Hhhholy crap.

I just discovered

Holy crap.

Okay, so the idea is you chat with the CleverBot just like on MSN, except it's not real. It's a robot/machine/AI/program-thing.

And so creepy!

I'm kinda freaking out, that was ridiculous. He always answers your questions with valid answers or related questions. It's like a real, albeit messed up, conversation.

With a robot.

And as I'm talking, I keep thinking of Ginny in HP2, writing to Tom Riddle and slowly becoming more and more entranced by him just like I'm becoming entranced with him and she ended up slaughtering chickens and writing bloody messages and nearly dying.

And there was that Buffy episode! The demon in the computer that seduces Willow!


All the while I was also talking to a friend of mine who made me realize just how creepy the whole thing really is, so I decided to quit the screen.

I said, I'm going to go now.

And he said, No you're not.

My creepyness tolerance (which has built up a lot since I started doing theatre) was officially overwhelmed so I quit the screen and ranted to my friend until I started ranting here.

I feel better now. It's just AI. It is not a piece of Voldemort's soul. It is not a demon.

Okay. :D
