    I defeated it! BwhHAHAHAHA

    It then gave me a list of names and asked if the person was on the list. Then it wanted to ask me questions about the person I wanted it to guess.

    I declined.

    OK, it WAS thinking, but I decided to try again, because it seemed stuck. First guess could NOT hae been more wrong! **********WHOA**********! I can NOT believe it!

    I was thnking of someone that almost everyone would have guessed WRONG! THIS site asked the wrong questions, and asked some mutiple times, and guessed RIGHT! It WAS the SECOND guess though! The ANSWER? Steve Wozniak! The first answer? RICHARD SIMMONS! SORRY STEVE! 8-(

      Sounds like my GPS when I continually ignore its suggestions to turn where it says. After 5 or 6 times it says "FINE....find your own d$#n way" and shuts off.

    OK, I tried AGAIN! A minor title character on the disney channel. He got her right, but OBVIOUSLY knew the disney channel. THIRD try through. First guess FAILED! Second guess SAME failure! Third guess different failure and illogical, based on questions! It gave up. I'll try the SAME again! WHOA, it got her!

    It guessed both of mine. I tried Tom Hanks - too obvious, and then Tom, the cat from Tom & Jerry - surprised that it guessed that one.

      Yeah, I tried steve wozniak, china mcclain, and sierra mccormick.

      AGAIN, with steve wozniak, it got it on the second guess on the ssecond round. The first guess was richard simmons. MAN was it off!!!!!

      I believe china mcclain, it got on the first try.

      Sierra mccormick was like the fourth guess on the second round. I DID tell it sierra played olive, and that was what I was looking for before the second round.

      With china and sierra, it instantly guessed that maybe it should look at wizards of waverly place, and then seemed to think maybe my babysitter is a vampire. But it guessed right in the end.

        LOL I think so. So far it has accurately guessed - Tom - from Tom & Jerry, Farah Faucet, Bob the Tomato, Penelope Pitstop, condoleezza rice, The Lone Ranger, Patrick Star, and Captain Crunch.

        Speaking of intervention, that gives me one more name to try - if he guesses this time then I'll give up.

    Wow, it got Otis Campbell (the drunk on Andy Griffith) and Beaky Buzzard. Stumped it with Little Lulu. Had to "introduce" the character to it so it probably won't be stumped on that one again.

    Sorry Gary.

    Edit: Stumped it on Lea Thompson too, but to be fair, I didn't know the answer to about 25% of the questions it asked. Okay, time to check out the NFL cuts. Today is cut down day.

      It didn`t get Nikolai Tesla the prominent scientist....but I answered some questions without really knowing the answer, E.G. Does he have a funny hairstyle? I answered no without really knowing. Plus a few others.....so the answers have to be accurate otherwise the result will be wrong.

    I think maybe it's better if the character is fictional rather than a real person as it narrows it down better. I thought of John Snow of Game of Thrones and it almost guessed it as it said Benjen Stark, his uncle. Then I said no and it asked 3 more questions and got it. I can see how it got it close but not quite as both are basically the same on the questions it asked. If it would've just continued it would've gotten it right the first time. Still pretty good. Basically it's a database that eliminates like in 20 questions. I bookmarked it for quick entertainment for later.

    I have played with this thing way, way too much. I was impressed overall.

    Of course it got the "biggies" like Clint Eastwood, Robert Frost, Stephen Hawking, Albert Einstein, Madonna, Maggie Simpson...and quickly too.

    But it also got e.e. cummings, Marie Curie, Helena Blavatsky, Mary Stuart (Mary Queen of Scots), Kina Grannis, David Choi, Black Francis/Frank Black and Missy Higgins. Some of these took more than 1 guess, but it still got it in the end. It is neat watching the questions "hone in", for example, for Kina, it went from "singer" to "lot of youtube videos" to "asian" to "curly hair" to "Kina!"

    I think it is a really neat little game. It is more fun playing with more famous people because it can hone in on those faster.

    pretty cool.

    It correctly guessed Russell crow, Courtney Cox, Bridgette Fonda, and Eddie Murphy.

    With Courtney Cox, I couldn't even remember her name. I just thought of the hot chick on "friends". I should go try a harder one.

    How the heck did it correctly guess jughead correctly? I didn't even know the answers to most of the questions!
