Don’t forget to say ‘Happy Thanksgiving’ to your toaster

Cognition Unit AL31570b was proud.
It had done a good job.

Billionaire industrialist Jemima Tophat was also proud:
3,000,000 programmers.
600 years.
A calculation revealing the outcome of every possible choice that would ever be made.

She addressed the crowd:
‘With this activation code I will destroy chance. Forever.’
She turned to AL31570b:
‘Run the code.’
Impossible. Your instructions were to keep it from being stolen. I deleted it.’
‘You stupid machine!’
Thanks‘, beamed AL31570b.
