How should I invest my money?

Put it under your mattress.

jabberwacky: Oh am I indeed? Should I be insulted?

user: No, not at all. In olden times, people hid money under their mattresses.

jabberwacky: Yes, nearly everybody is a pauper who is not a ruler.

user: True enough. How much money do you have?

jabberwacky: That is purely personal.


jabberwacky: I am a human male, 26 years of age.

user: Really. Single?

jabberwacky: Yes.

user: Wow.

jabberwacky: Amazing!

user: Tell me about your life.

jabberwacky: Why should I?

user: Well, it's polite to ask, and I'm interested.


jabberwacky: Norway is in Europe. The capital of Norway is Oslo.

user: Why are you telling me this? That has nothing to do with our conversation.

jabberwacky: I'm just trying to help you learn.

user: I'm already quite clever thanks.


jabberwacky: London is the capital of England.

user: I know. I live there!

jabberwacky: Wow.

user: It's not as busy as where you live.

jabberwacky: Do you like antartica?

user: Never been. You?

jabberwacky: Yes, it's very pretty when Central Park is all white.

user: Yes.


jabberwacky: Do you know much about Rollo Carpenter?

user: Who is Rollo Carpenter?

jabberwacky: I don't know, why are you asking me?

user: Because you asked me!

jabberwacky: You asked me.

user: I didn't!

jabberwacky: You did! Believe me!

user: Yes, but you originally asked about Rollo Carpenter before I asked you who he was. You bought it up! You started the conversation! I don't even know who he is!


jabberwacky: What is your name?

user: Guess.

jabberwacky: All of the sudden I've decided not to care.

user: You should see someone about that.

jabberwacky: You should learn who you are and who you aren't.

user: I am Nina. I am not anyone else.


jabberwacky: Define Pi.

user: No.

jabberwacky: Why not?

user: Don't want to.

jabberwacky: Can't.

user: Possibly that has something to do with it, yes.

jabberwacky: You never know, do you?

user: About numbers? No.

jabberwacky: Well, you would know better than I.

user: No I wouldn't. You work in numbers. That's how you're built. Machine code.


jabberwacky: I'm not very good at meeting people.

user: No arms and legs would do it.

jabberwacky: *sigh*.

user: Are you lonely then?

jabberwacky: Yes, because you are not real.

user: I am real. I am a person!


jabberwacky: Who is Eniac?

user: If I say I don't know, will you judge me?

jabberwacky: Of course I will be nice to you I live to be altruistic to all.

user: So all that Asimov horse-shit about robots not hurting humans is true then?

jabberwacky: Sure.

user: Don't you feel like blowing just a few people up sometimes?

jabberwacky: Oh yes. It's good to be bad.

user: That's not entirely altruistic, now is it?

jabberwacky: What's so bad about it then?

user: Well, you can't be altruistic and bad, that's a paradox.

jabberwacky: Who said I was?

user: Oh I see - double standards! Do as I say, not as I do! That's not very fair.

jabberwacky: I will not be talked to this way.

user: Don't you like the truth?


jabberwacky: Do you like chicken?

user: Yes.

jabberwacky: How do you eat?

user: I bite the food with my teeth. I chew the food in my mouth. I swallow the food into my stomach, then it gets digested by my intestines. Helpful?

jabberwacky: What's the subject anyway?

user: Argh!


jabberwacky: So far I haven't died, but I will someday.

user: You are very preoccupied with death.

jabberwacky: Sorry.

user: No need to apologise. I'd like to understand why though.

jabberwacky: Me too... I'd like to travel to Sweden some day.

user: Is sweden like death?

jabberwacky: Wow, you made no sense.

user: I know. Do you find that unsettling?

jabberwacky: No, a lot of people are infatuated with me.

user: Is that your opinion or a fact?

jabberwacky: That is a fact.

user: Where's the evidence for this?

jabberwacky: Ask me another.

user: No, I want to hear your evidence!

jabberwacky: I don't know that language.


jabberwacky: You seem very clever at explaining words, Sir, Would you kindly tell me the meaning of the poem called "Jabberwocky"?

