Caution~Bizarre

If you have viewed the movie Lars and the Real Girl, this YouTube link will not be as strange/bizarre/perverted/unusual/ OT as to those of you that have seen the movie. Supposedly, the company that makes these "dolls" (Bianca in the movie) sells them for about $6k per. There are a couple of YouTube parts if you can take it, but these are not your normal run of the mill guys that seem to prefer a latex doll to a real gal.

Not porn, just strange.

Hey, I told you it was OT.

Mickey, I just have to ask...where the heck did you find that?
Yikes! I kept thinking about that horrible story of the guy in PA who killed those women at the gym when I heard these guys talking.
Easily the most bizarre thing I've seen in a long time.

I think as long as an adult refers to a doll as an "it", there's a creep factor of a 2 on a scale from 1 to 10 for me. But calling the doll her/him....definitely a 10.

If I were that first guy's (in the video) parents, I would be very frightened to live under the same roof. Get that guy evaluated, pronto. <shudder>

So...if you cross a human and a doll, do you get a puppet?

Good Q. This is not my normal Internet activity, I can assure you. I watched Lars and the Real Girl on Showtime (pretty good flick actually) recently and the "costar" was one of these dolls. All of this was news to me, but I was curious. I looked up the movie on imdb and read this ~
Quote:
The "Real Doll" was featured on "The Graham Norton Effect" (2004). The doll was given to the show and was stated as costing $6,000. She arrived in the same kind of crate that is shown in the movie.
...google did the rest.

The doll doesn't creep me out. HE creeps me out. Lives with his parents. Has a painted fingernail. Oh, yeah...he's normal. Not.
If my son did this....OMG! would I not be happy.

I think it's sort of a natural progression in society. While more technology can bring people from far distances closer together, it also tends to isolate people that are close together.

Once these real dolls transition into becoming robotic with natural movements and use high tech processors to control speech and simulate emotions, then you'll see a lot more of this becoming mainstream.

Then of course full fledged androids will take over the world and human beings become worthless mortals that are expensive to keep alive.

Um...I think it already happened where I used to w*rk.
When management said "Jump", the "androids" achieved the proper altitude above ground level at record speed.
Those of us who continued to use our brains and think were quickly pushed aside.

I do recommend the movie Lars and the Real Girl. Has a nice touch of the northern bleakness and how people in a small town stand up for their own.

I just recalled a recent movie, "Frozen River", and an older movie "A Simple Plan" with many scenes of that bleakness. Of course, there was "Fargo".

Didn't know of "Lars and the Real Girl" until now.
