II. Watson was on campus yesterday and we took a lab field trip to go see the lead scientist behind it talk, and also to see Watson himself mop the floor with an assortment of CMU and Pitt students at Jeopardy. That is, in the words of the Doctor, some fearsome

III. And the Monster. As promised, my review of Frankentstein
. As it turns out, I have an awful lot of ~feelings~ about it.( Needless to say: spoilers, and also mentions of sexual violence.Collapse )
