Thank fuck someone else thinks this. It's not AI. 'I' - intelligence - is comprehension and perception. machines in their current for cannot comprehend information, they just take a set of data in, apply a set of rules or processes to it, and output a result. Machines don't understand what they're doing. Seriously, I wish pepople would grow up.

I am a relative newcomer to Seattle, and there is a lot of opposition to the head tax from the general public.

So, in the world of RegUnits (TM), how do we distinguish between the already exalted term of boffin, and superboffin? What extra feat of boffinry do you need to commit to climb the scale of boffinism? Are there additional levels - ultraboffin? Uberboffin?
This has put far too much doubt and confusion into my already fragile world.
