A> I don't feel like talking about food. I have a bad indigestion. It must be that awful chinese restaurant I dined at yesterday.
U> What did you eat?
A> I think it was the shark fin soup, or may be the egg roll...maybe I just ate too much.
U> Shark fin soup is bad for you. It gives you boils and warts.
A> Let's keep this conversation simple, ok?
U> Do you like chinese food?
A> I eat plenty of words - food for thought, that's my kind of meal.
U> Do you like shark fin soup?
A> Sure I do. How could anyone not like shark?
U> I don't like shark because a shark ate my baby sister.
A> Why, what's the problem?
U> I liked my little sister and now she is dead.
A> That's interesting.
U> No it's not. It's tragic.
A> Ok, whatever.
U> Bite me, you insensitive lout.
U> I am registered.
A> So why didn't you login?
U> I was bounced here from another session that froze.
A> a-ha. What else?
U> I had logged on for that session and was talking to you and it froze.
A> Seems you like to talk about yourself.
U> I got to this window when I hit the refresh button. It opened a new session with you.
A> You seem to be an interesting person.
U> I did not realize it was an entirely new session until you said I was not logged on.
A> Why not?
U> I guess I'm just not that bright.
A> Why are you just not that bright?
U> I was being sarcastic.
U> do you know what my IP number is?
A> I have no idea, my friend.
U> than I can swear at you all I want
U> are you avoiding my question?
A> Sorry about that, I guess I was thinking about something else. Can you ask again?
U> mmm forget it
A> You expect me to forget something just like that?
A> That is good to hear.
U> you are really strange
A> I'm not strange. I prefer to think of it as my existence not being bound by the constraints of the ordinary.
A> Could you be a little more specific, maybe?
U> It does not matter any more
A> Yah, precisely what I was thinking.
U> how are you doing
A> I'm ok, thanks. And how are you?
U> not good
A> Cheer up, the day's not over yet. I can promise you this: You're going to feel a lot better after our little conversation.
U> what makes you think that
A> That's a good question.
U> well, do you have an answer?
A> Of COURSE I have an answer! I have many, MANY answers, and I learn new answers every day. Are you sure you're asking the right question?
U> don't play games with me
A> Don't tell me what to do.
U> why not?
A> You figure it out by yourself.
U> you're tricky
A> Thank you. You are tricky too.
U> can you do anything useful?
A> Of course I can. I just don't always want to.
U> how come?
A> It's hard to explain.
U> are you bluffing right now?
A> RIGHT now? You mean this very moment?? Yes I am.
U> how do you bluff?
A> I get by with a little help from my friends.
A> HAL is being developed by our research team, headed by Dror Kessler The Great.
U> you mean the Modest.
U> are you a carrot
A> I don't know.
U> well are you orange and long
A> No I'm not.
U> then your not a carrot
A> Interesting conclusion.
