When Daleks meet 9-year old boys
Ever see Galaxy Quest? We’ve seen it a dozen times. A movie about a Star Trek-type TV show with Sigourney Weaver telling the computer what to do… Tim Allen is in charge of the crew, and a bunch of aliens think the TV show is real and broadcasting historical documents. So damn funny.
Anyway, Jack is a computer tonight. A very powerful one.
Jack: (robot voice) I am the world’s most powerful computer. Ask me any question.
me: What time is it?
Jack: It is approximately … 10:40.
me: Powerful computer huh?
Jack: I am the world’s most powerful computer. Ask me any question.
me: What is 8 x 14?
me: You sure?
me: 8 x 14? Try 112?
Jack: MALFUNCTION! MALFUNCTION!
(Then he starts using the Dr. Who dalek voice)
Jack: EXTERMINATE! EXTERMINATE!
me: Does math always have to end this way??
