It can't seem to get Horace Grant either, so far it's 1 of 5 for me, and that's only because I gave it a really easy one.

That of course would also assume that the database knew that Patrick Kane was a Blackhawk, and that the Blackhawks are a Chicago team.

All that said, I believe my previous theory was the correct one. Occam's razor and all that.
ahhh i understand now. thats seems a bit far-fetched seeing as how many people try to trick the program by guessing out of the box.
i too will agree that your first suggestion is probably correct though.

Interestingly the akinator just asked me this question:

Does your character live in your country?

that's EXTREMELY easy to do.... go to whatismyipaddress.com it gives you your ipaddress..... no one blocks anymore.

Proxies, and phone cards are what throws them off the most if you ever wanna fuck with 'em...


I'm not impressed with that site btw???

I chose elisha cuthbert.... started off fine and I thought it almost had it...but then it went down a tangent and started guessing if it was a lizard, or started referencing her as a 'he'. etc etc... looks like it nailed you guys, but not mine? booo.


I gave it another shot.... 'is your character a girl' --> 'yes'.
followup question.... 'is your character said to be a hot guy' ---> wtf?

I would only expect this to get more and more accurate, as people are typing in the answer to characters it doesn't get.
