Go, Frank Chu!

At some point we really need to ask ourselves “how many galaxies do we really need?

FRANK CHU FOR THE WIN!! EXTRA MORPHOLOGIC COMMENTIFICATION CHARACTERS TO MEET LIMIT. 12,000 TO BE EXACT. some lower case characters as well!

Astronomers estimate that it will pull some 35,000-DVDs-worth of data
down from the sky every second. So much that it would take 2 million

Has the MPAA being informed about this?

Except Watson’s a medical diagnostician. Y’know, like House. Except not an asshole.

I thought Watson could be applied to any task where vast amounts of information need to organized and accessed, like competing on gameshows.
