KIK000's Comments

A portable set of hand-grip exercise device. These were a must-have for any self-respecting athletic person in the 80s. They could hang from a key-chain to avoid taking away precious fanny-pack space.

The "riddle" is in how simple it is to forget how things work and be tricked by the wording of the problem.

I can't figure out why, but first instinct seems to be to take 1/2 of 100 and say that's the age of the younger brother. That's not the case. The younger brother is only 2 years younger than the older. Always.

yeah, actually I would venture to say that if AMEX or any software has any sort of unexpected response when receiving the value "null" on any field then they are probably extremely vulnerable to SQL injection attacks and they need to do something about it pronto.

Good practice in programing would sanitize the input before processing it so they should not be read as code.

Map is wrong in more ways than one. It's Iguazu Falls, not Iguaza Falls and to say they are in Argentina is like saying the Niagara falls are in Canada. Don't care to look at the rest of the map after seeing that.

The end of the article, which I think is Miss C's opinion, is right, there is no consciousness at all; just clever programing.

As the steps are explained the program doesn't check by attempting to make sounds and then assessing whether sounds were made or not.

It just checks to see if the robot knows (which they can't know) so then they must report "I don't know" and it is only after that assessment and report happen that the program re-checks (now with more information) and it turns out it does know.

The other 2 robots are stuck in a loop, they check and don't know; They report but gain no additional information; They check and they don't know; They report but gain no additional... you get it.. (keep in mind to the robot the report happens regardless of the connection to the speakers. The signal comes out anyway.

I think they are attempting to program responses similar to consciousness. I think eventually by this process we'll get robots closer and closer to something resembling ours. Then again who says our consciousness is the most effective? maybe robots will have something more efficient, better.

I disagree with the idea that Will Smith needs to be silly so that a movie with him on it is good.
The Pursuit of Happyness was REALLY good and there was nothing silly or fun about his character.

Not always, I think if you put a well in a valley you will collect more water, but also more impurities and dirt, whereas a hill will allow you to have a deep container for rainwater.

Also, they might not have been getting water from a well.
"The source of a river is usually found in high places such as hills or mountains. A river can have more than one source. Some rivers begin where a natural spring releases water from underground. The source of the River Thames is a spring."

Hold your horses!
I heard this before somewhere...
I think it goes like this:
John and Jill went up the hill
To fetch a pail of water.
John fell down and broke his crown,
And Jill came tumbling after.
