Bender should do well. After all, how many people want to "go on a bender"?
I've seen RealDolls, and that word clearly doesn't mean what you think it means. Either that, or you've never actually met a woman.
Same reason the advertising industry relies heavily on attractive females: it overrides some higher function of the male brain.

...because in my experience 80-90% of the women on the paid site were working, self-sufficient adults...
So... that's like, what, eight or nine women?
Or are you counting law enforcement trolls, male impostors, and corporate shills, too? That'd probably get you up to 40% or so of these site's supposedly "female" accounts, the rest being bots pretending to be women, which don't count as "working, self-sufficient adults."
I'm truly glad you met someone you found worthwhile, but in the vast majority of situations, these sites are not good hunting grounds for an actual reasonable partner.
The old standbys are still by far the best, assuming one can pull their head out of their phone or laptop or ipad long enough to actually look around them and actually speak to people. Laundromats, grocery stores, libraries, classes of various types, museums, music stores (what few are left.) You know, places where reasonable, normal people tend to go and can be engaged in the creaky old technique of face-to-face, physically-present conversation. Where you can smell each other, sense each others body language, see how the other person moves, how they do at/with eye contact, make physical contact, engage in courting and other courteous behaviors...
I truly think the current crop of young people have gone and shot themselves in the foot with their overwhelmingly present "everything is online all the time" mentality. Not that you can't find someone online, of course you can, but the real world is still a much better place to try. If, of course, you have at least basic social skills and at least a few desirable characteristics. If not, then things haven't changed one whit -- you're screwed, and not in the "OMG I scored" way. Online won't help such a situation either.
How many people do you think read all of the T&Cs? How many people do you know who have read the Facebook T&Cs, for example (I know two, but I don't know anyone who has both read them and agreed to them)?
I read them and didn't agree with them, hence have zero facebook presence. Does that count?
Windows 7 and 8 are now just as intrusive as 10
Only if you don't RTFA (or some other source of info) and remove/block the updates.
For some reason I get an email every time you post
Only when I post a journal entry, I hope
I still have a F-91W. Who wears watches, though?
Desktop is one thing mobile is another. Without Apple it is DOA.
Yes. I have not been to a public fireworks display without police being there.
Of course it is really silly to compare Burning man with a 4th of July event. I have never been to a 4th of July event were the use of illegal drugs is very public and well known.
It also overlooks the fact that high end CPUs and GPUs all have power scaling. Your i7 and three overclocked GTX980s are not pulling anything like max power when you are posting on slashdot or watching netflix.
After any salary raise, you will have less money at the end of the month than you did before.
