Query: "Driving directions between Stamford, CT and Raleigh, NC that entirely avoid I-95."

Roadgeekteen:
I have Chat GPT plus which allows access to GPT 4, so this might be more detailed than GPT 3 would be

To avoid I-95 while traveling between Stamford, CT, and Raleigh, NC, you can follow this alternate route using primarily I-84, I-81, and I-77:

Start in Stamford, CT, and head north on I-684.
Take exit 9E to merge onto I-84 E toward Danbury, CT.
Continue on I-84 E for approximately 56 miles.
Merge onto I-691 W via exit 27 toward I-91/Meriden/Waterbury.
After 8.5 miles, take exit 1 to merge onto I-91 S toward New Haven.

--- Quote from: Scott5114 on February 22, 2023, 06:51:08 AM ---Prompt: Write the national anthem for an absurd country called Alanland that values goats and quoting long posts


--- Quote from: ChatGPT ---O Alanland, we hail thee,
Our country of goats and posts,
We honor thy greatness,
And all that it boasts.

Our loyalty is strong,
Our spirit is true,
Our goats are our pride,
And our posts are our due.

We'll fight for our right,
To quote and to post,
Our goats are the best,
From coast to coast.

Our Alanland is grand,
And our future is bright,
Our people are strong,
And our goats are a sight.

So raise up your voice,
And sing out with pride,
For our Alanland,
We will always abide.

For intended-to-be-factual content, though, it does worse (wrong parts underlined):

--- Quote from: ChatGPT ---Interstate 44 is a major highway that runs through the central United States, connecting the states of Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas, and a small portion of Kansas. The highway is approximately 634 miles long, beginning at the junction of Interstate 70 and Interstate 55 in downtown St. Louis, Missouri, and ending in Wichita Falls, Texas, at the Texas-Oklahoma border.

Interstate 44 passes through several major cities, including Springfield and Joplin, Missouri; Tulsa and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; and Wichita Falls, Texas. It is an important route for both commercial and personal travel, linking major metropolitan areas in the Midwest and the southern Great Plains. The highway's construction began in the 1950s and was completed in the 1970s. Along its route, it passes through a diverse range of landscapes, including rolling hills, flat plains, and mountainous terrain.

--- Quote from: ChatGPT ---Oklahoma Highway 152 is a state highway located in western Oklahoma, USA. It runs approximately 82 miles in an east-west direction, connecting the towns of Sayre, Cordell, and Weatherford. The highway begins at the Texas-Oklahoma border and ends at an intersection with Interstate 40 in Weatherford.

Oklahoma Highway 152 passes through a mostly rural landscape and is surrounded by farmland and grassland. It is an important route for commercial and personal travel, connecting several small towns along its path. The highway's western end is near the Texas Panhandle, and it is often used as a route to access destinations in western Oklahoma from the neighboring state. Oklahoma Highway 152 was established in the early 1930s and has since undergone several realignments and construction projects. Today, it remains an important transportation link for the region.

I dunno where it got Weatherford from. It kind of sounds like it's mixing up OK-152 and I-40. It actually ends at I-44 in Oklahoma City, and is 149 miles long.

When it gets really bad, though, is when you ask it a question that is itself sort of wrong. Here, I asked about OK-41, which is just the previous number OK-152 was (but someone might not know that if they just ran across it on an old map). The answer should be more or less the same as the above, but instead we get:


--- Quote from: ChatGPT ---Oklahoma Highway 41 is a state highway located in central and eastern Oklahoma, USA. The highway runs approximately 120 miles from the town of Hennessey in central Oklahoma to the town of Siloam Springs, Arkansas, at the Oklahoma-Arkansas border.

Oklahoma Highway 41 passes through several smaller towns and rural areas and is a two-lane road for much of its length. The highway is an important route for local and regional travel, connecting several communities and providing access to recreational areas along the way. It is also a designated scenic route in parts, offering views of rolling hills, farmland, and forests.

The highway was originally established in the 1920s and has undergone several realignments and construction projects over the years, including adding turn lanes and improving bridges. Today, it remains an important transportation link for the region and is used by local residents, commercial vehicles, and travelers passing through Oklahoma.

This seems like a mishmash of parts of OK-51 and US-412. What it is not is any highway that's ever actually existed in Oklahoma, much less with the number 41.
