Amazing. The best semantic web application I've seen.

In two instances, Example 1 & 2 True Knowledge understood my question but didn't know the answer. Other times, the results were a bit off. Some like Example 5, (I knew True Knowledge would get this one before I asked) came back as expected. I didn't expect an answer for Example 6, but the query returned a normal google like web search gave me relevant links.

Take a look at some sample questions and responses;

Example 1
Q:Where can I get a cheeseburger in malvern, pa

A:Sorry I don't know the answer to that question.

Where probably or possibly sells Cheeseburger, a hamburger,
accompanied with cheeses in Malvern, the place in Chester County, Pennsylvania, USA?

Example 2
Q: what is the difference between a turtle and a tortoise?

A:If there are any answers, I couldn't find any.

who or what is the difference between the the two scalar quantities the group of objects: an unspecified member of turtle (any of various aquatic and land reptiles having a bony shell and flipper-like limbs for swimming)
and an unspecified member of tortoise (the land-dwelling reptile with a shell)?

Example 3
Q:How many democrats in pa senate?

A:Sorry, I could not find the answer to that question because it contains an unfamiliar term "pa senate". Please help us by providing more information about what "pa senate" refers to. Is it ... a sports team (a team of people united for the purpose of playing a team sport)
a geographical area
a biological object

Example 4
Q:How many democrats in office in us?

A:Sorry, I don't understand that question.
