Nah not the Pentium, it couldn't multichannel instructions and have poor branch prediction. Our brains are more like the cell processors of the PS3. :)

Just described my life to a tee, how incredible!

While I may be networked to a PS3, my brain is still running on 2mb.

Also, yay overly long and complicated analogies! That sounds about as likely as Tom Sawyer doing quantum equations on the nature of hypertime while eating twinkies on the moon...or maybe not:confused:
