Twenty “Truths”

I saw a variation of this one someone’s site. I forget who. Anyway, there are 15 true statements below, and five false ones.

  1. I am a member of Mensa.

  2. I am divorced.

  3. I am related to a former Governor-General of Barbados.

  4. I have been to the DMZ.

  5. I knew Biggie Smalls before he was famous.

  6. I am Catholic.

  7. I have had dinner with Barbara Bush.

  8. I was on the fencing team in high school.

  9. I lost a tooth playing football.

  10. I wore an eye patch as a child to correct a vision problem.

  11. I once performed in Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey circus.

  12. I went to school with former basketball player Mark Jackson.

  13. I have a stepsister.

  14. I escaped from Manhattan by boat on 9/11.

  15. I have shot a member of my family.

  16. I started a race riot at a day camp.

  17. I am a Democrat.

  18. My family is from Panama.

  19. I was deployed to Cuba as part of operation Enduring Freedom.

  20. I graduated from MIT.

Can you guess which statements are false?

I've literally known you for about a minute, but I'll take a stab at this. Since it'll only be guessing. Here goes. The 5 false statements are:

#'s 2,6,9,11,14 - Okay, how'd I do?

Michelle Pessoa said...

Hi, Luke!

Four of those statements you flagged are TRUE! ;)

Luke Cage said...

Whoa!!! I count that as a victory. I got one right... um.. which one? -lol- I bet it's 11 right?

Michelle Pessoa said...

I can't tell you yet. I want some more people to guess, especially my Star Wars peeps. :)

JamaicanQueen said...

Hey you visited my site so now I'm at yours.

Hmmmm.....I would have to guess....

1- I have no idea why I would guess that one.

14- Because no one got out of Manhattan by boat on that day. And you live in Brooklyn, (I believe) so if you were there then you ran like everyone else.

I am tossed up between 3 and 18 because they kinda contradict.

4- Cause I have no idea what that is.

And for the last one um....I think number 2- I just don't think you have been divorced.

Michelle Pessoa said...

Hi Jamaican Queen!

Five of the six statements you flagged are TRUE!

I guess I don't sound divorced, huh? ;)

Jon the Intergalactic Gladiator said...

They're all probably true...

flu said...

ooooo, a t/f meme! I'm in!

uh... 5 of these are false? Sheesh, you write a toughy... ok...

3. sounds pretty far out there...
5. I never heard of him, therefore - not famous.
8. there might be some vocational class that teaches the art of putting up a fence, but they don't have teams, shuh!
10. what would the odds have to be condsidering your other blog?
14. cause Luke got one, and that was one he picked, and the jamaican queen sounds sure of that one, and I haven't a clue.

So, 3, 5, 8, 10, 14.

How'd I do?

Kathleen Hite Babb said...

I'd guess, knowing very little about you, that they're 11, 12, 15, 18---and I can't decide between 8 & 9. If I had to chose, I'd say it's more likely 8 than 9. Why? Because not many high schools have fencing teams. (But then, things might have changed since I was in high school :)

I am looking forward to learning which ones are false! Thanks for sharing this.

Shannon said...

Another cool meme!! OK, I'm trying to play the odds based on what others have already gotten wrong. Here's my guess:

5, 8, 13, 14, 15

Michelle Pessoa said...

Fluke! Four of the five statements you picked are TRUE!

Michelle Pessoa said...

Neko! Four of the five statements you picked are TRUE!

I'm sensing a pattern here. ;

Michelle Pessoa said...

Senator Amidala! Four of the five statements you picked are TRUE!

Yep, there's definitely a pattern here!

Michelle Pessoa said...

Jon, you are very shrewd. Some of the lies have partial truths buried within. :)

General Grievous said...

9, 11, 15, 16, 14

Michelle Pessoa said...

General Grievous! The pattern holds -- four of the five statements you picked are true.

mar said...

My wild guess: false are
Michele sent me today.

I know that number 7 is a non-truth. The apple don't fall far from the tree: If George Dubya ain't gonna have lunch witcha', Momma Bush sure didn't. (I'll feel like such an ass if i'm wrong.)

I will gander a guess on the remaining 4: #5, #11, #15, #8.

I saw one of the 4 Poser images you created because the other 3 didn't show for some reason. I saw the top link. Loved her, especially the lips! Poser and Daz3d, plus other sites have really made some start posering again, I think you'll love how easy it is now.
I would love to share creative exchanges with a fellow Poser artist.
Thanks for your visit and i'm linkin' ya.

Michelle Pessoa said...

Hello Mar and Cheryl! It's uncanny how every person has gotten exactly one right!

I'm going to keep this going until about 3 p.m., then I'll post the shocking answers.

Cheryl, I'm so happy to find another Poser person! I've been able to find enough elements from various vendors to put together renders that actually look like real black people, but damn, it was hard. LOL! I haven't found any good dreads yet, though. They all suck.

I'll be linking to you and posting a lot more Poser stuff, now that you have inspired me. :)

Luke Cage said...

3 PM??? Daaag man. I'm saying though! -lol

Master Yoda said...

I've concluded from previous answers that 8 and 9 are false.

If that's the case, 14 must be true.

...Unless 14 is false, in which case both 8 and 9 must be true.

If my theory is correct, then the other three or four lies must be among the following four choices:

My head hurts now.

utenzi said...

Talk about test anxiety!

Michele sent me to see Michelle. That's a bit confusing all by itself.

Okay, here's my attempt, Michelle:

4, 5, 7, 13, 19.

Michelle Pessoa said...

Master Yoda, you and your intern disappoint me! You didn't actually put down what your five guesses were!

Utenzi, you also have one correct guess!

dena said...

I'm going to go with 2, 11, 14, 19 and 20. No matter what the outcome, you sound very interesting. You'll have to give us more details on a few of these.

I'm visiting from michele's today.

Shannon said...

I agree, you will definitely need to blog about a few of these truths. Can I guess again? How about:

8, 9, 12, 19, 20

The suspense is killing me! I'm totally gonna do this on my blog!
