    It gets midget porn stars the first time but not blond ones.

    It got Seananners pretty quickly. I beat it with the king of Qin from Hero, although it did get Jet Li's character.
    The king of Qin in that movie is Qin Shi Huang, whom Akinator guessed for me (on his second try).

    I think he was confused by my answering that he had appeared in several popular video games--which he has (Civilization series; perhaps others).

    Just for shits and giggles I went with Jim Kirk. Akinator narrowed it down to "starship captains from Star Trek who are white and not bald" in 7 or 8 questions and then proceeded to ask all kinds of weird shit, such as "is your character a manga artist? for the remaining 12 questions. In the end it guessed Kirk, of course.

    Strange.

    I'm pretty sure it'll always ask at least 20 questions, so if it's sure it starts asking random shit where it doesn't know the answer for that character, to build up the database.

    EDIT: er, nevermind, it just got the kid from Limbo in 15 questions.

    Yeah, this was my interpretation, too. Either it's throwing out very strange corner-case answers (possibly entered by trolls) or it's just looking for free information once it knows what I'm guessing.

    I don't think it always ask 20 questions. But you can almost see the moment it guesses and starts to toy with you.

    "Does she lead a group?" "Does she fight for love and justice?" (Sailor Moon)
    "Does she kill people?" "Is she isreali?" NCIS character

    I think it's just randomly trying to gather more data (or verify existing data) on the person since it think's it knows who it is. Hit 'last games' real fast after you're done and click on their name in the list. You can see which questions were 'new' for that character if the expected response was "?"

    I'm consistently impressed at how I can tread the boundaries of what I think it ought to be able to guess and still I end up staring at the correct answer a few seconds later.

    I mean, I could pick someone really obscure and go with it--but that wouldn't be much fun.

    I just played Norman Borlaug and it took two tries--first guess was Carl Sagan.

    The robot version of me from Cybertron:

    First guess: Norm Spellman (from Avatar)
    Second guess: Trollface (internet)
    Third guess: Your own character (Your Original Character)

    Then it said my ideal wife is Ashley Alexandra Dupré, the prostitute who exposed Eliot Spitzer.

    Ok, whatever, fine, fuck you. I'm done with this.

    Charles de Gaulle in 15 questions. Wow.

    Weird, it said that the expected answer to "Has your character killed humans?" is "no, when I answered "probably."

    I mean he was a WWI vet that had been a POW and wounded more than once, I think an outright "no" is a stretch.

    Guessed correctly in twenty questions: Barton Fink, Dream of the Endless, Max Cohen (Pi), Wayne Coyne

    It guessed incorrectly when I was thinking of Jan Švankmajer and Salvador Dali, in both cases giving me people I've never heard of.
    The one for Dali must have been relatively close, though, as he could be chosen from the list.
    I chose to show forgiveness and think of Wayne twice. The first time it incorrectly guessed Justin Timberlake, because I was asked if Wayne Coyne has "ever been in movies" and answered "yes" for Christmas on Mars. After that, acting became the main focus and the previous questions concerning being a musician were mostly forgotten.
