How to beat the Watson Jeopardy computer
Via #1 Son.
UPDATE 24 February 2011 17:48: Boy, howdy, this sure has gotten some attention. Welcome visitors from LaughingSquid and Neatorama, and, well, pretty much everywhere on teh Intarw3bz. More geeky tech humor here, and you can always check out the other sort of stuff I blather about. If you like it, stop back. It's free!
UPDATE 1 March 2011 12:10: Hello visitors from DailyKos. And perhaps I can gently point out to commenter Gray there that it should be clear to someone as smart as he that I didn't make this. If you hover your mouse over the picture, you'll see a link to where I found it (this is hint #1). Also, if you actually read my post, you'll find out how I found it (I won't give the secret away, but rather leave it as a challenge to the reader; but it's not very hard).
As to his "wingnut" comment, honi soit qui mal y pense, scooter. But actually, you know - reading - would tell you the actual situation is much more subtle and nuanced than he lets on. I've put a lot of info about who I am and what I think in the "Borepatch 101" post that you find by clicking on Albert Einstein. Yeah, I know that it's cunningly hidden (under the "Who is this Borepatch guy, anyway?" label). Fiendishly cunning.
Anyhow, if you bothered to look there, you'll find I talk about my politics. There, I explain that I'm not a conservative. Oops. Well, maybe I'm a wingnut because I'm not a liberal. I'm also not a Libertarian, so I'd suggest that what it all really means is that I'm not much of a joiner. I don't know - maybe this is too subtle and nuanced for you.
But hey, thanks for all the traffic! And to express my gratitude, let me just suggest that reading is a Good Thing. Note: I just added the "mockery" tag to this post because, well, you can figure it out.
