Thanks for a fascinating show! I couldn’t resist trying an online AI chatbot (jabberwacky). Here’s the output:

Me: Windows is freedom.
AI bot: Who created Windows?
Me: Bill Gates.
AI bot: Who is Bill Gates?
Me: Bill Gates founded Microsoft.
AI bot: Where did he find it?
Me: DE MACK IS DE BEST COMPOOTA IN DE W0RLD.
AI bot: Is that in France?
Me: Yes Louise.
AI bot: My name is Louise.
Me: Yes.
AI bot: Your name is Yes?
Me: My name is Bob.
AI bot: What’s my name?
Me: Louise.
AI bot: No, my name is Louise, what’s YOUR name???

Sigh…
