I would have to guess 1


Here's mine
1. In the past two years, has never been wrong about how good and how successful a movie would be, simply based on its trailer
2. Is currently Directing, Writing, and appearing in a Zombie movie
3. Nearly died in New Zealand

The answer is 3, I nearly fell off of Lion rock when I was 6, and have a scar on my eyebrow to prove it. For 1 I was wrong about how good 1 movie was(Doogal), and I was wrong about the success of another movie(grindhouse). And for 3 I am just writing and appearing in a zombie movie

For some reason I read that as "lolimanjaro". I say 3

Okay yeah I'm confusing myself here. I'm used to playing this game as "one of these is false"... Right, so here's another, correctly done, set of three for me:

1) I have never broken a bone in my life.
2) In 6th grade, I won first place by myself in the state science olympiad.
3) Except for my speakers, I have bought none of the computer set-up with which I'm currently posting.

1. I haven't, but you probably have.
2. Unlikely, which is why I think it's the one.
3. Very likely, but might be a trap.

@warriorness: 2 would be the most obvious answer(XKCD being what it is), so I'm going with 3.

3. Strange, but weirdly plausible. I vote 3.

One of the following is true:
1. I won a game called Digimon Yahtzee Jr.
2. I have a Diddy Kong plush on top of my desk.
3. I have a 6.1 surround sound speaker system.

EDIT: We have a winner!
For 1, the game (<--DARN IT) was Pokemon Yahtzee Jr.; and for 3, I have a 5.1 system.

1) My brother's hamster died of a stroke <- No, it died from cancer. Still pretty frightening.

3) I know the world champion in kayak "riding" <- No, but the vice-champion.

2) I once had a chest hair that was 15cm long <- Awwwright! I only have, like, five chest hairs, but they get incredibly long. Unfortunately, it fell off several months ago, and my new one is "only" about 7cm.

Lets do one on which ways I have nearly died.


1. I was nearly drowned in the US

2. I was attacked by a dropbear in Australia

3. I was in a serious car accident in Italy

I would guess it's the car accident.

I:
1. Have never been to a foreign country.
2. Have family that works in EA, so i get to beta test some games.
3. Once broke my shin by dropping a TV on it.

It's not the car accident, I nearly drowned once. All my other real how I nearly died stories are numerous, but generally they just have to do with people nearly stabbing me, nearly hitting me with a throwing axe/knife, or nearly getting shot by people dicking around.


And I would say 3. you broke your shin by dropping a tv on it.

I don't think they'd let you beta test games just because your relation works there, and you'd have to drop a television in a very strange way (while climbing stairs?) in order for it to break your shin. So I say you've never left the country, you sheltered child.

1. I can play Ode to Joy backwards.
2. I major in Math and English
3. I know someone who has access to half of KFC's secret recipe.

2, which is really pretty boring in comparison with the others. Actually, I always use number 1 when I play this game. Maybe I should actually learn how.

It can't be 3, because if I remember that's just a myth (or was that Coca-Cola). I'll say 1, because that's just cool.

Naw, it's 3.
I might have mis-phrased that, I didn't drop the tv, my brother did.
I lying in a sofa reading something, and my brother had just bought a new tv. And of course the cretin decides to drop the tv, just as he passed me.

...And that is how I helped my uncle of a horse.

I guess 2, and if it's true, you should finish because it is an awesome game. Anyway:

1. I have lived in 4 different countries (Bonus points for guessing which ones).
2. I have taken part in and won a small town Guitar Hero tournament.
3. I play a mean banjo.

Answer
Spoiler:
I have lived in Belgium, U.S., Estonia, and currently Egypt.
So it goes.

I'll guess number 2. Number 3 strikes me as hard to believe, though I may be taking it too literally. I expect a prompt reply to my guesses. I'm only 3 years late! EDIT: Seems I'm actually almost 4 years late.

Number 3. Seems possible.

Here are mine:
1. I accidentally joined the Australian Labor Party
2. I can't eat if someone is talking to me
3. I once tried to read the dictionary and gave up before getting to the end of "a"

I'm guessing your nose never bled, you said it's obscure and I thought that happens to everybody.

So while I'm on the subject, one of these is true for me:
1. I fainted during my final exam in high school
2. I broke my wrist bobsledding down a hill with no snow on it
3. I lost my first baby tooth hitting my head on a radiator

I'm guessing a, because that is the most embarassing option out of all of them.

1. I am 14
2. I have only lived in one country
3. I have had stitches at some time in my life

And another one:
1. I have never ice skated before
2. I was born in March
3. I once had my phone ring in an exam
