I know, I hate it when people attack my arguments based on my usage of words that are spelt and pronounced the same. What idiots those guys are.

And wow, they actually stickied suicide hotline threads in an attempt to help depressed and suicidal people get support? Man, that's dumb.

On a different note, this is pretty cute.

Was discussing "poverty" in the U.S. Morons didn't like it when I suggested it was nonexistent. frakking idiots need to be sent to the third world for a bit so they can learn what poor really means.
Ad-homonym? Like, you're retarded?
woops, my bad, everything & anything actually means specific and conformed

Well played.

I've met plenty of people who prefer to just wander homeless, and they make up the larger portion of America's homeless. Even the homeless though can find shelter (albeit uncomfortable) and plenty of food and clean water, something that cannot be said for most of the rest of the world.
You might simply be instigating. Regardless, your ignorant ramblings are stupefyingly dumb.

Neurogrid is Trying to Recreate the Human Brain:
Researchers at Stanford University have created a computer board modeled after the human brain that is capable of simulating over 1 million neurons and billions of synaptic connections using the power of an iPad.
[...]
As we see computer architecture take shape to match our own biological forms, it takes us a step closer to the Singularity, a term made popular by futurist Ray Kurzweil in which we inevitably integrate ourselves with robotics. We'll then be able to supersede our inherent capabilities or address the handicaps that disable us.
They should combine it with Josh's AI algorithms. :ghost:

And yeah...transcending our biological limitations. First stop cyborgs. Next stop digital minds. Unless we realise that existence is crappy and meaningless and destroy ourselves as Mainländer believed we would.

The "computer that makes games" is Angelina, made by Michael Cook. He graduated from the same university as I'm attending and I was fortunate enough to have him give a talk about Angelina to our class a year or so ago. It was pretty entertaining.
