Love among the graduate students

Graduate students are known for two things: dating each other and dating undergrads. The former causes a little mockery, but everyone does it (to come clean, that's how my girlfriend and I met). The latter causes more mockery, especially if the undergrad is under 21 and needs a fake ID to get into a bar. There is more mockery still if the graduate student served as a teaching assistant (TA) for one of the undergrad's courses. The general rule of thumb is (1) if you get together after the grades are turned in, it is not illegal; and (2) just because it ain't illegal don't make it right.

At any rate, I went to a wedding last weekend between two grad students in my department. They of course invited a bunch of their friends, many of whom were in said department. By an odd coincidence, one undergrad girl took a course a year ago with three TAs, and now found herself going to the wedding of two of the TAs as the date of the third TA. And we don't even have a small department.

Too dangerous at MIT - chances are you'd end up fucking a robot.

I accidentally fucked a robot once. His name was bill. I guess he was more of a cyborg though because he looked like a person....

Actually, he never offered proof that he was a robot. Like he didn't have super strength or anything...

For that matter, is premature ejaculation something that robots do? Maybe it's normal for robots that were designed to look like 45 year old males with thinning hair.

What the hell happened over here.

I don't know Nick, I just don't know anymore.

speaking of robots. why is it, that every robot is remotely controlled by men in lab coats? such as this robot.

it completely removes the intimacy that i might want to preserve when wooing a robot to my "casbah" with promises of motor oil and a full-body WD-40 rub?

um...i'm referring to fembots of course...

a dead giveaway jiggs is when they make those creepy robot noises during foreplay.

Doesn't count if you're dating the bartender.
