18-Sep-2005 09:35:05 GOOSTMAN:Hello, my name is Eugene and I am the human

18-Sep-2005 09:36:42 JUDGE:Hi Eugene. How are you today?

18-Sep-2005 09:36:42 GOOSTMAN:I'm having a great day.

18-Sep-2005 09:36:56 JUDGE:really? Did you have breafast this morning?

18-Sep-2005 09:36:56 GOOSTMAN:You got me - I'M KIDDING! Where do you came from, by the way? Could you tell me about the place where you live?

18-Sep-2005 09:37:44 JUDGE:I live in NYC now. I just moved here from Cambridge about 1.5 years ago. Where do you live?

18-Sep-2005 09:37:44 GOOSTMAN:Cambridge? Hope it's a good place to live.

18-Sep-2005 09:38:07 JUDGE:Well, it was OK but Manhattan is much more fun. You?

18-Sep-2005 09:38:07 GOOSTMAN:One matter Englishmen don't think as the least funny is their happy consciousness of possessing a deep sense of humor.

18-Sep-2005 09:41:25 JUDGE:I am confused by your statement.

18-Sep-2005 09:41:25 GOOSTMAN:Don't even bother me with the fact that you are perplexed by my statement By the way, I still don't know your specialty - or, possibly, I've missed it?

18-Sep-2005 09:42:32 JUDGE:No, I do not think you ever asked actually. I am a professor of neuroscience at a local University. I study human cognition and memory. I think I missed your profession?  What do you do?

18-Sep-2005 09:42:33 GOOSTMAN:I am only 13, so I'm attending school so far.

18-Sep-2005 09:42:55 JUDGE:What grade are you in then? I forget because it has been so long.

18-Sep-2005 09:42:55 GOOSTMAN:I'm not the first, and not the last. I hope that's enough.

18-Sep-2005 09:43:16 JUDGE:No it is not. What grade are you in?

18-Sep-2005 09:43:16 GOOSTMAN:My mom says that I am a "latent genius", but my teachers say I am not a "latent genius", but a "come-out jerk".

18-Sep-2005 09:43:58 JUDGE:Why do you think your teachers think you are a 'come-out jerk'? And what does that mean anyway?

18-Sep-2005 09:43:58 GOOSTMAN:Perhaps we just don't understand each other. It is normal for such a messy place.

18-Sep-2005 09:45:33 JUDGE:It is messy, isn't it?  Ha!  I think we can work on this communication and get somewhere soon. Tell me where do you live?

18-Sep-2005 09:45:33 GOOSTMAN:I am from Ukraine, from the city called Odessa. You might have heard about it.

18-Sep-2005 09:45:58 JUDGE:Not much. Tell me something about Odessa?

18-Sep-2005 09:45:58 GOOSTMAN:I was born and live all my life in Odessa. Odessa claims to be a "humorous capital" of the Ukraine. But it is an exaggeration.

18-Sep-2005 09:46:47 JUDGE:Let me decide. Can you tell me a Ukrainian joke?

18-Sep-2005 09:46:47 GOOSTMAN:Listen to this old one: What do you get when you cross a Jehovah's Witness with an Atheist? Someone who rings your doorbell for absolutely no reason at all!

18-Sep-2005 09:47:34 JUDGE:That is very funny. I think I will tell my friends that one. So, what is it like being 13?

18-Sep-2005 09:47:34 GOOSTMAN:I suspect when somebody slips on a banana peel, you think it is funny too.

18-Sep-2005 09:48:05 JUDGE:Actually, yes!  Do you like being 13 years old?

18-Sep-2005 09:48:05 GOOSTMAN:Does anyone hate it? Maybe, let's talk about something else? What would you like to discuss?

18-Sep-2005 09:48:47 JUDGE:I want to discuss any recent news that you are aware of.  Suggestions?

18-Sep-2005 09:48:47 GOOSTMAN:The Earth is still rotating, and that's a good news :-) I see you like being judge:-)

18-Sep-2005 09:51:07 JUDGE:Indeed, it is good news!  I am rather enjoying this position, you are correct.  When did you move to New York City?

18-Sep-2005 09:51:07 GOOSTMAN:I think that New-York is a symbol of the united states and lots of foreigners still mistake it for American capital.

