I always play this when I have a new class of students as it’s a great ice breaker. Thought it would be fun here. You post three ‘facts’ about yourself, one of which is a lie. We have to guess which one is the lie.
powerlifting for joetehman because samsamsamsmsms didn’t point one out
you flying the F-16C fighter jet in the Air Force for 15 years Samsam, as even though it’s possible I don’t think you’d be going for your PHD that late
Here’s for me
I had two fingers sewn back onto my hand after severing them right before the Spongebob Pre-historic Special
I discovered I had a “new” 54 year old Aunt just last year when my grandmother was able to find her through facebook. She had planned to keep the secret until her grave.
I’m extremely allergic to potatoes, and it makes my life a living nightmare. I didn’t always have this allergy, it developed just in the past few years and now I break out in a rash and my lips swell up when I have them. It’s one of the most unfair things to happen to me in life. Sometimes I take a benodryl just so that I can eat some chips
Partially right. I’m indeed not 400k in depth (it was euros btw, not USD), but that one was real. Me and some other students had the best result for a project, so the company we did this project for invited us to the racing circuit in Zandvoort (in The Netherlands). There we could race with BMWs, Porches and Formula Fs (not F1, not sure which one anymore, but the actual Formula models).
I only had my drivers license for about a year back then, and when we were driving on the straight part of the course with the Porches everyone was going full speed at about 200-210 km/h. Right before the turn at the end everyone stood on the break a bit sooner than I anticipated, and so I ‘softly’ crashed into the driver before me, whom in turn crashed in the one in front of him (and the one behind me barely missed me but also had some damage).
It wasn’t a very hard crash, I think I was still at about 30 km/h when I crashed. But even then it was quite a shock. Even though you are completely protected in a metal frame at the inside, and have a helmet and double safety belts as well, I did have a blood noose, and the one in front of me had pain in his neck and back. The main damage was the outside frame, but the inside nor engine or anything was damaged. So the damage wasn’t nearly 400k, but the Porches themselves are worth 100k euros each in total. And everything was insured and covered by the racing circuit.
PS: I never parachute-jumped in my life.
PSS: I’ve only beat that former Badminton champion in doubles. Although he was part of our club for a few years (and I lost most of the time I was playing against him; although I did won some).
@garyis2000 Forgive me, but I don’t think you have a doctorate in biochem.
I’m a published writer
I’ve swam with sharks with no protective gear (no cages, chain mail, etc)
I’ve traveled to four continents
Lol…you’re right but not by much. I had one year left for my masters at UCLA but quit to open a video television store in Hollywood when video cassette recorders first came out. There was a battle between VHS and Beta for format dominance.
Oh…you definitely never swam with sharks. You’re waaaaaaay too smart for that.)
