#149 Non-seduction Techniques

#149 Non-seduction Techniques

Wooo comic comic comic for you, and a couple of hours early too!

It has been a rough couple of days. Nasty cold, bad sore throat, but I can’t afford to skip teaching because I already have to miss too many days this semester (wedding and conference, etc). So I just have to tough it out, and do my best to keep my distance from students. Here’s hoping I feel a bit better by the morning.

Discussion (13)¬

    What woman doesn’t enjoy a good slice of cheese?

  2. Abeo says:

    Totally unfair. If a geeky girl with lasers came up to me, insulted me, and gave me a weird gift, I would be thoroughly seduced.

    Girls is crazy.

  3. Canuovea says:

    Define “weird” though I suppose that rules out “original.”

    The picture for “lasers” is misleading, you don’t have to actually shoot the woman when it comes to lasers, after all shooting people isn’t the only thing done with lasers. I’m sure some women would be impressed by a laser show, or lasers to music, or shooting stuff with lasers (if you could pull off being a futuristic John Wayne… with lasers, and maybe not so ugly) that actually could work.

    Though we can go one from there… suppose the woman also is a Geek (or speaks Klingon)? Then they might be impressed. Alternatively you could get lucky with the weird gifts part too (and I mean lucky, as in you would need luck)… maybe she has a Swiss cheese fetish? As for insults… who knows? I could probably come up with some kind of situation…

    PS is that really how you say “I love you baby.” In Klingon? I wouldn’t know… But am now curious…

    PSS Back to symbolic logic homework…

    Canuvea, I don’t think Klingon has a word for love, and if it did it’s only proper tense would involve violence.

    Also shooting someone with lasers may not be the only thing, but it is the coolest thing!

  6. chaospet says:

    Abeo: Same here

    Canuovea: I think it is, at least according to this.

    Legion: Exactly!

  7. Emil says:

    PS means postscript. PSS would mean postscriptscript. Nonsense. It’s PPS. Postpostscript.

    Go back to symbolic logic. Write here if you need help. I could probably help you. As long as I don’t have to prove the validity of predicate logic arguments, I can’t do that.

  8. Canuovea says:

    Klingons aren’t very clingy then are they?

    Oops. See things like this happen when I am tired. PSS, or even better accidentally trying to prove the wrong conclusion for a set of symbolic logic things… grr. Despite that I think everything turned out rather well… except I had a midterm to study for (which I didn’t because I wanted sleep at 2am). Though I think that may have turned out alright, didn’t require much thinking. Plato this, noble lie that, cave somewhere in there too…

    Hmm, perhaps something to add to the list of non-seduction techniques: Stupid complaints.

  9. Quinian says:

    Oooh, I swooned for #1. That’s a sexy motherf*cker.
    [for the sake of the commenters: I *am* of the female species.]

  10. Canuovea says:

    It’s odd. I did some reading (not like I had anything else to do) and found that according to some acting like a jerk, but being kind of “funny” about it, works. Example:

    Guy walks up to girl at mall. Holds up two shirts.

    Guy: Which one do you think would be more attractive on me at a party?
    Woman: The green one.
    Guy: Oh good, I’ll make sure not to wear that one. Need to keep the crazies away. (Or something like that, implying she is crazy)

    Apparently it worked. Yes, that’s right, this guy walked up to a random woman in the mall trying to get hooked up. Instead of saying something nice he acts like a witty jerk. It works. Why does it work? I don’t know, and to be honest my reaction was: “WTF? Why?” I know if a girl did that to me I’d probably walk away scratching my head in confusion.

    So yes, apparently number 1 works. Depending on how the insults are used I suppose. Then again the guy who wrote the article gave it a tone that was distinctly pissing me off. Jealousy? Maybe. Righteous indignation? Maybe that too.

  11. LEGION says:

    As the male of the species, I can say a I would find a girl shooting lasers at be attractive, but I would have to shoot back and see how she held up in a firefight.

  12. chaospet says:

    Canuovea: Oh I see, they have to be *witty* insults. No wonder that approach never worked for me.

  13. Cratar says:

    This is some extraordinarily valuable advice. Thank you.
