IBM has created a computer that can compete in Jeopardy and they've named it

This is seriously fucking scary. Not only has a super-intelligent AI been created but it's been able to do what no mortal has been able to do before: best me at Jeopardy. It's only a matter of time before Watson becomes bored with it's current opponents, Brad and Ken, and come searching for a more formidable opponent. Namely: me.

What if I'm the last hope for humanity, the John Connor of prime-time game shows. I'll need to start preparing my mind if I want to compete with the cold, emotionless, calculating super-computer that would like nothing more than to humiliate me in front of the entire nation, sending a clear message that machines now controlled the world of game shows and any attempt to dethrone them would be met with unmerciful force.
But fear not, my comrades. You can rest assured that I will not go down without a fight. And when I finally crush Watson's silently whirring CPU beneath my boot, you can be sure that I will deal with that traitor, Alex Trebek, who attempted to pave the way for AI dominance.
|I've got your number, Trebek|
And your mother's as well
Also, I'd like to say that there's going to be a slight change to my updating schedule. When I started this blog I wanted to try and be able to post daily. I quickly realized this was a terrible mistake because even though I'm quite awesome, I simply can't distribute it every single day. So from now on I will be making at least one totally fucking awesome post a week, though I will update more frequently than that if I find more things to talk about that week.
Rad Thad out, you robot-fighting people
