Given that he said it was someone where you could argue whether they're a celebrity, I thought you were thinking it was Randall.

No.

And that's game. Next time, try things that are almost certain to get a "yes" answer, that way each "no" will give you some very helpful information.

Just for fun, I'll give each player one guess, but I would be very surprised if anyone guesses correctly at this point.

Yes. Which is why I wasn't sure how to answer the celebrity question: in his own universe, he would probably count as a celebrity, but I felt a "yes" would lead people to assume it was a real person.

As would answering "yes" to "Are they alive?" and "yes" to "Are they human?" These might be conditional yesses? That's answering yes and no for you.

By that logic I should answer "no" to just about everything until it had been established that the being in question was fictional. Plus in this case it could be argued that even within the fictional universe he wasn't a celebrity - he certainly wasn't for most of the series.

No, I didn't see it, and no, it's not The Doctor.

The answer is Neville Longbottom.

A quick Google maps measurement puts Australia's length around 4 megameters1, slightly over the Moon's 3.5 Mm diameter. That is to say, yes (although the Moon has twice almost five times the surface area). But I don't see how this helps you find out what I'm thinking about... :mrgreen:
