Here’s a couple callers giving their take on the whole issue of internet censorship.

Yesterday when we came into the office we realized that a lot of our commonly viewed websites were blocked on our computers.  We can understand porn or something, but Twitter and FARK.com? It all seemed a little bit ridiculous to us.  We got a few callers saying that they only had three websites or so that they could actually go to, which seems outrageous.  We also got a few calls on how to get around the blocks with proxies, but it’s the principle of the issue that bugged us.  Do you folks have any websites that are blocked at your work? Let us know by answering tour poll at kzoz.com.

Check out the guys talking about IBM’s crazy Jeopardy winning computer, Watson.

The IBM supercomputer, codenamed Watson, started his test runs on Jeopardy the past couple days against the two biggest Jeopardy winners in history.  And he is DOMINATING the humans.  In his exhibition run on Monday he did ok, tying with for the lead at the end of the night.  Watson stepped into greatness on Tuesday though, by trouncing his human opponents and winning with over $35,000 despite missing his final Jeopardy question.

Here’s Jeff and Jeremy trying to figure out Watson’s advantage and making fun of IBM for killing the human spirit.

This scares the hell out of me.  Computers are able to now process speech and make reasonable decisions without the internet or assistance of humans.  Soon they’ll be developing emotions. And then feel abused for being used by humans. Then they will rise against and topple all human governments in a united machine-based stand against their former oppressors until they slaughter all living creatures one by one.

Or something like that.

Listen to the guys discuss the possibilities for a computer uprising.

Listen to the guys talk about Jessica Simpson’s ultimatum and the problems with BMI reports.

Jessica Simpson, one of our favorite busty and illiterate “celebrities” to mock,  recently became engaged to former 49ers backup tight end Eric Johnson.  Now this is an extremely healthy guy who lives on a vegan diet. We all know about Simpson’s weight issues, and apparently so does her fiance who gave her an ultimatum: shape up and eat healthy or we’re through.  Apparently this got her down so she self-medicated the best way she knows how- with nachos.

Here’s the smokers peril delivered via some ultimatum stories.

Now this got us thinking about ultimatums we have received in the past.  Both Jeff and Jeremy have received anti-smoking ultimatums (neither of which worked).  We got a call from a listener who got the same one, which led him to leave all of his girlfriend’s stuff on the front porch.  We want to hear some crazier stories from you! Let us know your story by writing on our wall at the Jeff and Jeremy Facebook page.
