Name Analysis

:arrow: Toni Collette (cant be - No names starting with "C" on round 2)
:arrow: Tori Spelling (cant be - No names starting with "S" on round 2)
:arrow: Shane Warne (cant be - No names starting with "W" on round 2)

So, with 100% certainty, our hidden personality is one of the following:

:arrow: Marilyn Monroe (Maybe)
:arrow: Jennifer Aniston (Maybe)
:arrow: Michael Jackson (Maybe)
:arrow: Samantha Morton (Maybe)

Now, Samantha Morton is British! This would only be possible if STOMPY got the first round Secret message... which I think is very unlikely.

And, the other 3 personalities are americans... hmmm... more on this later.

(Turn 2) "I am of the same sex as you, and my surname starts with the same letter as the first letter of your first name".

annawid: Monica Lewinsky (Turn 2) - Marilyn Monroe (Turn 3)
dougp: John Howard (Turn 2) - Shane Warne (Turn 3)
Fernando: Nicole Kidman (Turn 2) - Jennifer Anniston (Turn 3)
jttm80: Hugh Laurie (Turn 2) - Samantha Morton (Turn 3)
redturtle: James Joyce (Turn 2) - Toni Collete (Turn 3)
Stompy: Janet Jackson (Turn 2) - Tori Spelling (Turn 3)
Talespinner: Anna-Nicole Smith (Turn 2) - Michael Jackson (Turn 3)

:idea: Annawid was the only person who picked up somebody of the same sex and a surname that fitted the criteria.

Ok agents, here is what I think:

I believe that Talespinner got Turn 1 Secret Message.

If dougp got the message, it is a man. If me or Talespinner, it it a woman.

Plus - if it is a man, his surname starts with J. If it is a woman, her surname starts with N or A.
Yeah, but I couldn't think of someone famous with those letters and I was under time pressure to get ready for going away. :?

So has anyone got it?

Are you going to do the map distance analysis?
Get a grip!

I have done extensive distance analysis, going so far as to write a computer program to do it for me, which I'd love to discuss, but I don't feel I could say anything without revealing if my guesses were the closest.

The problem with doing the distance analysis on a map is that, given the types of areas we are looking at, the curvature of the earth makes the distances deceptive. And the problem with doing it manually, city by city, using that excellent website christian mentioned, is that that would take ages.

I will say that even for the agent who knows who got all guesses (which I may or may not), they still have a few cities to guess from at this point.

Wow. Congratulations Talespinner. Enjoy your million credits.

I had the following cities as still possible for closest cities paris, prague, rome.

['Aden', 'Algiers', 'Amman', 'Asmara', 'Athens', 'Beirut', 'Benghazi', 'Brazzaville', 'Cairo', 'Cape Town', 'Damascus', 'Dar es Salaam', 'Izmir', 'Jedda', 'Jerusalem', 'Khartoum', 'Kinshasa (Leopoldville)', 'Kisangani (Stanleyville)', 'Lagos', 'Nairobi', 'Naples', 'Riyadh', 'Rome', 'Tel Aviv', 'Thessaloniki', 'Tunis']

I didn't know Rome was the closest in turn 3, and had guessed Oslo was the closest.

I guess if you didn't guess rome in turn 3, and realised that the first two cities were paris and prague, you were in the same boat as me. Here are the other posibilities:

assuming Vienna (dougp)...
['Abadan', 'Adana', 'Ankara', 'Baghdad', 'Belgrade', 'Bucharest', 'Budapest', 'Dhahran', 'Istanbul', 'Kharkov', 'Kiev', 'Krakow', 'Kuibyshev', 'Meshed', 'Mosul', 'Munich', 'Odessa', 'Prague', 'Rostov on Don', 'Sofia', 'Tbilisi', 'Tehran', 'Vienna', 'Volgograd', 'Warsaw']


assuming Oslo (Fernando)...
['Arkhangelsk', 'Helsinki', 'Saint Petersburg', 'Stockholm', 'Sverdlovsk']


assuming Copenhagen (redturtle)...
['Berlin', 'Copenhagen', 'Hamburg', 'Hannover', 'Kaliningrad', 'Minsk', 'Moscow']


assuming Geneva (Stompy)...
['Mannheim', 'Milan', 'Nice', 'Strasbourg', 'Zurich']


assuming Melbourne (jttm)...
[]
