I’m a professional software engineer with a B.S. in Computer Science who loves building easy-to-use, functional software that’s backed by elegant, maintainable code. When not coding, I often dabble in photography. I have a passion for technology, cinema, cars, great design, tea, and “useless” facts.

The question of whether a computer can think is no more interesting than the question of whether a submarine can swim. — E. W. Dijkstra

For instance, isn‘t Sue telling the subject to guess what she did, rather than asking?

comment Should “guess what” be a question or command?
I have doubts that “guess what” is ever a question at all. If I expand “guess what” to “guess what I'm doing”, that wouldn't be a question, would it? Nor would simply “guess”. So why should a sentence of equivalent meaning be a question? Or should “guess what” be expanded to “Can you guess what I'm doing now?”. That seems like a big interpretive leap.

Thanks for the clarification there, it's just something that's always confused me and I always thought I was doing it correctly but never quite sure.
