In Jeopardy.

Reigning all-time “Jeopardy!” champions have finally met their match in the form of a super-computer. I really hope they turn this into an SNL skit. I miss Will Farrel as Trabeck.

Watson, a computer the size of 10 refrigerators developed by IBM, took on champions Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter last week, defeating them both by a landslide. Watson had no problems answering a group of questions about female archeologists, and repeatedly rang his buzzer before either of his human competitors gave the answers or questions in this case, in a calm male voice. I am glad those know it alls got their asses handed to him, they looked like smug jerks anyways.

The practiced preliminary contest conducted on Thursday came before a million-dollar television tournament set for next month. So, next time, we get to watch them get slaughtered live! I probably still wont watch Jeopardy, does anybody even watch it anymore that is under the age of 60?
