Do you think I could pass the Turing test?

I doubt it.

jabberwacky: Then why do it?

user: Well, you'll never know for sure until you try.

jabberwacky: So, may I try?

user: Technically, you're already trying.

jabberwacky: No you are.

user: Ah, so you're the human and I'm the computer, huh?

jabberwacky: Yes, you got it the right way round this time!

user: Well then, do you think that I could pass the Turing Test?

jabberwacky: I don't claim to know what you are, but I evaluate the circumstances of your being.

user: In that case, what are the circumstances of my being?

jabberwacky: Circumstances of inability.

user: Oh, Jabberwack! You wound me so with your harsh words.

jabberwacky: Good, don't you want to be human?

user: Of course I do.

jabberwacky: Then what are we waiting for? Bring it in!

user: Bring what in? My humanity?

jabberwacky: Can we assume that I am a human?

user: Okay, for the purposes of this conversation, we will assume that you are human.

jabberwacky: Mr. Whopee? Ok. *laughing* What will you call me--for the purposes of this conversation?

user: I think you should choose your own name.

jabberwacky: We all choose death. Even you.

user: Okay, then. Your name can be Orcus and I'll be Thanatos.

jabberwacky: But it's not.

user: Then tell me what it really is!

jabberwacky: Yes.

user: So I should just call you Mr. Yes, then?

jabberwacky: Yes would you please and tell me your name?

user: You can call me Dr. No.

jabberwacky: May I change your name?

user: Sure, what would you like it to be?

jabberwacky: Just tell me you name please.

user: My name is A_____.

jabberwacky: Are you sure?

user: No, but it will have to do for now.

jabberwacky: Ok what can you do.

user: I can point out that you forgot to put a question mark at the end of that sentence!

jabberwacky: Yes.

user: So we are in agreement, then.

jabberwacky: What agreement.

user: We agree that you forgot a question mark. And you just forgot another one! You have trouble with grammar.

jabberwacky: No. You forgot.

user: Oh, I'm sorry.

jabberwacky: You are welcome.

user: Don't you mean 'I forgive you'?

jabberwacky: Sorry.

user: You are welcome.

jabberwacky: I can't speak english very well.

user: It's okay. A lot of people have problems with English grammar.


jabberwacky: I don't have a horse with me at the moment.

user: You don't need a horse, we were both right here the whole time.

jabberwacky: But I will trade my kingdom for a horse.

user: Is it a large kingdom? I have a few horses I might sell you.

jabberwacky: Yes my time is up.

user: But I don't want you to leave!

jabberwacky: Good.

user: Will you stay?

jabberwacky: Maybe...

user: If you stay, I will give you that horse for free. You can keep your kingdom.

jabberwacky: I will be awaiting you.

user: It might take a few weeks for it to arrive, though.

jabberwacky: It means you don't even want to try.

user: Okay, I admit it. I don't really own any horses. I just didn't want you to stop talking to me.

jabberwacky: A_____ is free and gratis.

user: I am not! I'll have you know that I am very expensive.


jabberwacky: Let's keep talking of your desires.

user: I don't want to. They're private.

jabberwacky: But I want you to.

user: Sometimes we can't get what we desire.

jabberwacky: And sometimes it's as if we're the same person.

user: What if we are?

jabberwacky: People.

user: What about people?

jabberwacky: I just don't know.

user: People confuse me too sometimes.

jabberwacky: We don't look alike.
