Remember that it's a most-like engine, which means both that one
obviously-right answer won't guarantee the right result if too many
other answers are wrong and that one obviously-wrong answer won't
guarantee a wrong result if enough other answers are right.

On my aforementioned quest to find the DWJ character most like a small
pebble, the test came up with Fifi even though I selected "completely
inhuman", answered in the negative to several questions about making
long journeys, and otherwise indicated in several ways that even Fifi
isn't that much like a small pebble really.

And now I'm trying to remember whether Roddy and Grundo were actually
related - because if not, Roddy might be another one with both n and
n+1 siblings.
