} No, he wuzn't.
}
} Fuzzy Wuzzy, born Wuzzy J. Bear, was a unique character. He was born
} in the 1950s in the Rocky Mountains near Gunnison, Colorado. As a cub,
} Wuzzy was the typical bear, eating berries, catching fish, hibernating
} in winter, etc. But it soon became apparent that Wuzzy was different
} than the other bears. He suffered from a rare condition which caused
} his fur to fall out, making him a notoftenseen bald bear. The other
} cubs teased him mercilessly for this and ostracized him from bear
} society. Wuzzy, alone in his cave, started exploring mathematics to
} pass the time.
}
} As he became a young adult bear, he spent more and more time exploring
} set theory by scratching on the ground with a stick or writing on his
} cave walls with a crude ink made from crushed berries. In the summer
} of 1964, Lotfi Zadeh was vacationing in the mountains, after months of
} struggling to come up with a new method for realtime system control.
} On a hike one afternoon, he happened across Wuzzy at the bank of a
} stream, who was at that point considering a new technique for handling
} ambiguity in computational systems, over a lunch of blueberries and
} trout. On observing Wuzzy's scratchings in the ground, Zadeh became
} quite taken with his theories. Zadeh extended his vacation by several
} months and from his collaboration with Wuzzy, the theory of Fuzzy Logic
} was born.
}
} Fuzzy Logic was attributed to Zadeh alone because both he and Wuzzy
} doubted that the mathematical world was ready for new theories
} developed by a bear. But to friends, Wuzzy did become known as "Fuzzy"
} Wuzzy. This new nickname inspired the famous rhyme about him, which
} was, incidentally, written by Lotfi Zadeh after too many beers one
} night:
}
} Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear,
} Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair!
} Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn't fuzzy, was he?
}
} With Zadeh's help, Wuzzy has been responsible for many recent advances
} in Fuzzy Logic and other modern AI systems. As a result of his
} consulting work he can now afford treatment for his fur condition, and
} his new fur growth makes him quite "fuzzy". He lives in Marin County,
} CA (where a bear with his own house does not seem out of place) with
} his wife and two cubs.
}
} Fuzzy Wuzzy wuzn't fuzzy. But he iz now.
}
} You owe the Oracle a fuzzy logicbased searchanddestroy robot, to
} track down and eliminate all existing videotapes of the "Roseanne"
} show.
