I thought this might be a fun way to learn a bit more about each other. You probably know this game, but just in case you don't:

Share two true/interesting facts about yourself and one that is a lie. It's up to the rest of us to guess which one is the lie!

I'll give it a go!

1 I had brain surgery, before which I asked the surgeon half-jokingly to give me any cyborg implants he had lying around.
2 I was asked to leave a ghost hunt with the Tennessee Wraith Chasers because I was making fun of them.
3 On a trip to Washington, D.C., I accidentally wondered into a restricted area near the Capitol building and was briefly detained by Capitol police.

Edit: Added a poll

Ok, here goes!

Poll
Which one of the following is a lie?
While I was a ballboy at the Legends Cup Tennis Tournament held in TED Club, Istanbul, Wimbledon winner Pat Cash fell over me on live TV, during the change called me over to his bench and gave me his headband, signed.
In 2011 while I was on holiday in New Zealand, I had the chance to be one of the hobbit extras in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, appearing very briefly in the back of Bilbo when he was searching for Gandalf in the Shire.
While sailing on a 2-person catamaran during a storm, first the fore stay then the mast broke in half. Me and my friend held the front sail with our hands in order to steer the catamaran away from the rocky shore while we waited for a rescue boat.

So I will give it a go

Poll
Two Truths and a Lie, which is which
I was stopped in security at an airport due to a statue in my hand luggage holding a metal spear. It was packed in a shoe box, taped well together. I had 20 minutes to reach my connecting flight, but we had to open the box so they could examine the spear.
The bus I was sitting in was hit from behind by a trailer on Friday 13th of December. The very next day, my mum and I were out driving, and a car skidded on the ice, and crash into the railing of the bridge we were crossing, right in front of our car.
Once, when I was 17 years old, I was asked to drive my dad`s car from our house to our cabin an hour away, since my dad wanted to take a nap. This was despite the fact that I didn`t have a licence yet. We got two thirds of the way when cops on a routine speed check stopped us. I managed to wake my dad before they realised he was sleeping.

Naw, I think Gabe did get detained. It’s very easy to upset Capitol police.

You can reveal it whenever you'd like. I decided to give it a day or two, but you could wait longer or reveal sooner.

My lie was being detained at the Capitol! I did wander into an area that I shouldn't have been in, but some Capitol staff very politely helped me find my way back to an area that was open to the public.

Of course this was a lie. Who in their right mind would let their daughter drive their car without supervision?!
AND we bought the cabin later. So it was a double lie.

It looked like number 2 would be your answer about the lie, but that ACTUALLY happened!blush

In middle school -- having no confidence in my athletic ability/lack thereof -- I jokingly bet my friend Zachary that I couldn't hit this girl Raven with a dodgeball. We were in gym, and she was just about as far away from me as you could possibly get. It was a weird thing to bet about, and I don't know where it even came from, but Zach laughed and went with it. Nonchalantly, I drop kicked this yellow dodgeball. I couldn't have kicked it more perfectly if I tried. It sailed across the gym in a beautiful arc and smacked her right in the side of the head. I think she may have even fallen over. She was okay though. I felt terrrrible, but I chuckle looking back at it. It's almost like Larry David wrote that moment of my life.

When I was a high school senior, we went to Cincinatti for a week for our senior trip. One night, we watched a Reds game. We sat in center field. The Reds were playing the Dodgers, and Matt Kemp was the Dodgers center fielder at the time. Some of us thought it would be fun to heckle him, so we started hurling the lamest insults we could think of. My personal favorite was "Kemp still uses dial-up!" We went at him for a long time. Initially, he ignored us. Eventually he would turn around and just shake his head at us. As an inning came to an end, he turned around and said something to us and pointed. I couldn't hear what he said. Meanwhile, the Reds pitcher loaded the bases, and Kemp was up to bat. One of the teachers/chaperones was a massive Dodgers fan, and I remember him remarking "I hope he hits a grand slam right to you guys." CRACK. He did it. The ball flew right over my head. We even ended up on Sports Center later that night after the game.

My younger cousin is almost like a sister to me. My mom was her babysitter for years when we were growing up, so we were always together. One day over summer vacation, I went to her house to play Power Rangers: Lightspeed Rescue on the PlayStation. My aunt had to run a few errands, so she left us to ourselves with really only one rule: "Don't jump on the trampoline." The trampoline was left uncovered and apparently started to dry rot, so they weren't sure if it could take any jumping. But of course, not long after she left, we decided it would be really smart to jump on the trampoline. Initially, everything went really well. I didn't notice anything abnormal about how the trampoline felt outside of it being a bit noisier than normal. My cousin always like it when I would time the jumps so that she would get bounced high into the air when I came down, so I started doing that. Suddenly, I come down and hear "POP!" I landed flat on my butt as the trampoline broke underneath me. Of course, my cousin was still several feet in the air, now with nothing to land on except the hard ground, a bunch of metal, and well, me. I remember it seemed like she was 100 feet in the air and fell for a long time before she hit the ground. As luck would have it, she landed in probably the best way. Part of the trampoline was still standing, so she hit that first and then sort of rolled onto my legs. She was fine. I think we were both in shock though, and in that moment much more concerned with what my aunt was going to do when she saw the broken trampoline in the yard. As if on cue, she pulled into the driveway maybe 2-3 minutes after all of that. She was not happy. Ironically, I fractured my tailbone when I fell. The pain started to set in after the initial shock wore off. The trip to the emergency room spared us any real punishment beyond not being able to play with each other for a couple of weeks. I suppose she thought we -- or I suppose I -- suffered enough.

Lie reveal:

Spoiler (click to reveal)
The lie was actually the third option! It was based in reality, however. We did jump on the trampoline after being explicitly told not to, but we were out there for maybe 5 minutes before my aunt pulled in to the driveway, furious.
