Rules

1. Only yes/no objective 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 regardless of whether guesser has previously guessed.
4. Please choose persons real or fictional that are not horribly obscure. No repeats.
5. Whoever 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.

Good luck!

SPECIAL BALKI RULE: I may ask you to clarify your question or make it more objective. Do not assume that the clarification matters. I want clear questions and clear lines about who is excluded and not excluded with each answer, and my request that you clarify a question says nothing other than that.

Is it, or was it, a real human being? By "human being" I mean a member of the species Homo sapiens, coined by Carl Linnaeus in his 1735 work Systema Naturae. I note that the word "human" can refer to all members of the Homo genus, although in common usage it generally just refers to Homo sapiens, the only extant species - and to be clear, that is the usage that I am employing in asking the particular question that is the subject of this post.

Was this real human, who exists as of today, born before the date commonly understood to be January 1 of the year commonly known as 1980?

So real living female.
What a waste of keystrokes.... :)

Born in a country where English is the most commonly spoken language, including backwards variations like the English spoken in the United States?

Is the age of this real living human woman (measured in years*) 60 or over, as of the timestamp of this post?

* Where "years" refers generally to the orbital period of the planet Earth, in the context commonly used by the majority of English-speaking humans on that aforementioned planet to measure how long they have been alive, using the Gregorian calendar, for the purpose of counting birthdays, etcetera.
