This is too much fun and computers are really smart.

Play 20 Questions with the computer.

It's cool to see its critique of your answers to its questions.

* I've purposefully not granted the computer a gender...only "it".


This was fun! I did stump the AI, though, when it guessed "turnip" in 25 questions... More interestingly was the AI's trivia (aka uncommon knowledge) on turnips...

Uncommon Knowledge about a turnip
Is it heavier than a pound of butter? I say Probably.
Do you eat it with Thanksgiving dinner? I say Probably.
Does it get wet? I say Doubtful.
Is it pleasurable? I say No.
Can you use it to hit something? I say Yes.
Does it have big leaves? I say Yes.
Does it get shorter from using it? I say No.
Can you use it with your friends? I say Yes.
Is it an absolute state? I say Probably.
Can it be dried? I say No.
Is it a vegetarian? I say Yes.
Can you use it 24 hours a day? I say Probably.
Does it roll? I say Yes.
Does it have tough skin? I say Yes.
Can you add it to a salad? I say No.
Is it made of metal? I say No.

Now... if we link the pleasurable part to the friends part and ultimately to the 24 hours a day part... wooohoo!

I trumped it as well with a skateboard.

Not sooo smart. Tahini, a clock tower, a lock washer, a nipple ring, a chin-up bar, a fossil...didn't get any of them.
