Lie To Me - The slightly weird edition

This one is called 'Lie to me'.

I basically tell you three facts about me. Two are true, one is a lie. First person to spot the lie then gives 2 truths and 1 lie about themselves and the rest of us to have a go at spotting the lie again and we just keep going until we get bored or decide we know more about eachother than we are comfortable with. Can be watch related or not.

EDIT: Actually, instead of the first person to get it right being the next to go I think whoever set the three facts gets to choose the next to go out of all those who gave correct answers. E.g. I get to choose who goes next from those who spot my lie.

It’s fun guessing other people’s truths and lies but not so much when it’s your turn. I’m not apologising for taking my time on my turn….

One lie often leads to another, so…

  1. All the male descendants in my dad’s village are called Chung. It’s not as confusing as it first sounds. In Chinese culture, your family/surname normally appears first, followed by your forenames. You’re usually called by your forename. If you have two, then you’re known by the second one. Luckily, we all have different second forenames. Unluckily, in Western culture, the surname goes to the end and the name we are known by, is relegated to the ‘middle’. So, we are all known as ‘Chung’. The Chinese are strange but not as strange as…
  2. It’s Chinese tradition to ‘bless’ a premises to remove ‘evil’ spirits and other such hocum. When my aunt and uncle were first married, they moved into their new apartment and decided to forego the tradition. Soon after, my aunt would sleepwalk in the middle of the night. Nothing too weird and my uncle let it slide. One night my uncle got up to get a drink of water and discovered my sleepwalking  aunt on the dining room table with a makeshift noose hanging from the light. He quickly grabbed her and she ‘woke’ up not knowing what had happened. They got a monk in soon after to ‘bless’ the house. The sleepwalking didn’t happen again. For the record I don’t believe in the supernatural but that will become apparent when I tell you about the fact that…
  3. I don’t believe in God or Gods but I certainly don’t wish any ill feeling to those who do. Whatever brings you comfort in this world, then do or believe that (as long as it doesn’t harm others, of course). Jehovah’s Witnesses often stop me in the street and engage me (must be my face or something). I consider it one of my crowning achievements in this world, in converting one such JW into questioning their beliefs. I only asked for proof. It‘s a great feeling seeing ‘the penny drop’ in their eyes. If you think I’m not applying the second sentence in this paragraph, I didn’t approach them, they came up to me….

Now go find that lie, Crunchers…

I'm going to say 3 only because all the JW's I've met (honestly most really religious people) aren't going to change their mind. 

·

Yup 3 it is. I bet they get asked the same thing every day of the week by someone.

·

2 is the lie! they live in an apartment and the monk blessed a house!

It wouldn’t be as funny if it wasn’t so true….

Not the way I ask them…😉

I'm not gonna guess - since I'm Chinese too, I already know which are the truths and the lie!

One time, my aunt was talking to my sister about the old country, and she said, "Yeah, there were lots of ghosts in China.  I could used to see them roaming around the house.  But, here, in America, there aren't any ghosts.  The lightbulbs are so strong, it's too bright here for them."

Now I’m seriously thinking about editing the post…. but as usual, my laziness wins.

I‘m seriously impressed by your thinking, though…

Apologies! I will say 3 Hail Marys as penance…

·

I’m going with #1 as the lie.  The “if you have a second forename” and everyone ”fortunately” having different second forenames assumes that all DO have a second forename which contradicts the earlier “if”. 
 

Sorry for how my brain works.

Did you hear about ‘no feet’ thing? Apparently ‘they’ have no feet and idle along next to walls AND if you sleep with your feet out of the covers, ’they’re’ attracted to them. I mean it’s hard to know where to even start with that one….f@ck me…

Ah, using the vehicles of semantics and grammar on the path to the truth (or lie).

I will leave you all at the T-junction of uncertainty for a few hours yet…
