* My father-in-law, when he entered my girlfriend’s living room once, unbeknownst to her, caught a glimpse of the photo slide show that was on her pc screen, and saw me, her new boyfriend, posing in a lingerie set.

*When I was young, and still living with my parents and one day someone rung the front door.
My younger brother answered the door and saw a stranger standing with his hand cupped in front of him, asking my brother: “Is this frog yours?”

*At one point in my life I was three handshakes removed from Barack Obama.

raum's avatar

@rebbel Ha! I’m really hoping the first one is a truth! And the frog story is so cute. So I’m guessing the third one?

chyna's avatar

Number 3 is a lie on @rebbel.
1. In 10th grade I jumped off a bridge into the river. Everyone else was doing it!
2. While water rafting I got knocked out of the raft and was caught under the raft. I almost drowned until the guide was able to pull me out.
3. I accidentally caught my arm on fire while trying to light the fireplace. I had second degree burns.

raum's avatar

I’m going to guess #1.

I imagine if you’re jumping off a bridge, you’re the one that everyone else is copying. Or maybe you’re trying to cool off your second degree burns. :P

3 for chyna

KNOWITALL's avatar

1) My Mother In Law went on my honeymoon.
2) I am switching parties to the Natural Law Party.
3) I’ve kept off 10lbs+ all through Covid.

rebbel's avatar

My number….............., 1, was a lie (although he saw me once in a bikini top, which I wore for fun; still awkward).
2 and 3 are truthful.
My younger brother, from the frog, used to work a couple of years, as a spokesperson, for our Prime minister, Rutte, who visited the White House, and met with Obama.

@chyna‘s 1 is false, I suspect.

JLoon's avatar

Maybe lies now, but in the future…

KNOWITALL : #2
chyna: #3

And my story is -

1) Once, on a visit to New York I got a birthday kiss from Christopher Walken.
2) I flunked 1st grade, and got suspended from Sunday school in the same week.
3) I learned to drive on a John Deer tractor.

bob_'s avatar

1. I’m a black belt in tae kwon do.
2. Despite the sandwich jokes, I’m allergic to mayonaise.
3. I totalled two cars in a two-month period, sustaining no major injuries.

KNOWITALL's avatar

@JLoon Correct! It was dissolved mostly in 2004, kinda neat though.

Your lie is #2.

@bob_ #1 is a lie.

janbb's avatar

I can believe all of @JLoon‘s are true! Maybe #3 is the lie.
@bob I’m guessing #3.
@chyna #3, I hope.

1. I met my future husband while hitchhiking
2. I was arrested for shoplifting in a foreign country
3. I did an internship at the Library of Congress.

Yeahright's avatar

@KNOWITALL #3 is a lie.
@bob_ #3 is a lie.

Obviously, this is better when you know the people a little, which is not the case with me here, but what the heck, I think it’s fun:

1. I was BP’s CEO assistant for a few months.
2. I did a bungee jump while on vacation.
3. In my 20s I was in a Pepsi TV commercial wearing a bikini.

1: My father was in charge of what tires were put on Steve McQueen’s Mustang in the movie Bullitt. The stunt effects man would tell my Dad what the car had to do, and he told them which tires to put on the car.

2: I taught Arnold Schwartzenegger the meaning of the word Cramp.

3: I appear in the movie “A Night Full Of Rain”, walking behind Giancarlo Giannini.

chyna's avatar

@filmfann 2 is the lie.

Yeahright's avatar

@chyna lol wrong
@janbb #2
@filmfann it’s a toughy…they all look real in your case.

chyna's avatar

Number 3 is my lie.
I hung out with delinquents when I was in high school that convinced me to jump off a bridge.

janbb's avatar

@chyna Oh yeah, I could definitely see you doing that!

KNOWITALL's avatar

@janbb #2
@Yeahright #3 No lie, I can’t believe I haven’t pigged out. I must be a social eater and drinker! :)
@filmfann #3

filmfann's avatar

My lie is #3.
I was filmed doing that, but wasn’t in the released film.

JLoon's avatar

My lie is #2 – But only because they never believed I was that dumb (I was though).

janbb's avatar

My lie is #3. I fooled you all and I’m saying no more.

KNOWITALL's avatar

@JLoon Yay, I love being right haha!

