Default *Tonjiro-The-Demon-Slayer* Made Me $55.34

Tonjiro The Demon-Slayer,
Says, GRRRR,
Tonjiro is Covered w/Fur,
So He Never Goes, "BRRRR."

Thanks Dien/Gordon,

Took a Client to Lunch.

Noticed the coed RedHead Waitress had an odd Necklace.

I said, "What is the name of the CAT on Your Necklace?"

RedHead says, "I'd rather not say."

Teasing - I held up a LOTTO ticket. How about if I BRIBE you for the Cat's name?
We are on a Roll. Just had a waiter at the _______ Restaurant WIN 10 Bucks!

Red Says, "Ok. This is ***Tonjiro The Demon Slayer.*** My Favorite MANGA.

"Red" Leaves to get our drinks.

I tell my Guest Ted.

"QUICK. Help me Write a Poem about Tonjiro the Demon Slayer!

Ted Says, "HUH?

When Red Comes Back I hand her another lotto ticket. "How many cooks in the Kitchen? So I can TIP them too?"

Red - "THREE.

I hand her 3 Lotto tickets.

"Ok Ted What Rhymes with Slayer?

Air
Bear,
Brrr - that's good.

Cur
Fur - That works

Grrrr - Bingo.

I Write the Poem on a 3 by 5 Card.

RED comes Back with the Menus.

I say, "I Wrote a Poem for You About TONJIRO The Demon Slayer."

Red Grabs it.

Reads.

Face GLOWING. She jumps up and down a bit.

Hops and Skips Back to the Kitchen.

My Client orders Potato Soup and a couple Slices of Pizza.

I get Crab soup and Fries and Onion Rings.
(Veggie Sides)

A SMILING "Red" Comes Back to our Table. "BAD NEWS. The cooks Burned Your Pizza. So here is a Free Pizza - on The house."

AND I got Huge Plates full of Fries and Onion Rings. (Had to ask for a Box to Take them home. Enough Food for a small army.)

Ted is GOBSMACKED.

Ted Says, "Since mine is Free. Let me pick up the cost of your food."

14.99 Bucks

Ted Excitedly Chatters away with "Red", The Manager. The cook who brought my food from The Kitchen. And a Couple waiters I tip as they walk by.

Ted Follows me to a Nearby Grocery Store in His BMW.

Insists on Buying my groceries.

10.00 of Oranges
Bananas
Chicken Thighs
Strawberry iceCream
Yogurt

40 Bucks or so.

40 plus 15 = 55.00

AND Ted and I are now Talking about Doing some Marketing Biz together.

Thanks,
Glenn

Default A.I. wouldn't have a clue what to do with Tonjiro the Demon-Slayer!

Hi Glenn,

Thanks for sharing your story about Tonjiro the Demon-Slayer!

Clearly you found one of the waitress's "hot buttons"... She was "advertising" it on her neck, but you had to ask (and even bribe her) to really understand... But wow, was it worth it!

I love this story!

I've been delving into Artificial Intelligence, what it can do, and its limitations...

I'm pretty sure that A.I. would NEVER be able to do this!

Best wishes,

Dien

Default Maybe. But...

You future pocket computer(formerly cell)...lets call him HAL.

Will scan the waitress, use facial recognition, pull up all of her social media, identify the jewelry, and in this case, ID exactly what it is, so by the time she gets back to the table, Glenn knows what it is, can then carry on the convo with what seems to be like mind reading ability, and HAL will mention some of her fav songs, movies, likes, etc. He would know as much about Kimetso, his sister, and his love interest Kanao (all courtesy of current AI, aka Google).

When facial recognition is tied to all the data we have put out there, these types of encounters would be fairly routine.

Public records, social media, Internet use, schools, grades, where we lived, how much we made year by year, ALL of the DATA of a lifetime, can be quickly compiled and "computed" and spit out questions and surprises which will have all of our RAS' on stand down.

HAL is here. AI is here. They ain't going away. If you think copywriting is manipulation of emotions, just wait until AI has the data and your hot buttons will be easily pushed.

Thanks Gordon,

Elon admitted that Ai - Robot Driving is more Complicated than he thought.

And it will be YEARS before it's ready to replace Human Drivers.

WHEW!

Good News.

July 1957 Cover of Popular Mechanics...THE SOON TO ARRIVE

FLYING CAR. One of my fav issues.

Still waiting. I wonder if the auto pilot plane could have avoided the flock of birds which brought down US Airways flight 1549, the Sully miracle on the Hudson?

And where is the FREE electricity I was promised in Mother Earth News?

I think Musk is working on the Hallucinogenic Auto, where you take all your trips, only in your mind.

Default Still waiting for everyone to have a hovercraft... :)

Hi Gordon,

I'm also waiting for the future when everyone will use hovercrafts...

A vehicle that can travel on land AND water! Awesome!

But... (tick tick tick)... still waiting...

My imagination was sparked as a kid, in seeing a toy hovercraft model you could build, in one of my uncle's copies of "Popular Mechanics"...

Best wishes!

Dien

Default Free bonus hovercraft... :)

Hi Glenn!

Thanks for sharing that!

There's probably a marketing angle here... Like maybe some free news publicity, which can be used to increase awareness of his business offer!

(It makes me think of how Joe Cossman used to share photos of his newborn puppies in a local press release, while in the photo, using his flyers as paper lining for the box the puppies were in!)

Or... If he ever sells the house... He can sell the house with its own "free bonus hovercraft" !

(Just don't mention it's stuck in the basement!)

Best wishes,

Dien

Default A.I. doesn't like inconsistency and messiness!

Hi Glenn,

One of my brothers runs a fund where they focus on innovation...

It's been illuminating talking about the "self-driving cars" phenomenon with him over the years (as he's kept track of the developments)...

If everything followed the "rules" - it would be easy. But there are always things popping up that are not "cleanly" following the rules, that cause problems!

For example, road works... Suddenly, road works come up. Signs come up instructing cars to behave a certain way around the road works or construction zones...

Cars have to obey humans in uniform, giving hand signals on whether to go or to stop.

Humans have no problem with it.

Self-driving cars, though, at the moment, get flummoxed.

And the specific set up can be different for every different road works zone...

Real life is "messy"...

Like in your example with the waitress!

A.I. is great when the rules are consistent and clear. When things get "messy"... Well, I think that's when it can screw up...

It's really interesting trying to figure out A.I.'s limitations...

Best wishes!

Dien
