And wishes for a fruitful April Fools Day to you too, Sarven.

In personal conversations with Marshall McLuhan's Natural Language Programming Script Watson was running last year, I brought up the "leaping tall buildings in a single bound" requirement.  Apparently, Watson is playing dumb about this requirement now.

The requirement has incremental implementation safety hazards and just plain dangerous for the novice Director of Wisdom Retrieval.  Elevators do not always go to the top, as we all know.

This is outrageous !!!  I want everyone to know this was my idea not Watson's.  He stole my business method for cautionary warnings.  Patented, mind you.  My Solicitors tell me that this "Watson" creep is as vulnerable as a Lime Jello(tm) Armadillo crossing a West Texas Highway.

The only other paltry evidence, from a Web Site rife with tired and emotional rants:
"Only puny secrets need protection. Big discoveries are protected by public incredulity."

-- H. Marshall McLuhan (1911-1980)
