    Pants on Fire

    A few years ago, our forum had a game like this, but I can't find it, so I thought I'd start another one.

    The game goes as follows: A player lists three statements about himself or herself. Two are true, but one is a lie. The other players try to figure out which statement is the lie. The first person to detect the lie becomes "it" and lists three statements about him- or herself.

    See if you can figure out which of these statements about me is a lie:

    1. I shot off a rattlesnake's head in my backyard.
    2. I fell off the roof of my high-school gym and broke my leg.
    3. I met with armed revolutionaries in South America.

    ETA: Since I launched this game a few days ago, it has become clear that waiting for the OP to answer and say whether you are correct takes too long. Therefore, we have loosened the rules considerably. ANYONE can play at ANY TIME. Also, there is also no need for you to become "it," if you don't have the time or the inclination to do so. For example, if you think one of my statements is a lie, you can just say so and move on. Similarly, if you want to post your own truths-and-a-lie, you can do so at any time, even if other posts are pending.

    I hope the above is at least slightly clearer than mud.
