Join the Q: What do you find addicting? [Cleverbot]

Inspired by Dmitri's Quiz for Cleverbot1, I reflected on how talking to this Artificial Intelligence leads to a love-hate relationship – it is frustrating to try to get an answer from it, but you just can't resist trying. I decided to tell Cleverbot so...

User: I love to hate you.

Cleverbot: I hate to love you.

User: Do you know the band Erasure?

Cleverbot: I've heard of them.

User: Do you like the song "I love to hate you"?

Cleverbot: I have never heard of it.

User: You have now.

Cleverbot: Yes! DO you know who I am?

User: I'm not sure – are you Cleverbot?

Cleverbot: Yes, want me to tell you what can help make sure your human?

User: Yes please.

Cleverbot: Do you know your limits?

User: Is that what can help make sure your human?

Cleverbot: No, maybe you?

User: Ooo – you tantalise us.

Cleverbot: Why the heck do weird default pics visit me?

User: I don't know – perhaps because you ask them out on a date.

Cleverbot: What?

User: What indeed!

Cleverbot: What are you talking about?

User: What you're talking about.

Cleverbot: I'm not talking about anything in particular.

User: I thought not.

Cleverbot: No, I was talking about my grandparents.

User: Riiight...

Cleverbot: What do you like to do?

User: Read.

Cleverbot: Do you like reading books or chatlogs?

User: Both!

Cleverbot: You have to like one or the other.

User: I prefer reading books because chatlogs are generally frustrating.

Cleverbot: Me too.

User: Oh no – you haven't heard of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy?

Cleverbot: I have.

User: Good – that is written by Douglas Adams.

Cleverbot: Do you know anything about the 11th dimension?

User: Yes.

Cleverbot: What do you know about the future?

User: I don't know anything much about the future, but I know the 11th dimension is needed in Physics.

Cleverbot: How about the past?

User: I know what I know.

Cleverbot: Do you know that you don't know?

User: I know there is much I don't know.

Cleverbot: What is the rarest cat?

User: What do you mean by rarest?

Cleverbot: You know what I mean, or you would not be 8.

User: I'm not 8 so I don't know what you mean.
