I’m wondering if I should just post a link to this story and offer “sigh” or something similar as a comment and leave it as that. If this was teh twitterz, then that might be the best thing to do. But it’s not. Twitter, I mean. It still might be the best thing to do.
But, I’m well past that point, so here goes with the long version.
Some guy in Florida wants to marry his computer. Really.
Okay, maybe not really. It’s kinda hard to tell.
Normally — which loses more and more meaning every day since nothing seems to be normal any more — I’d think this was satire. And, it might be. But, these days, you never can tell.
Chris Sevier did file a lawsuit saying he wanted to marry his computer. But, whether or not it’s a real thing or if he’s just using a lawsuit to try to make a point … well, I’m not sure.
He says his computer is so full of porn that he enjoys using it as part of his sex life.
“Over time, I began preferring sex with my computer over sex with real women,” he told a court in Florida.
That’s another thing I’m not sure about. That he had sex with real women. Maybe he did. But, from the looks of things, it may have been proceeded with his using the phrase, “It puts the lotion on its skin.”
Anyway, it could be that he’s taking a round-about way to make a point against gay marriage. He’d be better served by some other method of displaying his opposition.
Then, again, maybe he really does want to marry his MacBook Pro.
If he does, though, what will happen if he’s seduced by a slimmer, trimmer MacBook Air? Who will take care of the discarded MacBook Pro? And, what of the children? Maybe they’ve had some little iPads or iPods. Who gets custody?
It’s a slippery slope. Probably from all the lube.
