Is N.D. Tyson popular enough to survive an onslaught?

. . . NDT is fugly.

John, I suspect you overestimate the role of a pretty face in sexual selection, and perhaps underestimate some subtler cues, which can be as powerful as facial appearance. (But I also realize and appreciate your humorous intent, as well.) Sure, the face is important, and an unusually attractive one can override lots of potential turnoffs. But obviously, the way a face appears is only one of many items on a human sex-cue list. My best guess is that Tyson has never needed to worry about attracting women.

Here’s a new thread that’s somewhat, but not really, related:

Consent misperceptions are issues reserved for the aesthetically unappealing, the awkward types and the douchebags. #MACA

You mean the guys who understand the ins and outs of insanely complex technology? Of course, some—Nhoj for instance—manage to be both cool and able to attend to the details of hi-tech. A rarity.


You could be a nerd, dork or a geek and still be cool. It’s just pretty rare. I don’t know Nhoj non-digitally, but I imagine he’s cool as shit. That said, there’s only one original around here, and let me just say that coolness is magic not material. You either got it or you don’t. Fortunately, there’s a sneakily surprising amount of cool around this forum.

Since you mention it, the apparent consensus is that I am unbearably so in analog form. And as a geek, I have been rubbish. It is time to face the music.

I enjoy NDT’s effervescence. I imagine it leaks into his mating habits.

Regarding the above boldfaced words, Nhoj, what are you referring to? Your previous neighborhood rubbish-removal material here has been funny, but I suspect it’s unrelated? If not, an old pal of mine is now a hi-tech headhunter who would probably appreciate a new referral. Let me know.

I mean my computer skills. I’m obsolete. Soon, no one will know what a soldering iron is or how you download the app for one. The rubbish in question is all my damn mp3’s. I learning to use two computers to do the job now as it is too much for my little music-machine. I’m fixing it. It’ll be fine. Eventually.

One more question, Nhoj—when you mention “effervescence,” are you comedically referencing something other than what that word normally means? If you are, you’ll understand my otherwise peculiar question. If not, never mind. Howard Stern will do okay. (Sorry—long story.)

As in enthusiasm and perkiness.

If asked a sciencie question, he seems to want to explode with the answer.

I’m sick of seeing the trial by media (social media too).  How long before Elon Musk gets accused of something?  How long before sexual abuse/rape accusations become a standard weapon in the corporate world to take out the heads of competition?
