Who wants to play a game? A Game of Lie-To-Me (h/t to the Artist-Formerly-Known-As-DeeperBlue)

Since the thread is getting a little unwieldy in the old post and folks are dropping off a bit, I've decided to give it a fresh start in a new thread!

Quoted directly from our patron saint of chaos, the Artist-Formerly-Known-As-DeeperBlue, (@Eris_Goddess_of_Discord)

But it's only a couple of weeks till Christmas so tis the time for games, and I promise this one is very friendly and low commitment! No dressing up or food products required.

While half of you go look for the 'Mute' function let me explain the game to the rest of you.

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. 

Having been directly deputized by @Eris_Goddess_of_Discord and taking my sacred lying duties seriously, so here's mine.

1. I was a top twenty ranking StarCraft player in North America, high enough ranked that I seriously considered deferring university to go try my luck playing the game professionally in South Korea.  I only stopped when I realized that my fast twitch reflexes were going at the age of 18.  They called me Ace of Blades.

2. During the financial crisis, I left my first job out of college in Boston (management consultant) to raise and deploy a distressed debt fund specifically focused on bailing out small to mid sized manufacturing companies who ran into working capital problems after GE Capital failed.  They called me the Copley Reaper.

3. When I was twenty, I ended up talking my way to a vodka tasting in a steak aging room in New York City with someone that I eventually learned was the most well connected mafioso in St. Petersburg.  He called me "moy kitayskiy drug" which I  believe translates to "My Chinese Friend."

My parents would have sent me to Jesus if I tried something like number one 😂 I'm not even sure I'm kidding... so I'm gonna say that isn't true.

It is hard to list "Reasons why I almost didn't go to college" on a one page vitae.

Believe me, when I was 18, I was leading the charge of idiots personally 😂

But my mother would only tolerate that as long as school works out... and that woman was raised by my grandma who would make your mobster buddy in the steak room look like a cuddly Teddy sliding down a rainbow 😏

3 is a lie 

·

First vote for number 3!  I wonder what about that story makes it seem so truthful?

·

Well, I confess to not getting that gamer nickname, it doesn’t really lend itself to an elite Starcraft player.  
But My rationale for voting for 2 is that I‘m powerfully willing 1 and 3 into being true and you believing they are true.
So staying with unglamorous (for my simple brain) 2 being the lie.  😃

Crap, the pic in your bio is a JLC… my pick makes even less sense

Impeccable logic!  Were we all that logical!

Oh, I'm so very interested in the logic here.  How does a JLC inform your choices one way or another? 😉🤣😉🤣😉
