12 questions to get 'platypus'

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

Obviously something wrong with the code. I've forwarded your complaint to the site creator [Wink]

That's appalling, and most unlady-like. Your post has warped my fragile little mind.

At least she didn't mention which orfice the gas was exiting, because you and I both know about the *ahem* 'double barrel' effect.

I remember this *ages* ago. I was a little disappointed - in 18 questions, it got close, but no cigar. I was holding a cup of tea in my hand, so that was what I decided to go for. It guessed "iced tea." Thanks, but no thanks - it was not *iced.* I was trying to indicate "cup of hot tea." I did not want to go with the descriptives for dried tea, as that would not be true to what I was thinking of...

Rock on: It guessed "CPU" in 18Q [Big Grin] .

Uh....

Uncommon Knowledge about an alarm clock

Would you find it in an office? I say No.
Does it have a horn? I say Probably.
Is it tall? I say Probably.
Do you use it at work? I say No.
Is it considered intelligent? I say Probably.
Does it taste good with butter? I say Probably.
Can it be used in remote areas? I say No.
Is it something you bring along? I say No.
Is some part of it made of glass? I say Yes.
Is it usually sliced or carved? I say Yes.
Does it have lots of seeds? I say Yes.
Would you eat its fruit? I say Yes.
<== WHAT THE FSCK?!
Is it orange colored? I say Probably.
Does it sweat? I say Yes.

Is it smooth? I say No.
Does a hockey player use it? I say Probably.

P.S. Did anyone else put in a silly query or two? I certainly entered one amusing entry, and got an answer within 18-19 questions that was pretty acceptable - quite impressive!

You were thinking of a word.
Does it use numbers? You said Sometimes, I say No.
Can you put something into it? You said Probably, I say No.
Is it smaller than a loaf of bread? You said Irrelevant, I say Yes.
Can you buy it at a store? You said Yes, I say No.
Can it be painted? You said No, I say Yes.
Would you give it as a gift? You said Sometimes, I say No.
Is it manufactured? You said Sometimes, I say No.
Is it smaller than a golf ball? You said Irrelevant, I say Yes.

It took 30 guesses, with premature endgame guesses: "an operating system" (no), "information" (close), "music" (no).

I stumped it with "a hanging chad", too!

And the little prude gave up on "a breast", refusing or unable to get closer than "a gland", "breast milk", and finally "something to do with sex".
