Oct 13 2010Conversacube: Never An Awkward Moment


The Conversacube is a make-believe product that prevents stagnant conversation on a date by providing constant suggestions of things to say to the troll your mom set you up with. "Your eyes, they're just so....far apart."

Lauren McCarthy's idea seems harmless enough - a gadget that helps people be more sociable. Hell, if this thing was real it's definitely something you and your date can talk about.

It would also have family and kids versions, both of which are equally ridiculous. I'm pretty sure this is a commentary on how reliant people can be on technology and how some people are becoming more used to digital means of socializing than with physical or face-to-face interaction. Because as a serious concept this thing is just sad.

Listen: I 100% agree with the commentary that technology is making it more difficult for some people to function in social situations. And that is EXACTLY why I'm opening a school that teaches folks how to be social. It's gonna be called the 'Geekologie Writer's Non-nonprofit Institute for a Personable Society'. Sign up today, space in GW's NIPS is extremely limited (they're like the size of dried apricots).

Hit the jump for the cube in action on a date.

that means first!

i need one- i havent had a successful date since my mom and i practiced

this was done on monte python's meaning of life

thats rough #3. just remember: no matter howmany times you tongue-kiss your mom, you'll never fail as hard at life as #1/#2


a simple "NURRRRRRRRR!" would have sufficed

I only date girls I meet at my Tourette's support group. @#!&@%@!!?*&!!

It's never dull. We don't need no stinking icebreakers.

I only date girls I meet at the morgue. They don't have much to say, but at least they never say "no".

Sex dice have already been around for decades.

maybe chicks would be less awkward with this guy if he didn't have facial hair like a rapist.

This product is perfect because they do say. "Everytime there is an awkward silence, a gay baby is born."
@4 Your doing it wrong your mom should drop you off at your date location not stick around as your date.

Trying it with my sister was a big mistake, but not as big as when I tried it with my brother.

I'm saying people are really getting socialy ill but what the hell is that crap box ? Don't you just wanna run away when you see your date pull out that thing !!? She cant think on her own !?!, and she bought the freakin thing too cause she goes through a lot of dates ??!! What if the box said kill ! KILL! KILL!

Guys, it's really quite easy. Make the girl laugh alot and you're already half way down her pants. The other half is just making sure her glass is full. At least that's how if works with me! lol just kidding... a half glass will do thank you. XD

* a lot.

No? Too bad you're already halfway through a roofie-vodka and coke
Yea I know, yum and stuff

Finally a device that make your brain obsolete. Who wants to use his brain anyway, right?


You are thinking of the internet

I want to sign up for GW's NIPS. Yum, yum.

Great, a Turing test cube. Included with every copy of "Conversation for Idiots."

someone did a poor job making it seem like the cube did anything. And if it did work it would be better as an ear piece with selectable celebrity voices whispering in your ear.

This POS would be more useful if it had condoms in it.

Is there an app for this?

@everyone about 13-

Is it just me or are alot of comments from people trying desperately to write like GW?

It's not funny. GW isn't even funny.

@23 I totally know what you mean and agree but I'm not sure 13 was trying to sound like GW

@23 Fuck you. Is that better?