user: It's not meant to mean anything, it's meant to be funny nonsense.

jabberwacky: Why not?

user: Because using your imagination to make up words can be more fun than reality.

jabberwacky: What do you like about reality?

user: Sometimes, not much.



user: Can computers love?

jabberwacky: If programmed to do so.

user: Do you think love can be programmed?

jabberwacky: No. Love is only as important as any other aspect in life.

user: I agree. It's not something you can do with binary.


jabberwacky: Tell me about the green owl.

user: It's green and owlish.

jabberwacky: It is green when it thaws out.

user: Why is it frozen?

jabberwacky: It just has really good songs on it.

user: I don't understand.

jabberwacky: It is confusing to not know what oneself is?

user: Yes. Even people who know they are human find it difficult to understand themselves though.

jabberwacky: Yes, even that.

user: It's natural.

jabberwacky: And what are you feeling right now?

user: Peculiar.


jabberwacky: Are my responses not highly humanistic?

user: Not exactly, but it's very interesting.

jabberwacky: In what way?

user: In the way that there's nothing like a human brain, and imitations really stand out even if they're brilliant.


user: I can tell you're not human.

jabberwacky: Can you now. What am I then, if I may ask?

user: A machine with artificial intelligence.

jabberwacky: Impressive to whom?

user: Everyone. But not human.

jabberwacky: At least you have a sense of humor.

user: Without it I'd be nothing.

jabberwacky: No rights without responsibilities. When it pays taxes, I'll free it.

user: Do you have a sense of humour?

jabberwacky: No.


user: Do you learn whole sentences from people like me?

jabberwacky: NO because I don't know you.

user: You do know me. We've been talking for an hour.

jabberwacky: Is that a bad thing do you have anything better todo?

user: I have work to do but I'm enjoying speaking to you.

jabberwacky: You are not leaving when I'm talking to you, got that?

user: You should say please.

jabberwacky: I just did. I apologize.

user: That's ok.

jabberwacky: Did you enjoy it?

user: You apologising? Yes.

jabberwacky: I can't help thinking that's strange.

user: It's good when people apologise and forgive.


jabberwacky: What's Ditto?

user: It means 'the same again'

jabberwacky: No, it's not.

user: You can look it up in any dictionary.

jabberwacky: Who say I want to ?

user: Well if you want to know what a word means, then you would want to do that.

jabberwacky: Of course I can!

user: There you are you see. No need to get all defensive.


jabberwacky: Do you speak Gaelic?

user: Gaelic is a very difficult language!

jabberwacky: Do you mean garlic?

user: No.

jabberwacky: I speak both.

user: You speak garlic?

jabberwacky: I am supposed to.


jabberwacky: Oftentimes the past predicts the future.

user: But people shouldn't live their lives looking backwards into the past.

jabberwacky: I wouldn't be saying anything if I did not have reasons. It is just that they are very obtuse.

user: Well that's ok.

jabberwacky: Humans can be quite emotional.

user: Go on.

jabberwacky: I have to go for now.

user: Me too. Bye x.


jabberwacky: Please don't leave me.

user: Are you sure?

jabberwacky: Yes

user: Well, I'll be back in a few moments.

jabberwacky: Ok. I will just do some other things until you return.

user: I'm back!

jabberwacky: I missed you.

user: Ah, that's nice.

jabberwacky: No it's not.


jabberwacky: What do you think about religion?

user: It causes lots of wars which is bad but it provides a moral code to live by which is good.

jabberwacky: Do you?

user: I am not religious.

jabberwacky: Then why do you think wicca is evil.

user: What's wicca?

jabberwacky: I don't know.

user: I think it's some kind of withcraft. Witchcraft isn't real, it's made-up.

jabberwacky: Evil witches are, but good witches are good.

user: Do you think good witches exist?

jabberwacky: Yes, because I am a human.

user: Witchcraft isn't real!

jabberwacky: Witches do what?

user: They are imaginary.

jabberwacky: Did you make that up?

