    Simple game..

    Post two things that are true about you, and one that is a lie. People have to guess which is the lie. I will start

    1. I won $37,000 on Jeopardy

    2. I went to school with Mel Gibson

    3. My ancestor witnessed Lincoln being shot


    Rep whoever guesses correctly

    1. One of my ancestors graduated first in his class at West Point, fought beside Lee in Mexico and was wounded leading two Brigades at 2nd Battle of Bull Run

    2. My father retired after 22 years in the Army

    3. I ran an 18 minute 3 mile in Boot Camp

    You're in New Jersey... Gibson was born in New York and didn't move to Australia until '68... I had ancestors on the Mayflower so I see no reason you could not have had an ancestor who witnessed Lincoln's assasination... My dad was on Jeopardy, though he lost, so you making an appearance on the show is not out of the question... However, Dad was a very intelligent man who was also a font of knowledge and trivia yet he was unable to pull out any cash...

    I say you are lying about winning $37,000 on Jeopardy.

    1. I used to own an extensive collection of frog knick knacks.

    2. A dog saved my life.

    3. I am waiting for the statute of limitations to run on my last crime.

    I do not believe rightwinger's ancestor saw Lincoln getting shot, nor do I believe RetiredGySgt's only ran a 18 minute mile. Seems kinda slow for him.
