    if (age < 13) {
      console.printf("Sorry, you must be at least 13 to use this program. \n");
        System.exit(0);

i think this could be wrong

if (noun.equalsIgnoreCase("dork")) || 
      noun.equalsIgnoreCase("jerk"))
  {

try this:

if (noun.equalsIgnoreCase ("dork") || 
      noun.equalsIgnoreCase("jerk"))
  {

i deleted a single ")"
