This is a game we played recently in a class I was in.

Tell two things related to yourself that are true and one thing that is a lie and we'll try to guess which is the lie.

I'll start. (darn, BobG will know most of the stuff about me from other posts :grumpy: ) Ok, here we go.

I had my own tv show when I was 16.

One of my relatives was married to the Bride of Frankenstein.

One of my ancestors was the wealthiest man in the US in the late 18th century.

Correct, it was a radio show.

Come on, post some odd facts. You don't need to wait until the previous poster's has been guessed to add your own.

blah, Townsend beat me.

I am going to go with the second one here. I don't think you have driven a car over 230mph.

Ahh I remember playing this game once in high school.

I am half African-American
I listen to old school gangsta rap from the 90s
I once got a score of 71 playing minesweeper on expert.

230 mph is too fast, I'm voting that.

I've been proposed to 3 times (in real life - as in, not over the internet)

One of my relatives was a mechanic and fixed German trucks in WW2.

I spent several years in Somalia as a child.

Yeah I just did that so I could add them in later since Townsend had beat me. (I thought we would be doing it one at a time.

Smurf got it right though. I am not half-black. Although women often question me on that after seeing my penis :rofl:

Yep, my grandfather's cousin was Charles Laughton, aka "the hunchback of Notre Dame" and Captain Bligh. :tongue2:

None, he left his money to charity. His family had the will contested by none other than Daniel Webster, and Webster lost.

I used to live around a drag strip in Marion SD...

What do you suppose a blown 500 CID Dodge hemi in a cuda with a lenco tyranny can do on an open rode? The engine dynoed at about 850 break horsepower IIRC...

A remarkably fine actor, but he did usually play villains and strange characters.
His family had the will contested by none other than Daniel Webster, and Webster lost.
Wow, you have quite a rich family history.

Doesn't do me any good. :grumpy: But I'm not a direct descendant anyway, that part of the family is an offshoot.

Since no one's going

1. I'm three years ahead of all my classmates in age.
2. I rank in the top 20 of the world's best minesweeper expert times
3. I hold passports from three countries.


edit: Gale is disqualified from this one :)

Three years ahead, as in three years older or younger? This is a tough one. :grumpy: I know a person can have two passports (dual national), but three I don't know.

I will say the first two are true.
