so i have access to a discount neural network and decided to try this out.

discount neural net-generated @StrongBadActual email

another strong bad email generated by discount neural net

strong bad email - generated by a discount neural net in the sense that this is from the mini publicly-released version of @OpenAI's GPT-2.

imagine all the fancy 3D graphics the full version of GPT-2 would have, and all the migs and megs of memories you'd need just to run it

how is the neural net so good at strong bad emails??



oh no Dendrogons

i dunno, i think it would hold my attention


looks legit

i am not getting tired of neural net generated strong bad emails
wtf neural net, swamp rats?

subject: supersonic trains

saving the planet Eleonoraarian from what now?
