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.

ATTENTION!!! My cousin Frankie McDowell has a very important announcement for all U.S. citizens living along the Pacific coast (and Vancouver, British Columbia Canada):
I hope you were paying close attention. No further warnings will be given, though I have instructed Cousin Frankie to text me with any updates.
I have never understood why women put up with men. Most of our functions can be outsourced to an electrical appliance without having to deal with anything like what’s pictured below.
I mean sure, take out the trash twice a week, kill the occasional spider, etc. But for that you’d be willing to live with this? I don’t think so.
You missed a spot!
You are the wind beneath my wings
Get in my belly!
The world's baddest man under four feet, and his "partner" Slim
Beavis hates his forehead
Is that a hard hat in your pants or are you just glad to see me?
Pinch me! I must be dreaming!
Now you know what's under the kilt
I am Tron. Respect my authori-tie!
Many thanks to Vicki-O for sending these in!
