Deep Blue makes Kasparov cry

May 11, 1997, super computer IBM "Deep Blue", named after the computer's love for the ocean, beat world chess champion Garry Kasparov in a 6 game match, consisting of 2 wins, 1 loss, and three draws.  Kasparov said "Deep Blue" was cheating and making eyes at him the whole time, but IBM dismantled the machine soon afterwards, purely for gloating rights and a lot of cash.  

Kasparov soon fell into deep depression, became addicted to doughnut holes, started luddite internet groups (he didn't care how ironic it was), and built his own super computer.  

When he really got down, he just had to dance:  

Technology had become his life.  He now looks like this.
