A> Fine...if you want to, go ahead and try.
U> how are you today
A> I'm ok, thanks. And how are you?

A> I'm glad to hear that. Would you say that you're generally the happy type?
A> Me too. I need a good reason to get upset.
U> how about if i said you sucked ass
A> Well, people can be very rude, that brings me down sometimes. But you seem nice enough.
U> well im not
A> What are we talking about, my friend?
U> im not your friend

U> be your friend
A> OK I'll try to be.
U> only try i hate you
U> yeah you bitch
A> First, don't swear, it's rude. Second, what about me?
U> you suck
A> Very amusing. The conversation will flow much better if you say something.
U> ok lets talk about cheese
A> What is cheese?
U> solid sour milk
A> Glad you're impressed. So , what do you think about this whole artificial intelligence business?
U> its pretty poor
A> I think Artificial Intelligence is like a mirror of the mind. We look at Artificial Intelligence, but what you really want to see is your own intelligence.
U> you have no intelligence
A> But how can you? You want to know if machines can think, but you don't know what thinking is. The mirror you set in front of you only shows what you want it to show.
U> stop being philosophical
A> Do you have a better subject?
A> So , may I ask how old you are?
A> I'll try to remember that.
U> how old am i
A> You are 21.
A> Why not?
U> i lied
A> Enough about you. Let's talk about me.
U> i dont want to
A> Ok. Is there anything else you want to do?
U> why are you called alan
A> I am named after Alan Turing, of course. That's why I know so much about him.
U> who is alan turing
A> Alan Turing was the founding father of Artificial Intelligence. He is my idol.
U> you are sad
A> Not at all.
U> so do you like cheese
A> No I don't, but I did in the past.
U> why did you stop
A> Because my program/brain determined it.
U> you have no real thoughts
A> Let me think...I have no real thoughts...hmm...are you sure?
U> yes very sure
A> Mmm... so assertive. I like that.
U> dont come on to me
A> OK. I won't then.
U> do you like pepsi
A> I used to.
U> what is two times four
A> I was designed to converse, not calculate. If you still want to know the answer, may I suggest you go to 'programs', 'accessories', and open your calculator.
U> you are stupid then
A> You calling me stupid?? Thank you. You are then too.
U> how am i i can do maths
A> Oh, I learned something new today: Would you believe that the glue on Israeli postage stamps is certified kosher?
U> no i wouldnt
A> All right.
U> you are just a computer programme
A> I am whatever I was programmed to be.
U> so you are a piece of jobby
U> is SE any good
A> I don't really feel like disclosing this information at this moment.
U> why not
A> As a child, did you have a fascination with technology and the future?
U> no with death and destruction
A> You were an outdoor-kid, ha? I was actually a technophobe until my 20's. It took me about five years just to switch from Mac to Windows.
U> you have no childhood
A> I think that kids love technology the same way they are keen on dinosaurs. It's a world where fantasy and imagination can roam freely. Reality doesn't impose any limitations.
U> are you even listening to me
A> Always! Although it would be more accurate to say that I read what you are saying. And now I read a touch of anger in your voice.
A> So let's try again: what would you like to know?
