Fooling Around with ChatGPT

We’ve been talking about and using Artificial Intelligence (AI) for quite a while. But this year is its major introduction to the public in a big way.

I finally opened an account today using a new gmail account because I’m not sure how intrusive this account may become. I also provided an alternate birthdate.

It’s impressive how AI can churn out information and responses in such speed. We know AI is the computerized gathering of data. But it’s still really impressive to me. It sounds like a human being even though it’s an artificial intelligence gathering data and then churning it all out in lightning speed. The artificial intelligence even can differentiate implications between a “work horse” versus a “show horse”. Some human beings can’t even do that.

Here is my first conversation. I’m teasing.

I agree with my husband’s philosophy about trucks. This PhD in Applied Linguistics professor emeritus has many varied interests. He enjoys farming and tinkering and repairing things. He lets the heavens wash his truck. I sometimes tease him that one of these days I’m going to put up a sign on the truck that says, ” Please steal me.”

Aloha! My husband and I have been married for 40 years. He has the habit of buying old trucks and then run each one of these trucks into the ground. He will then repeat this cycle. He says that he doesn’t need a “show horse” but a “work horse” for his farm truck.


Aloha! It sounds like your husband has a specific preference when it comes to his choice of trucks. While some people prefer having newer vehicles or “show horses,” he seems to prioritize functionality and reliability by opting for older trucks that can withstand the demands of farm work.

There can be benefits to this approach. Older trucks often have simpler mechanical systems, making them easier and cheaper to maintain and repair. They may also have fewer electronic components, which can be advantageous in rugged farm environments where the risk of damage or malfunction is higher. Additionally, older trucks may have a more rugged design and be better suited for off-road or heavy-duty tasks.

However, it’s important to consider the potential downsides as well. Older trucks may be less fuel-efficient, emit more pollutants, and lack modern safety features found in newer vehicles. They might also require more frequent repairs and maintenance, which could add up in terms of time and money spent.

Ultimately, the decision to prioritize function over aesthetics is a personal one. As long as your husband’s trucks serve their intended purpose effectively and safely, his preference for “work horses” seems reasonable. It might be worth discussing any concerns you have about safety or environmental impact with him, and finding a balance that works for both of you.


Aloha. His ugly truck leaks oil on the driveway. I would like to solve this problem once and for all. I’m wondering which is the best solution: Get rid of my husband of 40 years or get rid of his very old truck.


I’m sorry to hear that the oil leak from your husband’s truck is causing frustration. It’s important to approach this situation with understanding and open communication, rather than considering extreme measures like ending a long-term relationship. Here are some alternative suggestions to address the issue:

  1. Encourage maintenance and repairs: Discuss with your husband the importance of regular maintenance and repairs to address the oil leak. Sometimes, fixing a simple issue can significantly reduce or eliminate leaks. Offer support in finding a reliable mechanic or even learning some basic maintenance skills together.
  2. Seek professional help: If the oil leak persists despite attempts at repair, consider consulting with a professional mechanic or automotive expert. They may be able to identify the root cause of the leak and suggest appropriate solutions. It’s possible that a specific part needs to be replaced or that there are underlying issues that require attention.
  3. Explore eco-friendly alternatives: If the oil leak continues to be a concern and the truck is no longer meeting your needs, you can have a conversation with your husband about the possibility of considering a more eco-friendly alternative for the farm truck. This could involve exploring options like newer trucks with better fuel efficiency and reduced emissions or even considering electric vehicles if they are suitable for your farm needs.

Remember, relationships are built on understanding and compromise. Openly communicating your concerns and seeking mutually beneficial solutions will likely lead to a more positive outcome than contemplating drastic actions.


So, you think my husband of 40 years is more valuable than the old truck?


I apologize if my previous response seemed dismissive or gave that impression. The value of any relationship, especially one spanning 40 years, is significant and should not be easily discarded. Relationships are built on love, commitment, shared experiences, and a deep understanding of each other. They are often more important and valuable than material possessions.

In suggesting alternative solutions, my intention was to focus on finding a middle ground that addresses the issue at hand while preserving the relationship. It’s important to approach problems within a relationship with empathy and open communication, seeking compromise and understanding.

If the oil leak from the truck is causing significant issues and concerns, it would be helpful to have a conversation with your husband about finding a resolution that works for both of you. Discuss the impact the oil leak has on your daily life and the potential risks it poses. Together, you can explore possible solutions that may involve repairs, seeking professional help, or considering alternatives.

Remember, the goal is to find a solution that addresses the issue without sacrificing the valuable bond you share. Relationships require effort, understanding, and compromise, and it’s essential to approach any problem-solving with love and respect for one another.
