The Turing Test poisoned the minds of generations of AI enthusiasts, because its criteria is producing text that persuades observers it was written by a human.

As a cat “owner”, I propose the following canonical rule: the cat face emojis are to be used to signal sarcasm or insincerity:
😢 = sadness; 😿 = aw diddums
😱 = horror; 🙀 = who could have predicted this?
😍 = adoration; 😻 = never buy me this
😂 = rofl; 😹 = schadenfreude
Best use of google eyes.

My current pet peeve - "at the end of the course, we'll check your learnings" 😭

Walking through the Newtown lanes, I passed a privet bush in full bloom. I hate that sickly sweet smell and it's a main contributor to my seasonal allergies - it's a weed that was everywhere when I was growing up in the country.
Masks are good, though. I could barely smell anything this time
@email@example.com that's very beautiful. Thanks for sharing
