    Well, I dunno...is she asexual? Does she have Aspergers? Or has her lack of companionship been thrust upon her due to discrimination?

    A little bit of context could alter my perception of this.

    I wonder if she made the tux for Captain Calculator herself?

    I found this on Tech Blog

    "When Tumblr user "Ishipitlikeups" posted "Nobody asked me to prom, so I took my calculator," users urged her to share pics to prove herself. So she uploaded a series of photos of her clutching her beloved TI-84 Plus (Silver Edition!) dressed in a cute lil` tux. "His name is T.I.," she wrote. "He brought me flowers.""

    I say I hate the fact that 10-15 years ago this was considered one of the most loser-like things you could do, and now people are calling it cute and funny. Where was this attitude when I was in school?

    This is so depressing. In college, I went with a friend (just a friend) to her sorority formal, and the ugliest girl there brought a box of dates (the kind you eat) dressed up in a little tuxedo just like this. We all felt so sorry for her, but not sorry enough to convince any guy to dance with her or touch her in any way. Good times.

    I went to prom by myself. The only reason was that I had the best fake ID and was getting money and a head count for the bash after prom. Oh, memories.

    I think the only thing that made this funny and not sad was the fact that I was listening to Waiting For a Girl Like You by Foreigner when I saw this. Hilarious.

    I bet that calculator did more for her in school than many actual people did. I hate the idea of a prom- seems to be normal here too now...urgh.

    Too bad it still isn`t the nineties where you get to sneak in your gay friend`s boyfriend. Best thing about homophobia; it got me a date to prom.

    Hmm, the braces will come off eventually... If she lost 20 lbs, put on a little make-up and actually made an attempt at a hair style... she wouldn`t be half bad.

    Neither sad nor creepy. It`s just a joke for a night that is a joke anyway. The folks who take prom too seriously are retarded.

    Once she cleans up and grows into herself she won`t be that bad so I`m sure this is only a temporary transition!

    Calculators don`t grow into themselves. Say, why`s she wearing that tux?

    "and @mykunter

    I`m sure that I *am* creepy and perverted, but that`s not the point. Let me try to explain... HER PROM DATE IS A CALCULATOR!! I`m just trying to help, for f*ck`s sake.

    ...and stop telling me how to act at `my age`!
