So today marks the start of TEST Huddle’s birthday celebrations. We are celebrating our birthday though by giving you the presents but you have to do something for it…
This is a True Or False Thread. It’s very simple.
State one fact 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 want to guess if others statements are true or not, please do.April 7, 2015 at 9:29 am #7499
I’ll kick us off:
As a child I had an operation to remove cartilage from my thumb because it was locked in a thumbs-up position.April 7, 2015 at 10:07 am #7502Craig MarrParticipant@craig-marr
I once beat Robert Downey Jr. in an Iron Man look-alike competition.April 7, 2015 at 10:09 am #7503NeilParticipant@neil
My best True Or False was already featured in the EuroSTAR 2014 – A Year In Review eBook, so I’ll have to come up with a new one!
True or False: As a teenager I was a budding scriptwriter, and submitted several sample scripts to the writers of Friends.April 7, 2015 at 10:59 am #7506NicholasParticipant@shicky
I’m going to guess false for Ronan and Craig. True for Neil!
Since I’m feeling the festive mood I’ll give three, only one is true:
1) I have a scar due to being bitten by a two-legged dog.
2) While engaged in the act of love, an international rugby player jumped out of a nearby wardrobe.
3) While living abroad I was an extremely popular individual and confused for being famous as I claimed I was a professional footballer.April 7, 2015 at 2:02 pm #7525CamalParticipant@camal
when I enter a bar I always order this list:
Chéers!April 7, 2015 at 2:10 pm #7526NicholaParticipant@nichola1
😀April 7, 2015 at 3:06 pm #7528NeilParticipant@neil
OK, I’ll take a shot at these…
Ronan – TRUE
Craig – FALSE
Nicholas – I guess that #1 is true?
Camal – I hope you’re not also testing payment integration when you’re ordering 999999999 beers!April 7, 2015 at 3:48 pm #7535
I’m going to take Nicholas’ lead and give 3 but I won’t say how many are true/false:-
a) As a toddler, I had a tantrum which involved me throwing my Tonka digger through my bedroom door and making a big hole in it.
b) I never made it to a Kings of Leon concert, as I was involved in a car crash on the motorway on the way back from my best friend’s Dad’s funeral.
c) At University I went on a “rebel” tour of Amsterdam, in which we were banned from playing football by the University Dean, following previous reports from an opposition University that we had turned up drunk for a match.
I’ll go for:
Ronan, Craig & Neil all true.
Nicholas 3) (I think 2 is just a weird fantasy)
Camal – it has to be “a dog”.April 7, 2015 at 3:51 pm #7536PaulParticipant@paul-madden
I’ll take a punt on:
Ronan – true (the thumb ocassionally pops up in the office)
Craig – false, you look nothing like Iron Man (from your avatar)
Neil – true (studied as a journalist if I remember correctly)
Camal – I’ll sit on the fence for this one…
What about this:
I had my home searched by the US Secret Service…..April 7, 2015 at 4:55 pm #7540
I had a trial with Liverpool FC at the age of 14. Kenny Dalglish was the manager at the time, and he had to choose between signing me or Steve McManaman…April 7, 2015 at 7:37 pm #7541ChristianParticipant@aristestle
this sounds like fun 🙂
One of these is wrong:
a) Before I became a software tester, I was a professional mattress tester.
b) I cannot smell.
c) There are more programming languages than human languages on my CV.April 8, 2015 at 5:39 am #7545JamesParticipant@james
My uncle Jim played the bass in Slade.April 8, 2015 at 7:32 am #7546
At my first testing job I had a huge communal laundry grade washing machine with additional dryer standing by my desk for testing purposes.April 8, 2015 at 9:07 am #7549
Paul – I’m going true.
Steve – true – King Kenny made the wrong decision and we would definitely have got more sense from you as a pundit on BT Sport. YNWA – get Stevie G to Wembley on his birthday!
Christian – tough one – I’m going for c).
James – Would that be Uncle Jim Lea? Bet I know what gets played at Christmas in your house 😉
Magnus – Would like to think that is true.April 8, 2015 at 11:07 am #7565April 8, 2015 at 11:55 am #7571PaulParticipant@paul-maddenApril 8, 2015 at 12:55 pm #7573
nice and interesting thread in here.
well here goes mine:
I went bungee jumping in the Himalayas at 19.April 8, 2015 at 1:20 pm #7574April 8, 2015 at 1:54 pm #7575April 8, 2015 at 3:10 pm #7580
@Hannah That it’s trueApril 8, 2015 at 4:04 pm #7581
Any other? I will give the answer later. Want to know others take 😉April 9, 2015 at 7:52 am #7596Craig MarrParticipant@craig-marr
Mine was false. There is some truth in it though, RDJ did come second in an Iron Man look-alike contest.April 9, 2015 at 8:15 am #7597
ok..so mine is false 😉 😛April 9, 2015 at 8:54 am #7598
Mine was true, however, the washer and dryer was not connected to water or drainage, ending the posibility to do laundry at work :/April 9, 2015 at 9:09 am #7599
Mine was false, unfortunately for me…it did happen to a friend of mine though, so I pinched the story from him! 😉April 9, 2015 at 3:00 pm #7613
All of mine were true by the way!!!April 9, 2015 at 4:16 pm #7618April 9, 2015 at 4:51 pm #7620
Wow, thank you!
This makes up for my failed career as a Premier League footballer!! 😆April 9, 2015 at 6:56 pm #7624ChristianParticipant@aristestle
that’s a worthy choice I think 🙂 Congratulations, Steve.
(PS c was wrong)
