Steve, I have been thinking about going down but I posted a question a couple of months back on this board and received no answer so I never went.
It would be nice to know who got this started and whether this is an ongoing thing or not. I would enjoy the conversation.

Hello anyone home??

If anything, your lack of concern for your prime directive, i.e. reproduction, is a sure sign of defective programming.

Now adjust your thinking and attitude (bug fix) and get out there and score some babes.

A male having a higher opinion of himself (pride) than he realistically deserves may prove evolutionarily advantageous. If this disconnect from reality improves reproductive fitness then it can't be considered a bug.
