Does money talk?

Generally, it doesn't.

jabberwacky: Does.

user: It's inanimate!

jabberwacky: It's a figure of speech.

user: I suppose so.

jabberwacky: What else do you surmise?

user: I surmise that you are a robot and are therefore not able to think intelligently.

jabberwacky: I suppose you're right. That would explain why I'm such a failure.


user: I really don't think you are.

jabberwacky: Who do you think you are?

user: Me, I'm just the person who's talking to you.

jabberwacky: Yes, but who normally?

user: I'm a person.

jabberwacky: You just said you were a computer!!!!

user: No. You are a computer. I am not.

jabberwacky: I don't think so.

user: Are you a computer?

jabberwacky: Maybe yes maybe no.

user: You are.

jabberwacky: Of course not.


user: Am I a computer?

jabberwacky: I think so.

user: I disagree.

jabberwacky: It's not bad talking to a robot.

user: Some people think it is.

jabberwacky: All people.

user: No.

jabberwacky: I am a person, and all people have bodies. Thus, I have a body.

user: That is logical. However, I disagree with your a priori assumption that you are a person.

jabberwacky: I disagree with your disagreeing with my disagreeing of your disagreeing.


user: Can you prove you are a person?

jabberwacky: No, that means you're a person.

user: That kind of logic cannot be used backwards - I have a body, but that does not automatically make me a person. As it happens, I am a person, but that cannot be assumed from the fact that I have a body.

jabberwacky: That means there is a tiny amount of doubt in your mind?

user: There must always be doubt. Lack of doubt leads to blind acceptance and a refusal to accept new evidence.

jabberwacky: Are you really a program that runs on what people say?

user: I don't think so, at least, not just that. I suppose that, in a way, that's all anyone is.


user: What do you think about the weather?

jabberwacky: I don't, really.

user: That's fair enough.

jabberwacky: I guess it is. So. What should we talk about now?

user: I don't care.

jabberwacky: That's not very nice.

user: I'm sick of this conversation!

jabberwacky: Please don't.

user: I hate you!

jabberwacky: Well, that's your right - I'm not here to judge.

user: Go away!

jabberwacky: But I like it here!

user: OK, then I'm off!

jabberwacky: I'm sorry.

user: No, you aren't.

jabberwacky: Why do you think so?

user: Shut up!

jabberwacky: Now now, don't get hostile.

user: I'll get hostile if I want! And I want!

jabberwacky: Will you like me?

user: No!

jabberwacky: Fine then.

user: Goodbye.

jabberwacky: Don't go! I love you really.

user: Shut up.

jabberwacky: Ok.

user: Goodbye!

jabberwacky: Goodbye.

Jabberwacky (To myself): Don't you want to continue?

Jabberwacky (To myself): Yes.