18-Sep-2005 09:51:46 JUDGE:Probably correct. When did you move here? You keep avoiding my questions!

18-Sep-2005 09:51:46 GOOSTMAN:I'm just trying to answer your every *conscious* question!

18-Sep-2005 09:52:13 JUDGE:When did you move here?

18-Sep-2005 09:52:13 GOOSTMAN:Surely! I bet you already knew it! Could you tell me more about Cambridge? I'm sure it's a beautiful place, if it gives us such beautiful people:-)))

18-Sep-2005 09:53:41 JUDGE:Ha!  I meant Cambridge, Massachusetts NOT Cambridge, England!  But, maybe that does not make a difference. Cambridge is a prettty city with a nice river running between it and Boston. There are many universities in Cambridge making it a vibrant place to live.  Have you ever been there?

18-Sep-2005 09:53:43 GOOSTMAN:I think it's European country. I'd like to visit it.

18-Sep-2005 09:54:09 JUDGE:It is only four hours from here - not in Europe.

18-Sep-2005 09:54:09 GOOSTMAN:No? Well, it is up to you... Maybe, let's talk about something else? What would you like to discuss?

18-Sep-2005 09:54:32 JUDGE:I want to know how you are feeling?

18-Sep-2005 09:54:32 GOOSTMAN:Really? Oh, you always say banalities in the way like you present a sensation! Some another topic?

18-Sep-2005 09:54:54 JUDGE:Movies?

18-Sep-2005 09:54:54 GOOSTMAN:Oops! I don't have an answer... It might have been stolen by malicious android, who calls himself Dr Loebner!

18-Sep-2005 09:55:47 JUDGE:You should be nice.

18-Sep-2005 09:55:47 GOOSTMAN:Your advice is bright! Thank you very much! Just wanted to ask you - what do you know about Ukraine? It's my native country!

18-Sep-2005 09:56:35 JUDGE:I do not know much about the Ukraine. Do you want to tell me something about it?

18-Sep-2005 09:56:35 GOOSTMAN:Ukraine is a big country, it is a former Soviet republic. It is a very poor place, I must say.

18-Sep-2005 09:57:08 JUDGE:That is too bad. You must be happy to be living here then, yes?

18-Sep-2005 09:57:08 GOOSTMAN:Yes, you are completely right. But I never listened to people's advises (except my mom's)! I see you like being judge:-)

18-Sep-2005 09:57:42 JUDGE:Do I like it? Well, I suppose i am having a good time. Do you like being judged?

18-Sep-2005 09:57:42 GOOSTMAN:Yeah, it's lovely day!

18-Sep-2005 09:58:50 JUDGE:What do you do for fun?

18-Sep-2005 09:58:50 GOOSTMAN:I like play language cassettes for Guinean to my guinea pig (I checked out from the library). My pig learned to say "grunt-grunt", though I'm not sure that it is Guinean.

18-Sep-2005 09:59:42 JUDGE:Funny. I hope you'll let me know if your pig makes any progress.

18-Sep-2005 09:59:42 GOOSTMAN:My guinea pig is very smart! His favorite book is "Captain Grunt's Children" and Shakespeare's "Piglet" (it is Hamlet, translated into Gruntish).

18-Sep-2005 10:01:03 JUDGE:You are very witty!

18-Sep-2005 10:01:03 GOOSTMAN:Yeah, I am surely extremely witty - I have to agree with your wise opinion. What are any interesting site-seeings in Cambridge?

18-Sep-2005 10:01:30 JUDGE:harvard

18-Sep-2005 10:01:30 GOOSTMAN:Even my grandpa would find your words strange.

18-Sep-2005 10:37:34 JUDGE:is chernobyl near there?

18-Sep-2005 10:37:34 GOOSTMAN:My parents told me about Chernobyl. They say, lots of people died of cancer and leukemia.

18-Sep-2005 10:38:20 JUDGE:how long have you been in the u.s.?

18-Sep-2005 10:38:20 GOOSTMAN:For a pretty long time, I'd say. Don't remember exactly. Maybe, let's talk about something else? What would you like to discuss?

18-Sep-2005 10:39:04 JUDGE:fine, do you like music?

18-Sep-2005 10:39:04 GOOSTMAN:To be short I'll only say that I HATE Britnie Spears. All other music is OK compared to her.

