Meanwhile, more and more people are moving off of Earth to the colonies in space. The population is getting so sparse that J.F. Sebastian is the only person living in the Bradbury Building in downtown LA. If on top of that you added sexbots which look and behave like human beings (but can't produce children), mankind would probably end up going extinct.
That's where Blade Runners come in. They hunt and "retire" (kill) replicants so that humans have no choice but to fuck other humans and create tinier ones, maintaining the species. There are subtle hints to this throughout the movie. Replicant Zhora is working as a stripper when she is retired -- and her pet is a snake, the most dick-shaped of animals.
Guess a rooster was too obvious.
Pris, meanwhile, is pretending to be a hooker when Sebastian finds her. Finally, we have Rachael, who is different from the other replicants in that she thinks she's human, complete with implanted memories. Her creator explains that this is an "emotional cushion," but why do that? The most logical explanation is to make a more effective sex doll -- one you could fall in love with. Which is exactly what the protagonist does. In the end, innocent Rachael is the most dangerous of the whole bunch.
Probably why they cast Sean Young.
You know all those facts you've learned about psychology from movies and that one guy at the party who says, "Actually ..." a lot? Please forget them. Chances are none of them are true.

Free food and nightsticks," you might not get the most stable group of young men. So join Jack O'Brien, Cracked staff members Dan O'Brien and Michael Swaim, and Psychology Professor Martie G. Haselton of UCLA as they debunk Rorschach tests, the Mozart effec,t and middle child syndrome, so soon you can be that person at the party who says, "Actually ..." Get your tickets here!
