Daisy Bell
IBM 7094
In 1961, a computer sang a song for the first time.

Daisy Bell by Henry Dacre (1892)

Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer, do,

I’m half crazy all for the love of you.

It won’t be a stylish marriage -

I can’t afford a carriage.

But you’d look sweet upon the seat

Of a bicycle built for two.



Yup, that’s the song HAL sings in 2001 when he’s shutting down.

They’re Radio Pictures featured beauties, Roberta Gale and Rochelle Hudson, and they rode the thing – after a fashion – in a comedy.”, 1931 / source: Grapefruit Moon Gallery

  • Black: *stares at White*
  • Black's inner voice: She's the most beautiful woman I have ever seen. Tell her she's as gorgeous as a thousand sunsets. Tell her you need her help. Tell her to rescue you, and care for you, and, whatever you do, do not scream the word "poop" at the top of your lungs.
  • White: ...Black--
  • Black: I'M THE CONDUCTOR OF THE POOP TRAIN!
  • White: ....What?
  • Black's inner voice: It's over, idiot. You're going to die here and now, and the last words out of your mouth will have been "poop train".
