    Took him 40 questions to get Ken Starr... he guessed Neil Armstrong and Alan Greenspan first. If you give him enough questions, he can probably guess anyone.

    Took him a while to get Billy the Kid as well (relatively speaking)...about 22 questions. Heck, he got "Noah" in well under that!

    Couldn't get Drew Pearson. Didn't go on to see how many it took though. He guessed Calvin Johnson first.

    You guys are thinking of too big and obvious people, I had to go pretty far into anime characters before I stumped it with Ion Fortuna of Trinity Blood.

    Well, it's probably good to actually use famous characters that more than a couple dozen people have heard of.

    It guessed right several non-main characters, it has a very high threshold. I made mistakes in describing a couple and had to re-do it and it got them right. I would think any well-known character guessed wrong was human error.

    I just did Wade and one of the questions was "Does he have a nickname".

    Made me giggle.

    He got me with Patton.

    Took it three guesses and 38 questions to get Jean Lafitte. It picked Robespierre and I forget who else first.

    Akinator (Ak.) is pretty impressive, I must say. I decided to try out some of my favorite musical artists, and these are all pretty obscure to most folks.



    Joshua Bell: Ak. guessed Kenny G at 20, finally got Bell correct at 33

    Kate Bush: Ak. got her right on #20

    Toyah Willcox: Ak. guessed wrong at 21 with Petula Clark. Got Toyah (to my utter amazement) correct at #30

    Kitaro: Ak. guess wrong at 20 with Yo-Yo Ma. Got Kitaro (again to my astonishment) at #30
