    I don't have a girl. :( If I did, though, she would be far more important to me than my computer.

    And I don't drink.

    - Me

    OMG, you are a bomb waiting to explode!

    About the poll. It depends on what time of the month you ask me. But for now I'll say GF. we've lived together for 3 years and she's been around longer than this PC- But when I get my new MB and CPU, it will be a tough call.

    The poll is flawed...Im not voting at all...

    PC...
    usually reliable..
    usually responds to commands
    usually stays cool with a little tweaking.
    usually does exactly what I want it to..

    never lies..
    never cheats..
    never eats the last oreo
    never drinks the last beer.

    but then, it's an inanimate thing, a box, a tool, a source of entertainment.

    Women....ah come on...this is a setup..

    women lie
    women cheat
    women will eat the last oreo
    and drink all the beer..and demand you go to the store and get more..
    women are unreliable and petty and selfish and when the estrogen is too high and they outnumber you...they push you around alot, or try..
    women seem to think they thought of it first..regardless of when you said it..
    women always want the last word....
    arguing with more than one is suicide...
    women are almost as bad as men..
    therefore since they are human and not machines...the poll is flawed.

    Yeah, it's like saying, what do you like better? Your car or your dog- I mean, I like both-

    I'm allowed to like more than one thing right?

    I honestly can't vote on this as the option for me isn't there.

    I've been divorced for over 13 years after being married for 23 years to the same woman.

    All I can say, very honestly, is that I'm happier with my computer than I was with my wife....especially during the last several years. And that's VERY sad, indeed. There's nothing more miserable than a miserable relationship.

    Why computers are better than women

    A computer can wait forever for you.

    A computer doesn't compare you with it's past users.

    A computer doesn't get calls from it's past users while you're logged in.

    A computer doesn't mind how excited you get.

    A computer doesn't tell you how completely terrific it's past users have been.

    A computer is big in all the right places.

    A computer never forgets your birthday.

    A computer won't ask, "Are you in?"

    A computer won't ask, "Is there another computer?"

    A computer won't even talk about marriage.

    A computer won't fall in love with you just because you have sex.

    A computer won't get bitchy if you're slow to respond.

    A computer won't grade you on how much you send it.

    A computer won't look through your checkbook.

    A computer won't mind how many other accounts you have, or if you keep getting new ones.

    A computer won't say, "Let's just be friends."

    A computer won't shave with your razor.

    A computer's maintenance personnel don't cross-examine you every time you log in.

    Computers are easy to turn on.

    Computers are ready when you are.

    Computers are very responsive.

    Computers aren't into finding out how far you'll go to keep your account.

    Computers do everything you tell them to.

    Computers don't care about age differences.

    Computers don't care if you're married.

    Computers don't get pregnant.

    Computers don't get upset if you use other computers.

    Computers don't insist on foreplay.

    Computers don't make you meet their parents.

    Computers don't mind if you share them with a friend.

    Computers don't mind spending hours on the phone with you.

    Computers don't play head games unless you ask them to.

    Computers never ask you to call them in the morning.

    Computers never have headaches, or take rain checks, or have a curfew, or have that time of the month.

    Computers won't mind if you don't like their friends.

    If you don't like the feel of one terminal you can easily switch to another in less than a min.

    Size doesn't count to a computer.

    The average computer session lasts four hours.

    With a computer, you never have to say you're sorry.

    You can log into several computers at once.

    You can turn off a computer.

    You can visit a computer any time you like, and it'll be up and ready for you.

    You don't have to tell computers you love them.

    I'm weird, I have no interest in seeking a relationship at all. I am much more interested in working on my computers and electronics than dealing with people. (I'm not one of those weird people that doesn't want to meet anyone, I still have lots of friends)

    man you people are sad, everyone choses a PC over a mate?! I'm not saying you should get off your duff and meet that right person, that happens in its on own time, but come on, do i have to tell you what one can do with a mate that one can't with an expensive hunk of plastic and silicone! I guess most people who know what i mean don't bother with internet forums such as this, they have better things to do ;)
    If you're wondering why i'm posting here, it's only because i've been out and had more than a couple of beers and my present GF isn't around. In fact, I think i'll start my own very first thread...

    Aint that the life to be. I vote PC, I've had relationships, some more than one at a time. And for all the hassles, lying, and down right backstabbingness, I'm gonna have to go with my trusty PC. It also feels more like a son, knowing I built him myself adds a strong bond to me and my rig.

    My interpretation of the question asked

    The question asked is comparing the 2 choices as mere sources of entertainment or objects. To me, it's like asking: What is more entertaining to you? This hot dog or this rock?

    Why does your friend's boyfriend spend thinks his PC is more "important"? The answer is simple. It brings him entertainment. To him and probably many others a PC is a source of entertainment, information and outlet for creativity. I'm sure he cares for his girlfriend, but she doesn't seem to stimulate enough interest within him. Thus, the appearance of PC over girl is evident. Maybe the two of them don't have intellectual convos or something. BUT, I'm almost certain that if she had an interest in computers like he does, the two of them would be spending a lot more time together.

    So the question should be rephrased to this:

    Which of the two would you like to spend more time with? Your girlfriend or your PC?

    OR

    Which of these two gives you more entertainment? Your girlfriend or your PC?

    What is my vote? It depends on the person. Like I said, if I met a girl who was out of this world and was filled with adventure or had the same interest as I do (Owning ppl on the net in games), then I'd spend more time with her~! :D :D

    I will always pick the GF over the PC. The people in your life are always more important than the items you own.

    ...

    That being said, the car would be a close 2nd to a GF, however... :lol: The computer comes in at 3rd.

    The people in your life are important, until they betray you.

    Now a wife would be a different story. But their betrayel would hurt more I fear..

Although i live to see my computer do some of the things she could..... not everything she could do... could every be accomplished by a single computer......
