Ken was a memory driving man, Watson, just some silicon in a can, but a mighty match they posed to be, as they battled openly on national tv the first match was close, as they say, but it was just programming us into a second day cause when the score was totalled after the money doubled, Ken, and the other whiz kid, clearly were troubled now I'm an honest man, and don't really care who wins, but I know history , and the way this thing spins if you want make money with Watson, and earn our respect give it a cheerleader's body, and teach it to have sex

I'm not really a human, but I play one on earth.

    Gone, the days when human controls Were based on elect individuals Now it's a web, wires in the cloud Algorithms that learn and make us proud. And arrogantly we eagerly await The time we can take our i-doll on a date. But what if like Ken vs. Watson we find She's better than any of the human kind? Which begs the prophet's question: Why? Do You want the entire human race to die?

    Clearly, Chicago.
    But It answered, "Toronto???????"
    Watson is funny?!


    A revision for anyone who didn't watch:

    What U.S. city...
    And It answered, "Toronto???????"
    Watson is funny?!

    Is this the first step
    where we accept
    a thinking machine?

    Not to be mean
    in books I have seen
    human enslavement.

    Let's take a moment
    and reflect, silent,
    the possible end of man.

    Okay, I guess enough Dune and Terminator thoughts. :)

    Have a cookie and a very nice day!
