If you ever went to summer camp, you're probably familiar with this game. It's a classic "getting to know you" exercise.

The idea is that you will tell three things about yourself. Two of them are true, and one of them is a lie. The aim of the game is for others to figure out which one isn't true.

So, I'll set up some rules. The original poster (in this case me) will tell three facts about themselves. Two of those must be true, and the third will be false. The next posters will have to call out the one that's a lie. The first person that susses out the lie will be the next person who can post "two truths and a lie." And then so on and so on.

Since it's a "getting to know you game," tell a quick little story about your two truths and the one lie. Then pass the baton to the next person.

I'll start:

1. I was born and raised in Alaska.
2. I am an ordained minister.
3. I have eaten live ants in the jungles of Ecuador.

Two of those facts are true, one is a lie.

Mofo, I think all three could be true but I will go for 1 & 2 being true and 3 being a lie.  Smile

A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

Let me give it a go . . .

1.  I climbed within 200 feet of the top of Mt. Fuji, but did not make the summit due to altitude sickness.
2.  When I was in the Navy, my ship was in a horrible collision, but not a single life was lost.
3.  I have caught a live alligator while on vacation in Florida.

Again, all three could be true but I'm going to go with 1 and 2 again: all three could be true.  TeddyR

Mofo - I'm gonna go with eating live ants as being a lie.

Indy - I don't think you ever caught an alligator   TeddyR

Mofo I think # 2 is a lie.

Indy I think #1 is a lie.

Let me try:

I went to a comic book convention dressed like the Emporer from Star Wars.
I came across a long lost cousin while helping a friend check into a hotel.
I have a scar on my forehead from whacking my head on a nighstand when I was two.

My turn:

1. I was born and raised in what was then Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe): the English translation of the city's name I was born in (Bulawayo) means 'place of the killing'.  Buggedout
2. I absolutely love anti-South African films.
3. I like to let the Joan Collins in me out occasionally.

Okay, Trevor . . . something is amiss when you don't mention underpants in one of your posts.


Here are 3 for me:

1. I have never been arrested.
2. I once had a girlfriend who was both a stripper and a wiccan.
3. I once had sex with a divorced mom who lived in my neighborhood and was 25 years older than me.

Trevor,

I have paid attention to your posts in the past because of my high regard for you. I remember you saying before that you were born in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe), but I'm pretty sure I remember a comment or two demonstrating a fascination for Joan Collins.

However, neither of those matter because I positively KNOW that #2 is a lie.

Oh come on. I'm sure Trevor has expressed glowing praise of Lethal Weapon 2. Wink
Small | Large


1. I once felled a fully-grown tree with my bare hands.
2. I've been on television (as an active participant) at least half a dozen times.
3. I've met three prime ministers of Canada.

Mofo: I don't believe you've been to Ecuador.
Indy: I'll have to go with you never caught an alligator.
DS: You'd never help a friend check into a hotel, you'd tell the lazy ass to do it himself.
Trevor: Way too easy!   Wink
Burgo: I'll say you never had sex with a woman 25 years older than you.
Andy C: #1 is tempting, but it could have been a bonsai tree.  So I'll say you've only met 2 Canadian Prime Ministers.

Here's mine:

1. In college signed a pledge to fight for Ukraine if they ever sought to break away from the Soviet Union.
2. I have written two novels and between them I've collected more than 40 rejection notices from publishers.
3. I once smoked crack cocaine and it had no noticeable effect on me.

Correct.  You win a 12-month supply of underpants (which for you, I gather, is one pair).   TeddyR

Trev I'm going with # 2 as a lie

Andy I'll go with #1

Rev, I think you're kind of too respectable to do #3

I'll let a few more people guess on mine and then I'll do the reveal.
