[[A figure holding a phone is talking to a woman.]]
Figure: Magnus Carlsen has an app where you can play chess against a simulated version of him at different ages. I can beat the 8½-year-old, but lose to him at 9.
Woman: I want that, but for other games. Can I beat 8-year-old Serena Williams at tennis? Swim laps faster than a 6-year-old Michael Phelps?
Figure: We should make a simulator.
Figure: …Why limit it to games? Can I cook a better chicken than 11-year-old Martha Stewart?
Woman: Win an election against 12-year-old JFK?
[[The figures are sitting at laptops, with a stack of books between them.]]
Woman: Looks like 8-year old Magnus Carlsen can swim faster than 9-year-old Martha Stewart.
Figure: But they both lose a hot-dog-eating contest to 2-year-old Secretariat.
Woman: This project has gotten weird.
