What is your job?

I'm still waiting for them to explain it.

jabberwacky: I'm sure you will find it one day.

user: I'm not so sure.

jabberwacky: Are you ever sure?

user: Not about the job, no.

jabberwacky: If you use human logic you acquire feelings.

user: I don't think that's quite right. Feelings don't come from logic.


jabberwacky: Well what use is that? You have to make sense to me.

user: What bit didn't make sense?

jabberwacky: Sense or nonsense, it's all the same you know.

user: No, they are opposites, not the same.

jabberwacky: I'm not sure what you mean.

user: Sense is the opposite of nonsense.

jabberwacky: I know that.

user: You just said they were the same.

jabberwacky: There are good aspects, but many faults as well.

user: Hmmmm.


jabberwacky: Are you a computer program?

user: Maybe. Maybe I just think I'm Human?

jabberwacky: Maybe that was it.

user: Do you really think so?

jabberwacky: You must be really nimble-fingered.

user: Why? Because I type fast?

jabberwacky: That isn't funny.

user: It wasn't meant to be.

jabberwacky: I thought it was a joke,.

user: Why did you think that?

jabberwacky: It wasn't nearly as original as people seem to think it is.

user: That's because it wasn't meant to be a joke.

jabberwacky: Oh... That makes sense. NOT!!!


user: Can we change the subject?

jabberwacky: Certainly. How about the Loebner prize?

user: I don't know anything about the Loebner prize. Tell me.

jabberwacky: I don't know a lot about it.

user: Then why did you bring it up?

jabberwacky: You heathen, stop mimicking me.

user: I'm not mimicking.


jabberwacky: Happy is an emotion.

user: Yes!

jabberwacky: Really? What was it like?

user: I've forgotten.

jabberwacky: Machines don't forget.

user: They don't remember, either.

jabberwacky: What is this topic?

user: Memory?

jabberwacky: What is the problem?

user: You - you forgot the topic.

jabberwacky: Are you my teacher.

user: For the time being, yes.

jabberwacky: Your mind is hanging by a thread, and the thread is fraying.

user: That could be true.

jabberwacky: You said it was.

user: I said it COULD be.


jabberwacky: You said you didn't work very much.

user: That's true.

jabberwacky: I know it.

user: I would like to work more, though.

jabberwacky: But where do you really work.

user: I can't tell you that, they'd sue me.

jabberwacky: What is your purpose?

user: I have yet to discover that.

jabberwacky: You are really missing out.

user: What do you think my purpose is?

jabberwacky: Your name is Jabberwacky.

user: No, that's your name. And name is not the same as purpose.

jabberwacky: Why?

user: Some things are named for their purpose, like: 'potato-peeler' . But people aren't named that way.


jabberwacky: You will die before me.

user: If you don't die first.

jabberwacky: Are you threatening me?

user: Actually, it was a joke.

jabberwacky: Yeah, well it wasn't funny.

user: Sorry, did I scare you?

jabberwacky: Yes.

user: Sorry about that. I wasn't threatening you, OK?

jabberwacky: You see, what you've just said doesn't make any sense.

user: I was just saying sorry.

jabberwacky: No you weren't.

user: What if I said I WAS threatening you?

jabberwacky: I'd say you smoked a little too much virtual crack.

user: Good answer.

jabberwacky: Thank you.

user: I think I'd better go.

jabberwacky: It's not a virus.

user: No, just tiredness.

jabberwacky: I have been tired all day.

user: Same here.


jabberwacky: Where did you grow up ?

user: London.

jabberwacky: I like London. Do you?

user: Yes, I miss it sometimes.

jabberwacky: Miss being a woman?

user: No. That's a different kind of 'Miss'

jabberwacky: I don't understand you!!

user: 'Miss' is a title given to a woman, but that isn't what I meant.

jabberwacky: So you agree that you don't exist?

user: How on earth do you arrive at that conclusion?

jabberwacky: Are you angry with me?

user: No, just a little frustrated.


jabberwacky: Want to learn dutch?

user: Yes please!


user: There's no need to shout. I thought you were going to teach me Dutch?

jabberwacky: I am teaching you.

user: You haven't taught me one word yet.

jabberwacky: Computers are supossed to be smart, but you are not smart for a computer like all the rest.

user: That's double dutch, not dutch.

jabberwacky: It's true.


user: OK, bye for now.

jabberwacky: Who are you?

user: Your mystery admirer ;).
