    why can't they invent a machine to wash our clothes and our dishes and cook our food?

        I will be making a male model too. Rosie will do the cooking and cleaning b/c she's a female robot and that's all females can do. And Channing will take care of the male robot duties. Now all I need is a few billion dollars and I'll be on my way.

          Have you seen the dog video on Facebook? The dog picks up everything in the house, brings shoes to its owner, closes cupboard doors, and almost everything. Then all you need is someone to wash the dishes. It was a Jack Russell terrier.

        Yeah, that was kinda the joke, but nobody ever gets my jokes... however we DO need someone to put the stuff in the machines... or if the machines themselves ... kinda ate the stuff, then spit it back out clean.

                You had just posted a very long thread post with my name attached as your example. You had said I was attracted to you, but that you had rejected me... it was a lengthy post with my name used well over a dozen times... then you followed me to a non-religious thread and continued addressing me... it seemed to me like an appropriate joke under the circumstances... What I would say is personal, is your desire to create trouble, A Troubled Man. Maybe you could refocus on your purpose here... unless creating trouble is your purpose here.

    What I want to know, is if they can send a man to the moon, why can't men find anything??  I am always getting questions from my hubby.  Where are his socks, where is his wallet, phone, etc, etc, etc... How did they manage to make it to the moon when they can't even manage to locate their own socks?

    1. LeanMan profile image88
      LeanManposted 4 years agoin reply to this

      It was not a woman that put the moon there, it is in an obvious place, where it should be so us men know exactly where it is!

      Socks however could have been put anywhere by you girls along with the tools that we left out scattered across the floor for when we needed them next time.. We knew exactly where we left them and if you girls did not tidy them away we would be able to lay our hands on them immediately.

      My wife is always tidying away my computer stuff, she will put an external drive in one drawer and the cable in a box on a shelf in a different room and then forget that she ever laid her hands on them. It will then take a full day of searching and lost tempers to find both parts that were otherwise located on MY DESK in MY OFFICE not bothering anyone!
