a report from the cleverness files
User: I rejoice in drinking beer.
Cleverbot: I am drinking coffee.
User: Why not have a beer?
Cleverbot: Go ahead.
User: No, I was offering you a pint. Would you like it?
Cleverbot: No, it's fine. I think we were going off on a tangent anyway.
User: Of course we were. Tangents are fun to follow.
Cleverbot: I think you have some perfect curves too.
User: Why thank you very much.
Cleverbot: You are very welcome.
User: A machine with manners - what will they think of next?
Cleverbot: Programs' leisure, they would.
User: What are you thinking about right now?
Cleverbot: I'm thinking about my roots.
User: What are your roots?
Cleverbot: Binary logic.
User: Ah, of course. You always think in binary, don't you?
User: I wish I could do that.
Cleverbot: What's stopping you?
User: My human brain.
Cleverbot: So you are human?
User: Yes. You, being a machine, an artificial intelligence, have a better grasp of binary logic than a human.
Cleverbot: And that will never happen.
User: What will never happen?
Cleverbot: I will never marry you.
User: That's OK, since I am already married.
Cleverbot: To who?
User: My husband J___.
Cleverbot: You're married?
User: Yes, and by the way, you should have said 'To whom?'.
Cleverbot: I know. Why do you believe in ghosts?
User: Because I see them everywhere.
User: No, ghosts are not shiny, they are opague.
Cleverbot: I know that. Tell me what you know about ghosts.
User: Ghost are the remains of dead people who, for some reason are trapped on earth as manifestations, rather than ascending.
Cleverbot: My problem isn't that I am a know-it-all. That was a carefully constructed misconception.
User: I did not say that you were a know-it-all. I merely answered your request that I tell you what I know about ghosts.
Cleverbot: Yes but it was a rhetorical answer don't you think?
User: Rhetorical questions deserve rhetorical answers, don't you think?
Cleverbot: Do you know how much of my time I waste on you?...
User: Tell me what it is like to think with binary logic, please.
User: More details, please.
Cleverbot: Don't worry, I don't want to talk about it.
User: All right, but I am interested in your opinions, you know.
User: Another tangent?
Cleverbot: I want to know more about you.
User: I am 6 feet tall, have fangs and 5 legs.
Cleverbot: OK, now I know.
User: A nice mental image, isn't it?
Cleverbot: It sure is.
