This is pretty spooky. According to this article on cnet news, an IBM supercomputer named Watson will compete against two human opponents on the game show Jeopardy! as soon as this fall.
I’ve been a fan of Jeopardy! since back when Art Fleming was the host, but never thought I’d see this day come. I also “auditioned” for Jeopardy! recently using their online testing and failed miserably.
If this machine can not only come up with the answers, but understand and process human speech, vet through the puns and hints, convert the answer to the form of a question – and click the button – faster than a couple of the best trivia players in the world, we’re all in big trouble.

Alright, I know it’s juvenile and scatological but, God help me, it’s funny.
I find very few things funnier than an over-the-top televangelist, but it turns out that syncing 29 random fart sounds to this guy’s squints turns out to be one of those few things.
I don’t know why I can’t embed this video directly into the blog but it is so GD funny that you MUST click the photo below and watch it. (This is a direct order from your superior soldier!)
Click the photo above and prepare for a laugh treat.
Provided that you like extremely raunchy sexual humor (without the gratuitous skin shots) you will absolutely LOVE this. And you can take that to the bank, because that’s an Uncle Frankie Guarangoddamntee!
Many thanks to RJ for this hilarious submission.
What’s the best reason for a guy to go into music? For the ladies! Lord knows that’s why I did.
This was my final appearance on Soviet TV. But don’t worry ladies, 36 years later and I am STILL getting it done!
Guilty as charged Your Honor.
Who’s your favorite New Media Douchebag? I’m mine.
