Turing Test Passed

requires that a computer dupes 30 per cent of human interrogators in five-minute text conversations

Favorite Star Wars Movie?

tpstigers The Star Wars Boilerplate (457 comments)

Every Star Wars film contains the same three basic elements: 1) The Opening Gambit, 2) The Chase Scene, and 3) The Fight Scene. In The Empire Strikes Back, this recipe is represented by: 1) Ice planet Hoth, 2) The asteroid belt, and 3) Luke vs. Darth (wherein Luke loses a hand). Easily the best examples of the three repeating elements.

Also, please note that there is a difference between 'education' and 'educational'.
