Man vs Man

Listen, don't be fooled. If you are watching the Jeopardy showdown between man and machine to show who is the smartest, remember, human kind built and programed the machine. So if the machine wins, it is because we had some really smart people working on the project.
And yes, we are watching the show, and yes, we each beat-out the machine and the humans with the answers a few times, but it should not be taken so seriously-just entertainment to showcase the achievements of Humans who can BUILD something amazing.
And one other observation, it took a team of Scientists four years to complete this project, and it may one day be able to help doctors evaluate medical conditions, but wouldn't it have been nice if those same scientists were working on cures for cancer and other devastating diseases for those four years? Just saying. And the money used on this project could have gone for supplying our schools-all our schools properly, and that goes for those terrible wastes of money to put on awards shows-the cost of getting all those 15minutes of fame people glammed up (or down) for all these shows most be astronomical.
Jeez, did I get up on the wrong side of the bed today or what? Sounds like Sally's Rants not Rambles. I promise tomorrow I will be all sweet and light-or a reasonable facsimile thereof.
