    I asked the "ChatGPT AI" to produce a complaint about the high cost of pinball machines, and it produced this...

    "I am extremely disappointed with the high cost of pinball machines these days. It seems like every time I go to a arcade or a bar that has a pinball machine, the cost to play is outrageous. Not only are the prices for a single game exorbitant, but many places also charge extra for unlimited play or offer a limited number of games for a set price.
    Furthermore, it seems like the cost of purchasing a pinball machine for personal use has also skyrocketed. It's hard to justify spending thousands of dollars on a single machine when there are so many other things I could be spending that money on.
    I understand that these machines require maintenance and upkeep, but the cost for playing or owning one just seems unreasonable. It's a shame because I used to love playing pinball, but now it's just not worth the cost."

    I then asked it to write a poem on the same topic, and it produced this...

    "The high cost of pinball machines,
    A price that seems to never decline,
    It takes a toll on the wallet and the mind,
    As players search for the perfect design.

    Some will scour the earth,
    For the latest and greatest,
    With flashing lights and sound,
    They'll spend their money without restraint.

    But for the true pinball fanatic,
    The cost is worth it all,
    For the thrill of the game,
    And the memories it will recall.

    So if you're looking for a pinball machine,
    Be prepared to pay the price,
    For the joy of the game,
    Is worth it all, at least twice."

    Too coherent, and not even a passing mention of the “bubble”. Disappointed in ChatGPT.

    I dig the poem! It's worth it all, at least twice!

    My question is can the bot learn to write responses just like Levi?

    A bot copy pastes things with ease I'm sure
