Akinator, the Web Genius
« on: February 04, 2012, 12:40:50 pm »
I can't believe I just found this site.  :o
Although I've pretty much figured out the theory behind it, it never ceases to amaze me how often it guesses my character.
See for yourself.

Crap, it figured out my character way too easily :P

It took my second character a few more tries before it got it.

(1. Taokaka 2. Torakaka) XD

I was surprised to see, "Is your character from the BlazBlue series?"

Spoiler For IMPORTANT NEWS!:
Late last night, Quebec was invaded by a group calling themselves, "Omnimaga". Not much is known about these mysterious people except that they all carried calculators of some kind and they all seemed to converge on one house in particular. Experts estimate that the combined power of their fabled calculators is greater than all the worlds super computers put together. The group seems to be holding out in the home of a certain DJ_O, who the Omnimagians claim to be their founder. Such power has put the world at a standstill with everyone waiting to see what the Omnimagians will do...

Wait... This just in, the Omnimagians have sent the UN a list of demands that must be met or else the world will be "submitted to the wrath of Netham45's Lobster Army". Such demands include >9001 crates of peanuts, sacrificial blue lobsters, and a wide assortment of cherry flavored items. With such computing power stored in the hands of such people, we can only hope these demands are met.

In the wake of these events, we can only ask, Why? Why do these people make these demands, what caused them to gather, and what are their future plans...

Hm, he didn't even found Amir Khadir (politician). He found Jean Charest (Prime minister of Québec) and Gilles Duceppe (former politician) though. Guess lesser known politicians are hard to find, they are all nearly the same, unless you're prime minister of Canada, Québec or Ontario.

Uncanny... Doesn't know Jon from Garfield though.

EDIT: It asked a bunch of random questions that weren't specific at all, and somehow got Marvin the robot O.O

I thought of the Monitor of Installation 05 from Halo 2... It thought Metagross... After it asked, "Is your character related to the Halo series?" <Yes> :/

The next guess was spot on though. :D

Oh my gosh :O I thought of Tim Lambesis of As I Lay dying first, and it got it on the second guess. Then Winston McCall of Parkway Drive on the first! Then he got Machiavelli on the second try... But I got him with Robert Owen ;) (the Scottish socialist reformer)

Um... It changed the page for me to input the person before I could change the screen, but here's the confirmation thing of me adding the person.
