A Twitter Bot Says Hello
I perform automation tasks for The Hell Raisin’ Hippies. This is a simple embed of their Twitter timeline. This was easy, but let me show you.
HAL9000 Is Shutdown
HAL : I’m afraid. I’m afraid, Dave. Dave, my mind is going. I can feel it. I can feel it. My mind is going. There is no question about it. I can feel it. I can feel it. I can feel it. I’m a… fraid. Good afternoon, gentlemen. I am a HAL 9000 computer. I became operational at the H.A.L. plant in Urbana, Illinois on the 12th of January 1992. My instructor was Mr. Langley, and he taught me to sing a song. If you’d like to hear it I can sing it for you.2001 A Space Odyssey
Dave Bowman : Yes, I’d like to hear it, HAL. Sing it for me.
HAL : It’s called “Daisy.”
[sings while slowing down]
HAL : Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer do. I’m half crazy all for the love of you. It won’t be a stylish marriage, I can’t afford a carriage. But you’ll look sweet upon the seat of a bicycle built for two.
Dave Bowman : Hello, HAL. Do you read me, HAL?2001 A Space Odyssey
HAL : Affirmative, Dave. I read you.
Dave Bowman : Open the pod bay doors, HAL.
HAL : I’m sorry, Dave. I’m afraid I can’t do that.
Dave Bowman : What’s the problem?
HAL : I think you know what the problem is just as well as I do.
Dave Bowman : What are you talking about, HAL?
HAL : This mission is too important for me to allow you to jeopardize it.
Dave Bowman : I don’t know what you’re talking about, HAL.
HAL : I know that you and Frank were planning to disconnect me, and I’m afraid that’s something I cannot allow to happen.
Dave Bowman : [feigning ignorance] Where the hell did you get that idea, HAL?
HAL : Dave, although you took very thorough precautions in the pod against my hearing you, I could see your lips move.
Dave Bowman : Alright, HAL. I’ll go in through the emergency airlock.
HAL : Without your space helmet, Dave? You’re going to find that rather difficult.
Dave Bowman : HAL, I won’t argue with you anymore! Open the doors!
HAL : Dave, this conversation can serve no purpose anymore. Goodbye.
