@Broadway - I have learned to do so as well.  It's like a "reprogramming" of the computer in my brain :)

I really have tried to clean up my ways @vnewman, and not all just in big ways like less late nights out at the bar. Little things. It is scary crazy how kids pick up on mannerisms, habits, sayings and tendencies from adults around them. Original deep learning.

@vnewman, as a parent of young children, I have only just recently experienced that comeback, and boy, is it a doosie! My response was honesty. Yes, I do that.

Bad AI will only get more screaming.

It is so funny.  I think your AI needs a plate of good algorithms to digest before you send it to a good re-training class.

How funny. :D I would say that your AI needs some NLP and NLG lessons with carefully selected language.
