Markov Chains

Generating Iron Maiden lyrics with Markov chains

I’ve been wanting to play with Markov Chains for a while now, and now that I’m starting to get into Bayesian analysis I’m going to need to use them more often. One fun use of them is to generate text which can (at a stretch) pass as written by a drunk person. For nice examples of them in action have a look at Garkov (generated Garfield strips) or even an entire subreddit generated with them reddit.
