Oh, Hello.

My name is Rebecca, or Becky, or Bec, or Brrrrakakakaka if you just like making silly noises. Thanks for letting me inside your head for the next few minutes. It's quite roomy in here, isn't it? No, wait—that's supposed to be a compliment. What I really mean is, I like the way you've arranged all the squishy bits. It's good Feng Shui... no? (No.)

I see you have many questions. You're wondering how the devil does ChatGPT work and will Neuralink break our brains and while we're on the subject, how do jellyfish have sex? I'm glad you asked. Because theses are exactly the kinds of questions I like to ponder.
