Nothing good at all. As a matter of fact it is hard to understand why he does it all. There are many theories.

He uses computers but he does not produce anything as I said. Most people do not even know he is there but he is next to you right now.

In What's My Line the panel had to find out in 20 questions .

bobbym did say:

They usually failed.

ie. They ran out of questions.

One strategy is to ask a few off-beat questions at the start so you get a broad picture of who you are after.

As we have few left, maybe we should discuss this together a bit before commiting to any more questions.

The no say rule is that I never said anything about any sort of limit. Though it should be implied.

I do not know if this is allowed but 5 and 7 are both slighty inaccurate.
