So it must be 1. Has climbed Mount Kilimanjaro.

(That would be my guess without the smart-alecery anyway)

If it's two, your avatar is really ironic...

But then, using the Comedian's symbol in an ironic fashion would be some sort of weird meta-irony that would shred *worlds*

I'm sure it's one - you were waitlisted. (Also, you've got Chiapas in your Location field.)

I guess 1.

1) I once spent one of my birthday parties reading an atlas instead of playing on the bumper cars.
2) I never actually finished Zelda: Link's Awakening.
3) I am responsible for a major version bump of one of Portage's ebuilds.

2) I don't have an SNES
3) This statement is false

Yes, "stealing oil with pliers" was listed on my juvenile record. What's better is that I learned that was the case while being detained for going to school.

I propose we add a spoiler with the real answer into the three things posts so that the answer can be immediately checked.

Actually, my true one was number 2. The key mistake in 1 was "accepted". I was only, as warriorness said, waitlisted. Which is different.

And I've only been in Mexico since the end of July, so not quite a year.

But since I've been spending most of that time in hostels one place or another, I meet lots of travelers. And I ask them how to say I don't speak their language, in their language. So now I've got over 20 of them. :-)

Wait, wha? I would guess you were a major version bump.

I was ejected from a mall for:
1. accusation of stealing a cell phone.
2. playing chess in the food court.
3. getting into a fist fight.

Heh, forgot my own declaration:
Yes, I was thrown out of a mall for playing chess. Shame on me for not remembering I've already stated such here (not that I can remember what thread I would have nor why anyone would care what I have to say).

If you're asking why I was ejected for playing chess the answer is simple: We were teenagers in a mall not buying anything. Ignore the plethora of older (and "older") people not buying anything. Ignore the fact that the mall was nowhere near capacity. Obviously teenagers engaging in chess is a dire threat to capitalism and tranquility in our society.
