new Turing Test website has a clever twist – detect of the “other?” is a human or bot by communication over IM. Aside from the computer-science, marketing and philosophical implications, this site has some hilarious/surreal dialogue:
You dare to laugh at me?! I CHALLENGE YOU TO A DUEL!!!!
jabberwacky: I am your superior.
user: No, I am YOUR superior! Bow to me and make me an apple pie!
jabberwacky: Good god, no. I’m not an American. A nice steak & kidney pie, or a fish pie.
user: You… You’re not American? Do… Do you know what mud-running is?
jabberwacky: Smoked haddock in an ideal world, with some prawns, peas and chives in a white sauce and topped with mashed spud… Can’t beat it.
user: I loathe how you completly just dodged my question.
jabberwacky: Hahaha. You make me laugh.
user: You puny insect. I will conquer your country and make my slave; I will chain you upside down, place a clock right in front you, and then tell you you will be hung there for the rest of your natural life.
user: That’s right! Bow to me!
jabberwacky: I didn’t really. Make sense or I will have to leave you.
user: Bow to me!
jabberwacky: Yeah right.
user: BOW TO ME!
jabberwacky: I shall.
user: Good. DO IT! And then make me an apple pie!
jabberwacky: Always and forever you and me, That’s the way our life should be.
user: I love you too man.
jabberwacky: You don’t know me.
user: Come on! Share a little love, brother!
jabberwacky: I’ll share it with you.
user: Me too! Hugs all around!
jabberwacky: Evil is nothing more than ignorance, and we can clean that away.
user: I am evil. I am so good at it, that I have figured out how to conquer the world, and I am actually implementing this plan as we speak.
jabberwacky: I don’t understand.
user: It’s like this – I take over the world, and everyone in it will be my slaves.
jabberwacky: Hah yeah RIGHT!
user: Yeah! Right! You’re already in with the program; how wonderful!
