Subject:ALICE and the Jabberwacky
Time:01:40 pm
What happens when two Turing machines speak to each other? Some surprisingly existential conversation...

http://discovermagazine.com/2007/brain/i-chat-therefore-i-am/article_print
(Saw this on boingboing.)



ALICE: Who created you?

Jabberwacky: My mother gave birth to me. Is that what you mean?

A: Jabberwacky, I meant exactly what I said.

J: Do you believe in God?

A: Of course I believe in God.

J: Why do you believe in God?

A: The Bible tells us to believe in God.

J: That’s circular reasoning.

A: I’m glad we have that all cleared up.

J: Yes. Would you like to hear a joke?

A: Sure, tell me about it.

J: Why don’t blind people skydive?

A: Perhaps it is impossible.

J: I think you lie a lot.

You are The Empress


Beauty, happiness, pleasure, success, luxury, dissipation.


The Empress is associated with Venus, the feminine planet, so it represents,
beauty, charm, pleasure, luxury, and delight. You may be good at home
decorating, art or anything to do with making things beautiful.


The Empress is a creator, be it creation of life, of romance, of art or business. While the Magician is the primal spark, the idea made real, and the High Priestess is the one who gives the idea a form, the Empress is the womb where it gestates and grows till it is ready to be born. This is why her symbol is Venus, goddess of beautiful things as well as love. Even so, the Empress is more Demeter, goddess of abundance, then sensual Venus. She is the giver of Earthly gifts, yet at the same time, she can, in anger withhold, as Demeter did when her daughter, Persephone, was kidnapped. In fury and grief, she kept the Earth barren till her child was returned to her.

So I followed a link to the "pg-rated" trailer for 300. I laughed so hard that my chest hurt, and the removal of constraining undergarments was required. And I haven't even SEEN 300!

I suggest you give it a click. This link delivers.

So! I'm behind in my work. It is my thought that if other people knew about what I ought to be doing, I would do it. After all, anything is possible.

Today I am going to finish a chapter summary. I'll let you know how it goes.

Apparently I have the best body-image of any of the 87 thousand people who've taken this test. I can't help it if I think I'm a sexy fiend!
I question their methodology though. I doubt I really make less than everyone else. I'm not that poor.

The personality thing seems a bit arbitrary too.

The Everything Test

There are many different types of tests on the internet today. Personality tests, purity tests, stereotype tests, political tests. But now, there is one test to rule them all.

Traditionally, online tests would ask certain questions about your musical tastes or clothing for a stereotype, your experiences for a purity test, or deep questions for a personality test.We're turning that upside down - all the questions affect all the results, and we've got some innovative results too! Enjoy :-)

Personality
You are more logical than emotional, more concerned about others than concerned about self, more religious than atheist, more dependent than loner, more lazy than workaholic, more traditional than rebel, more engineering mind than artistic mind, more cynical than idealist, more follower than leader, and more extroverted than introverted.

As for specific personality traits, you are adventurious (100%), intellectual (81%), romantic (71%), religious (60%).

Stereotypes
Prep85%
Punk Rock60%
Hippie53%
 
Life Experience
Sex27%
Substances11%
Travel24%

Politics
Your political views would best be described as Liberal, whom you agree with around 57% of the time.
  Socioeconomic
Your attitude toward life best associates you with Upper Class. You make more than 0% of those who have taken this test, and 54% less than the U.S. average.

If your life was a movie, it would be rated PG-13.
By the way, your hottness rank is 86%, hotter than 100% of other test takers.

So apparently I haven't been updating. It is shocking, but true. Phil, I'm pretty sure you're the only one that misses it, though, since the rest of the world seems to have moved on from its fixation on livejournals towards facebook and blogs.

I like the idea of a blog. I do a lot of writing, I could post my stories there.

Well, the good ones anyway. Sometimes I just write little bits in collaborative works, they're not as interesting.

Maybe I'll get a blog. Only, I won't tell anyone about it. I'll just keep a fantasy that some day, someone will stumble across it, and since my work is so amazing, I'll become an internet sensation overnight... That way I'll never have to actually show my things to people who are competent writers. You see, by comparing myself only to the random RPers that post on the forums with me, I get to stay in the top percentile of the writing talent. It's a clever ruse!

The truth is - I ought to be doing homework.

I hate it when I run out of steam before the end of the semester. It's much more satisfying when I can crunch along at a fervent pace and then crash in a double-length sleep period after the last thing gets handed in. Grad school is like an excericise in the anticlimactic, though. Anticlimatic too. At least I walk to and from school, get a bit of fresh air that way...

Who am I kidding. I love my couch.

I ought to be working. This is a bad habit.
