I'll pick 3, and aren't we supposed to wait on the prior one to finish first?

Yeah, but if she is at lunch, we can't go more than 2-3 minutes without a post.

1. Upon getting my commission in the Army, I was assigned to the 12th Special Forces (Green Berets).

True, although I quickly transferred to a more relaxed unit.

3. The U.S. Marshalls in South Dakota have issued a warrant for my arrest (yeah, I'm a bad boy).

True, although the notice accompanying the warrant for failure to pay a traffic citation had a copy of the receipt showing payment attached to it.

2. Like Frodo from the Lord of The Rings, I have nine fingers, having lost (part of) one to a table saw.

Like Norm Abrams, my best-known pupil, I still have all of my fingers.

I believe bturk is the winner.

Sorry I said I wanted to jump onstage and punch your cousin.

I'll change my "who would you punch" answer to Pink. (She'd kick the sh*t out of me though)

OK - we'll come back to Planderella when she returns from lunch - I'll go again:

1. I have collected vintage Volkswagens, at one time having a 1972 Beetle, a 1972 Superbeetle, a 1961 Karmann Ghia, and a 1962 Beetle.

2. After blowing out a knee in the university quad playing 'chicken' after bar time, I was removed from the X Ray technician's lab after accussing him of being "Dr. Shrinker"

3. I have a nipple pierced.

This is true. I am a member of the Vintage Volkswagen Club of America, and enjoy project restorations, although I have none at this time.

This is true, and my pockets were loaded with chicklets from a broken candy machine in the bar. In my wild accusations of the x ray tech, the chicklets spilled all over the lab.

This is not true. They are both peirced.

Mike wins.

I'll put mine out there, and chack back in 10....I got something to do.

1. I had dinner with David Akers (Eagles kicker) last night.

2. I don't drink because of a near-death experience.

3. I played professional soccer (Philadelphia Kixx) for 2 years after college.

This is bad - does my winning mean that I have to go again?

1. Three of my brothers are identical twins.
2. I am looking for a new job.
3. I love Thai food.

Well then, I'll go too..

1. I have never been arrested.
2. I called my parents back in the States after news that Pan Am flight 103 had crashed near Lockerbie Scotland to tell them I missed my flight and was not dead.
3. I have been in two (minor) airplane crashes since and five near death experiences involving foreigners and their guns and ammo.

All right....since I do have to go do some work...

Nobody got mine....

I did have dinner with Akers last night, as well as Darwin Walker and Hank Fraley.


I stopped drinking after I was nearly killed in a fire, that I shouldn't have been in, but went in because I had a little too much to drink.

While I did play soccer until I was done high school, never did it professionally....that was a lie.

1. I was once asked to leave a place called England and placed back upon on the ferry that brought me from Holland after a short fist fight with a customs official - which he lost and then his friends took over and I lost. And the clue was here: http://www.cyburbia.org/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=1060&highlight=british+customs
2. True - I was going to fly back to the states but we got a flat tire on the way to Frankfurt. We got back to Mannheim to hear about it on the radio. The Major knew I was supposed to be on that flight. They thought I was kaput.
3. True - If the plane leaves the runway and needs repair after the landing it counts as a crash (I was the right seat both times). Them pesky foreigners tried to kill me in several locations world wide.

Thank you all for humoring me.... :)


Okay, here are my three:

1) I was shoved by Courtney Love into a wood roof support after she spied me kissing her then beau, Billy Corgan.

2) While spending the night in the middle of the Sahara desert, a bunch of Aussies and Kiwis drunk on palm date liquor nearly auctioned me off to a local for two camels.

3) I was a regular tap-dancer on Romper Room.

You are too good!

#2 was a lie... although a small one. Bidding only got to a donkey and an old horse before our tour guide figured out what was going on and called the whole thing off (thank goodness!)...
