Ok, the game is simple.

Give 3 statements about yourself, 2 truths and 1 lie.

Your job is to identify which is the lie.

Rules

  • Do not offend anyone
  • Quote the statements when giving your guess
  • Explain why you think it’s a lie
  • Have fun!
  • Use [ispoiler]to hide your lie when you reveal it to us[/ispoiler]
    • will look like this: to hide your lie when you reveal it to us

To start, here’s my statements!

1) Black coffee is my drink of choice
2) I had 2 snakes with the names “Ac” + “robat”
3) I have a cat named Puppy

edit: added rule to use ispoiler

I would say 1 is the lie. Even if I know a lot of woman drinking black coffee and man drink it with milk. 😅
2 would clarify your choice of python. 🐍 and 3 I rate you like a funny person doing jokes like this. 🙈

My ones - programming (pretty hard!):
1) I enjoy writing JavaScript for myself
2) I enjoy writing CSS/SCSS for myself
3) I enjoy writing PHP for OpenSource

Knowing you I think I'm gonna say 1 is a lie. At least I can rule out 3. 😄

Here's mine:
1) I've got a scar on my head (eyebrow) from running in to a toilet seat 💩
2) I've got scars on my arm from open fracture by cycling in to a lamppost 🚴‍♀️
3) I've got a scar on my leg from an ice skating accident ⛸

@VickiLanger when do we have to answer? Should we answer after the first guess? Or wait a day?

@Adam I would say that 2 is a lie because I had a lot of bicycle accidents and never got at least near an open fracture just by cycling into something. 😂
If it's true you should tell us what kind of lampposts you have in the UK and why the *** they put spikes, knifes and guns on it? 😉 🤣

But the story behind the toilet scar would be also interesting.^^ I hope you were a child, otherwise I would be interested how you got your head on toilet height!? 😂

Coffee is nasty.

I never thought about that before, but they were ball pythons.

Um, I’m not really sure. I remembered playing the game in previous forums but have no clue how we did it. I wonder what would work best

The toilet and skating scars seem pretty realistic. The lamppost seems extreme. How fast would you have to have been going for an open fracture!? Or was it an attack lamppost?

I’m gonna say JavaScript is a lie because no one enjoys that
I'm glad that I successfully lied to you! 🎉 😄
Number 2 is the lie. The major phrase was the "for myself". 😉 As long as I do it for my own project or on GameJams JS is, believe it or not, somehow and sometimes my language of choice. For sure JS will never beat PHP for me. But there are cases I already picked JS over PHP. For example I created a SEO data crawler because a customer needed all his titles, descriptions & keywords per page in an excel list - doing it in JS was faster developed, faster running AND more reliable because the HTML parsing abilities are better.
But I really hate poking pixels by myself. I've no glue how I should combine HTML, CSS & JS to get a wanted result and get crazy after changing "padding: Xpx" for a thousand times and it was everytime ugly. But the responsive part is the thing that really drives me nuts. Tablet is the breakpoint that ALWAYS looks ugly, there should be a noble prize for the dev that achieves a design that looks good on smartphone, desktop AND tablet.^^ And all the changing order of elements via CSS, all the flex **** and so on ... 🤯

JS is at least a programming language which I could use to create software.^^ And after some time I at least understood the JS scopes. 😂
Now I only have to understand Vue.JS - or not because of Inertia.js - The Modern Monolith which saves my ass. 🤣

That was my second choice lie. I’m with you, making something look good is a nightmare.

@Adam I think yours is #1 - I think the gist is true but the details are a lie :P

Mine:

1) I once bit somebody hard enough to draw blood
2) My friend and I snuck into a bank and almost got accidentally locked inside at 4am
3) I love eating steak

Wrong again! That leaves just one left for the astute reader. 😆

I'm going to go with 3 simply because it seems the most non-specific. However, remind me not to get on your bad side if #1 is in fact true.

In that case I'm glad - getting sliced while skating is a huge irrational fear of mine!
Absolutely! Particularly fingers getting chopped off.

Can you handle the truth? Click 👇 (tw: xray)

Just clipped my handlebar and it threw me over the front. My 2 bones broke through the skin on the front and they cut the back open to put metal plate in. Gnarly!

I couldn't find a 'recoiling in horror' emoji so you'll have to imagine it, but that's my reaction to your comment! Hope you don't have any long-term complications!

The metal has since been taken out but it is still a prominent topic in therapy 8 years later. 😳 Anyway...! Looking forward to hearing which of yours is true... 😆
