Ever wonder what happened to Erin Esurance? Well, quite literally....Rule 34 happened. It would seem that in mid-2010 Esurance began to survey the market and discovered that she was becoming somewhat unpopular with the 18 to 34 crowd. Not quite on the same level as Microsoft's "Clippy", but pretty damned close. Additionally, the company took notice of the fact that just about every Google search yielded some type of porn version of her. Most companies look the other way when their mascot becomes Rule34'd, some even embrace it, because they know full-well that it actually serves as a hush-hush form of advertisement. Esurance however, outright killed her off and gave us vanilla flavored "techies and feelies" instead.
Robots, not notable for their ability to recognized the subtleties of human language. Take the double entendre for example....I don't know about the futuristic utopian society that is The Jetsons, but telling your robot housemaid "I feel kinda dirty" in the near future might yield some unintended consequences.
As of 9/6/14, posted on wwoec forum's Introductions and Departures thread: If the forum admin / moderators would be so kind as to add me to the forum's Do Not Post list, it would be greatly appreciated. This will be my last post on wwoec. Regards, Phillipthe2
If someone would inform me when/if they have indeed done so, it would be greatly appreciated.
Just saw Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Ehhh, I dunno...it kinda lost something that the first movie seemed to capture. That dark, gritty feel...replaced by a little too much "color". Still though, great movie...and inspired me to do a little something.
