Default Need to Waste Some Time?

Hey a co-worker introduced me to this online program today. Its pretty uncanny, though that is probably due to the sheer ammount of entries it has received in the last few years. Basically you answer some questions and the program tries to guess what character you are thinking of. I stumped it on Squats. I guess the Tyranid killed them so bad that they were never imputed into this program.

Anyways if you are bored, try it out.

http://us.akinator.com/#

Here is the tally for the ones he didn't get:


Wargamer
Bjorn the Fell-Handed

Miranda Lawson
Shrike

Restayvien
Rose McGowan from 'Devil in the Flesh' aka 'Dearly Devoted'

I Am Legend
Gort? (Did he get it eventually? You have to make him give up...)
Aun'Va
Cliff Starkey from Blackball
Turn Signals On A Landraider.
He didn't get Kren. Or Frep, or Jack. (what are these from?)
Al Raheim
Adrian Cronaure from Good Morning Vientnam.

The Laughing Man
Eldrad Ulthran
Yama Dharma from Lord of Light

Circus
Faun (did you make him give up? It looked like he was going down the hellboy route which is probably because of the creature designer...)
Cook from Spun
Red Dwarf from "Holoship."
Braca from Farscape

Unholy Harbinger
deciever

Lord Scythican
Pacman
Heather Carolin
The Ohm from Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind
Duane Bradley's little brother from Basket Case
Raw Head Rex
Fatty McFatback from What's Eating Gilbert Grape?
Martha Dumptruck from Heathers

Skeith
Yoko Kanno

Tiwaz
Robert Heinlein
Dr. Richard Ames/Colonel Colin Campbell from The Cat Who Walks Through Walls

Well, it guessed Zhuge Liang. Guess that was a little too easy.

Hardball time! >

Okay, so it knows a bit of Anime... it guessed Renamon. :P


Okay, this time I have pitched him Bjorn the Fell-Handed. His first guess was Sanguinius, so he is at least in the right setting / general army. :P

Shrike doesn't work either, pretty cool though.

Didnt get Al Raheim or Farsight unitl the 3rd try again, where it started asking really obvious questions like does your character fight with a sword, wear red armour etc...

Haha it got the Lord of Darkness from Legend is about 15 questions. ;D (In my Avatar)

It got Alice from Resident Evil (the films) in even less...this thing's pretty damn good. I'll try somehting harder...

Holy klkn 0.0 It got Cassie from Skins, even though there are loads of characters it could have been.

That's insane! It got the kid from flight of the navigator. I couldn't even remember his name or the name of the film. :P I can't think of many characters more obscure than that...

Aha finally tricked it. I was thinking of Rose McGowan in one of her films and it thought I meant Lindsay Lohan's character from Mean Girls, or the one from Carrie. :P

I want to start a poll to see how many of us can beat this guy - it guessed Odysseus correctly. :P
