let's play get to know the forum

Postby shoemak38 » Sat Jan 22, 2011 6:34 pm

Learned a cool trick at some training I recently attended. Each member of the class was required to tell three facts about themselves and one lie. So if everyone is up to it let's play get to know the forum. Inspiration from what's the top five songs on your MP3 player.
First the rules always have to have rules you know.
First-person to guess the correct lie becomes the next person to post the three truths and one lie for everyone else to guess.
They are responsible for informing the winner.
Truths and lies must be obscure facts about you.

Being that I thought of the game I get to go first.
1. I owned a Volkswagen minibus with shag carpeting and curtains with the backseat removed and a 6 inch foam bed installed.
2. I've gone mushroom picking in the Black Forest in Bavaria Germany.
3. I been 600 feet underground in the State of Vermont.
4. I've used the pickup line “want to go to Monte Carlo for the weekend”
when I said obscure facts , I really meant obscure facts

we have a winner on first guess :)

I did all the work on a minibus myself also installed six speaker and a 60 W amp have to love the 70s. As to going underground remember the old Johnson & Johnson talcum powder used to come from Vermont and I worked there as a mining engineer . As to the pickup line I used it when I was the Army in Germany and we did go Monte Carlo during the Columbus Day weekend.

Was I right? I don't know why it posted three times, other than I have had two glasses of wine so far and I am on my iPad!
