Brave New World

The world of May and Susan is one of sex, lies and videotape. Mine is one where siblings go to university. If we are to fuse our world together, will love and hate collide? Or what would be the outcome? Anyway, I could just ask May or Susan to solicit their business with those hot blooded undergraduates or professors to expand their sphere of business as May and Susan are Masseurs. And then introduce May and Susan to the world of calculus, integration, photonics or cosmology. And they could introduce me to their world of gambling everything away and wining the jackpot. So how many are willing to bets that our worlds can be fused and how many bets our worlds can't?

Stating the obvious -- there is no conflict between university and wild sex.
The worlds can most certainly be fused, and to be honest I think there is a level of arrogance in the idea that just because someone is "Sex, Lies and Videotape" that they are not also highly intellegent. Certainly the world of porn and sex is massively profitable, and I would expect it to lure some of the "best" people.
I think the reall question is not can they, but do you actually want that? -- I expect that your "worlds" are only separated by the fact that despite what people might say, actually they lead their life the way they want.

Look, I never say they r not intelligent. I always know at the back of my mind there r many forms of intelligence. Otherwise how else they r able to win the jackpot? And why else would people come out with phrases like God of Gamblers and what not?

The above is very profound. I'm not sure I understand what is being stated. Could you please elaborate?

On your first point I mean intellegence of all types. Why wouldn't a Quantum Mechanic make a good pornographer?
On the second point:
If I like rock music, I go to Rock concerts, if I like Chinese girls, I hang out in Chinatown.
If I don't gamble, dont do wife swapping, but spend my days studying cosmology, what are my interests? -- cosmology.
If I were a table dancer, but had an interest in differential calculus, dont you think I would be at evening school (OK so probably *day* school .
I think you are looking at a Hollywood (Pretty Woman?) fantasy. Do you really see the world made up of serious businessmen who work all day, and never have fun, and others who live a life of vice? Its not like that.
People fantasize, dream, say they want this or that. The grass is always greener and so on.
Sounds like its time for you to draw out your savings, fly to Amsterdam or Bangkok, and not sleep for three days. Tell me your outlook on life when you come back -- Ive got 2 cents that says you will still want to get married, have a couple of kids and live the life you always planned.
You live the life you want. (fact, as well as advice

I suspect that people are often *tricked* into living the life that they think they should want.

First, he ask me to draw out all my savings and spend some days at amsterdam or bangkok without sleep and then you telling me that some people are tricked into living the life they want or something like that, may I know what's the connection?
Yeah, I also would like to know why wouldn't a quantum mechanic make a good phonorgrapher?

Even if I were to go to amsterdam or bangkok, don't think I'll do anything much because I have seen a girl where when I first lay eyes on her, my head shoot thru the roof. And I've milk a size D. And she's as crazy as I am!

Actually, I think if you fuse your world to the world of May and Susan, you get the life of some of the CEOs of some of the biggest corporations in American today. So all one has to do is look and see where they are ending up to answer your question. It sure is strange how they can gamble a whole company away and still end up with the jackpot. Even those that are getting caught are still ending up with the jackpot!

Hmmmmmm.....where they end up? Ok, I'll read the business news more closely this time. Wonder what ending up with the jackpot is?
