    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.
