Hardware, Embedded Systems Well-known game developer David Braben is a little bit fed up with the state of computer science education these days, which seems to have shifted away from learning programming to some sort of computer-oriented "life skills" class. As the father of eleven and nine year-old boys, I can attest that so far, despite a massive investment on the part of their school in computer equipment, their computer education has consisted mostly of "play this math game" and "don't be victimized by cyber-perverts." Braben's idea to stem this tide: a very, very cheap computer that students can learn to program on.

I dunno why but I see guys quite often complaining about how hard cunnilingus is and I just don't understand it o_o I mean, you DO know what parts are sensitive, don't you? It should be fairly obvious with even just tiny bit of imagination what you should do... and hell, if you still can't do it then.. well, ASK HER.

I am luckily well-talented in the.. uhh, fields of "oral satisfaction": I have a few very special tricks I use, some for girls, some for guys, never had a single complaint so far ;3

Weeeeell I'm not going to take this discussion any further because I'm a massive prude (I'm not kidding). Have fun though ;) .

I'd say it is complicated to learn for the very same reason why many modern cellphone keypads are so hard to use : absurdly tiny controls.

There's one big difference though : cellphone keypads do not have specific requirements nor get easily hurt through improper manipulation, making experimentation much easier.

Anyway... +1 to ask her. Admitting that contrary to popular myths, men do not come to life with in-depth knowledge of human sexuality solves many problem. But it isn't taught at school either =p

So, are you claiming that women somehow do come to life with in-depth knowledge of such?

Of course, you've never had a complaint, and that's the whole point. While you think you're a cunning linguist, she's probably telling her mother, her sister, her coworkers, and her hair dresser how lousy you are at it. But will she tell you? Of course not! And for this reason, most guys don't have a clue ...

Anyway, I was lucky enough to learn from Sam Kinison to lick the alphabet (gotta love those capital T's), so I guess I'm doing alright ;) hehe

I still only hear "we cannot talk about things even when we should." Learn to ask, it's not difficult. Similarly, teach yourself to tell without the other one having to ask. You'll be a lot happier.
