Last night, five members of Congress thought it would be fun to stage a trivia challenge against Watson -- the IBM supercomputer that made the world feel stupid
last month on 'Jeopardy!'. As it did brainiacs Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter, Watson absolutely bulldozed its Congressional competition -- with one notable exception. Rep. Rush Holt, a New Jersey Democrat, actually defeated the machine
by 2,400 points, as cheers of "Go Humanity!" rained down from the audience. It should be noted, though, that Holt happens to be a five-time 'Jeopardy!' champ. Oh, and he's a nuclear physicist, too.
