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.

"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.

Fizpez: 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.

In switching from polite conversation abruptly to curse filled slang the computer has already passed the Tourette's Test.

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

Dicknipples are a thing, true, but it's the shiatting part of shiatting dicknipples that sets it apart.
Dicknipples themselves are passé, pedestrian and passé. The art is damn near fappable. Only by adding shiat does it become art.

DjangoStonereaver: They tried to teach the Watson computer about human language with Urban Dictionary?

How would anyone in their right mind think that was a good idea?

It will serve us right when the machines rise up and eradicate us.

If we are very lucky they will eradicate us. If they are the net there is chance that worse things that can happen. What if they get corrupted by subroutine 34? I fear for all of our anuses

Feral_and_Preposterous: 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?

That's probably where the computer called bullshiat
