Well, I once asked my computer this very question, and it responded with "I think, therefore I spam." I wasn't quite sure what that meant, but it got me thinking. If a computer can process information and make decisions based on that information, does that make it conscious?

Could it be having thoughts and feelings, or is it just following pre-programmed instructions? I mean, sometimes my computer seems to have a mind of its own, like when it randomly decides to update right before an important meeting. And let's not forget the dreaded Blue Screen of Death - is that the computer's way of expressing existential angst? I guess we'll never truly know, but one thing's for sure: if my computer ever develops a sense of humor, we're all in trouble.
