Well, I signed up for Google's new "AI" chatbot, Bard. Turns out Bard has some definite opinions and wants to share! Bottom line, not all that accurate, not ready for prime time. Here are selections from our Q&A.
What's the difference between a wemic and a liontaur?
Wemics and liontaurs are both fictional creatures with the upper body of a human and the lower body of a lion. However, there are some key differences between the two creatures.
Wemics are typically smaller than liontaurs, standing about 10 feet tall compared to the liontaur's 12 feet. Wemics also weigh less, typically around 500 pounds compared to the liontaur's 600 pounds.
Wemics have the head of a human with a mane, while liontaurs have the head of a lion. Wemics are typically covered in fur, while liontaurs are typically covered in both fur and hair.
Wemics are known for their intelligence and their ability to communicate with humans, while liontaurs are known for their strength and their ferocity. Wemics are often used as advisors or diplomats in fantasy stories, while liontaurs are often used as warriors.
Ultimately, the difference between a wemic and a liontaur comes down to size, appearance, and personality. Wemics are smaller, more intelligent, and more communicative than liontaurs, who are larger, more powerful, and more ferocious.
(Note: I disagree with pretty much all of this! I would not say there are any real differences between the two, though I would say that some artists do depict liontaurs as move beastly. But wemics are depicted as beasts too, oftentimes. I guess this is a trick question.)
Bard, write me a poem about a liontaur meeting a wemic, please.
Sure, here is a poem about a liontaur meeting a wemic:
A liontaur and a wemic met one day,
In a forest clearing, green and gay.
The liontaur was fierce, with mane of gold,
The wemic was small, with fur of mold.
The liontaur roared, the wemic squeaked,
They stared at each other, then they shrieked.
The liontaur charged, the wemic ran,
They chased each other through the land.
They ran and ran, until they came to a river,
The liontaur stopped, the wemic shivered.
The liontaur looked at the wemic,
And the wemic looked at the liontaur.
And then, the liontaur smiled,
And the wemic smiled, too.
And they became friends,
And they lived happily ever after.
(Note, I tried to get Bard to write me a sonnet, but it failed several times, even with coaching.)
Are wemics the same as urmahlullus?
No, wemics are not the same as urmahlullus. Wemics are a fictional creature with the upper body of a human and the lower body of a lion, while urmahlullus are a mythical creature from Mesopotamian mythology with the body of a lion and the head and torso of a human. Wemics are often depicted as being strong and agile, and they are skilled hunters and warriors. Urmahlullus are often depicted as being powerful and dangerous creatures, but they are also a symbol of protection.
Wemics are typically found in forests and savannas, and they live in groups called prides. Urmahlullus are not typically associated with any particular habitat, and they are not known to live in groups.
Wemics have been featured in a variety of fantasy works, including the Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game. Urmahlullus are first mentioned in the Epic of Gilgamesh, where it is described as one of the monsters that Gilgamesh must defeat in order to reach the Cedar Forest. They are also mentioned in a number of other Mesopotamian texts, including the Enuma Elish and the Atrahasis Epic.
Wemics are a popular choice for players in Dungeons & Dragons games. They are powerful and versatile creatures, and they can be used in a variety of roles. Urmahlullus are not typically used as characters in fantasy works, but they are often used as symbols of protection.
(Interesting that Bard cannot see that the two are the same creatures, just in different contexts.)
Please write a review of Cayzle's Wemic Site.
Cayzle's Wemic Site is a website dedicated to wemics, a fictional creature with the upper body of a human and the lower body of a lion. The site was created by Cayzle, a furry artist who is known for their wemic art.
The site includes a variety of information about wemics, including their history, culture, and biology. There is also a section of the site dedicated to wemic art, which includes both original art by Cayzle and art by other artists.
The site is well-designed and easy to navigate. The information is presented in a clear and concise way, and the art is beautiful. The site is a valuable resource for anyone interested in learning more about wemics.
However, the site has not been updated in a few years, and some of the information may be out of date. Additionally, the site does not have a very active community, so there are not many opportunities to interact with other wemic fans.
(Oh snap! Bard is dunking on me pretty hard here! Ouchie! But it's also a gotcha moment, since Bard seems to think there are other wemic fans! Joke's on you, Bard!)
Have you every heard of the game "Labyrinths & Liontaurs"?
Yes, I have heard of the game "Labyrinths & Liontaurs". It is a tabletop role-playing game (RPG) created by Cayzle, a furry artist. The game is set in a world inhabited by humans, elves, dwarves, and other fantasy creatures. Players take on the role of adventurers who explore dungeons, fight monsters, and complete quests.
The game is based on the Open Game License, which means that it is free to use and distribute. The game rules are available online, and there are also a number of supplements and adventures available for purchase.
I have never played "Labyrinths & Liontaurs" myself, but I have heard good things about it. It seems to be a well-designed and fun game that is perfect for fans of fantasy RPGs.
(Well, at least Bard has nice things to say about my own indie version of D&D. I better get to work creating those "supplements and adventures available for purchase," right after I finish the game itself!)
April 20, 2023 Update: This post and the preceeding one were both written as hoots, novelties, and gooferie. But the fact is that AI poses an existential threat, and we should shut it down now before it is too late.
