It’s Friday so it’s time for the Dick’s Details segment of the current podcast.
Dick’s Details…a bunch of totally un-important stuff for you to stuff in one ear, so you can squeeze the important stuff that’s got your escape key stuck, and you can just scroll down to enter any free app marked comfortable. The next election yelling and finger pointing is now going on. Do you remember just a few years ago, Elle magazine selected John Edwards as the sexiest man in politics. Which of course…is why John Edwards is no longer in politics. If the answer is 12, what is the question? I’ll tell you in a minute. Back to politics, the word candidate is from the Latin word candidates which means “clad in white.” That’s especially true in some of our more outrageously gerrymandered districts. And an estimated 1.8 million dead Americans are registered to vote. Big Louie says, “Unfortunately lots more living Americans…aren’t…registered to vote. Enough politics. If the answer is 12, the question is, “What is meant by the expression six of one and a half dozen of the other.” That’s enough to give you the algorithm and blues. Dick’s Details. They take your mind off your mind.

I’ve had reports of download problems with the podcasts on some newer gadgets. Our tech guys tell me everything will be cleared up over the weekend. Meantime, if you still have an older gadget, you may get a kick out of the current podcast. It’s about “Ms. Virtual Companion,” and she’s exactly what you think she is. I had lots of emails about it ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) and one of the funniest said, “Oh no. What if one night she said, “Not tonight dear, I’m having my download.”

Quick program note: If you like this blog and/or the podcasts please tell some friends. That’s a good way to make more friends, and I’d appreciate it. Thanks. In the good old days…before smart phones, people were always talking about problems between men and women. With the possibility of that discussion about to change to problems among men, women, and the “Virtual Companions” I told you about in the current podcast, I’ve got to open my mouth and insert my left foot about the original problem. For me, and a lot of Louie Louie Lads I know, men and women are different because we’re supposed to be different so we can help each other enjoy our lives. But here’s where I’m going to hear some boos. I don’t like seeing women become warriors. There is a time and place for killing I guess, and I’m not a totally non-violent guy. But I don’t like violence any more…especially around women and children. And I understand that’s such an outmoded attitude that there are laws against it. Women who want to go to war are entitled to do so. Fair enough. I just don’t like it. I don’t see that as an advancement for civilization. I’ve always been glad that women are different from men…gentler, kinder, more merciful, more moral and a hell of a lot nicer to look at. And I’ve always been ready to do whatever I can, including putting my life on the line if necessary to protect that difference…and the women who make that difference in my life.

Seriously…as I’ve been telling you in the podcasts, there are legit reports that Pimple People Millennials are having much less sex than Boomers. Could that be because they’re just losing interest or are they afraid of getting their piercings permanently and painfully locked together? Or is it that there’s no smart phone app for it yet? If that’s the case, you might like to know that computer guys are working on exactly that. When they’re done, you will have a body suit that’s hooked up to somebody else’s body suit via wi-fi, and electrical stimulation will go directly to the steamy parts of both your brains. In fact, there is a Japanese company that’s going one step further. They’re building a sex robot they call a “Virtual Companion.” It doesn’t need two people on a wi-fi connections because it’s essentially a high tech non-inflatable woman that comes with all the usual physical parts plus a specially designed artificial intelligence computer that supposedly will see to it that those physical parts are used just the way you like them. I assume it can also be programmed to provide a masculine “Virtual Companion.”

This week’s podcast is about the possible trend toward people losing interest in sex. As Big Louie the star of my book Staying Happy Healthy And Hot always says, “If God didn’t want us to have sex, why did He give teenagers cars with back seats?” As I told you in the last podcast, at my age I sometimes lose my sex drive…that happens occasionally three or four times a night. But so far, every time my Lady Wonder Wench shows up wearing just her two piece…that’s her bedroom slippers, I get that good old sex drive back right away…in high gear. Big Louie also says, “If you still have any moving parts left, for cryin’ out loud move em.” I do, and I move them as frequently as possible with her. I do not plan on de-gendering my life, or hers. Ever.

I am a typical Louie Louie Generation lad. That means in dog years I am dead. As I mentioned in today’s podcast, I am young at heart, but somewhat older in other places. In short, some of the butter has slipped off my pancakes. And I guess I must be living proof that evolution can go backwards… because when I saw a comment from Broadway star Lea DeLaria in this week’s New York Magazine I immediately stopped stirring my coffee with my car keys, I quickly put the coffee cup down on the table next to my big, comfortable, manly, black leather poppa chair, and I stood up so fast that I felt weightless for a moment… and said something that sounded like Gezorninplatz. The comment was, and I quote, “Gender is so passé.” Folks…no it’s not. At least not for me.

It’s another Dick’s Details Friday…taken from the current podcast.
Dick’s Details…a bunch of totally un-important stuff for you to stuff into one ear so you can squeeze the important stuff that’s crunching your chromosomes out your other ear, and you can feel like a teenager for a few minutes. In 2003 a 2,300 year old mummy with what appears to be a Mohawk was discovered in Ireland. What do you know? Pre-historic Punk. If the answer is “The Salt Talks” what is the question? The smart guys at the zoos tell us that chimps and gorillas have been known to proposition their human trainers. “Hey sweetheart…how would you like to wear a fur coat like mine…for a few minutes?” Statisticians tell us that 97% of women kiss with their eyes closed. Only 37% of men do. Makes sense. We’re looking at someone a lot prettier than they are. And…if the answer is “The Salt Talks” the question is “What happens when you have dinner with a ventriloquist?” Should have thrown that one over my right shoulder. Dick’s Details…they take your mind off your mind.
Hey a quick program note…if you like this podcast would you please tell a friend. That’s a good way to make more friends, and I’d appreciate it.

Interesting answers to the question in this week’s podcast…would you like to live forever. So far, 73% of you said no. So my question to you is, “When do you want to die?”
May 13th, 2015
Do you want to live forever? As I’ve been telling you in the current podcast, there is serious scientific work being done right now that makes it a possibility. Please either add a comment to this blog, or send me an email – Dick@DickSummer.com. Do you want to live forever?
