Yeah...that's the telepathy thing. It's short range, though, hand it to a buddy and have him hold it. Then leave and call him on a land line. DO NOT tell him what your answer it, just feed him the correct answers.

It never gets it right when you do that.l

My head is dense enough that I can stump those things about 60% of hte time.

......it's that, or I think of things that would not commonly be in a database somewhere.

When you think about it, 20 binary data points gives over one million possible answers. When you have a tri-state condition (the animal/mineral/vegetable characteristic) and 19 data points, there are over 4 million possible answers.

Most people will think about an item on the one-million list.

I had to clue her in a little on playing, because she kept trying to mislead the thing so I wouldn't be able to guess.
