Another Korean English Response

Another golden english response for my fiancee. Here are the last ones.

I think women can't do any job because woman can do job. There are many of man, but woman take every job. So man don't to do anything and I think woman want to go to army.

I think women can't do any job because I has only man can do. Like runing and got a question and making a good academy, can many.
I don't understand quite what he's saying.

An Embarrassing Find

I'm moving this weekend to a larger place. While I was cleaning the new bedroom, I started vacuuming the top shelf of the closet, which is about 7 feet up. I knocked a DVD off of it, and thought, "Wow, someone left a DVD here!" Then I looked at it: Porn. I told my fiancee and friends and they got a kick out of it. I'm sure someone would be embarrassed if they knew they left it behind. It was in a fairly out of the way place, so it could have been the last tenant or even the one before, not that I care if I know. Anyway, I've sanitized the images somewhat so I don't have slap a restricted content message on my blog.

Wolfram|Alpha Is Online

I've actually not been following the crazy hype around last months release of Wolfram Alpha, the "answer engine" of crazy and uncanny data. So, it wasn't until yesterday that I actually sat down and tried some stuff after a coworker showed it too me. It does some fun and crazy stuff. The way it selects and lays out data is pretty cool.

Anyway, after a few minutes, impressed, we decided that this thing must be evil, or at the very least dangerous. So I suggested we ask it if it was Skynet. It actually answered!
It "claims" not to be Skynet, citing the date of Skynet's activation (from Terminator 2) as the date of it's destruction and also saying how it, "enjoys interacting with humans." I'm sure. HAL 9000 enjoyed human interaction too! See what happened! Also, Wolfram conveniently ignores the fact that in the "new reality" of post-T2 events, Skynet turns out to be a distributed internet AI death program, so you be the judge.

Anyway, I started thinking about things and figured that we couldn't be the first ones to discover Wolfram's suspiciously Skynet intelligence, and as it turns out, we aren't.
