Yeah honestly. I live in San Diego, and I'm probably moving to LA. I'm going to need the better handling to avoid potholes and the TERRIBLE drivers.

Dude, we got pot holes that come back every year because the towns don't repair them, they just patch.

It's freaking horrible

I need to get a picture of a pothole near my work. It SWALLOWED some poor ~03 Accord today, because the suspension had full droop and the chassis just bottomed out. and that happened just because of the recent SoCal rains.

they said, at the beginning, that Watson was fed the questions as a standard ASCII text file at the same time the questions were revealed on the board and read aloud to the contestants.

...oh, and Toronto is now apparently a US City.

Oh i just saw the first intro where he said it was fed electronically, and then he went blah blah big super computer, blah blah very fast, blah blah same old thing but new computers. I skipped the 2 other intros and jumped in the action lol.

So what i was right, the computer had a head start.. Skynet sure is sneaky.


Oh and you forget, Toronto is a canadian city, Toronto????? is american.

lol

Maybe Watson's knowledge of world events allows him to predict future events with accuracy, thus thinking Toronto is a U.S. city.... eh?