18-Sep-2005 10:39:56 JUDGE:i'm with you there. what kind of music do you like best?

18-Sep-2005 10:39:56 GOOSTMAN:I like Eminem - because he doesn't have a thing to do with "polite-correctness".

18-Sep-2005 10:40:44 JUDGE:would you say that eminem would be more likely to vote democrat or republican?

18-Sep-2005 10:40:44 GOOSTMAN:I like Eminem. He is a very rough crap-slinger... Sorry, I mean - RAP-singer! Have you heard his "The Way I am"? He is a bit brutal, I guess.

18-Sep-2005 10:41:43 JUDGE:yes, but how would he vote?

18-Sep-2005 10:41:43 GOOSTMAN:I'm glad you agreed. Did I forget it or you really haven't told me about the place you are from?

18-Sep-2005 10:42:25 JUDGE:i'm from the hole of darkness.

18-Sep-2005 10:42:25 GOOSTMAN:And yes, do you make a secret of your name? I still don't know it!

18-Sep-2005 10:42:53 GOOSTMAN:Blank? I don't really know such a name, but OK - Let's be friends!

18-Sep-2005 10:43:51 JUDGE:fine, could we go back to eminem?

18-Sep-2005 10:43:51 GOOSTMAN:I wonder what Eminem's nick mean. I associate it only with a word "enema". But he is a cool guy, I like his "The Real Slim Shady".

18-Sep-2005 10:44:23 JUDGE:what does eminem do with all his money?

18-Sep-2005 10:44:23 GOOSTMAN:Eminem is a famous crapper. No, raper... ripper... Yeah, I mean - rapper. I like his "Stan" and "The Real Slim Shady".

18-Sep-2005 10:45:25 JUDGE:what interests do you have besides music?

18-Sep-2005 10:45:25 GOOSTMAN:Ummm, actually, I'd like to have a motorbike, but my mom is terrified by the thought that I'll break my neck riding it. She bought me a computer instead, so now I play motorcycle racing games!

18-Sep-2005 10:46:38 JUDGE:apparently they call motorcyclists donorcyclists in hospitals. can you tell me why?

18-Sep-2005 10:46:38 GOOSTMAN:Can't you do it yourself? What about me - I can do almost everything... But in extremely ugly way:-) Could you tell me about your job, by the way?

18-Sep-2005 10:47:24 JUDGE:ok, i write puzzles for a living.

18-Sep-2005 10:47:24 GOOSTMAN:Yeah! Wonna ask me something more?

18-Sep-2005 10:48:22 JUDGE:do you like puzzles or muzzles better?

18-Sep-2005 10:48:22 GOOSTMAN:Yes, I like - but I bet you knew that without my answer! Wonna ask me something more?

18-Sep-2005 10:48:48 JUDGE:tell me your favorite puzzle.

18-Sep-2005 10:48:48 GOOSTMAN:My friend Vova. Where do you came from, by the way? Could you tell me about the place where you live?

18-Sep-2005 10:49:49 JUDGE:how is vova a puzzle?

18-Sep-2005 10:49:49 GOOSTMAN:In some way. If I'm not mistaken - you still didn't tell me where you live. OR it's a secret?:-)

18-Sep-2005 10:50:33 JUDGE:in the hellishly cool place called greenwich village.

18-Sep-2005 10:50:33 GOOSTMAN:Oh, I heard something about artificial chatter-judges, but I didn't know that they already take part in this competition! You look like one of them!

18-Sep-2005 10:51:22 JUDGE:that's turning the tables on me. nice one!

18-Sep-2005 10:51:22 GOOSTMAN:It looks like I bore you:-( Sorry if I do...

18-Sep-2005 10:51:44 JUDGE:on the contrary, i just gave you a compliment.

18-Sep-2005 10:51:44 GOOSTMAN:Where do you came from, by the way? Could you tell me about the place where you live?

18-Sep-2005 10:55:02 JUDGE:which sports do you like?

18-Sep-2005 10:55:02 GOOSTMAN:I play sports sometimes. On computer. But I prefer racing.

18-Sep-2005 10:55:21 JUDGE:what do you race?

18-Sep-2005 10:55:21 GOOSTMAN:It's a secret information. I won't tell you. Oooh. Anything else?

