More of Why I Love Computers

A while back, I posted a couple examples of digitally-created silliness. This morning, another one appeared on the New York Times website:

Only a computer would tell you to "share your thoughts," and immediately add that "comments are no longer being accepted."

Remember the grand old days of science fiction, when you could blow up a computer by posing a simple paradox like "everything I say is a lie, and I am lying to you right now"? These days, the computers not only tolerate paradoxes, they routinely create them.

Hey, c'mon, don't blame the computer! Blame the goofball who wrote the article. GIGO, after all. And there's plenty of that GI on the interwebs, eh?
