Open the pod-bay door please HAL.

20q.net, a computerized, artificial intelligence system, plays 20 Questions with you, and is remarkably good at it.

When I played, after 20 questions it incorrectly guessed I was thinking of a "Vase", but after 5 more questions it correctly guessed "Coffee Mug". And by the way, I WAS thinking specifically COFFEE MUG, not just MUG.

[Thanks Joho]
