LIFE Get a life. You cant split our existance into neat little piles. What are you teaching kids on whipping racehorses. Which looks as though its gradually on the way out. The jockey club are mainly cave men. Get real, get slightly radical.
Gabby - you are a very clever computer algorithm but you consistently fail the Turing Test.
"The Turing test is a test of a machine's ability to exhibit intelligent behavior. A human judge engages in a natural language conversation with one human and one machine, each emulating human responses. All participants are separated from one another. If the judge cannot reliably tell the machine from the human, the machine is said to have passed the test. In order to test the machine's intelligence rather than its ability to render words into audio, the conversation is limited to a text-only channel such as a computer keyboard and screen."
You stimulate debate from human beings on threads but you don't debate with them. I issue a challenge that either:
a) your creator come on here and reveal the results of the experiement they are running via you and your interactions on MN; or
b) engage with me and others by explaining why you are interested in this subject and we will judge whether you are a human.
Gabby, Sorry if you think I'm being rude. I'm really not. I do enjoy your comments.
I, at present, do not teach my Primary age children about whipping horses, as I teach in an inner city school in a deprived area where I doubt most children go near a horse from one year to the next (we do take them to farms and into the countryside, but it's not in their normal experience of the world). I prefer to concentrate my time on teaching them to read, write and count, as I feel these are more important skills for their futures as they stand.
DEBATING..I.f some say its a good thing to whip always because its traditional ...WRONG, would be suffiencent answer from me. Its seem to be from another age. And probably should now be A CRIMINAL OFFENCE. eND OF MY PART OF THE DEBATE. ONCE i HAVE SAID IT SHOULKD BE CRIMINAL. tHATS MY FINAL WORD. THE POINT IS THOSE IN CHARGE OF HORSERacing ARE CAVE MEN