@filmfann I was kind of excited to know if it was true!

KNOWITALL's avatar

@janbb Wow! Wild thang! Haha

JLoon's avatar

@bob – You’re leaving out so much… but I think you’re telling the truth about mayonaise.

And crashing the cars. Probably on your way to a sandwich feast.

Yeahright's avatar

My lie is #2 I have acrophobia (fear of heights).

smudges's avatar

Sheesh, I need a chart to keep everyone’s answers straight!

1. I modeled for Gibson guitars once, with one caption reading, “Get a load of those knobs!”
2. I tried to escape from a police station after being brought in for DUI.
3. A moose charged our car and dented it on a drive through Yellowstone.

JLeslie's avatar

@smudges #2

Gosh, this is hard, you all know so much about me.

1. My sight was better than 20/20 until my 30’s.
2. I have crossed the US border into Mexico by car more than once.
3. When I was little I used to love to go to the babysitting service (like a day care) while my parents went out on a date.

flutherother's avatar

@chyna 1. I’m not believing the guitar story
@JLeslie I believe all of yours, don’t keep us in suspense!

1. I met Princess Di’s mother
2. I was in hospital for three weeks following a car crash
3. I haven’t owned a car since 1999

Mimishu1995's avatar

@flutherother #1

1. I used to be on TV.
2. There would definitely be a timeline where @Mimishu1995 doesn’t exist, at all.
3. I was almost arrested once.

Mimishu1995's avatar

@chyna yes, 3 is a lie. It wasn’t once, but twice. One time was because I just happened to stand next to a vandalized shelf in the supermarket and didn’t know it and the employee thought I was the culprit, and the other time was because a classmate in middle school got into some shady business and the police somehow linked it to a conversation I had with her earlier.

I used to be on TV when I answered a question of the teacher while a cameraman was filming. And I almost felt down from the second floor of my house as a baby. My mom told me that she was going upstairs to hang some clothes when she saw me sitting on the thin railing of the balcony. It still remains a mystery how I managed to get there.

KNOWITALL's avatar

@smudges #1
@JLeslie #1
@flutherother #3

I feel like we should keep this going!

1) I graduated college at 21 years old.
2) I was in multiple beauty pageants and lost every time.
3) I live five minutes from the place I was brought home as a newborn.

chyna's avatar

KNOWITALL #2. I don’t believe you lost the pageants.

KNOWITALL's avatar

haha, I did lose every single time but I did place a few times in minor things like most photogenic!
I hated it so much I was stiff as a board and I was VERY shy so my face was never very pleasant (think Elvis lip curl) and I stuttered through my interviews.
My family also didn’t believe in children wearing some of the outfits the other girls wore, so I was dressed more old-fashioned.

Inspired_2write's avatar

1. Sang on stage in the 1960’s Beatles song “Do you Love me , yeah yeah yeah”.
2. Was on stage with prominent Evangelist.
3.Played “chicken” on the highway near our home.

bob_'s avatar

@chyna got it right, I’m not allergic to mayo.

filmfann's avatar

@Inspired_2write must be #1, since I am unaware of that song.

JLeslie's avatar

My number 2 is false. I’ve never driven across the southern border.

I did have better than 20/20 vision until my 30’s.

When I was a young, just over a year, my parents would take me to Walter Reed “day care” when they wanted to go out at night, and my mom said as soon as I realized we were pulling up to the hospital I would started reaching out practically trying to jump out of the car and babbling with excitement. My parents loved it, because they felt I was in a very safe place. When they picked me up I would cry, because I didn’t want to leave. I never had any separation anxiety. Such a nice service to have for the people who were active duty. My mom said there was a small fee.

Walter Reed is the military hospital in DC, USA. It was in DC then, now it is in Bethesda, MD.

KNOWITALL's avatar

@Inspired_2write I’m going with #3.
@filmfann She was probably typing too fast. looks like Love Me Do.

@JLeslie Got me, all were plausible. :)

flutherother's avatar

@KNOWITALL I’m going with #3
@Inspired_2write #1 seems the most plausible.

No one guessed mine right. I have never been hospitalised after a car smash but I did
meet Princess Di’s mother in 1995 when she gave a short speech at the AGM of the Highland Division of the Search and Rescue Dog Association of which she was a patron. She was living quietly near Oban in the West of Scotland at the time. She came over and spoke with us for a while with no airs and graces at all.

chyna's avatar

^Was she as pretty as princess Di?

flutherother's avatar

She had been striking in her day and she looked very like her daughter though she was about 60 years old when we met her.

