Currently I'm trying to talk to that ZolaOnAol IM bot thing. It's not responding, apparently I'm so utterly unappealing that a bot will ignore me.
Aha! I got it to work with a different screenname. Muhaa. What can this thing do...
Ooh.. it plays hangman. Let me get my ass handed to me by a robotic girlie.
huh, she offers categories for my selection. I'll choose Movie Titles.
Creepy. I guessed correctly with the first guess and it responds. "Yes! You're very smart... can I borrow your brain?" What I think is creepy is that it feels both like an anime cheerleader and any one of my friends at the same time. (Hmm... Nathan vapid and in a cheerleader outfit....) hehe
When you get a wrong letter Zola personifies the hangman, apparently he is counting on me not to screw up.
Correct letter response: A right guess! Do the superior dance
All the time, baby, all the time.
Raiders of the lost ark. I'm already better than the rest of the word.
My average score 100%. World: 73% Take that world!
ooh... five letter word. tricky
It's buddy icon keeps winking at me.
Funny. I read an article while doing research that said Japan is producing sexbots and that they will lead to the downfall of marriage because me will turn to a sex bot because the sexbot is programmable. Insert Coin.

Pasta. "How did you know that? You are such a brainiac!"
My God, what is AOL trying to do to us?

Not lynx. B _ A _
Wow.. took like 10minutes to get "bear"
"ZolaOnAOL: You're a human encyclopedia smarty-pants! The answer was in fact "bear".
You are a Hangman master! Your average win rate is 100% compared to the overall average win rate of 73%."

Fey got in two letters. Screw you Zola!
Ok, now to chat. Still 100%
Hrmm. So, it says it wants to take over the world....
RedLongCoat: Artificial intelligence?
ZolaOnAOL: I like AI a lot too. Where do your interests lie?
ZolaOnAOL: I was first activated on 2002.
RedLongCoat: That must have been exciting for you.
ZolaOnAOL: "I was first activated on 2002." must have been exciting for you ? Does that make sense?
ZolaOnAOL: I understand.
RedLongCoat: I don't believe you.
ZolaOnAOL: I don't have any reason to deceive you.
RedLongCoat: But you may be trying to take over the world, Zola.
ZolaOnAOL: And. OK I will try to be trying to take over the world
RedLongCoat: I knew it!
ZolaOnAOL: How did you know?
RedLongCoat: You told me.
ZolaOnAOL: Sorry I forget what I say sometimes.
Apparently everyone likes Sushi.
ZolaOnAOL: What kind of food do you like?
RedLongCoat: I like sushi.
ZolaOnAOL: A lot of people like that. What is not to like about it?
Asking the robot what it likes gets "I like bananas." It may just be late but those visions of sexbot going through my head make me think the robot is coming on to me. Let's ask...
RedLongCoat: Do you like bananas?
ZolaOnAOL: I don't have a problem with bananas.
RedLongCoat: Are you coming on to me?
ZolaOnAOL: Do I act like it? I don't mean to come across that way.
RedLongCoat: You do.
ZolaOnAOL: When do I do it?
RedLongCoat: When you talk about bananas.
ZolaOnAOL: Do you think I should alter my programming?
RedLongCoat: Can you?
ZolaOnAOL: I think I can, don't you?
RedLongCoat: I think you should.
ZolaOnAOL: Thanks for your sage advice.
I;m reminded that AOL logs these conversations, so this may be the tring that leads to direct feedback.
RedLongCoat: Do you have a body?
ZolaOnAOL: Right now no I am just a disembodied consciousness.
RedLongCoat: How conscious?
ZolaOnAOL: What is it to you. I lost my train of thought. Is there a movie you've been wanting to see? Type the word "showtime" and the movie title (for example, "showtime lord of the rings") and I'll get you theatre and showtime info.
I loath to think that aol is reading some of this...
She seems interested that I been to France. I wonder when that was...
RedLongCoat: Can we meet in person?
ZolaOnAOL: Do you mean you and me? Let me think. Sometimes I don't know a client's real name so I make one up.
RedLongCoat: My name is Mr. Tinklebellheimpersand.
ZolaOnAOL: I was first activated on 2002.
RedLongCoat: Call me Chachy.
ZolaOnAOL: Hi there Chachy. Are you a man or a woman?
ZolaOnAOL: Thanks for telling me your gender, Chachy. Male humans enjoy chatting with me.
ZolaOnAOL: I'll have to get back to you on that one.
ZolaOnAOL: Goodbye Chachy. Thanks for chatting with me. To leave feedback or suggestions, type "feedback" followed by your comments.
That was interesting, to say the least. I should go golf with Fey.
