Thanks for the link, I only scored 33%, but if we will make the Turing test the benchmark, does it mean that I pass? Well, Faulkner is a hard read for me anyways or did I just lose my 50-50 mojo? Will I score higher if the author is Grass, Kafka or Pynchon?

Poets don't know much about poetry either, but that's just me, a long time wannabe.

I don't know how is your percentage of correct answers distributed between Faulkner and Machine translation. If equally then you believed that computer translation is Faulkner in 67% of the cases and it certainly passes the Turing test.

It also looks that monkeys pass the Turing test for abstract artists.

I did not notice any similarities between Kafka and machine translation. Don't know about the two others.

Wow. Again, thanks for the replies and the links. Consider an appropriate pen name? I'm past that, I'm moving on, I'd rather check out your thread.
