       <Chronological's mum> Hmm... an I love you message. I wonder what they are after?
pocmloc, Jan 12 2021

       Send the first copy to 8th. No, wait, that'll just help him hide easier.
RayfordSteele, Jan 12 2021

       Why would we want to hide ? Anyway, we already have a cloaking device ...   

       // Do you need help being a human being? //   

       Email a link to this to [beany] ?

       Pot-kettle-black, [8th]?

       Also, what [kdf] said.

       // Pot-kettle-black, [8th]? //   

       Why would we want to downgrade... ?
8th of 7, Jan 12 2021

       What [kdf] said, aside from all that mushy faffing about.

       I'd hesitate to use the word //need// but this seems like a fine idea.
sninctown, Jan 13 2021

       // model human //   

       Is this "model" in the sense of "a smaller, cheaper, easily replaceable, though largely representative version of the actual item, with limited functionality, but that can be considered expendable, and that it's fine to do destructive experiments on" ?   

       We understood that your species referred to these as "children" ...

       or "Lego mini-figure"

       Maslow's hierarchy? First things first, then the higher level achievements will be remembered.
wjt, Jan 14 2021

       First things best. The people I know who are doing "higher level achievements" often are carrying a heavy mental burden. There is another way. Return to monkey.
sninctown, Jan 14 2021

       Looks like the U.S. are going to try that, at least for the next four years ...

       //Maslow's hierarchy?//   

       Maslow's hierarchy was pseudo- science with a quite creepy political sub- text. Maybe don't start from there.
pertinax, Jan 14 2021

       Maslow's hierarchy has an important kernel of truth. Don't throw out the parable with the religion.
Voice, Jan 14 2021

       OK, I'll bite; what would you say is the kernel of truth in Maslow's hierarchy?   

       If it's just "first things first", that's pretty vacuous because it assumes that the correct sequence of firstness is already settled. If you think that Maslow's particular sequence was right (especially the higher parts of it), then you and I are in a state of disagreement.
pertinax, Jan 18 2021

       As much as I want to disagree with you, I'll have to think about it first.
Voice, Jan 18 2021

       Good thoughts, behaviours and empathies are not going to happen and be retained with low food intake and poor sleep. I'd say, there's levels of importance.
wjt, Jan 18 2021

       Good sleep and nutritious food intake don't happen without good thoughts and behaviours, though.
pocmloc, Jan 18 2021

       //I'll have to think about it first.//   

       No you won't! </Python>
pertinax, Jan 18 2021

       //Good sleep and nutritious food intake don't happen without good thoughts and behaviours, though.//   

       True enough, everything is only personal. Everything is personal product choice.
wjt, Jan 19 2021

       ... except your personal genetic sequences, which are set at time of manufacture.
8th of 7, Jan 19 2021

       Nah. My metabolic environment and processes get buyer's choice. And some of the windows in the street even get vandalized.
wjt, Jan 21 2021

       We might be at cross purposes here; my beef is much more with the higher steps of Maslow's ziggurat: I have no problem with prioritizing food, sleep and safety. It's where he makes the (originally Hegelian) idea of self- actualization contingent on societal esteem that it all goes horribly wrong, in my opinion.
pertinax, Jan 21 2021

       // contingent on societal esteem //   

       Isn't that the thing where you're forced to interact with other members of your species ?   

       Explain what that's for again... sounds quite horrible.

       Does anyone know what [kdf] said?
Voice, Sep 22 2023

       Have you tried the Wayback Machine?
pertinax, Sep 23 2023

       Thanks, hadn't thought to do that. [kdf] said:   

       (+) for sentiment. [-] As a halfbaked idea.   

       How ARE you really doing this morning?
Voice, Sep 23 2023

       I'm ready for bed (because it's this evening where I am). Just been to my parents- in- law's 60th anniversary celebration. So, quite warm and fuzzy. How about you? Thinking of a career in modelling?
pertinax, Sep 23 2023

       Yes, I'm certain there are thousands of agencies looking for pasty, obese middle-aged men with bad teeth. They scour the internet looking for such and now that you've told them I exist they'll track me down soon enough. I've avoided them so far, but for enough millions I suppose I can model a thong or two.
Voice, Sep 23 2023

       I tried to build a model human but there were too many parts, some parts were missing, I had to get my own glue, and when I got done it wasn't nearly as big as the advertisements promised. I keep it on a shelf to remind me of the perfection of reality.
minoradjustments, Sep 23 2023

       May I suggest engaging a member of the opposite sex in your next attempt?