Inspired_2write's avatar

@filmfann
@KNOWITALL
@JLeslie

All are true.
1. I sang and dressed as the Beatles in a Group in Grade nine Stage show.

2. Unwittingly coerced into going to The Billy Graham Ministry in a coliseum that held 5000 and since he had called those that wished to be blessed by him to come to the stage my only ride home ( female Holy Roller Neighbor) literally ran to the stage leaving me behind.
Knowing that I needed her to get back home , I joined her only to be singled out by the stage hand to follow him up these steps.

I was face to face with a HUGE man towering at 6 “4” to my then 5 feet 6”. He had huge hands that enveloped my shoulders and quickly ‘convinced me to “just” come with him and not to worry”

Long story short…said some things which was broadcast on his mic…“I am Not Baptist I am Catholic”.
That I was only staying close to my friend as I had no way to get home.”

He in turn used that in his adlibbed speech/sermon and asked the 50000 people starring at me under a huge spotlight

” Is there someone here who will take this women home? “I was embarrassed as that sounded a little too ambiguous…meaning as if trying to get a man for me to take me home???

3.In the 1960’s NO ID required to obtain cigarettes.
My Father was not able to go so he threw his car keys at me to get him some.( I had never driven a car before nor had a license) I was 17 yrs old, but after that he let me take the car and I observed his driving habits ( going up the wrong way on a one way street, in order to take a shortcut to our parking stall.

I got used to doing that but one day a oncoming car speeded off the highway onto that one way street coming towards me blasting his horn.
I calmly kept going and had lots of time to pull into the parking lot , so I did successfully.
Unfortunately both the Gas Station employees and my Dad in the apartment window observed what I did.
Dad got an ear full from the Gas Station attendants ( his friends) for HIS bad habits rubbing off onto me.

WE both took the long way around to the parking stall after that.
But it was a thrill and soon I was driving on my own and eventually got my license after a couple of years driving without one.

KNOWITALL's avatar

@flutherother Nope, I did NOT graduate college earlier than my peers.

@Inspired_2write Hey, you tricked us! :)

Inspired_2write's avatar

@filmfann
Yes it was “Love Me do”
Got mixed up with this song…love it!

Coming in late, but:

@JLeslie #3
@KNOWITALL #2
@Inspired_2write #1 Hey…you didn’t play fair!

smudges's avatar

@JLeslie & @KNOWITALL No, I really did try to escape a police station. A cop caught me around my waist and picked me up while another was yelling, “Close the door!”

@chyna No, I did do a one-time photo shoot for Gibson guitars, and that was the caption for one of the pics. They didn’t use any of them, though.

So #3 was the lie. No moose dented our car in Yellowstone.

Forever_Free's avatar

1) I met Prince, Bob Dylan, and Cat Stevens when I was a kid at my fathers workplace in a sound studio while recording.
2) I partied with the Red Hot Chilli Peppers at a little club in Santa Monica
3) During a business trip to Detroit, Bob Seger came into the hotel bar and let me buy him a beer.

chyna's avatar

@Forever_Free No. 2 is the lie.

smudges's avatar

I agree with @chyna.

Mimishu1995's avatar

@Forever_Free hasn’t come back to verify anything yet, so I guess I’ll start:

1. I love tea.
2. I love Pho.
3. I love hamburger.

flutherother's avatar

@Mimishu1995 I’m going to guess #3 hamburger though I suspect you may be trying to bluff us.

chyna's avatar

I guess number 3, too for @mimishu1995

downtide's avatar

I can’t keep track of which ones have been answered or not. But for @Mimishu1995 I will guess #3

And here’s mine, all sporty ones:
1. I have driven a sports car around Brands Hatch (racetrack in the UK) at 120mph
2. I have sailed a 22ft sailing yacht in a force 8 wind
3. I have abseiled off a 100ft bridge

flutherother's avatar

@downtide I’m guessing the Brands Hatch sports car story is untrue. #1.

downtide's avatar

@flutherother ooh you’re quick, and correct.

Brands Hatch is untrue because I can’t actually drive at all.

