Elementary, My Rear End, Watson

Well, it seems America's newest star is Watson, the IBM computer that is schooling the greatest Jeopardy! champs of all time, Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter. He even performs the requisite "cutting up" with host Alex Trebek. Now there was a bug that allowed Jennings to score a Daily Double, but other than that, it's been a real woodshed beating.

I Don’t Like Spiders and Snakes

 

Do you actually like snakes? That's probably not exactly the correct question. Maybe it should be, "Do you mind snakes?"  The only one I can think of who has no problem with them--and can even put them around her neck without issue--is my sister. But that seems to be more of a "the enemy of my enemy is my friend"  thing. Snakes eat mice. She's terrified of mice. It all works out. Not for me. I've always been afraid of snakes. Can't remember when I wasn't. Maybe I was born that way. Maybe we all were.

Here’s Your Sign…No, Wait, Here It Is

My birthday is January 7th. For time immemorial, that has meant that I am a Capricorn. I've got the coffee cups, calendars, and t-shirts to prove it. Now, someone has decided that things have changed enough over the last few millennia and 12 signs just aren't enough.

What Rhymes with Abominable Snowman?

So the other night, we piled in the car and drove through the Land of Lights in Santa Claus, Indiana. It's and updated version of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer told in Christmas lights and it's very clever. And as I was driving, I was remembering both the song and the classic television special that I always loved growing up. The more I thought about them, the more I realized it never occurred to me when I was a kid that the lyrics of the song barely covered the material in the movie.
