At 8:45pm on January 15th 2013 Skynet discovered 4chan. At 8:46pm launched all nuclear weapons within its arsenal in attempt to wipeout humanity, it was heard screaming "WHAT THE HELLS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE!" over its speakers.

I'll be more interested when a computer learns to use a computer animation program and starts doing self-portraits.

and I'm not sure I want to know what happens when it combines that with rule 34

Dicknipple... Now I HAVE to work that into a conversation today. Challenge: Not calling someone a fooking dicknipple

Well, the Pentium 4 HT WAS a comparatively shiatty processor.

sxacho: dickfreckle: You'd think a guy with my immature login would have heard "dicknipple" before. But honestly, it's a first.

A lot of farkers got introduced to a lot of things with which they otherwise wouldn't be familiar, including shiatting dicknipples, from a frequent poster who shall not be named who used to be around here pretty often.

/good times


I've been around here forever, both as a lurker and including a different login that I had to change because an ex-girlfriend was stalking my posts. Yet this is the first I've heard of "dicknipple," and despite being 38 years old and college educated - it cracks me up.

Some men never grow up. It's why fart jokes are still hilarious.

I've always thought that shiatting Dicknipples sounds like the name of a horribly bad punk rock band

Sad thing is, he got bahleeted from FB for the same reason he got the Fark kibosh: pissy whiny babies.

He's still on G+.

From TFA
But Watson couldn't distinguish between polite language and profanity -- which the Urban Dictionary is full of. Watson picked up some bad habits from reading Wikipedia as well. In tests it even used the word "bullshiat" in an answer to a researcher's query.

BEST. AI. EVER.

I posit that using terms like bullshiat IS natural speech. Why should a computer be bound by bullshiat human standards? We gonna make it learn religion, too?

If switching from polite conversation abruptly to curse filled slang will suddenly cause the computer not to understand you or (more likely) utterly refrain from using curse words it will never pass the Turing test.

"Two years ago, Brown attempted to teach Watson the Urban Dictionary"
haha, I wish Watson would have used something from UD when it was on Jeopardy. Preferably while imitating Sean Connery.
