I’ll take “country” liberally and say yes.
Quite unfortunate, since this answer remains unclear.

Re: Twenty Questions, Game 90

From Suriname, the Lesser Antilles, Malta, Cyprus, Africa or any part of Asia except for China, Japan, Siam/Thailand and Persia/Iran?

Do you inhabit the same space-time continuum as this individual?

Re: Twenty Questions - Game 89

I’ve already guessed but it could be Nicki Minaj. Go for it! We're out of free guesses anyway, so it doesn't matter if you guess again. I couldn't find any information on the TV series Hollymation to check where it debuted, but she seems to fit everything else. Well, the blonde thing is interesting...

Northern Ireland maybe....
There was a 'reason' that we ruled out Scotland. I do not recall what it was.
No reason. A user just checked and couldn't find anybody who fit the bill.

Re: Twenty Questions - Game 89

Are we even on the right track? I think this is the point where the gamemaster typically starts dropping clues to help kick the ball across the finish line. I just hate to deny someone that hero moment when they put it all together without a big clue. Okay, hint #3: You have yet to guess a person i...

Re: Twenty Questions - Game 89

Looks to me like she fits, FYI. Admittedly it's not as clear-cut as the other six blatantly criterion-slamming guesses (though we're up to seven again with Avril Lavigne redux), but I laid out my concerns here to crickets: https://webdiplomacy.net/contrib/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?p=325731&sid=63b37f29a...

Re: Twenty Questions - Game 89

Guys, seven of the last eight guesses, (Katie McGrath, Kerry Condon, Salóme Gunnarsdóttir, Adele, Avril Lavigne, Joss Stone and Charlotte Church) were wasted on people that don't fit the criteria. I get that we're just playing a game, but come on now . . . Which criterion does Charlotte Church not ...

17. Not on these lists: Wikipedia Actresses from the United Kingdom born in the 1980s; Wikipedia Actresses from Canada born in the 1980s
Could you be more of a lawyer and stop confusing Wikipedia with the Wikimedia Commons?

Re: Twenty Questions - Game 89

I can only find 3 familiar sounding singer/actresses from that list that were born in the 80s that could be considered blonde. Ellie Goulding, although acting is VERY limited Kelly Osbourne Joss Stone I've had my free guess, but Ms Stone looks like a reasonble option if anyone wants to use theirs. ...

Re: Twenty Questions - Game 89

Found a few candidatea from Wales: Charlotte Church Duffy Less likely: Katherine Jenkins I will use my free guess and say Duffy. I can't find a reason to eliminate Katherine Jenkins, but Charlotte Church's voice appeared in "The Sync Report", which appears to have debuted on Apple TV? I'm not sure ...

I look foward to you rhyming Salóme Gunnarsdóttir...
Surprisingly, it's not too hard!

It just sounds like 'daughter', and means just that in Icelandic.

Re: Twenty Questions - Game 89

@JECE, are you asking me to go to the link and see if the person is still not there, in the event there have been changes? Do you have any reason to think that the lists have changed? It feels kind of like a new question to keep reviewing a changing list, but I don’t see why any of these lists woul...
