No word if they found any evidence of robotic owls.

Lair of Ancient 'Kraken' Sea Monster Possibly Discovered

Quote:
A giant sea monster, the likes of the mythological kraken, may have swum Earth's ancient oceans, snagging what was thought to be the sea's top predators — school bus-size ichthyosaurs with fearsome teeth.

The kraken, which would've been nearly 100 feet (30 meters) long, or twice the size of the colossal squid, Mesonychoteuthis, likely drowned or broke the necks of the ichthyosaurs before dragging the corpses to its lair, akin to an octopus's midden, according to study researcher Mark McMenamin, a paleontologist at Mount Holyoke College in Massachusetts.

BOSTON (AP)—Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein is likely to join the Chicago Cubs within the next 48 hours, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press on Tuesday night.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no announcement had been made.

The Cubs fired general manager Jim Hendry on Aug. 19 and finished 71-91. They have been pursuing Epstein, who just finished his ninth season with Boston. The Red Sox missed the playoffs following a record collapse, going 7-20 in September and finishing at 90-72.

General manager Theo Epstein just finished his ninth season with Boston.
Epstein would be going to a Cubs franchise that hasn’t won the World Series since 1908...

I predict that in the not-to-distant-future space travelers will be able to look down on Chicago, see Wrigley Field and declare in the words of Mike Nelson and his Robot Pals:

"Look: you can see the Cubs lose from here!" Cheesy

Apple's Siri is getting lots of attention for being the App with attitiude. She also seems to have seen the same movies that we have!

Not all of her advice should be taken...
...

but she is wise in the ways of sparrows.
...

Just don't ask her to sing....

Cheesy

     Yes, it's odd.

Siri doesen't miss a thing! At first I was amused, now I'm a little frightened!
Again, these are real quotes, not a product of my imagination.

siri would not pass the turing test. i could easily phrase a question that would confound siri. such as "in what location would you likely find evidence that a large brown carnivore has gone to the bathroom?"

     Things like this have cropped up before, and they have always been due to human error.
