Adages Abound?

OK, ok, economics is depressing me. A moment for some philosophizing:

So this guy's living with the perfect woman:
“She doesn’t need holidays, food or rest and she will work almost 24-hours a day. She is the perfect woman,” he said.
He built her himself:
Le, a scientific genius from Brampton in Ontario, Canada, said he never had time to find a real partner so he designed one using the latest technology.
But no sex:
He said he did not build Aiko as a sexual partner, but said she could be tweaked to become one.
Try a gentle rubbing rather than a "tweak".

There are a few minor problems aside from the not-gettin'-any aspect of the relationship. The inventor's in debt up to his ears, is living with his brother, has no job, and had a heart attack at the age of 33. How much good is it for your "perfect woman" to know 13,000 different sentences in various languages if she doesn't know when to curtail her conversation to "You need to go to the doctor!"

Also, I have to believe that most average, decidedly imperfect women are capable of far more than 13,000 sentences. There's all sorts of variations along the lines of:
"The neighbors have a better [car/boat/house/lawn/mailbox/pool~] than we do", and
"Honey, buy me a [fill in the blank].

See, that's the problem. Your average woman is irritating and wants to sleep sometimes, but you get sex and generally you last longer. I can't quite imagine any of the guys I know including the "no-sex" bit in their definition of the perfect woman. Granted that plenty of men have ended up broken, in debt and basically run over in their pursuit of the perfect woman. It's proverbial. The thing is, in general they were thinking that they would get a roll in the hay out of it, and many times they actually did before going bust and being discarded like last year's Ken doll.

Now, before I found out that the inventor didn't have the sex tweak done yet, I was thinking that Sharper Image didn't really have to go bankrupt. I'm guessing this would be a hot seller, with you know, a few enhancements.

But watch Gizmodo.com - they've always got the best and the newest! Their version of the perfect woman will
include sex! Just look what they've done with the old tried-and-true get her a puppy gift idea! That's outstanding! You definitely couldn't land in the dog house for that gift!

Does anyone else want to see the BigDog go after Aiko? Wouldn't that be great? Download the video (beware, the BigDog looks like a mutant outerspace insectoid BEM from hell) and just imagine Aiko running along in front of that thing, screaming.

Puts a smile on my face just thinking about it. Maybe DARPA will be able to save us from the perfect women. This post and story really ought to be up at Exurban Nation, but disappointingly, Rob is confining himself to pointing out nasty economic truths.
