Tran... I vote #1. People up here aren't political enough that you would have to impress them by joining a party ;)

Me again, eh? I'm really running out of ideas...


1. I once joined a political party for the sole purpose of impressing a girl.

2. I became a Planner by accident.

3. I share the same birthday as Admiral "Kiss me, Hardy" Nelson.

Number 1 is the lie, most people are planners by accident, and who would lie about #3? :)

I'm with TP, I joined a political party for a girl.

But on topic, I'll say #3.

Mastiff wins...

I actually wanted to be a planner when I grew up. Strange, but true.

In first year university, I joined the "Young Conservatives", because a girl I really liked was a member, and she was trying to get others to join up. My plan didn't work - she ended up going out with my roommate instead.

Alrighty...

#1 - I was arrested and convicted of carrying a concealed weapon.

#2 - I am a member of RACES, an amatuer radio emergency group, and have had my ham license since 1989.

#3 - I spent time as a youth in Colombia with my parents, who were on a missionary assignment.

I'll bite on #1 - you were arrested but weren't convicted.

I am guessing #2. You do have your ham license (mmmm... ham...) but did not get it in 1989.

I know that was way too easy. Although we've known each other for almost 3 years, we haven't been dating long enough to warrant an official engagement. However, that may change during the course of this year.

Hmmm...

A very tough one. I will vote #3.

I was going there at first... But then I thought, "No... bTurk could have been the hazee, not the hazer..." And if you're in a fraternity, you probably are an underage drinker... an "illegal drug". So, by this improbable and convoluted logic, I say #1.

bTurk can't carry a tune in a bucket.

#1 is true. Although I was never very good at any of them.

#2 is also true - and for clarification Mastiff - underage drinking is illegal consuption of a legal drug. Trumped ya there.

#3 is false. My stories of near expulsion ring true, however. ;)

Mike's turn!

I'm going with #3. I bet it's some other kind of Subaru.

And Giff takes home the prize!

No, I have not patented an internet birdhouse. It is still in the development stage.

What on earth is an "Internet-ready birdhouse"?

Are the starlings and finches demanding DSL now??

We've trained chickens to play tic-tac-toe, so why can't a finch surf the web?

Actually, it works the other way around, as sort of a web "nest cam" for bird watchers. The idea came from a stunt on Wisconsin's PBS stations, where they suspended a camera over an eagle's nest. I still have a lot of technical issues to work out, though.

Hmmm...

Well, the lens is pointing down, and it can be removed from the outside so that it can be cleaned...

Planderella wins!

1. It's Rineyville Ky

2. The folks were members of the Retreads, a club for older bikers.

3. My name was actually on the list, but the only showed the list down to the d's so mine didn't make it. I was a member of a XFiles BB and everyone was asked to their names to FOX. Several of the producers were also members of the board.

I WAS holding out for a few more guesses, but you're right nerudite. I dyed my hair honey blond when I was in high school. Thank goodness I still have hair to talk about these days. BTW, I'm rated at 2.5 but slowly moving up that scale.

Ok, i want to go again. Two truths and a lie:

1. Every year, on the last day of school at my high school alma mater, you can find about 20 full size tractors on the school's front lawn, driven there by the local farm kids.

2. My sister and I will do almost anything on a dare for money - for a quarter, she asked my mother if my grandmother was using condoms when having sex with her boyfriend, and for $5 I ate a dead moth found on my friend's front lawn.

3. In college, instead of playing Century Club, my friends and I would drink a gallon of water and who ever went to the bathroom first would have to buy all the drinks at the bar that night.

I have to say #2...the grandmother thing is too over the top!
