I need your help. I think my computer is gaining sentience. I went to a play, but when I got back this file was saved on my desktop:
#!/usr/bin/env python3 # -*- coding: latin8 -*- i = input("Please enter a character: ") print((i == "Ä" or i == ";"))
(note: The original riddle had a colon

;. This was my fault, the correct character is a semicolon)
It was saved as
question.py. I know I didn't write this! I think my computer is trying to ask me a question, but I can't tell what the question is.
What question is my computer asking me?

The question is a famous line
