Who is that guy claiming he learned it from me?

Uh oh. Quoting me is like walking through a minefield with blindfolds on. Just should not be done.

Are you implying a negative impact of the consistency hypothesis?

A very negative impact.

Yes, due to the nature of the funniness of that remark.

Our Prince is a really strong, agile guy. He can hang by his fingertips

indefinitely. He has a vertical jump that about as high as he himself

is, and can swing from ropes and poles with the grace of an acrobat.

Is the Prince a bumpkin?

A prince is rarely if ever a bumpkin. Do they not come from royal bloodlines? A bumpkin is a peasant.

It is democratic to judge people based on their birth?

It is not my judgement, it is the judgement of society.

It is a bad thing to do. When our prince entered the kingdom, people thought he was a beggar. It is not right to judge people based upon their appearance, either.

What prince are you talking about.

I am afraid whether it is right or not we do tend to judge people first by what we see.

Hi;

I have discovered a truly marvelous way to create a conversation. Do I have the permission to post a result of that machinery?

The conversation is between a bot and (probably) a human.

The bot is the machinery
