2. Hello There, Planet Earth (easy)

About this example

Expanding on Hello World, this helper bot refines a broad question to a narrow question, in the style of 20 Questions, attempting to identify a (peculiar) animal, vegetable, or mineral, as an introduction to Earth lore. The example shows how to handle generic inputs with change of topic, and provides a preliminary introduction to phrasing.
