    As we are marking the birthday of TEST Huddle..again, we thought we would bring back the True or False Thread. Like last year, we are celebrating by giving you the present.

    The rules are simple:.
    State one, two or three statements about yourself below. It can be true or false. We will pick out our favourites and the winners will receive an Amazon Voucher. We may even have multiple winners depending on entries.

    Obviously the crazier the statement the better and if it’s the truth, well that might be even better!

    If you would like to guess if others statements are true or not, please do too.

    I’ll kick it off.

    I once turned up at the airport for a weekend break on the wrong Friday and missed my holiday!

    So that Ronan wouldn’t feel too lonely here 🙂 – these are my 3 statements:
    1. When I was in 7th grade I had to stay in detention for a week as a punishment for refusing to represent the school in the regional mathematics olympiad.
    2. During an island hopping trip in the Philippines, I survived sailing through a typhoon.
    3. I’ve been strip-searched by a male officer (I’m female, so isn’t this illegal?) during a street rave festival, because they suspected that I was a drug dealer. Which I obviously wasn’t.

    Hi @kerli125,

    I’m going to have a go at distinguishing the truth from the lies in your comments.

    1. When I was in 7th grade I had to stay in detention for a week as a punishment for refusing to represent the school in the regional mathematics olympiad. – TRUE
    2. During an island hopping trip in the Philippines, I survived sailing through a typhoon. – FALSE
    3. I’ve been strip-searched by a male officer (I’m female, so isn’t this illegal?) during a street rave festival, because they suspected that I was a drug dealer. Which I obviously wasn’t. – TRUE

    How did I do?

    Here’s my three:
    1. I prefer cats to dogs
    2. I grew up in Sweden
    3. My favourite sport is Rugby.

    Daragh, I’m guessing:
    1. I prefer cats to dogs True
    2. I grew up in Sweden False
    3. My favourite sport is Rugby. True

    My 3 statements:
    1. I have participated in a Guiness world record try towards most people trying whiskey at the same time
    2. I have a magnificent collection of various victorian garments.
    3. I love honey, even though I am allergic to it. Sometimes I eat it just because it’s so good and accept the consequences.

    As a reply to @daraghm regarding his guesses – you are 100% incorrect. 🙂

    So the correct answers are:
    1. false
    2. true
    3. false

    My wild guess for @emmaconnor
    1. false
    2. false
    3. true

    @danp That is impressive. What sport did you participate in?

    No sport actually. Based on an essay I wrote about how my wife overcame a chronic illness to compete in triathlons, we were selected by the Olympic committee to be two of the torchbearers as the flame wound its way around the country on its way to Utah.
