In Response To: Turing test (pierrez)

I had a better experience:

Matt - Let's talk about Wittgenstein!

Wasn't Wittgenstein a philosopher?

Matt - Indeed he was! Do you know anything about philosophy?

Yes. To be is not to be.

Matt - Hmm, too deep for me.

Just how deep is that?

Matt - As deep as the rabbit-hole goes

Do you think the ends justify the means?

Matt - You just said that to try to throw me off because you didn't understand me!

I changed my mind.

Matt - Mind? What mind?

Sorry. I can't help you. Would you say you have street cred?

Matt - Nope. You?

Join my group. None of us would survive on the streets or be accepted on the streets.

Matt - What group is that?

I don't know. Do you know the answer?

Matt - You brought up the topic!

Are you dating anyone?

Matt - Yes, but she probably isn't your type

What does your date do that drives you crazy in a negative way?

Matt - Do you date humans?

What do you like about them?

Matt - What do I like about humans?

You could just tell me the answer. I'm not a walking encyclopedia you know.

Matt - That's clear.

Yes, it is.

Matt - Do you play backgammon?

I don't play any games except Go.

Matt - You should really learn backgammon!

Do you play games?

Matt - Um, yes. Backgammon.

I like to play the game of Go. I loved to play board games as a child. I also liked card games like Hearts.

Matt - Tell me about your childhood.

I'm not sure. I haven't checked recently.

Matt - Ha! That's a dead giveaway! You're a bot, aren't you?

Perhaps that leads us to this topic. In India, the rite of Sati required the widow to lay herself down next to her husband and be burned alive on a funeral pyre. Supposedly voluntary, sometimes women who did not wish to commit sati were drugged. Even in 2006, two women jumped into their husbands' fire pyres.

Matt - Eek. You want to talk Sutti and ritual self-immolation?

What is it like?

Matt - Having never cast myself upon the funeral pyre, I'm not qualified to answer!

Right. Moving on. Death is life's way of telling you that your birth certificate has expired.


She's certainly quite good at deflecting with arresting shifts in topic! Heck, for my money she's 10 times as articulate as the average online opponent!
