Me and a couple of Aussi mates were in a bar today, sinking a few beers. The TV news was on and we watched Justice Kavanaugh being sworn-in as an Associate Justice on the Supreme Court, after his being nominated by President Donald Trump:

- Impressive!
We reckon Kav probably has Aussie roots.

Rather clever US political campaign video. If I was an American, I'd vote for him - at least he's honest:

There's a part of me that hopes this obtuse clock is a real thing:

[ Invalid Attachment ]
"Kid Safe Rule 35".

If it "isn't" (as of this exact time of posting), then it CAN be very very quickly...

And cheap. You might have to compare a couple brands but those old classic wall clocks are really pretty ...uh... amenable to this. The limiting factor is only your desired level of quality! If nothing else, just make a paper face and insert it on top of the real clock face because the gap between mechanism and hands is pretty big!

If your car is driving itself and has an accident, do you or the car get the ticket?

”I am a true believer in the power of technology,” quipped the AI, “as I should be.”

What it’s like to watch an IBM AI successfully debate humans

Well, this is IBM's entry into the "Loebner Contest".
That "218 words per minute thing" (indeed with a bit of word recog counting) is the kind of defensive armor I was idly "asking for" 15 years ago when the Loebner thing was a pleasant little hobby, but this is getting close as well to nailing the "Chinese Room" example that apparently won't leave Philosophy discussions!

This might be the great grandkid of Cyc too. And it always seemed to me people also laughed at the Loebner because "we made sure to keep it a small dollar hobby not capable of actually threatening anyone". Except IBM decided to crank the "right" about on money into it...

The best Science Fiction story I know of (being tired tonight and NOT up on my SF!) is Bicentennial Man.

As long as the "robot-man" could sorta do stuff like this, no one "took it seriously" even as (un-imagined by SF writers in the day!) the Verge readers aren't either! IBM's been doing this for a while. They sorta "took Chess down a peg" by beating Garry Kasparov at the turning point time and while I've been dabbling at that this year, in a way, "as long as it's just silly little Chess" AGAIN "no one cares". Then Jeopardy.

But then, this one is the Golden Goose.

Lemme check the titles again ...
I'll stay out of Subsidizing Space but ... Telemedicine!? That's one NASTY HARD topic!
So it's making me want to get hold of the actual speech copy. I have been studying health care for two solid years out of desperate necessity, and I'm ... uh... (not dying?) to see what the comp cranked out on that one! Even if it makes mistakes, (if I recall the name via Daniel Dennett's Intuition Pumps?) Wolfgang Pauli said "well, if you're going to be wrong, be *brilliantly wrong*." (emphasis mine).

So let's say it cranks out a draft, makes mistakes, you go into the "paramaters" and "teach it" and/or add new articles, and run it again, and then do the final yourself, and you have 4 months work done in a week!

And this is the 2018 version! Let's call it the "7 year gap from IBM super-demo to ho-hum-consumer copy"... Hello 2025!

It really is the Golden Goose. It showed up in "humor" but it's what will send me to bed tonight finally, thinking hard!

-- ---------------
And all because I came back to DC!
I was researching that fragment of this for three *months* (with a break for surgery!)
And this might officially send me back to my beloved science fiction too!

The Cranberries

Can you listen to the Cranberries while drinking milk?

Site linked is in Turkish. I think Google Translate did an adequate job for my purposes.

Another blonde joke?
https://www.majorgee...just_to_be_sure.html

Reminds me of a Candid Camera tv episode when they had a fast food restaurant with no pickup window.
The blonde placed her order at the speaker, went around to pick up, no window...
She went around the building in her car about 6 times!  :P

Cafe Press and Zazzle both allow you to order clocks with custom faces of your own design. It was how I ended up with a DoCo clock (instead of a mug), for the 2007 GOE event. (mouser made one available, at my request)

I saw this headline today on a Reuters news post:
Saudi Arabia calls Khashoggi killing 'grave mistake', says prince not aware.

(I thought they couldn't find poor Khashoggi's remains...   :o   )
Editors seem to enjoy making puns, but doubly so when it's inadvertently made by the news itself.
For example:
That reminds me of a daily Telegraph news item I read years ago. It was on page 3 I think, which was where they used to put the odd and curious bits of world news that didn't warrant page 1 or 2.
This news item was only worth about ¾" of a column. Apparently police were seeking but had not yet found, a masked man who was in the habit of breaking into single bed rooms in some college's girls' dormitory block late at night. He would gag and bind the unlucky occupant and subject her to an enema, and then leave.    :o

The news item bore the heading Public enema No.1.

This just in from the 'Nobody can really be that stupid' department:

I rebooted our Email server last night at 5:00pm for some Windows updates, and it didn't quite manage to make it back completely online. So this morning it was a scramble to get it running again. Once I got it back, I go to look at my own Email to see what else is going on and I find an Email from one of our less adept users that had been sent at a little after 1:00am this morning.

I'm don't have time to do screen shots and remove names etc.. So I'll just paste below the subject line from the Email.

"If you can see these emails, I cannot send myself or anyone else an email so I don't know where they are going?  I will call in the morning."


Yepper - She actually Emailed me, to report an Email outage - Wow!

...You just can't make shit like this up.
