Re: Artificial Irony detector required
I did run this paper he wrote
I asked Chatgpt "Please tell me if the following was generated by AI:", followed by the text of this paper https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S016815912030054X where Munn is lead author. The response was:
It is difficult to determine with absolute certainty whether this text was generated by AI or written by a human. However, the technical nature and formatting of the text, as well as the lack of personal opinions or subjective language, suggest that it may have been generated by AI.
All I can says is:
Re: If they cared about children...
Conversely the right to choose is the right to choose to have an abortion, because if you choose not to, there is no support from the pro choice movement.
Actually it's all bollocks, because there are a very few on both sides who will offer to support women to keep their child.
But hey, that would go against the rhetoric, wouldn't it?
Re: More magnetics
Similar happened to me on the Italian motorways. Got the ticket at the toll machine. Drove a few hundred km. Tried to leave the Motorway. (automatic exit machine).. ticket wouldn't read. I had to press the contact button. I don't speak Italian. Somehow I managed to communicate that I'd got onto the motorway at its start, and they remotely set the fee.
I'd stored the ticket next to my mobile phone in the car.

What is the book "Equal Rites" by Terry Pratchett about?
"Equal Rites is a novel by Terry Pratchett, published in 1987. It is the third book in the Discworld series. The story follows the character Granny Weatherwax, a witch, as she tries to prevent a young girl named Eskarina Smith from becoming the first female wizard in the Discworld. Along the way, Granny must confront the prejudices and superstitions of the wizarding community, who believe that magic is only for men."
Maybe it's only read the early works?
Re: I asked it what War and Peace was about.
I asked: Who was Sir Terry Pratchett?
"Sir Terry Pratchett was a British author, best known for his Discworld series of fantasy novels. He was born in 1948 and began writing at a young age. He published his first novel, The Carpet People, in 1971, and his first Discworld novel, The Color of Magic, in 1983.
"Over the course of his career, Pratchett wrote more than 70 books, many of which were part of the Discworld series. He was known for his humorous and satirical writing style, and his books often explored themes of social and political satire, as well as science fiction and fantasy."
So clearly it "knows" something.
I then asked: What is War and Peace about?
"War and Peace is a novel by Russian author Leo Tolstoy, first published in 1869. The novel is considered one of the greatest works of world literature, and it is renowned for its epic scope, detailed depiction of Russian society in the early 19th century, and its exploration of the psychological and emotional lives of its characters.
War and Peace is set against the backdrop of the Napoleonic Wars, and it follows the lives of several aristocratic families in Russia as they navigate the social, political, and personal challenges of the time. The novel explores themes such as the nature of war, the impact of historical events on individuals and society, and the search for meaning and purpose in life.
At its core, War and Peace is a story about the human experience and the ways in which people are affected by the events and circumstances of their time. It is a powerful and thought-provoking exploration of the complexities of the human condition."
How is Godel’s Incompleteness Theorem linked to Turing Machines
The answer was:
Gödel's incompleteness theorem and Turing machines are both connected to the concept of the limitations of formal systems and computing. Gödel's incompleteness theorem is a mathematical result that showed that any formal system used for mathematics (such as a programming language) must be incomplete. This means that there are certain statements that cannot be proven or disproven within the system.
The Turing machine, on the other hand, is a theoretical computing model proposed by mathematician Alan Turing. It is a universal computing device, capable of simulating any other computing device. However, the Turing machine is also subject to the limitations of Gödel's theorem, meaning that there are certain tasks or problems that it cannot solve.
The link between Gödel's incompleteness theorem and Turing machines comes from the fact that both are concerned with the limitations of what can be achieved with computing. Gödel's theorem shows that there are certain problems that cannot be solved by a computer, even in principle, while the Turing machine is a theoretical model of a computing device that is designed to be able to perform any computation that could be done by a real-world computer.
Together, Gödel's incompleteness theorem and the Turing machine provide a theoretical framework for understanding the limitations of computing and the inherent limitations of formal systems.
easyJet b do something similar. They waived flight change admin fees, due to Covid, but the new flight will be charged considerably more than if you purchased it directly. They simply add the admin fee they would have charged to the price of the first flight.
I changed two flights to two new ones. At the same time I bought two additional identical flights. The first leg of the changed flights was over £130 more expensive than the additional. easyJet of course deny any wrong doing saying they don't have a published price.

People are used to what they're used to. Sometimes what they're used to is slower compared to modern applications. But having used vi(m) for years, I doubt it's really more effective than modern editors.
Anyway, as a developer, I spend more time thinking than I do typing.
Really smart syntax checking in the editor. That's what I want.
