Amazing Facts About IBM’s Cat Computer


IBM said it has already simulated a cat-sized cerebral cortex — the area of the brain that’s key to memory, attention, and consciousness — using a massive Blue Gene supercomputer at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California.

Let me know if it screws with your dreams like the cats I’ve dealt with.

When I cat sat for a friend, I once had the same nightmare over several days of being John Hurt’s character from the movie Alien (of something bursting out of my chest) while being set on fire in a fur suit. It wasn’t till I realized that it was cause the cats liked to sleep on my chest and occasionally used it as a scratching post.

I will see your cat brain and raise you a worm phaser

Researchers have now found a way to paralyse tiny worms when they expose them to ultraviolet light.
Even when the ultraviolet light was turned off the animals stayed stunned.
However, if they were subsequently exposed to a different form of light they recovered again and were able to move.

They might do better trying to recreate a Republican brain. It would be smaller and less complex.

IBM forgot the part showing up the minute you sit down to dinner, padding over to the cat box to take a massive, grimacing shit and wafting the fumes at you with their tail.
