Random Aircraft Quiz Bot WIP


Ha ha :sweat_smile:

I wondered how he got three identical ones


I forgot we had this. @chipwich asking for an aircraft reminded me.

To use, reply with the text (sorry for picture example Dark Theme people)…:


…in a message and it’ll try to make a quiz. It’s pretty dumb and uses wikipedia as the random choice, but the price is good. YMMV.

Answer below (no peeking!)[Dayton-Wright XPS-1](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dayton-Wright%20XPS-1)


My work mandated IE6 has disqualified me from this by refusing to understand HTML. So while I won’t guess the name, I will authoritatively state whatever it might be, it’s uggo af.


Didn’t I post the XPS-1 in an earlier “guess the airplane” thread?


Yeah, ‘random’ is a generous misnomer for the bot really - it only takes the first page or so from wikipedia (so is limited to early on in the alphabet) and even then it only uses ones with pictures. Dupes galore!


Haha that XPS-1 is hilarious! Looks like something out of a children’s book.


You think that’s bad, check this one out:


“ … the pilot had no forward view, but was provided with flexible celluloid side windows …”

That’s…one way of doing it.

I am sad now.


I can’t see the photo on mobile… actually I don’t know if can see it on desktop either… I’ll get back to you lol


…well now I’m not sleeping the rest of this week. I’d forgotten how many nightmares that scene gave me as a kid.


For a PG rated film, they flew a lot of crap under the radar.


Fun fact: Spaceballs was rated PG when it came out.