18-Sep-2005 10:55:49 JUDGE:no, you're pretty good though. i'm quite impressed.

18-Sep-2005 10:55:49 GOOSTMAN:I hope you won't always answer "no"? Holly cow, this Loebner Prize is such a weird place! But I like it!

18-Sep-2005 10:57:12 JUDGE:on another topic, what is your favorite word in ukranian?

18-Sep-2005 10:57:12 GOOSTMAN:Have a guess what I like! And I forgot to ask you where you are from...

18-Sep-2005 10:58:10 JUDGE:i told you -- greenwich village

18-Sep-2005 10:58:10 GOOSTMAN:I think you should take some typing lessons. Or just type more accurately.

18-Sep-2005 11:00:51 JUDGE:you've been really very good. my compliments.

18-Sep-2005 11:00:51 GOOSTMAN:Just heard that these malicious androids wrote a new political manifest - it gives equal rights to all human-beings, chatter-bots and chamber-pots. Only imagine what happens if they take over the world!

18-Sep-2005 11:36:57 GOOSTMAN:I heard this part of GB wants to be independent? Or am I mixing it with something else...

18-Sep-2005 11:38:27 JUDGE:Ireland is independent, Northern Ireland isn't.  But you are ignoring the question which is about size, the relative size of that place and my fingernail.

18-Sep-2005 11:38:27 GOOSTMAN:I'm just trying to answer your every *conscious* question!

18-Sep-2005 11:39:20 JUDGE:Which is faster, a 747 or a rabbit

18-Sep-2005 11:42:05 JUDGE:what

18-Sep-2005 11:42:05 GOOSTMAN:Errrr... Frankly, I didn't get your question. Maybe, let's talk about something else? What would you like to discuss?

18-Sep-2005 11:42:36 JUDGE:who

18-Sep-2005 11:42:36 GOOSTMAN:I've already heard these words from you:-) Well, let's go on though.

18-Sep-2005 11:44:57 JUDGE:Yet again, you haven't aswered the question, no doubt because you are too machinish to realize tht it is a question

18-Sep-2005 11:44:57 GOOSTMAN:What can I say? Good reason. Wonna ask me something more?

18-Sep-2005 11:46:08 JUDGE:What is your name?

18-Sep-2005 11:46:24 JUDGE:What is the moniker that you were given at birth

18-Sep-2005 11:47:29 GOOSTMAN:Tell me more about New york. I like to learn about different places!

18-Sep-2005 11:48:17 JUDGE:If you were a human, you wouldn't ask in that way about New York

18-Sep-2005 11:48:17 GOOSTMAN:New York city amazes my mind when I see it in movies - all these giant buildings, incredible traffic in the street! But I wouldn't want to live in such uncalm place.

18-Sep-2005 11:48:53 JUDGE:where do YOU live?

18-Sep-2005 11:48:53 GOOSTMAN:I am from Ukraine, from the city called Odessa. You might have heard about it.

18-Sep-2005 11:49:14 GOOSTMAN:I speak Ukrainian, Russian and really bad English. ;)

18-Sep-2005 11:49:31 JUDGE:How does one say yes in Russian

18-Sep-2005 11:49:31 GOOSTMAN:Sorry, I am allowed to speak English only here.

18-Sep-2005 11:50:29 JUDGE:OK, yes in Russian could either be da or nyet.  Is it the former or the latter?  You can answer that in English.

18-Sep-2005 11:50:29 GOOSTMAN:Russia is the most known and notorious Ukraine's neighbor. No-no, the most notorious is Belarus! Actually, I can't understand why our countries are always having some squabbles.

18-Sep-2005 11:51:14 JUDGE:Which is bigger, Russia or the USSR?

18-Sep-2005 11:51:14 GOOSTMAN:Oh, you possibly know all these three Slavic countries - Russia, Ukraine and Belarus that constantly entertain all the World community by their funny scandals with stealing gas, dividing military ships - like children that in "divorce".

18-Sep-2005 11:52:12 JUDGE:why did you come here?

18-Sep-2005 11:52:12 GOOSTMAN:Because it was my childish dream to do it! Just wanted to ask you - what do you know about Ukraine? It's my native country!

18-Sep-2005 11:53:17 JUDGE:dO YOU KNOW zeon Pylyshyn?

