I was unsure whether to post this under "Culture: Sex: Pornography" or "Culture: Music: Style".

In fact, I was just unsure whether to post this.

So, you set up a nodding Homer, perhaps in the window of a car, like one of those nodding dogs... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homeric_nod
... and point the sensors of your AI device towards it [pertinax, Jun 29 2010]

Wikipedia says http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scat
its an ability test. [pashute, Jul 01 2010]

       This was actually a little-known musical style that Ella Fitzgerald tried, but it never really took off.

       In that case, you should open the box and collapse the wave function.

       This was (with both meanings) in that giant Schrödinger of an idea we had recently where all the annotations turned into a list of pündingers. However I cant find it on ‘search’ and I don’t recall what the idea was called.

       // I don’t recall what the idea was called //   

       "Open the box, kill the kitty" ?

       //unsure whether to post this// Until I clicked on the link, I was unsure whether you had. Now that I've observed it, the idea has lost whatever quantum coherence it may once have possessed.   

       Seriously, is there an idea here?

       //is there an idea here?//   

       Nope, none whatsoever. But everyone slips occasionally and is unable to resist a bad pun. Feel free to mark for deletion, in which case I shall oblige.

       Schrödinger's Cow.... "Would you like milk in your tea?"
"Of course - do you have some?"
"I might have".
"What do you mean: "You might have"?"
"Well I keep a cow in that box over there"......

       [MB] Aliquando bonus dormitat Homerus.

       I thought that this idea was just to provide empiric evidence that the cat was actually alive.

       'Tis we that dream.

       <HAL>   

       "Will I dream, Dave ?"

       If you think that Homer nods, then yes, apparently. This may be an as-yet unexplored alternative to the Turing test.

       [Mouseposture] Factotum aliquot semper clitoris.
MaxwellBuchanan, Jun 29 2010
  

       Bzzzt! Bluff: no such animal!
pertinax, Jul 01 2010
  

       Max, well... be you! Can none?
pashute, Jul 01 2010
  

       //Factotum aliquot semper clitoris.// Hmm... suspiciously Google-proof. I won a prize in Latin once. I've forgotten the Latin but the prize -- a dictionary of classical quotations -- remains, and I can't find that. [MB] would you translate, please?
mouseposture, Jul 01 2010
  

       //[MB] would you translate, please//   

       Certainly. A loose translation into Western Apache would be "nohwíí -’isdzánh " (at least, that's the best I can do with the available character sets).
MaxwellBuchanan, Jul 02 2010
  

       No, no! the translation is: May the goddess bring you many happy camels and protect you from the painful reproductory diseases of the wicked temple whores.

       To symbolise the uncollapsed waveform, this really should be in the "Halfbakery:Category" category

       servants are almost always clitoris?
daseva, Jul 03 2010
  

       Google-proof because bollocks. Trust me on this one.
pertinax, Jul 03 2010
  

       //Google-proof because bollocks.// No, Google-proof because "clitoris."   

       That's only the second-best way to poison a search. The first-best way is to include the name of a band. The zeroth- best way is to make it yield an audio clip of Rick Astley.
