Comment An emotion reader- just for guys (Score 1) 76

I see a great market in helping guys understand women. The computer could watch her face and text him, "She's bored. Enough football talk." "She's getting upset. Stop talking about her mother." "Uh-oh. She didn't REALLY want to know if she looks fat." Could revolutionize relationships. Pam

True enough. I have to admit that "crotchspawn" is not a word one generally hears in day-to-day conversation. I'll further admit that its new to me. So on that point, I'll concede mjwx has enlarged, if not improved, my vocabulary. I missed where I defended anything. Perhaps I didn't read carefully? ;0) Pam

Actually I think it's a great move. Probably isn't going to attract anyone who wants a whole season of House, but as a mom, I've been stuck countless time in traffic, on a check-out line, or at the doctor's office with a bored cranky kid. At those times I'd gladly shell out a buck for an episode of something- ANYTHING- that will keep Junior entertained and quiet. They are probably also banking, quite literally, on the crowd that hasn't quite figured out that spending one dollar twenty times costs MORE than shelling out ten bucks. Pam

They are watching the WRONG movies. It was used very recently in a made-for-TV movie "The Wizards of Waverly Place", which was written, apparently, by a couple of college guys with a case or two of beer and the complete viewing library of 'The Brady Bunch" AND "Gilligan's Island." My kids loved it. I was half-hoping for a special guest appearance from Vincent Price. Alas, I was disappointed. Pam
