20q.net

ever wanted some artificial intelegence (one that can spell) guess what your thinking? then head on over to 20q.net and give it a go.

maybe its because the game is sensored, but it was unable to get what I was thinking of (a booger) after 30 questions, so I 'won'. heres the censorship info:

The Game is censored. The moderators assign a censorship level to assign to each new object and question. The Game will not choose questions or guessing objects above the player's current censorship level.

the only thing about that experience was the word 'intelegence'.
it asked me a bunch of seemingly random questions and had equally confusing guesses only to allow me to win with 'a snowman'.
hmmm.
maybe it needs some work.

i think it is important to 'think' like a normal stupid american... after all it has been taught by morons so if you answer a question correctly just think about how many people may have played this game and not known the truth, so I don't fault this poor computer for trying to learn. the moral is that smart nerdy people need to play MORE to teach it reality!
