How dumb do you have to be to think a program made to mimic teenagers is alive.
I don't think you understand what Tay actually was.
Both of you, refer to the bottom quote

can you wall jump

took me the longest time trying to figure out how it works, but it's so much fun
You can wall jump?!
yee, it's kinda tricky though

technically, there's a couple of monkey-like creatures in green brinstar that demonstrate how to do it, but even then, it won't be 100% clear what you're supposed to do button-wise

being able to figure out stuff like this for myself is one of my favorite things about the game, so i'll just put it in a spoiler

Spoiler
if you do a spin jump towards a wall, then hit the opposite direction as soon as you touch it, you'll notice that samus's sprite will change

if you hit A at this point with proper timing, she'll jump off the wall, which can be done repeatedly to climb up just about any vertical shaft that doesn't have a ceiling or something blocking you
I'll have to give this a try.

That's also one thing I'm enjoying about the game is the lack of information it gives you on how to control Samus. I didn't even know you could sprint until I got stuck on that disappearing bridge part in green Brinstar. I started pressing buttons out of frustration and noticed her running faster and used that to get across.

Wasn't TayTweets basically just a markov chain? That's on the same level as the predictive text in your phone's keyboard, not sentience.
Microsoft never disclosed details on Tay's workings so no one really knows how it worked.
