its like 'oh he's english? it must be one of the guys from top gear', but then it goes all 'is your character GOTH?'
It guessed Mr. Gumby, Uncle Albert and Ted Maul. I'm very unimpressed.
Its trick is that we the contributors create its database - and we're very good at covering all bases. I do believe I'm on there. May have a look, actually.
Find me, folks.
second time round
It guessed Sakis Rouvas. lol.
IN YOUR FACE. It got pretty close when it asked me if my character had been in Scarface at 19 questions, then asked me if my character was English and lost THE GAME.
This is lame.
Sandi Toksvig: Pixie Geldof @ 20, got it @ 26
Stephen Fry: Got @ 12
Duncan Bannatyne: Got @ 20
Katie Puckrik: Lisa Lampanelli (Comedian) @ 20, Rachel Zoe @ 30, DEFEATED @ 40
DEFEATED @ 40
Got it @ 40
It asked pretty much the same questions for both, and finally plumped for some bint called "nuttymadam3575 (Youtube lardass)" for both
Through regular era/job/gender/location questions.
Then Q20: Is your character a homosexual?
I was like 'WOAH OMG this thing is crazy'.
Though to be fair, homosexual French writers who lived in the 19th and 20th centuries are hardly limited....
But then it came up with Proust :-(
It should have asked the homosexual question again.
guessed it in about 17 questions. I freaked out when it said "Does your character have orange hair", I thought "fuck, he's got it."`
couldn't guess "Stanley Moon" from the original Bedazzled, take THAT scarily pyschic 20 questions thing.
40 questions in, it's guessed the Queen, Camilla, and weirdly, Vera Lynn.
Though it has suggested Disraeli and Sir Robert Peel, "MP for Tamworth".
His first guess was Pierre Bouvier (Simple Plan)
It guess third time: Dave Ulliott "The Devilfish"
freaked me out a bit
who are in bands with more than 5 people that have boys and girls in.
Still - pretty weird how quick it came up with him.
It got Darcey Bussell from married, has kids, not blonde, not actor, not singer, not sportstar, not posed in a bikini etc.
It can get Matthew C Perry!? I refuse to accept this.
the first time i didnt think it had to be someone from the cinema so it failed me miserably on obscure figures from novels
dont correct t though, thats how it gains its power.
instead of just at the bottom of the thread?
It's cos DiS is a bit shit at the moment. Click "rebuild" at the bottom and post again if you can be arsed.
there was a moment when it seemed completely far away, and then came up with,
"is your character in cinema?" and that almost swung it.
It guessed Nibbler first.
with the vaguest possible questions. "Does he drive a car", "is he from america", "does he use guns", "does he wear hats"
gonna go for frank gallagher now.
Guessed PJ as Katy Perry @ 20, Imogen Heap @ 30, got it by 40.
Alison Goldfrapp: Got in 20
'32 others have done this one' :D
Is it linked to google or something? Ruddy clever stuff.
from Hey Arnold in 14/15
and Charles Bronson from ''Bronson''
How is it doing this?
Couldn't get Phil from Mike Leigh's ''All Or Nothing''
with Gareth Campesinos!
second to last question being "does your character have small breasts?"
I think i'm addicted.
suggested Andy Zaltzman ?!???
I got Fatale. Who?
all of these took 17-20 questions:
tim from spaced
Charles Van Commenee, the head coach of GB athletics.
the git who is tearing apart culture in this country.
the genie said ryan shawcross, luke chadwick and dick & dom. take that genie!
after a mis-step thinking it was Linda Blair
With Officer Crabtree from Allo Allo!
Tore Andre Flo.
Only 16 to get Willy from 'Free Willy' though
20 questions to get Jonny Howson. MENTAL.
But only after guessing Denholm Reynholm midway through. Still impressive.
I didn't think that would be too difficult. The questions were all heading the right direction and then it amazingly came up with Simon Quinlack, King Of Hobbies.
It guessed sadpunk after two questions!!!
In your face stupid game :)
But it got Super Ally in about 15
After 20 on Morley it guessed Ken Dodd.
It did have for King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia:
Has your character been a cheerleader? Answer expected: Yes
He asked me if she worked for a tv station and I was like LOL NO SHES NO LIZ LEMON LOL
but got Shane "Banjo Playing Asshole" Vendrell in 20.
IT IT IT
im liking him more and more
it got Murray from Flight of the Conchords well easily.
First time it's been right on first attempt.
with Alexei from Johnny Foreigner. So far it's guessed Matt Bellamy, then the guy from the Fratellis, then the guy from the Wombats. Still going!
but he was on the list it gave me at the end.
totally defeated with Joanna Trollope.
must have tried a different angle this time and gotten lost
"Is your character white?"
"Is your character black?"
"Is it James Blake?"
He means the tennis player, not that other James Blake who is stealing his identity.
I am content
But got my guinea pig in 26.
And Clippy from Microsoft Office in 15
I got a bit too excited when I explained this to my friends and they all laughed at me
Squirrel Nutkin in 40 questions and Howards Schultz in 30, it's too good!
Was going for Leroy Lita and got Darren Bent :D
I am in awe.
now i'm impressed