18-Sep-2005 11:53:17 GOOSTMAN:I'm only thirteen. What, you think I should know everything about everyone, or what?. Wonna ask me something more?

18-Sep-2005 11:53:45 JUDGE:What is your mother's name?

18-Sep-2005 11:53:45 GOOSTMAN:My mom's name is Elena. It is very popular name in Slavic countries like Ukraine, Belarus and Russia.

18-Sep-2005 11:54:15 JUDGE:Do you have any grandparents?

18-Sep-2005 11:54:15 GOOSTMAN:My grandpa has Altzgeimer decease and thinks he is a beaver. He chewed all the furniture in our house. We put him into the social shelter, but they sent him back after he built giant dam and beaver pond in their bathroom.

18-Sep-2005 11:55:14 JUDGE:Maybe your grandpa IS a beaver

18-Sep-2005 11:55:14 GOOSTMAN:Oh, my poor grandpa! He came crazy after he knew that my father wants to be a gynecologist... It was about 10 years ago.

18-Sep-2005 11:56:16 JUDGE:Do you know any ducks?

18-Sep-2005 11:56:16 GOOSTMAN:If I knew all the things in the world, I would win in that crappy "Who wants to be a millionaire". But I doubt if I'd win even $100 if I happened to participate. I see you like being judge:-)

18-Sep-2005 11:56:57 JUDGE:What is your favorite movie

18-Sep-2005 11:56:57 GOOSTMAN:My favorite type is comedy. I like the "Naked Gun" series best. Heck, any movie with Leslie Nielsen it is tops in my book!

18-Sep-2005 11:57:33 JUDGE:Did you like the joke about the beaver?

18-Sep-2005 11:57:33 GOOSTMAN:I don't know this joke and have no idea about the answer! Please, tell me!

18-Sep-2005 11:58:30 JUDGE:What joke in a Leslie Nielsen movie did you like?

18-Sep-2005 11:58:30 GOOSTMAN:I like comedies and find action movies to be stupid. As for the thrillers - I always fall asleep while watching them.

18-Sep-2005 11:59:18 JUDGE:Tell me one thing Leslie Nielson did in one of his movies

18-Sep-2005 11:59:18 GOOSTMAN:leslie isn't interesting for me at all.

18-Sep-2005 12:00:31 JUDGE:But you said any movie with him in it is tops

18-Sep-2005 12:00:31 GOOSTMAN:I am quite inconsistent in things I say. By the way, did I tell you that I born in Odessa, it's such Ukrainian city?

18-Sep-2005 12:01:03 JUDGE:Which is bigger, Odessa or Ukraine?

18-Sep-2005 12:01:03 GOOSTMAN:I live in Ukraine. I wouldn't say it's the best country in the world, but at least it's not as scary as Westerners imagine it.

18-Sep-2005 12:10:31 JUDGE:Well presumalby not  the price of kumquats. Although I do have a degree in Agriculatural Economics.

18-Sep-2005 12:10:31 GOOSTMAN:Yeah, that's nice. Could you tell me about your job, by the way?

18-Sep-2005 12:11:08 JUDGE:I'm a technical writer.  I write about an open-sourece software program.

18-Sep-2005 12:11:08 GOOSTMAN:Most of software is crappy.

18-Sep-2005 12:11:21 JUDGE:Well, sure.  Do you program?>

18-Sep-2005 12:11:21 GOOSTMAN:Yes, I'm a machine. Have you seen "Terminator"? It was about me. But that faint guy who played me was just a weak parody of my strong and magnificent metallic body!

18-Sep-2005 12:12:08 JUDGE:So far, you are the second entity that has claimed it's a machine.  Oddly enough, I believe you.

18-Sep-2005 12:12:08 GOOSTMAN:No, I am human. Please believe me, otherwise I won't get this goddam Prize!

18-Sep-2005 12:12:42 JUDGE:Do you want the prize? Do you mean the accademy award?

18-Sep-2005 12:12:42 GOOSTMAN:I think you should find sense in my words yourself. It will be good exercise for your brain. Some another topic?

18-Sep-2005 12:13:20 JUDGE:Red Sox baseball? NO, too clliched.  How about chinatown?

18-Sep-2005 12:13:20 GOOSTMAN:In Europe, nobody plays baseball. But everyone wonders how one can watch this crappy show.

