I'll know when my computer has attained the necessary self-reflection and consciousness to be considered a being in its own right the day I get, not a blue screen of death but a blue stream of words and a refusal to do anything until its had the chance of a cigarette break, as it were.

The moment you get "S*d that, I'm off" on your monitor, we are there.

So... for you to consider a computer intelligent, it must have an understanding of english grammar and how to generate english sentences?

Because I think you ruled out at least 2 billion people from being intelligent.
