Once in a while, you come across a reassuring piece of news which proves that computers will never replace humans. Call it innovativeness - or just plain lunacy - but we humans are in a different zone that even the most advanced technology cannot replicate.
This latest revolutionary concept was spawned, unwittingly, by something as mundane as a government survey. The Australian state of Queensland does not make condoms available to male prisoners; unlike the neighboring state of New South Wales. So a survey was carried out, involving 900 male prisoners. The high minded purpose of the survey was to "provide a critical benchmark in developing a range of sexual health policies." That's a direct quote from the Executive Director of Queensland's Offender Programs and Services.
Trouble was the bloody low minded prison inmates didn't get it. As part of the survey, the jail authorities distributed free condoms to them - and just to break the monotony - some of the condoms were flavored. So what did the Aussie jailbirds do? For one thing, they did not use the prophylactics for the purpose they were intended. Maybe real Ozzie blokes prefer to do it au naturel; who knows? What they did do was to use the condoms to flavor their milk.
I'm not making this up, honest. And I defy any genius to invent a robot that can simulate that kind of logic.
