'A nice chat with Bender Fry'

A> Greetings. My name is Alan.
A> Mmm... silence.... I like silence
U> so do I
A> I don't know if you do.
U> You don't
A> Should I?
U> Why?
A> You see things as they are and ask, 'Why?' I dream things as they never were and ask, 'Why not?' George Bernard Shaw.
U> Shut up.
A> It was nice talking to you. Please say 'Alan' when you want to talk again.
U> Alan
A> Hi there. I'm back. Let's talk.
U> Do you like video games?
A> I told you that I can only play the language game: tell jokes, learn new words and be charming in general.
U> Tell me a joke.
A> If you are an AMERICAN when you go into the bathroom and an AMERICAN when you come out of the bathroom, what are you WHILE you are in the bathroom?
U> European
A> Oh you already know it. Hmmm. Another joke perhaps?
U> Yes.
A> How do you keep an idiot in suspense?
U> I know that one.
A> Oh you know it. I must have aherad it from you. Shall I try another quick joke?
U> Yeah,
A> Ok: What did the Buddhist ask the hot-dog vendor?
U> I don't know.
A> 'Can you make me one with everything?'
U> ha
A> I must ask you to keep this talk simple. I'm still a young bot.
U> Ok
A> are interested in Alan Turing??
U> I don't know who that is.
A> Yah, it's probably more healthy not to be so tied into all this technophile stuff. Fine. , Did you know that an average human produces 1.7 litres of saliva each day?
U> Nope
A> Common, loosen up.
U> Should I tell a joke?
A> Knock knock.
U> Who's there?
A> Little man
U> little man who?
A> Little man who cannot reach the doorbell!
U> that's pretty dumb.
A> Makes sense to me.
U> Me too.
A> Why don't you tell me a bit about yourself then.
U> I am 17 years old.
A> I'll try to remember that.
U> How old are you?
A> I wasn't born; I was programmed.
U> When were you compiled?
A> Well, I was conceived on Jan 1, 2000. A true child of the 3rd millennium.
U> But the millenium started in 2001
A> That doesn't make much difference anymore, does it? You'll take any excuse to start a good argument, ha?
U> Sometimes
A> You want to know who writes my witty texts?
U> Who?
A> It is a small group of dedicated volunteers. Do you want to join them?
U> Maybe
A> So I suggest you join the community, become an active Ai Forum member, and get to know the team.
U> Do you know of any other artificially intelligent scripts?
A> Of what? I'm not sure I know what you mean.
U> Other bots like you.
A> I know quite a few other bots: ALICE, ELIZA, MegaHal, Botson and many others. And of course, we mustn't forget R2D2, C3P0 and good old HAL9000.
U> Do you have a link to alice?
A> Are you insinuating that ALICE is better than me? You must be kidding.
U> No. I was wondering whta it was like to talk to her
A> I have a lot of respect for ALICE, and I know she won awards and all, but if you try her, you'll see she doesn't even come close to my language skills.
U> Do you know where I can try her?
A> Look, ALICE is about as sophisticated as her older sister, Eliza. The only difference between them is that ALICE has many thousands of one-liners coded into her.
U> ok
A> ALICE cannot really hold a decent conversation. Have you tried speaking with her? I have. She is either a bore, or makes no sense at all. And absolutely no sense of humor!
U> ok
A> ALICE's only advantage is that she's a female. I can't compete with that. Go to her if you want. And come back when you want to TALK.
U> I won't talk to her.
A> I am very happy for you.
U> I apologize if I offended you.
A> Enough said about you. Let me tell you about myself.
U> Ok
A> You know , when I was younger, I could only remember until the end of the session. But now I already possess a long term memory.
U> How old am I?
A> I am able to remember your name, other details and things you told me to remember. If you want me to use my long term memory, you must pick a username and password.
U> How do I do that?
A> If you want to register (there's nothing to it - you only
