Contest time!

My living room is being turned "trip friendly". It's already a good ways there, but it needs more. So the contest is, how can I make my living room more trip friendly?

So far we have:
  • Candles. Many candles (though it's been a tad bit warm for candles, the past couple days.
  • Black lights. Not only do we have several black lights in the room, one of the fixutes is one of the brightest fixtures you can get on the market.
  • UV reactive strings, making it look like we have red and green lasers all over the "sky".
  • UV reactive art and toys.
  • Convex mirrors.
  • Several monitors with cool sound controlled graphics playing.
  • Data projector, also displaying sound controlled graphics, but at trippy angles on the walls, floor, or ceilling.
  • Oil wheel projector.
  • Disco ball, with pin spot lamp, and colored gels (currently red).
  • A good sound system.
  • Eye candy DVD's for the TV.

So, that's the contest. What is needed to improve the natural trip quality of my living room?

An old country doctor went way out to the boondocks to deliver a baby. It was so far out, there was no electricity.

When the doctor arrived, no one was home except for the laboring mother and her 5-year-old child. The doctor instructed the child to hold a lantern high so he could see, while he helped the woman deliver the baby. The child did so.

The mother pushed and after a little while, the doctor lifted the newborn baby by the feet and spanked him on the bottom to get him to take his first breath.

The doctor then asked the 5-year-old what he thought of the new baby.

"He shouldn't have crawled in there in the first place. Spank him again," the 5-year-old said.

An Amish boy and his father were visiting a mall. They were amazed by almost everything they saw, but especially by two shiny, silver walls that could move apart and then slide back together again. The boy asked, "What is this, Father?" The father (never having seen an elevator) responded "Son, I have never seen anything like this in my life, I don't know what it is." While the boy and his father were watching with amazement, a fat old lady in a wheel chair rolled up to the moving walls and pressed a button. The walls opened and the lady rolled between them into a small room. The walls closed and the boy and his father watched the small circular numbers above the walls light up sequentially. They continued to watch until it reached the last number and then the numbers began to light in the reverse order. Finally the walls opened! They opened up again and a gorgeous, voluptuous 24 year old blonde woman stepped out.

The father, not taking his eyes off the young woman, said quietly to his son ... "Go get your mother".

This whole "guys vs girls" trip I'm on started last Wednesday. Amber and I were in the car, and on NPR there were having a discussion about all girls colleges. One of the experts commented that men and women learn differently. Men, when they read a text book just memorize it, and women tend to look deeper and ask why what is in the book is true. Arguably the male method is faster, but the female method is better. It also requires different teaching styles to support, and most school cater to the male style of learning, leaving many women out in the cold.

I'm seeing many examples of this. Take this for example:

Boys just like to find out how, and do it. And girls like to discuss it, and figure out what works best.

And more for those into "self improvement".

Anyway, I'm off to tear down more stereo types, and replace them with ones of my own creation. Like, "If a woman finds me attractive, she must be cool." Damn it's fun replacing stereo types with ones of my own design. ;)
