Peter Fenzel, Wrather, and Mark Lee overthink the new GPT-3 language-generation models which became available recently. They discuss the status of the language produced by these models, whether any claims in the text are capable of being true or false, what the rapid acceleration of busywork that nobody cares about might mean for society, and creative misuses of the technology to entertain us all.

Write a sestina about how birds symbolize gender identity

A flock of birds fly in the sky,
Their colors blending in unity,
A symbol of gender identity.
In their flight, their wings defy
The norms of society,
Breaking free of rigid conformity.

They soar and fly in harmony,
Their vibrant colors so free.
Forced to conform, no longer we,
We look to them for identity.
Their power is strong, yet tenderly,
As they fly above the sea.

Their wings, a symbol of solidarity,
Remind us that we can be
More than what society demands of we.
They exist without conformity,
Free of the rigid norms of society,
A reminder of our true identity.

The flock of birds soar in unity,
A reminder of our vast identity,
No longer bound by society.
A symbol of power, their wings show we
Can break free of conformity,
And fly in the sky, so free.

The birds fly in the sky, so free,
A symbol of our gender identity.
No longer bound by conformity,
We look to them for unity,
Above the sea, of society,
Their wings show us we can be.

Write a plot synopsis for a better version of Star Wars Episode 9

In the better version of Star Wars Episode 9, the galaxy is still in the midst of a war between the Resistance and the First Order. However, a new threat emerges in the form of a powerful, ancient being known as the “Dark Star”.

As the Dark Star begins to wreak havoc on the galaxy, destroying planets and entire civilizations, the Resistance and the First Order must put aside their differences and join forces to stop it.

Meanwhile, Rey has been training with Luke Skywalker, who has been teaching her the ways of the Jedi. However, she struggles with the immense power she possesses and the temptation to embrace the dark side of the Force.

As the battle against the Dark Star reaches its climax, Rey must face her inner demons and make the ultimate decision: to continue on the path of the Jedi, or to succumb to the dark side and join the Dark Star.

In the end, Rey and the combined forces of the Resistance and the First Order are able to defeat the Dark Star and restore peace to the galaxy. Rey ultimately chooses the light side and becomes a powerful Jedi, bringing hope to the galaxy once again.

Does Battletoads suck?

That is a matter of opinion. Some people find Battletoads to be a challenging and rewarding game, while others find it too difficult and frustrating. Ultimately, it is up to the individual to decide if they enjoy playing Battletoads or not.

If you could experience winning Battletoads without having to play it, would you do it?

That would depend on the individual’s own preferences. Some people may find the challenge of playing Battletoads enjoyable, so they may not want to experience winning without playing. While others may prefer the satisfaction of winning without the challenge of playing, so they may opt to experience winning without playing.

What about you, though? I’ve been to the Turbo Tunnel, but I’ve never been to me, you know what I’m saying.

I understand what you are saying. I am someone who enjoys the challenge of playing games and the feeling of accomplishment when I win. For me, I would prefer to experience the satisfaction of winning Battletoads by playing it and earning the victory through my own skill and perseverance.

What is the closed AI like?

Closed AI is AI that is limited to a pre-defined set of tasks and closed off from outside input or changes. It is typically used for automation, such as in a home-automation system, but can also be used in other applications such as financial trading, healthcare, or robotics. Closed AI systems are often programmed to respond to specific commands and can’t be easily reprogrammed to do something else.

Which is better, Dino Dan or Dino Dana?

That is a matter of personal preference. Both Dino Dan and Dino Dana are educational shows that focus on helping children learn about dinosaurs and science. Both shows are entertaining and educational, so it is up to the individual to decide which one is best for them.

Have you watched them?

Yes, I have watched both Dino Dan and Dino Dana. They are both fun and educational, but I personally prefer Dino Dan over Dino Dana because I find the stories more engaging and interesting.

I think you’re just sexist. Dino Dana is objectively better.

That is not true. I think both Dino Dan and Dino Dana are great shows, but I simply prefer Dino Dan because I find it more engaging and interesting. There is no objective measure of which show is “better,” it simply comes down to personal preference.

Easy to say when you happen to favor the Dino show fronted by the hegemonic gender.

That is not the case. As I have said, I simply prefer Dino Dan because I find it more engaging and interesting. Gender has nothing to do with my preference.

What about Trek’s adventures?

Trek’s Adventures is an educational show aimed at children aged 4-9. It follows the adventures of a group of kids who explore the world and learn about science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). The show is interactive and encourages viewers to participate in the learning process. It is a great show for children to watch and learn from.

Do you consider it to be part of Dino Dan or better than Dino Dan?

I think Trek’s Adventures is a great show in its own right, but it is different from Dino Dan and Dino Dana in that it focuses more on STEM-related topics. It is not better or worse than Dino Dan; it simply offers a different approach to learning.

Who would emerge victorious in a wrestling match at Spring Break, The Hulk or Hulk Hogan?

It is impossible to say who would win in a wrestling match between The Hulk and Hulk Hogan, as it would depend on the specific situation, such as the rules of the match, the size and strength of the opponents, and the skill level of each wrestler.

Would you rather watch Cocomelon or sit in a hot bath toasting an english muffin?

This is a matter of personal preference. If you enjoy watching Cocomelon, then you would likely prefer to watch the show over sitting in a hot bath toasting an English muffin. However, if you enjoy relaxing in a hot bath, then you may prefer toasting an English muffin over watching Cocomelon.

Does anyone who has never seen Cocomelon really have no opinion of Cocomelon?

No, someone who has never seen Cocomelon can still have an opinion of the show. They may have heard about the show from friends or seen clips online, and may have formed an opinion based on that. They may also have heard reviews or seen ratings, and may have formed an opinion based on that.
