Sometimes when a potential client walks in the door, the lawyer needs to embrace the word “no!” Three and a half minutes? You are going to clog the court’s docket and delay actual justice sought by others for three and a half effing minutes?

Addendum: not a bobbie - a soldier. Sorry.
Yes - this is grist for my recent post, “The Greatest Intellectual Error of Modernity” - at work in no less than MIT! The scientists and technologists succeeded in splitting the atom; they may, one day succeed at fusing atoms. By comparison, the politicians and psychologists are succeeding wildly at splitting racial, ethnic, sexual, and interest groups; don’t expect to see much fusion of humanity through their tutelage for the foreseeable future (unless it results during a thermonuclear flash).
I wonder if it in this case the attorney did not in fact instigate the lawsuit - or went “shopping” for a suitable client…
So not only programming jobs pay well… deprogamming jobs as well?
A good opportunity to test the capabilities of GPT-3’s latest model, text-davinci-003, which was released earlier today.
Here was the output using text-davinci-002:
And this is what I got using the new text-davinci-003:
