Getting to know Flutherers - Want to play "Two Truths and a Lie"?

Asked by Simone_De_Beauvoir (38932points) May 22nd, 2009

I understand I don’t know many of you that well and this game will help. Everyone gets to put 3 statements about yourself and we get to guess which of the 3 is a lie. I’ll start…

1. I was held up at a border between U.S. and Canada

2. I am a hustler at billiards

3. I danced with the Zulu people

I have walked on hot coals.

Simone_De_Beauvoir's avatar

@Les then Number 1?
and you’re right for mine

evelyns_pet_zebra's avatar

@Simone_De_Beauvoir number 3 is correct. I’ve never been skiing in my life.

Dog's avatar

1. On our honeymoon out of the country I took water samples from fountains and drinking water in sterile vials for microbial analysis back home.

2. I used to participate in stock car racing and one time took first place once with my vintage 79’ Cobra Mustang. (I loved that car)

3. Vodka does not affect me and thus I was able to win drinking contests with ease when I was in my teens.

_bob's avatar

@Facade Wrong again :P

2. Had George Burns sing to me
3. Will be in a book coming out in October

tinyfaery's avatar

Correct. #1 The only other countries I have been to are Canada and Mexico. I thought for sure you’d pick #3.

forestGeek's avatar

I talk to raisins
I was a forest ranger, but have Xylophobia
I am related to Lawrence Welk

Simone_De_Beauvoir's avatar

@forestGeek what’s hylophobia? and who’s Lawrence Welk?

forestGeek's avatar

I made them both up, but they are completely true! :)

Simone_De_Beauvoir's avatar

@forestGeek so you don’t talk to raisins? too bad

forestGeek's avatar

Oh, dammit, i gave that away…or did i?

eponymoushipster's avatar

@forestGeek that’s too bad, because raisins are pretty damn smart.

CMaz's avatar

Did it come off that easy? Yes it is #1
Puerto Rican women are very beautiful. But, I do not have a preference. Beauty comes in all shapes, sizes and cultures.

_bob's avatar

@ChazMaz I picked it because Puerto Rican coffee is not all that popular.

CMaz's avatar

LOL – Ya know. I say that saying all the time, and I never looked at it that way.
Bravo!

_bob's avatar

I could be wrong, though. I don’t drink coffee, and the only countries that come to my mind as being famous for their coffee are Brazil, Mexico, Turkey, Egypt and Italy.

CMaz's avatar

Actually, it is a color joke. Like my women how I like my coffee. Black.

_bob's avatar

@ChazMaz Here are some ways I like my coffee.

bythebay's avatar

1. I didn’t get my drivers license until I was almost 20.
2. I have over 65 first cousins.
3. I jumped into a pen with several live sharks; yet I suffer from selachophobia.

Dog's avatar

@bythebay 3

@Simone_De_Beauvoir Nope- I really did collect water samples for microbial testing while on my honeymoon in a foreign country.

Who else has not told yet? I think Tao is #3

TaoSan's avatar

TaoSan says: 3!

Volksmusik brrrrrrrrrr! ooooompah ooooompah oooompahpah

Dansedescygnes's avatar

1. I’ve gotten nothing but solid straight A’s on my report cards for as long as I can remember.
2. My family owns a private jet and I’ve been on it.

@Dansedescygnes I go with 1

PandoraBoxx's avatar

1. I’m really into indie music.
2. I was a Flutherite before, in a different life.
3. When I’m stressed, I run long distances to release endorphins.

PandoraBoxx's avatar

@TaoSan, hahaha I was was going to translate something appropriate into German and came up with: Eine Katze mit Handschuhen fängt keine Mäuse.

I’ll stick to English…

bythebay's avatar

@bythebay says #1 is the big lie! I drove long before I even turned 16! Number 3 is totally true – face your fears, right? ok, I was a little braver because of all the margaritas!

Tink's avatar

1. I study sea animals
2. I’m immuned to insect bites
3. I’m allergic to latex

Tink's avatar

No I am allergic to latex #1 is the wrong one

Tink's avatar

@pandoraboxx Welcome!

PandoraBoxx's avatar

Thank you, Tink!

Tink's avatar

You welcome :)

Dog's avatar

@Simone_De_Beauvoir You got it! I did love my 79’ Mustang Cobra and it was a very fast street racer I never took first in a stock race.

Dansedescygnes's avatar

@bob_ @Dog @PandoraBoxx @Simone_De_Beauvoir

Simone got it right! I’ve never been to Asia or South America along with Antarctica.

The other two are all fact! By report cards I mean semester report cards; I don’t remember every progress report and quarter report. And I thought everyone would say #2 because no believes that’s true, but it totally is. :P

Loried2008's avatar

My number two is a lie :)

breedmitch's avatar

1. A very famous singer is my godfather.
2. I have performed for the Queen of England.
3. I can hold my breath for over two minutes.

breedmitch's avatar

Yep. Too easy??

eponymoushipster's avatar

@breedmitch so who’s the very famous singer?

PandoraBoxx's avatar

@Simone_De_Beauvoir, nope, 3 is not true. In times of stress, I turn to ice cream as my one true friend.

Loried2008's avatar

Ice cream way to go!
