      Hey Guys! My friend introduced me to this iphone app called the "akinator" which is basically a 21 questions game where the software asks leading questions about a character, real or fictional that u are thinking about and then after a couple of questions guesses it.

      The sick thing about this is that he gets it right almost every time. So, I'm creating this thread to make u guys aware of this app, and since I found it on the web for free, I came up with a fun thing also. You can play it and try the weirdest characters that are at least partially known and post the results here if he gets them right. Remember not to think about ur unknown friend or something like that. I've tried a lot of poker players and he got them all right. So guys, write your weirdest guess that the akinator got right.

      Mine is: Wirt, the peg-legged boy from the diablo games. Pretty fucked up that he guessed it.

      http://en.akinator.com/#

      Have fun with it, it's a real timewaster

      he failed twice on both Misha Mansoor (lead guitarrist from Periphery) and Muhammed Suicmez (lead guit. from Necrophagist)... pretty weak... the german version knew both.

      It has a bit of a gap around well known New Zealand musicians.

      There is no such thing as well known new Zealand musicians :D the thing is that the database that he searches from is based from other people guessing. So when u guess and he doesn't find it, u can add it to the database, and then the next time someone answers the questions like you did, he will find this person. It's far from perfect, but some things that it finds really surprises me.

      Wow, pretty sick.
      I tried Gandhi, Phil Hellmuth, Vaclav Havel (former cz president), Earl (My name is Earl) and Mirek Topolanek (former cz prime minister) and he got all of those correct. And he got Lady Aribeth de Tylmarande (Neverwinter Nights) on second try after guessing some chick from Dragon quest 5. Well, I told him she is blond, which probably wasn't correct. Really nice.