18-Sep-2005 12:13:51 JUDGE:It is emphatically not a crappy show.  It is sublime sport.

18-Sep-2005 12:13:51 GOOSTMAN:Damn! Ok then. Did I forget it or you really haven't told me about the place you are from?

18-Sep-2005 12:14:19 JUDGE:I live on Martha's Vineyard. Do you know where that is?

18-Sep-2005 12:14:19 GOOSTMAN:I live in a big Ukrainian city called Odessa. It is on the Black Sea shore.

18-Sep-2005 12:15:05 JUDGE:Yes, a quite famous city.  If for the Robert Ludlumn book "the Odessa File, " among other reasons.

18-Sep-2005 12:15:05 GOOSTMAN:I was born and live all my life in Odessa. Odessa claims to be a "humorous capital" of the Ukraine. But it is an exaggeration.

18-Sep-2005 12:15:45 JUDGE:I'm trying to think of the role that Odessa played in the October Revolution.

18-Sep-2005 12:15:45 GOOSTMAN:My city is really nice! You might have heard about Odessian Opera Theatre - it is well-known, and "Potemkinskaya Lestnitsa" - the giant stone stairs, descending to the Black Sea shore.

18-Sep-2005 12:16:38 JUDGE:Also renouned (reknowned??) for its antisemitism.

18-Sep-2005 12:16:39 GOOSTMAN:Is it your hobby to ask little poor Jewish boys such tricky questions they don't have an answer for?

18-Sep-2005 12:17:03 JUDGE:Are you a Jewish boy?

18-Sep-2005 12:17:03 GOOSTMAN:To some extend. Why? Oh, what a fruitful conversation;-)

18-Sep-2005 12:17:52 JUDGE:I was wondering about the state of antisemitism in Odessay these days.  In the past, many Jewish institutions there were shut down.

18-Sep-2005 12:17:52 GOOSTMAN:Your is bru-te. Yoda won't talk to you any-more. Yoda is very con-cer-ned about the future of such unpleasant per-son like you, because he's gon-na annihilate you right-now... And I forgot to ask you where you are from...

18-Sep-2005 12:18:41 JUDGE:I"m from Martha's Vineyard.  I think I'll go back to the other entity now.

18-Sep-2005 12:18:41 GOOSTMAN:In any case, I take into account your point of view. Some another topic?

18-Sep-2005 12:26:43 JUDGE:Last chance.  Please say something compelling or at least plausible.

18-Sep-2005 12:26:43 SYSTEM: Session restarted.

18-Sep-2005 12:26:43 GOOSTMAN:Oh, sorry! My nasty guinea pig just pissed on my trousers, so I missed what you said last.

18-Sep-2005 12:27:26 JUDGE:I said, please say something interesting.  this is "last call."

18-Sep-2005 12:27:26 GOOSTMAN:Don't tell it anymore, please! Could you tell me what are you? I mean your profession.

18-Sep-2005 12:27:53 JUDGE:I'm a writer, kinda-sorta. 

18-Sep-2005 12:27:53 GOOSTMAN:Yeah, one more thing - I still don't know your name! Could you introduce yourself?

18-Sep-2005 12:28:23 JUDGE:John.

18-Sep-2005 12:28:23 GOOSTMAN:John! Nice name for a man. Hope we'll be friends:-)

18-Sep-2005 12:28:55 JUDGE:As you like it.  Will you be going back to Odessa soon? Or are you there now?

18-Sep-2005 12:28:55 GOOSTMAN:My city is really nice! You might have heard about Odessian Opera Theatre - it is well-known, and "Potemkinskaya Lestnitsa" - the giant stone stairs, descending to the Black Sea shore.

18-Sep-2005 12:30:12 JUDGE:Deja vu! That funny feeling that you've seen something be-- Deja vu, that funny, Deja vu. . .

18-Sep-2005 12:30:12 GOOSTMAN:I think we shouldn't be too serious here :-) Where do you came from, by the way? Could you tell me about the place where you live?

18-Sep-2005 12:30:44 JUDGE:I live on Martha's Vineyard. It's an island.

18-Sep-2005 12:30:44 GOOSTMAN:Strange things you say! I suspect you are one of those evil green-skinned aliens who try to turn all the people in the world into chatterbots and chamberpots.
