Nope. My feelings on penises haven’t changed.
UPDATE: This is an awesome question, by the way.
No, same amount (envy for my inability to pee standing up), but now I kind of want to watch that episode of “Grey’s Anatomy” referenced in the post.
(But seriously, read that post because it’s hilarious how many times during the intro I had to remind myself I was reading Scientific American.)
Crippled from the fall, and humiliated from the defeat, he curses the god and his kingdom.
Instead of returning to his home on the mountain he decides to build his own heaven themed dance party on earth.
He constructs a woman robot named Ladybot to keep him company, and vows never to return to Olympus again.

This is a conversation Cronenberg wishes Paul Haggis had with him when he was prepping “Crash”: When Ivan Reitman was planning a movie called “Twins,” he called up his longtime friend and former compatriot. The conversation went something like this, according to Cronenberg:
Ivan: “I hear you’re making a movie called ‘Twins.’”
David: “Yeah, it’s about these twin gynecologists.”
Ivan: “I want to make a movie called ‘Twins’ as well.”
David: “Oh, really?”
Ivan: “Yeah, and I need the title more than you do. Arnold Schwarzenegger, Danny DeVito, twins. That’s the sell.”
David: “I can see that.”
Ivan: “So we can’t both have movies called ‘Twins.’”
David: “OK. How much?”
Reitman ended up paying Cronenberg for the use of the title, and Cronenberg changed the title of his 1988 film to “Dead Ringers,” which was now financed by “Twins” money. “And they both did OK, on their own levels,” Cronenberg chuckled.” —
On how the movie “Twins” financed David Cronenberg’s wonderfully fucked “Dead Ringers,” a movie I watched because I was trying to flirt with a co-worker at the video store I worked at (he worked at the adjoining theater) so I did what any movie geek would do and had him recommend me a movie. We were this close to falling in love forever, but then he moved away to D.C. or something. Considering that he recommended ”Dead Ringers,” this is probably a good things.
Also later, I heard he was addicted to heroin or something so that’s probably another reason why our love was never meant to be.
