Fun with Truth and Lies polls - the standard used in the RPGGeek of the Week threads is: Two Truths and One Lie, but if you have a good idea for other combinations, go ahead. In my opinion, a good part of the appeal of the thing is that there are actually truths in there about you, so six lies and one truth seems a bit boring to me. But maybe others have different tastes, so...

To create a poll, start a post in a forum (e.g. Testing Forum). You don't have to publish the forum post, just copy the poll code [poll=xxxxxxxxx] into your geeklist entry.
One geeklist entry per poll, please. It's okay to come back and create a second poll at a later time.
Don't let polls run indefinitely - one or two weeks should be fine.
Reveal the solution to your poll afterwards! (Don't reveal others' solutions while their polls are running.)

The Geek? Yes, it's a good site. But - ah! You should have seen it before the rebranding! It was legible and a joy to read! All gone now, sadly, and so (mostly) am I because of it ...

I'm sorry, I cannot read this site regularly while the intense white background is in effect. I have eye health issues, and this is painful. I'll still make brief visits, largely for trades and rules questions, but my socializing here is done for now

I thought I'd post another one, this time game related, and with a much shorter duration. This one expires 10/4, I think.

I'm actually mostly just bumping this on the front page, hoping it will encourage others to post something, as I enjoy answering these!

Edit: and, oops! Typo in the poll. "... in unplugged" should be simply "unplugged."

I was born in the Soviet Union in 70s. It was a wonderful and strange and scary place to be. The level of strangeness was defined not only by things that were present there, but also to a significant degree by things that were absent. This poll is about toys, and music records, and sweets - and all the things that we did not have in the USSR.
