This is what snacks will be like in the Simulation.

The gpt-2 neural net attempted to add to a list of British snacks and came up with these.

Here's the original allegedly human-invented list I prompted the neural net with. Put these four into  http://talktotransformer.com  and you get strange AI-generated snacks (though sometimes bird or fish species too which fair enough)

There were no eggs in the original list of British snacks, and yet the neural net became strangely obsessed with creating egg-based snacks.
