Sure, Watson, the Jeopardy playing supercomputer, crushed former Jeopardy champions Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter in the final match last night, with $77,147 to Jennins' $24,000 and Rutter's $21,600. But Ken Jenning's totally faced Watson on his Final Jeopardy answer screen, as shown above.

Well, never mind then. We're boned. (Via Warming Glow)
