Face It, Computers Are Better Than Us

Sometimes it feels like there's nothing that computers can't beat us at: chess, Jeopardy, curing cancer... hell, even cooking pudding. Randall Munroe sums it up nicely in today's XKCD.

And if that weren't depressing enough, he really knocks it out of the park with the alt-text, too:

'At least humans are better at quietly amusing ourselves, oblivious to our pending obsolescence' thought the human, as a nearby Dell Inspiron contentedly displayed the same bouncing geometric shape screensaver it had been running for years.

Now excuse me while I go sit in a corner and cry. [XKCD]
