Lie To Me

Postby Matt » Wed Feb 25, 2015 10:37 am

Yo!

Thought I'd start a new fun game, that can also reveal a little bit about each other!

You basically have to put three facts about yourself - only one of which is true, and you guys have to guess which one is real.

So...

1) I'm 6'6" tall.
2) I drive a German car.
3) I play the guitar.

Go!

'Fraid not! I'm actually 6'2"! I also drive a Japanese car, not German. I do, however, play the guitar!

Who's next?

I know you're female... I'm gonna say New York is the truth. Actually, I remember you talking about learning guitar, nvm that. New York is the lie

Correct. Should have chosen better lies on that one. :P

1. I'm considered male soprano. Slightly embarrassing
2. I've had a great deal of scars, the longest being over 2 feet long.
3. I'm trying for a career in computer design.

I've actually talked about all three of these things before on the site, before it became all fragmented,

1. I am far from Mezzo Soprano, that is an incredibly high male voice part. I am on the opposite side of the spectrum, Bass 3, and can hit pretty close to the bottom of a piano. I love that.

2.I do indeed have a two foot scar, in fact, it's closer to three feet. That has to do with the fact that as a child, I averaged at least 1 surgery per year. They won't even operate on my left eye anymore. Too much scar tissue.

3. Web design is my career of choice. This is actually very different from computer design. (Web design designs websites, computer design designs computers) It's slightly nit-picky, but hey, it worked!

Haha! This is too much fun to pass up. XD

Okay:

1. I graduated from my university with a 3.97 GPA, and never once had to pull an all-nighter.
2. I have a partiality to any and all things spicy.
3. My absolute favorite stand-alone novel is Moby Dick. (Or at least as far as classics go.)

Opal sets into motion her most diabolical scheme yet, to frame Artemis and turn his closest friends against him. Only this time she has a new calculating partner who knows Artemis better than he knows himself. [Post TAC]

That GPA thing? That's my goal in life, so I'm going to say that that's possible, and you proved it.

Ding ding ding! That's correct. (;

1. The GPA thing is less significant than the lack of all-nighters. (I try not to bring this up in conversation around my sister, because it makes her want to kill me.) The latest I remember ever having to stay up is maybe 1:00a or so, when I had a research paper for an English class I had to turn in online (which I think was during my first year, when I was still in a bit of a procrastinating mode). The only way this was physically possible [for me, at least, there are superhumans out there who can do more, lol] was that while I was going to school, I never took more than 14 hours in a semester, I never worked, and I never joined any extracurricular activities. (I had a semester in my second year where I took a printmaking class, an upper division writing class, and an art history, and I literally did nothing but homework before classes, between classes, and after classes, to the point where my week-long Thanksgiving break I didn't have time to do anything but work on an essay and go to the printmaking lab. But I always got enough sleep.) As I said, I think there are superhumans who achieve the same grades while doing more class hours and working, among other things, but I tend to be set to a certain speed...I just have to put a lot of time into things before I feel like I can show them.

2. I really don't like spicy food...it doesn't matter how mild it is, I just don't like how it tastes. (And it makes my nose run. X3) The first thing I ask when I go to an Asian or a Mexican restaurant is, 'Is it spicy?'

3. I didn't study much of it in college, but I realized sometime in high school that I have a love for old works of literature. I read (well, listened, because I mainly do audiobooks) Moby Dick, Don Quixote, Jane Eyre, Uncle Tom's Cabin, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Frankenstein, many of the Jane Austen novels, Tarzan (is that literature? it's old and famous anyway, lol), Crime and Punishment, and possibly some others I'm not thinking of, on my own time outside of school, and sometimes when I finish reading a work, I like to go online and look at essays and interpretations of the works. If I chose a favorite, it would probably be Uncle Tom's Cabin—it's been called 'political propaganda', which it is, but it's so incredibly well thought out and emotionally powerful (and the arguments are so sound) that I would put it in more modern terms of being a work to create social awareness.

Moby Dick, on the other hand...gosh, I know there are critics out there who love this work, and I guess there is a lot of beauty about the subtlety of the devices the author uses, but all in all, I think this is a work of literature for high literary critics and not for the lay reader. I think when we're kids we all have an image of 'boring literature,' which is ridiculously long books written in poetic, archaic language that's hard to understand, and goes off on endless tangents that only vaguely relate to the plot—I know I had that picture when I was a kid, and it wasn't until high school when I started reading books like Scarlet Letter and works by Alexander Dumas that I realized 'literature' could just be normal books that are very enjoyable to read just for themselves. But Moby Dick...I think Moby Dick is basically the epitome of what we think of when we picture 'long, boring literature.' X3 (Entire chapters spent on whale genealogies and the color white, I'm telling you.) There were a lot of very interesting aspects of Moby Dick (the author was a whaler himself, and so knows the details of the practice intimately, and some parts are very intriguing, once you get past the horror of the practice itself), and I was very interested in the character of Ahab. But honestly, I would have hated having to read this book for school—if you do have to read it for school, hopefully the teacher will allow you to read an abridged version. (I don't generally believe in choosing to read abridged books over the original, but in the case of Moby Dick, I would be willing to make an exception.)



So, who's next? (:
