Can a robot learn to be like a human? Some Japanese researchers hope that their robot child will eventually talk, perhaps two years from now, and furthermore that they hope it will have a soul. It’s ambitious, but I’m thinking that it’s going to take more than two years, unless they have some way to accelarate the pace!
New videogame lets you slap CEO online.
Would you leave this recession alone or confront it? Playing this game, if you leave the recession alone, you see lots of people asking for money, but you just don’t give them any. You can give them money or not give them money. If you give them all money, all the CEOs and defaulting homeowners, your economy will fail, but if you don’t give them any money you can slap them instead. That’s right, in this game you can slap those people who make monetary requests. So if you slap them all, your economy fails, but if you don’t slap them, do nothing, or give them money, the only other option is to QUIT THIS CRAZY GAME.
Some people make the stupidest comments on blogs. For example, someone said that a group of people breaking into a house was not trespassing, since they thought that burglary was more appropriate. The reason they gave is that burglary means to enter a house with intent to commit another crime. But the stupid thing is that they said that the other crime they intended to commit was trespass!
Well, you can’t say that it’s burglary just because they were trespassing. It’s prosecution for the same crime. Burglary in most jurisdictions means trespassing with intent to commit another crime that is a felony. So it’s really silly to take legal advice from some random post on the Internet!
What they should have said is that there was intent to commit another crime, such as vandalism. Silly!
A trillion dollars is a lot of money. But it’s not enough to get to the moon. That would take four trillion dollars. If you had four trillion one dollar bills lined up end-to-end, it could extend from the Earth all the way to the Moon. That’s a lot of money!
People often use different ages. Akon says he’s 21 though his birth certificate says he’s 31. To get gold medals, the Chinese government took advantage of lenient rules based on trust that governments will honestly issue passports to Olympic gymnasts. Maybe I can be 24 again, and begin a career in the entertainment industry.
