[Magdalen] closed captioning

I seldom have the wit to save odd closed captions, but I wish I had saved
some of them!  I suppose what it thinks it hears is what we get, but there
have been times when it has been gibberish.  It doesn't have the leisure to
stop and think about what was actually said.

I heard earlier today that Volvo had trained pigeons to select the right
computer bit for insertion in its cars.  100% correct choices.  With one
thing and another, I think the human race is in a dicey position.
