    Two Truths and a Lie - a game

    We're too serious up in hurr, guys. Let's play a game.

    The rules are simple: You have to state three things about yourself. Two are the truth, and one is a lie. The poster below has to guess which it is, and then post two truths and a lie about themselves.

    I'll go first:

    - I prefer non-traditional breakfast foods.
    - My cat is two months younger than my tenure on this forum.
    - English is not my first language.
    We are all these things [...]. Pride, desire, compassion, cleverness, belligerence, fruitfulness, loyalty...and guilt. But above it all stands love. And if we desire to be more than human, that is the star by which we must set our sights.

    Questions of science, science and progress, do not speak as loud as my heart.

    Hot Pickle!

    You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.

    “Leaving is not enough. You must stay gone. Train your heart like a dog. Change the locks even on the house he’s never visited. You lucky, lucky girl. You have an apartment just your size. A bathtub full of tea. A heart the size of Arizona, but not nearly so arid. Don’t wish away your cracked past, your crooked toes, your problems are papier mache puppets you made or bought because the vendor at the market was so compelling you just had to have them. You had to have him. And you did. And now you pull down the bridge between your houses, you make him call before he visits, you take a lover for granted, you take a lover who looks at you like maybe you are magic. Make the first bottle you consume in this place a relic. Place it on whatever altar you fashion with a knife and five cranberries. Don’t lose too much weight. Stupid girls are always trying to disappear as revenge. And you are not stupid. You loved a man with more hands than a parade of beggars, and here you stand. Heart like a four-poster bed. Heart like a canvas. Heart leaking something so strong they can smell it in the street.”

    Frida Kahlo to Marty McConnell

    Meh, I'm gonna say you're fibbing on three but I'm not entirely sure on that.

    I love pizza.
    I don't watch Doctor Who.
    I'm entirely too fond of whiskey for my own good.

    "When to the Force you truly give yourself, all you do expresses the truth of who you are,"

    Yoda

    Yoda told stories, and ate, and cried, and laughed: and the Padawans saw that life itself was a lightsaber in his hands; even in the face of treachery and death and hopes gone cold, he burned like a candle in the darkness. Like a star shining in the black eternity of space.

    Yoda: Dark Rendezvous

    "But those men who know anything at all about the Light also know that there is a fierceness to its power, like the bare sword of the law, or the white burning of the sun." Suddenly his voice sounded to Will very strong, and very Welsh. "At the very heart, that is. Other things, like humanity, and mercy, and charity, that most good men hold more precious than all else, they do not come first for the Light. Oh, sometimes they are there; often, indeed. But in the very long run the concern of you people is with the absolute good, ahead of all else..."

    John Rowlands, The Grey King by Susan Cooper

    "You come from the Lord Adam and the Lady Eve", said Aslan. "And that is both honour enough to erect the head of the poorest beggar, and shame enough to bow the shoulders of the greatest emperor on earth; be content."

    You are correct. English is my first language ....I would have guessed number two as being the lie for you.

    Is number three wrong?

    1. I own a guitar, but still don't know how to play it.
    2. My favourite beer on a hot summer's day is budweiser.
    3. My favourite ice cream as a kid was bubble gum.

    Actually I was fibbing about Whiskey . I'm familiar with Doctor Who due to SpaceBattles and watching Youtube clips but I don't actually watch full episodes.

    I think I've had Whiskey maybe twice and my opinion was pretty neutral at the time. Liquor of any sort tends to max out at, "Not bad, I may have a drink if I have nowhere to be in six hours." I go through more soda in three days than I do alcohol of any kind in most months.

    Anyway, I'm gonna say you're fibbing on Budweiser just because I've never heard anyone outside the US say anything positive about American beer.

    1) My favorite gun is a kind of shotgun.
    2) I do not enjoy coding in HTML
    3) I own a sword taller than some people.

    2 sounds plausible, I really want 3 to be true. So I'm gonna guess 1 is the lie?

    No I do own a ukulele. I'm rubbish at playing it, but I have one. It's 2, I don't like horror.

    Is 2 the lie?

    1. I've never been outside of Europe
    2. I prefer tea over coffee
    3. I play the piano

    2? Here I'm just guessing at random.

    Also I was fibbing about 1, I'm not a fan of shotguns. Pistols and some rifles, yes. Shotguns, not if I'm the one shooting them. Granted, upon examination, 3 requires that the person be pretty short. The sword reaches (including handle) my chest. Most adults will be taller but I've met some exceptions.

    1) I have never played a dark side character in Knights of the Old Republic
    2) My favorite character class in Neverwinter Nights 2 is warlock
    3) I have yet to finish Mass Effect 1.

    1 is the fib. Since you haven't guessed at my last one, I'll leave those in place till someone does.
