    I very much enjoyed the auto­matic philoso­phies and the­o­rems. For philoso­phies, I’d change “weiner schnitzel” to “wiener schnitzel”. Pre­sum­ably this has no bear­ing on theorems. :-)

    Great stuff! Reminds me some­how of the 1960s com­puter psy­chol­o­gist ELIZA.

    Would there be a philosophy-of-the-day some time fea­tur­ing the Greek “Fear for Fri­day the Thir­teenth”?!

    Glad you like it! I may have had ELIZA in the back of my mind some­where when writ­ing the gram­mar rules — I remem­ber being amused by her around when I made this.
