Everyone has their own personal high tech 'datapad' (or cellphones if you insist). Computers and other modern tech advancements, just create a greater emotional and communication disparity between human beings.
While I wait for something else to break, so I can be an effective drone, how long until the great masses are required to start taking 'empathy tests' to determine how insane and ineffectual most of us really are. How many of us are broken and hiding behind masks of routine? And this machine that will inevitably 'see into our soul', will it see inside us clearly...or darkly?

Why have men been taught to feel ashamed
of their desire, as if each were a criminal
out on parole, a desperado with a long record
of muggings, rapes, such conduct as excludes
each one from all but the worst company,
and never to be trusted, no never to be trusted?
Why must men pretend to be indifferent as if each
were a happy eunuch engaged in spiritual thoughts?

Liminality - it's what everyone is searching for. It's what drives people to sports games, church, giant stadium concerts and midnight showings of Twlight. It is a similar thing, the need to thrive on heightened communal experience. I'm pretty sure those of us who are outcasts have grown so used to the godless void of isolation that the feeling of communion is so foreign- it's discomforting. That or I just really felt like running over the bearded hobo standing in the street with Iowa Hawkeyes pajammas on the way home from work......

As far as sex is concerned I've experienced a paradigm shift in the late 20's from men to women being more sexually aggressive.
That biological clock starts ticking and the human animal feels a message from their DNA that sets their nethers a twitter. Or maybe it's not due to a biological change from the encroaching sexual peak. I dunno.
The laws of sexual dynamics teach me to stop trying to analyze the opposite sex, as it just leads to sorrow. Your common heterosexual male and female both want something that is either sexually and/or romantically easy. Easy in this context as defined as posing no difficulty and requiring little effort.
Compare: The biker that works part time at Flappy's Pancake House and moonlights at a tattoo parlor. He dreams of starting a by the numbers 4 piece metal band. The highlight of his day is watching tv, drinking PBR, and smoking weed.
A bleeding heart liberal arts major dreams of producing a one man musical about Big Foot, who's conflicted as he's forced to work as a claims manager for an insurance company during the day. They go home and read the same daily RSS fed blogs on their web browser, listen to what iTunes suggests for today and read the latest best seller on the NY Times best seller list.
Now what about the dyslexic and obsessive compulsive neo-nerd who dresses like a goth, has the eating habits of a vegan, reads womens' literature and is the Regional shipping Manager of pork products for HyVee Grocery stores. On his way home he spends an hour discussing life with the manager of his gas station who used to be an English professor at the community college. Hangs out with his cat conversing about the days events then invents a few cross word puzzles before he passes out on the floor of his kitchen.
Let's look at this from another point of view. Say you sit down to have a cup of coffee with a charming stranger in a cafe. Would you prefer having a droll laugh about what happened on NBC's sitcoms last night or a meta conversation about human behavior juxtaposed against the pertinence of coffee beans and the political disenfranchisement of certain 3rd world countries.
This isn't about intelligence. We live in an age of information and it's dissemination of culture and ideas is as common as the cellular phone in our pants pocket. Your average man and woman is content with comfort and endless similarities.
They are afraid to step out of that. They are afraid of improving or evolving themselves. To remove the gender association, a person (man or woman) will go with what meets their expectation. Their subconscious equates different to weird. Weird means they don't know what's going to happen next. That scares them.
People will take boring vanilla ice cream over placing everything on the line for the mystery flavor that might break their heart. That level of separation is the difference between true love and mutually assured destruction. Adventure and the pursuit of the mundane.
The difference between romantics and breeders.

Your result for The Which Biblical Villain Are You Test...
You scored 80% Pride, 73% Envy, 78% Ambition, and 60% Deceitfulness!
You are Satan, the consummate villain, and the ascendant figure in the unholy trinity. Throughout history you have been called The Serpent, The Accuser, The Devil, Lucifer, The Prince of the Power of the Air and The Dragon, among other things. Your "compatriots" in the unholy trinity, the Antichrist and the False Prophet, are merely pawns in your futile struggle with God. Though, they probably don't know this. This is because you are a master of deception; indeed the Bible calls you "The Father of All Lies". You are also very ambitious, and you strive to be in positions of the utmost authority. Unfortunately, it was impossible for you to obtain the highest title in heaven and this is part of the reason why you decided to leave. Of course, you couldn't just leave by yourself, so you managed to use your deceptive abilities to get one third of the angels in heaven to join with you in revolt. God put down the rebellion and expelled you from heaven. To most people, it would seem foolish to start a war against God, but pride can sometimes cause people to do foolish things. In heaven, you were the most beautiful and powerful of all angels and you were well aware of this. Unfortunately, you let your pride consume you and your passions led you down the road to perdition. After you were expelled from heaven, you let another one of your attributes consume you--envy. You knew that you could never defeat God, but you could attempt to destroy humanity, his most beloved creation. Your goal is to bring as many people as possible to suffer in Hell with you. Fortunately for you, but unfortunately for the rest of us, you've been endowed with all of the attributes necessary (deceptiveness, confidence, ruthlessness, and ambition) to do a terribly good job at this.

JH needs to remember to not give his heart to people so carelessly, as keeping up appearances can be more important then openly showing feelings for someone special. JH is devastated. JH is sick of being Fortune's fool.
