Geek alert: today's Google Doodle is ******* hilarious. It's also interactive (you get to "play" a sort of mini-episode, complete with closing credit sequence.)

So, in the movies, the way the heroes finally defeat the evil, malevolent AI is to feed it some kind of logical paradox which causes it to lock up / melt down / etc., except for those cases in which the AI says to them "You stupid fool, I possess (name of magical technology) which protects me against logical paradoxes" and then proceeds to grind them into dust?

I will now conduct an experiment to see if it is possible to break Scott in a similar manner. (Consider this an ultra-cute version of the Turing test.) I present to you: My Little Kitty.

I work in a medical laboratory, and nightly I see and have to guess the spelling of some absolutely ridiculous names (guess spelling, because it's a true statement that doctors have the worst hand writing). I would guess at least 1/4 of the names we get through our doors are "those" names, which were created by combining random syllables, names of alcoholic beverages, household cleaning products, or whatever the parent was standing within sight of when thinking up a baby name. Combine those off the wall, made up names with doctors bad hand writing and you are left with a lot of fun trying to guess what the name is and how it's supposed to be spelled.

You can really notice a lot of racial trends in this field.

Or the smoot, where 1 smt is defined as the height of Oliver R. Smoot, MIT alum and later chair of the ANSI. As part of his pledge to ΛΧΑ in 1958, Smoot actually laid down repeatedly on the Harvard Bridge to be used as a measuring instrument with markings made at 10 smt intervals, whereupon the official length of the bridge was found to be 364.4 smoots, +/- 1 ear. These markings have been preserved to this day, and are in fact commonly referenced by the Cambridge Police Dept for the purpose of identifying the location of accidents, road works, and other events upon the bridge.

In the most recent rennovation of the bridge, the city itself even went so far as to score the concrete of the sidewalk at 5'7" intervals (5'7" being the canonical SAE conversion of 1 smt.). Smoots are available as units of measurement within both Google Earth and Google Calc.

The 100 Smoot mark (pre-rennovation):




Artist's depiction of the original surveying process:




Note that the plural of "smoot" is not "smeet." This fact will likely be of little relevance to you.

Hmmm...Neversink Pit sounds like something I need to put on my list as well. I've wanted to go spelunking for awhile.

In other news, my friend's Supra just broke the 8s mark.
