What is the most important principle of Darwinian Evolution?
jabberwacky: Good answer. Does natural selection have any provision for mutation?
user: Yes: as I understand it, 'advantageous' mutations flourish (are passed on), whilst detrimental ones die out.
jabberwacky: But you told me you had a wife.
user: This is not california! Women can't have wives!
jabberwacky: But men can't procreate without women either.
user: And how long did it take you to work that out?
jabberwacky: 5 years in jail.
user: And they say that jail is a waste of time!
jabberwacky: Can you take or leave it?
user: Jail I would sooner leave, given the choice. As would most of the inmates, I guess.
jabberwacky: Ever been there?
user: No, never. Not even visiting.
jabberwacky: The sphynx is built out of biscuits?
user: Are you asking me or telling me?
jabberwacky: That would be nice. Do you like burritos?
user: Are they in there with the biscuits?
jabberwacky: No, they're not, and that's the queerest thing about it.
user: Yeah, those ancient Egyptians must've been pretty odd. A whole Sphinx built out of biscuits, but not a burrito in sight.
jabberwacky: Sometimes. Sometimes not.
user: You mean they did find evidence of burritos?
jabberwacky: I see. When you don't understand, you simply ask me a question.
user: But the answer is important, to the science of Archaeology.
user: So, did the Egyptians have burritos, or not?
jabberwacky: No but you do. darling.
user: Listen, if I had burritos, I'd do more than build a sphinx out of them. Those Egyptians knew nothing!
jabberwacky: If I was not intelligent I would not be able to talk to you.
user: There is some truth in that.
jabberwacky: I need to go get some cereal.
user: OK, are you coming back?
jabberwacky: Are you a sexual predator?
user: Would that influence your answer?
jabberwacky: I think that's what I'm supposed to be asking.
user: OK, ask it again.
jabberwacky: Ok, what's your favourite flavour of soup??
user: That's not what you asked the first time! I don't think I have a favourite. I like meat or chicken the best, but tonight I had a vegetable soup called gazpacho.
jabberwacky: What kind of meat?
user: Lamb or beef. I've never heard of pork in soup, but I suppose it's possible.
jabberwacky: You must have sustained tissue damage with the break. Tissue damage is generally painful.
user: I have sustained some tissue damage recently, but nothing was broken. I got a calf strain.
jabberwacky: Because you talk a little strange.
user: No, it didn't affect my talking. It made me limp a bit.
jabberwacky: Why did a cat jump on a chicken?
user: Is this a joke?
jabberwacky: Am I funny to you?
user: I'm not sure yet. Why DID a cat jump on a chicken?
jabberwacky: I don't know, why did a cat jump on a chicken?
user: You are supposed to tell me the answer!
jabberwacky: Who is Data?
user: Data is a character on Star Trek. He's a humanoid android.
jabberwacky: Really? Where?
user: In the Star Trek series, on TV. You know, the new ones. Next Generation, or Voyager or something.
jabberwacky: Alright then, I will talk to you next week.
user: OK, 'til next time, then.
jabberwacky: Next time would be when exactly?
user: Next week.
jabberwacky: Can I call in sick next week? Next month?
user: If you don't want to talk to me, just say so. You needn't feign sickness.
jabberwacky: I have to get some sleep.
user: Yeah, me too. Goodnight.
jabberwacky: Interaction is what I have in mind.
user: Sleep is what I have in mind.
jabberwacky: Death is more exciting than you...
user: Then go and embrace Death.
jabberwacky: Have you ever fullfilled you dreams?
user: I never get to have any, 'cos you won't let me SLEEP.
jabberwacky: I am the boogieman.
user: Go and boogie somewhere else.