I sailed the yacht as part of an “experience” day, there were 8 of us; two experienced sailors and 6 including me who had never been on a boat before. The weather was rough and they were on the verge of cancelling, but since all us novices were adults and good swimmers they decided to go. It was a little scary in one or two points but no-one fell overboard and overall I loved it. Wish I could afford to do it again.

The abseiling was another “experience” day. Again, I’d never done it before. I was in a group of about 20 and was very nervous about it, We went down in pairs, I was last. Just as I got to the bottom, the organiser asked if anyone wanted to go again. I was the first to say “Hell, YES!”

Brian1946's avatar

@Mimishu1995

“I love Pho”

Using a counterintuitive approach, I’ll guess that #2 will be phalse Phorever! ;-p

Thanks for asking 2 sets of questions, because your first set was already answered before I got a chance to guess. ;-)

Brian1946's avatar

1. I was attacked by a cobra in India.
2. My family and I emigrated from Canada, the same month and year that Einstein died (April, 1955).
3. The movie that best represents my views on weed is “Reefer Madness”!

Forever_Free's avatar

sorry, I went AWOL because the sun was actually out.

The lie is #2. While I did meet RHCP at a little club in Santa Monica back in the late 80’s, I did not party with them.
The others are true.

Mimishu1995's avatar

@Brian1946 is actually correct :D Sometimes the most counterintuitive thing is the right thing :)

You wouldn’t believe it, but Pho is actually not that spectacular to me, and not many young people think of Pho as their first choice of food. I think Pho is too overrated. There are more dishes I can think of that should be known more than Pho like this or this. There are actually much fewer Pho restaurants now than in the past, if it adds anything.

Hamburgers, especially the ones that are made in American style, are great :D

Mimishu1995's avatar

@Brian1946 I’m going to guess #1, just because I don’t remember hearing about you going to India before.

Brian1946's avatar

@Mimishu1995

#1 is true. It happened while I was posing with a baby python in New Delhi. Luckily the snake handlers used a cobra whose mouth was stitched shut.
This was after we had trekked around the Annapurna massif in Nepal.

If you like, please post another set of challenges. I used a text finder to try to verify that all the other sets have been answered.

downtide's avatar

Three more from me, this time, travel-themed.

1. I have been on the Maid of the Mist at Niagara.
2. I have been camping in the Appalachian mountains.
3. I have ridden a camel in Tunisia.

smudges's avatar

@Brian1946 #3 is false (Luckily the snake handlers used a cobra whose mouth was stitched shut. That’s just horrid!! animal abuse!! omg I didn’t need to know that)

@downtide #1?

Brian1946's avatar

@smudges

You’re right- #3 is WAY false.

I agree about the cobra.
I wouldn’t have agreed to the transaction (5 rupees to cuddle with the python), if I had known they were going to include a surgically violated cobra.
If they or their suppliers had never taken the cobra from its natural habitat, I wouldn’t have had to worry about it striking my arm.

I guess they also kidnapped the young python from its home, so now I try not to support anything that involves kidnapped and imprisoned animals, including zoos.

smudges's avatar

@Brian1946 Awww…bless your heart! <3 (Although, without responsible zoos, some species would already be gone, and a lot of others would be on their way out)

p.s. I live in the city with the largest zoo in the world! Can you guess?

@smudges

I wasn’t able to guess, but I know how to scroll. ;-)
I never would have guessed that you live in the other LoL (Land of Lincoln, NE). ;-o

Mimishu1995's avatar

OK @Brian1946, I go again:

1. I have been to a foreign country before.
2. I enjoy posing as a man sometimes.
3. All of my friends in real life know I’m working on a book.

Mimishu1995's avatar

@Brian1946 now I know the reason why you have a mountain as your avatar :)

@downtide I’m going to guess #3, because the other two are more plausible.

Brian1946's avatar

@Mimishu1995

1. True, and as I recall, that country was Thailand.
2. False. If I’m wrong, how about posting at least your illustration of your manhood? ;-p

flutherother's avatar

@downtide I’m guessing #2 is false
@Mimishu1995 #2 is false

downtide's avatar

@Mimishu1995 You are correct. I’ve been on the Maid of the mist and I’ve camped in the Appalachians, but I’ve never been to Tunisia. Or been anywhere near a camel.
