Visit InspiroBot and receive your (allegedly) unique inspirational message(s). Post particularly profound ones here!

I received:
It is possible to be both a god and a zombie.
Be afraid and stay psychic.


  • Mr SmiffMr Smiff Shipmate
    I got:
    Be beautiful and be human.
    What made this special was the picture of the nuclear explosion chosen to accompany this message.

    I also got:
    A scream a day keeps the involuntary erections away.
    Which was... nice...
  • First attempt:
    A physical manifestation of consciousness is a cow, but it's not a street
    (What has InspiroBot been smoking?)

    Although I like the second thing it generated:
    With stupid smiles come stupid intelligences.
  • HedgehogHedgehog Shipmate
    First try:
    Being an oil executive is a lot like getting your nipples pierced. Claustrophobic.
    In all honesty, I don't find that inspirational. Or comprehensible.

    Second try was better:
    Be the first to prepare for what most people refuse to prepare for.
    It inspires me to be paranoid! :confounded: (yeah, we don't have the paranoid smilie any more.)

    Interesting--I received a message structurally similar to your second one ("Be the first in the world to trust something nobody else will trust"); we're getting clues on Inspirobot's programming.

    It’s never to late to kill someone

    True, true...
    Try to be unsustainable

    Yup. Done that.
    Between the ocean and a projector lies life

    After a few tries:
    Try not to call it an ending. Call it prison

    Made extra special by the photograph of the heavily pregnant woman that accompanied it.

  • I'd forgotten about InspiroBot. Might be useful fuel for time capsule letters...
  • here I am, sitting at work, minding my own business while quietly fuming about a perceived slight, when I get:
    hate does not equal blood

    ... which sounds vaguely like something Steve Bannon might say to fire up the white supremacists...
    never let a good body scrub get in the way of gateway drugs

    ... accompanied by a NWS photo
    between a lie and an actor is originality

    ...accompanied by a photo of an adult in an ill-fitting bunny costume staring into the sunset at the end of a short pier.

    What message are the AI gods sending me?

  • Before the talking dog comes boredom. Illustrated with a half-peeled banana...
  • Prostitution begins with our loved ones
    over a photograph of smoke on a black background.
    Automatize conventions
    Vilify core values
    Prostitute capacity.
    with a very blue photograph of a boat on a sea

  • Prostitution begins with our loved ones
    over a photograph of smoke on a black background.

    whoa, that one's cold, man.

    Be afraid and stay psychic.
    The photograph I remember was quite appropriate--a woman looking through a barred window.

    Automatize conventions
    Vilify core values
    Prostitute capacity.

    Can't tell if this is anti- or pro-business.
  • FirenzeFirenze Purgatory Host, Host Emeritus
    Trust Art

    That’s all ye know on earth and all ye need to know (trust me on this).
  • bassobasso Shipmate
    I got:
    Forget the rules
    Remember the truth

    (with a bust of, maybe, Aristotle)

    If that makes sense, it was followed by

    The simple fact that you are determined makes you wise.

    (Current counterexamples notwithstanding, I suppose.)
  • Without people there can be no failures.

    I think I might write a sermon based on that text.
  • Existence is EXACTLY like a rollercoaster ride.

    Who could argue with that?
  • BoogieBoogie Shipmate
    Quit humanising

    No I won’t - it’s fun!
  • Give up. Nobody is ordering you to dare.

    Tempting, tempting.

    Know milk. Stay real.
    (The bunny-suited-person-on-the-pier picture)

    Don't make art. Why not just think?
    (Cityscape with rainbow)
    That one actually makes a kind of sense...
  • When you understand how to make love to her, you understand how to be a jerk about her

    Well that's just weird. The second one was better:

    Which is a reasonably concise description of catastrophising, actually. Something I know about only too well.

    But the third one I got.

    Oh mama.
    Brain tumours allow us to masturbate what rational people see as unmasturbateable

    I'm'a just leave that one there and walk away............

    Life is short. Stop fucking around.
  • I tried, I really tried. But, sadly, inspiroBot didn't.

    Relying on a teacher to live like a slut is very very counterintuitive

    Well. OK.
  • BelisariusBelisarius Admin Emeritus
    Silence is madness you can put in your pocket.
    (Beer being poured against a black background)

    Actually took a snapshot of that one.
  • ClimacusClimacus Shipmate
    Ourselves begin where glory holes end.

    Oh my.

    We can never change things by resisting ourselves, but we can change things by strangling ourselves.

    If you are the only one laughing in the chaos, you are in the wrong chaos.

    Over a country road through a forest.
  • There's a clear correlation between politeness and virginity.
    against a night sky with mountains silhouetted.
    It's time for the public
    to start focusing on
    on a black background with a row of skulls at the bottom of the page

    I'm really not sure about this ...
  • I got "When in doubt, tell yourself that you are fabulous" against a background of a person looking up into the night sky. I have kept a copy!
  • I got:
    "The office" is a professional term for "graveyard."
    Laid over a photo of a man gazing into the sunset whilst apparently cleaning out his ear.

    Makes me really wonder about my role as clergy.
  • CathscatsCathscats Shipmate
    "You have always been a sissy", was less than inspiring.

    Better was "Love your children. It's OK"

    Best was "You don't have to stay young in order to destroy evil."
  • Parents are usually sexy

    And this piece of wisdom:

    The difference between self-knowledge and tea is that tea won't kill you

    We can
    make joy
    Get on the
    front pages

    "Sportsman" other people
    hear "Dentist"

    The first I got, with each word a different colour in a white box, was:


    Had to look in the dictionary for toxoplasmosis. Something to do with ‘crescentic uninucleate sporozoans.’

    Then I got, with a black and white seascape in the background, with the text between two rocks, and the shore underneath:

    Rule 11:
    Don’t let the
    things you
    contextualize get
    in the way of the
    things you

    Which kind of makes sense.
  • Tangent/ toxoplasmosis is a parasite which is not all that serious in itself but dangerous for pregnant women. You can pick it up from various kinds of raw foods. /tangent

    Silence only exists in your head.
  • sabine wrote: »

    I think this belongs on the contemplative prayer thread 😁
  • Don't stop being masturbated. Hmmm.....
  • BelisariusBelisarius Admin Emeritus
    InspiroBot does appear to have some fixations.
  • LydaLyda Shipmate
    "AI's are people, too."
    Sounds like a cry for help. There, there, InspiroBot. :pensive:
  • LydaLyda Shipmate
    This thing should work for
  • Being romantic is a type of being an asshole.

    Do I detect some bitterness on the part of Inspirobot?
  • Definitely, I got:
    Rule 10:
    Hate the silliness
    of love
    under a picture of a man sitting on the floor drawing/looking at papers on the floor with a pen in his hand.
