Objectum sexual woman marries Eiffel Tower

Of course, there was some heartbreak. She broke up with a sword. No kidding.

I will admit that I had unusually strong feelings for my old Buick LeSabre. Whether it was fear of commitment or the fact that I am totally sane, marriage never entered the picture.

    I love Mayo.
    The issue of marriage never crossed my mind.

    I am the same way with hot/BBQ chicken wings.

    Ok, do my eyes deceive me or does she appear to have the Eiffel Tower tatooed in her chest, primarily between her breasts? Wouldn’t that be like tatooing the name of your significant other, which as we all know, is the kiss of death for any relationship?

    It appears she does. The Eiffel Tower is totally going to dumper her in three months. Psycho.

    Fascinating.

    Knowing that Asperger’s is on the “autistic spectrum,” all this object-humping makes more sense when you read this:

    [Neuroscientists] put people in the FMRI machine and had them perform a very simple task in which they were given either pairs of faces or pairs of objects (such as chairs or hammers) and they had to press a button indicating whether the pairs were the same or different.

    Normal people, when they were looking at the faces, used a part of their brain called the fusiform gyrus, which is an incredibly sophisticated piece of brain software that allows us to distinguish among the literally thousands of faces that we know. (Picture in your mind the face of Marilyn Monroe. Ready? You just used your fusiform gyrus.)

    When the normal participants looked at the chair, however, they used a completely different and less powerful part of the brain ­– the inferior temporal gyrus — which is normally reserved for objects. (The difference in sophistication of those two regions explains why you can recognize Sally from eighth grade forty years later but have trouble picking out your bag on the airport luggage carousel.)

    When [they] repeated the experiment with autisitic people, however, he found that they used their object-recognition area for both the chairs and the faces. In other words, on the most basic neurological level, for someone with autism, a face is just another object.
