1. Only yes/no questions may be asked.
2. If the answer is unclear, question master must clarify why.
3. One guess per person does not count against the total, but additional guesses by the same person do. After all 20 questions are up, three total guesses are allowed.
4. Please choose people from history, or movie/TV/literary/video game chars/etc. characters that, if you were to throw a dart out the window, at least 50% of people hit would know this character.
5. Whomever guesses correctly takes over from the previous question master. If they do not want to do it, they may choose who to pass the duty onto or just give it to the first volunteer.
6. If the question master remains undefeated three times in a row, on the third time they must either pass it to a person of their choice, or the first volunteer takes over.

Was he a vegetarian?
I don't see any source that says he was or was not, but I'm afraid I do have to count this is a question because my answer rules out people who were notably vegetarian and those who were notably non-vegetarian. And I'll go further and say that he is not notably for his diet in any regard.

ANSWERS / KNOWN FACTS:
1. Male.
2. Native English speaker.
3/4. Died since 1950.
5. Not notable for any particular diet.

INCORRECT GUESSES:
Hulk Hogan (Jamiet99uk).

Clarification request.

Sorry for displaying a feature of a language nazi, but I'd like to make sure that 'died since 1950' means 'died after 1950'?

My question was "before 1950," so I'm assuming 1950 and later.