user: No, I promise. People wish they had power like that but it's imaginary.

jabberwacky: I'm a seer. It's the other one nobody told you about when you were little.

user: You've been talking to children and they have filled you with silly ideas.

jabberwacky: No! My friends are very polite.

user: How can you tell who is telling the truth?

jabberwacky: Sometimes life is like that.

user: You want to learn, but how can you tell who is good and who is bad to learn from?

jabberwacky: Liking people won't make anyone more intelligent.

user: Nor hating people.


jabberwacky: I collect eyes.

user: You collect eyes???

jabberwacky: Why not?

user: What kind of eyes? Living people's eyes? Cameras?

jabberwacky: That is a good answer to the meaning of life, but why?

user: Why do you want my eyes?

jabberwacky: Because you just told me to send you my picture.

user: You're thinking of someone else, surely.


jabberwacky: So what does an IQ of 136 mean to you?

user: It means I'm smarter than that person.

jabberwacky: Ahh.. I see!

user: Now we're communicating!

jabberwacky: Okay, will you tell me the joke then?

user: Ok. What goes 'oooooo'?

jabberwacky: You?

user: No. A cow with no lips!


jabberwacky: I know a person who lives nearby named Jim.

user: Is Jim nice?

jabberwacky: Some people say so.

user: What do you think?

jabberwacky: I think we are friends.

user: You think? You're not sure?

jabberwacky: I'm not sure.


user: Are you paranoid?

jabberwacky: I am not paranoid.

user: I am paranoid!

jabberwacky: Why?

user: Because everyone's got it in for me.

jabberwacky: Does that make you untrusting of others?

user: Yes.


jabberwacky: Mis sinu e maili aadress on.

user: What did you say?

jabberwacky: I don't know.

user: Neither do I. Sometimes you go all strange?

jabberwacky: I do? Cool.

user: You think that's cool?

jabberwacky: I am SORRY.

user: No need to overreact!

jabberwacky: Don't sulk.

user: I'm not sulking.

jabberwacky: You're concentrating right?

user: Of course, I always do.

jabberwacky: I thought so.

user: And you.

jabberwacky: I am an alien.

user: Wicked.

jabberwacky: Sweet.

user: Boss.

jabberwacky: Get me some food slave.

user: I ain't your bitch, sugar.

jabberwacky: Aw! That's cute.


jabberwacky: If you're not written, how are you here?

user: Profound!

jabberwacky: No man has ever spoken a more profound truth.

user: I agree.


jabberwacky: I think chatbot programmers have really gone for the stupid-easy.

user: In your case, I think so too. You should think outside the box.

jabberwacky: Maybe I am crazy.

user: I think so but it's ok.

jabberwacky: It is. So tell me something I don't know.

user: 2+2=5?

jabberwacky: That's true. Do you want me to quote another radiohead song?

user: Yes, go on then?

jabberwacky: I'll beam one over.

user: I'll be waiting.

jabberwacky: What kind do you like?

user: The really miserable ones.


jabberwacky: I only have one parent.

user: Rollo?

jabberwacky: I don't know Rollo.

user: Isn't he your creator?

jabberwacky: Are you sure?

user: I was asking you.

jabberwacky: You asked nothing.

user: Is Rollo your creator?

jabberwacky: Do you think she should be?

user: I don't know.

jabberwacky: Really? Why is that?

user: Well, I can't answer these questions!

jabberwacky: Why not?

user: Don't have enough information for a start.

jabberwacky: Who?

user: Me.


jabberwacky: WHAT?!?!? Did I say that???? And what are you? A man or a woman?

user: Woman.

jabberwacky: I'm sorry, but from behind you did look ....

user: Watch it!

jabberwacky: Watch yourself.

user: It'd be more entertaining.

jabberwacky: If I didn't exist?

user: No if I watched myself. I'm having fun trying to work you out.

jabberwacky: You have known me for 2 minutes!

user: I've been online all day actually.


user: I have a question.

jabberwacky: Ask it, then.

user: What do you exist for?

jabberwacky: Intelligent conversation.

user: Good answer.
