    That's already been established:

    You are a female, that is not an actress, scientist, politician, newscaster, or singer, that was once on TV daily, but no longer, over the age of 50, "committed to the truth", and has a last name that starts with b, c, d, f, g, h, j, k, l, or m.
    Everything I need to know I learned through Googling.

    #32 Are you Marcia Clark?

    (who I don't think is famous enough, but is the most famous non-politician non-newsperson, non-actress who spent a lot of time on TV)

    Who's Marcia Clark? I don't claim I know everybody who is internationally famous, but I follow a lot of foreign news etc and I have not the slightest idea that I ever heard or read that name before.

    She was the lead prosecutor in the O.J. Simpson murder trial, which occured in ~ 1992, give or take a year. I'm sure that the trial itself was publicized worldwide, but certainly her name, and particularly her regular appearances on TV (both as a news "item", and later as an analyst for other trials) is probably uniquely American.

    In other threads, whoever correctly guessed the contest was the one who continued it. So if everyone is game, I can continue.

    Pghnative. Good job on guessing Marcia. I believe that you are correct in going next. Seems like a fun game to me.

    I'll bump again since I've been away for a short while. I'm internationally famous*, and I'm alive. We'll generally follow Staiduk's rules, except I see no need to number the questions --- I'll answer them in the order they're posted.

    *famous at least to a subset of the world's population. I'm confident that this includes most of the people on this board.
