schiffer. I don't know, a lot of beautiful women out there...

    Akward humor! Or rather, so long as there is plenty of cashmere, no duct tape is required.

    Silk is the preferred material for ropes, it doesn't leave marks. Duct tape is generally preferable if the subject is a biter, screamer, or spitter.

    The fact you put it in all caps doesn't stop her from looking like a prostitute.

    Here (and for your benefit):
    What kind of people are Members of Mensa?
    There is simply no one prevailing characteristic of Mensa members other than high IQ. There are Mensans for whom Mensa provides a sense of family, and others for whom it is a casual social activity. There have been many marriages made in Mensa, but for many people, it is simply a stimulating opportunity for the mind. Most Mensans have a good sense of humor, and they like to talk. And, usually, they have a lot to say.
    Mensans range in age from 4 to 94, but most are between 20 and 60. In education they range from preschoolers to high school dropouts to people with multiple doctorates. There are Mensans on welfare and Mensans who are millionaires. As far as occupations, the range is staggering. Mensa has professors and truck drivers, scientists and firefighters, computer programmers and farmers, artists, military people, musicians, laborers, police officers, glassblowers--the diverse list goes on and on. There are famous Mensans and prize-winning Mensans, but there are many whose names you wouldn't know.
    And I didn't even call her a prostitute. But had I done that, it's clear it wouldn't make a difference were she a member of Mensa or not. http://www.google.pt/search?q=sharon+stone
