    Does anyone want to play a game? It's called "2 truths and a lie." I have used this party game many times to break the ice. The way the game is played, I'll go first, Is I will make three statements, one of which is a lie. Then, the next person goes and makes his/her three statements one of which is a lie. We play until everyone goes and makes a guess at each person's "two truths and a lie." After everyone has a turn I reveal which statement is a lie. We score one point for each lie correctly found out. Whoever has the most points wins the game.

    Okay here are my two truths and 1 lie.



    1. I was married twice.



    2. I have been an active scuba diver for many years.


    3. I love the taste of orange juice.


    Now, if there was a person before me I would guess at their "lie." We don't reveal if the "lies" are found out until everyone has a turn. That way everyone has a chance to participate. Then the next person to post goes next with their two truths and a lie plus their guesses on the people before them which was a lie and so on and so on. We play until everyone goes and then we go back and look at everyone's lies. One point for every lie found out. Does that make sense to everyone? Okay, who wants to play?

    Do you think having unlimited cheers cheapens them?

      @TheAiros A bit yes, at the same time I like to cheer people and get some interaction going through cheering. I think that is important, especially now the site is just starting up.

      @TheAiros One of the things about the older version of 43 things which was unique was the formula they used to calculate cheers. So, if anyone remembers we used to cheer bomb each other to gain more and more cheers. I am not sure if we should do that now. I don't think it cheapens the cheers. I t just makes more cheers available to cheer more and more people on the goals they have on their list.

    Are people who identify as a 43Ter also predominately introverts?

    I know I am, although I can be spectacularly extroverted when needed or wanted as I suspect most introverts can. At my core, I am an introvert.

      @TheAiros I think of myself as introverted, but I tend to talk to others well. I grew up in a family of talkers. If I didn't talk I would have been a permanent audience!!!

      @TheAiros Yes, I consider myself to be an introvert. I enjoy spending lots of time alone but occasionally I do get lonely and prefer the company of others. However, I only like to be around people that I truly connect with on some level, otherwise, I feel like I'm wasting my time and would much rather be by myself.

      @TheAiros Yes, I'm an introvert as well. I think a common misconception is that introverts prefer to be alone and don't like social contact, whereas extroverts love social contact all the time. Neither is true in my book. Being introvert I do love social contact, actually I need it, otherwise I get depressed. The thing is just that social contact wears me out quite quickly and I need a longer time to recover. How well I know people contributes to the amount of energy it costs me. Parties where I know nobody except the one organizing it are really the worst energy consumers, whereas an evening with a good friend costs me considerably less energy. Still I need to plan my week so that I don't have three evenings in a row filled with social contact. I really need a day to recover.

      Extroverts are people that generally thrive on social contact and get energy out of it, yet they still can prefer to be alone at times too.

    This may seem like a bit of a question for the girls out here, but boys can answer too.

    What is your favourite hair accessory and why? I'm really enjoying doing my hair, but lacking the ideas to add some nice accessories. I did see some bobbypins with metal leaves that looked really cute, but not much inspiration otherwise. So tell me what do you like best, or maybe you like nothing at all, that is also fine. :)

      @mchuggs Actually, I don't know. I know I had many moments that were really embarrassing at that point, but nothing really stuck with me. I actually also try to remember that I usually forget that it is embarrassing and that helps me to not be too embarrased the moment something happens.

      @jlittle I'm learning to live in the moment, but for most of my life I either lived in the future or the past. It's great to plan for the future and do things to move towards that, and to learn from the past, adjusting so you can be better and more successful in the future. However, to be stuck in either all the time isn't good.

      We should cherish our precious moments because that is what we have right now. I do think about other people's worlds, but no longer as much unless it's something to make the world a better place overall in a win-win type of way.

        @ligemst My place in the world? Hmmm? I would like to think I have accomplished something worthwhile however I am not sure if I have. I tend to agree with ligemst about living each and every day as it is my last, (to paraphrase her) however, I am a procrastinator so what I say looks good on paper not in real form. I will say that I know what I would do if I won the lottery, I would buy a house for my girlfriend and I and open up a non-profit business to give back to the world.

      @jlittle I am currently stuck in reliving some terrible things from my past and junking up the current moment and fogging up the future - but I'm coming back down to earth and a sense of self, and doing much better now.

      @lindsey I would like the power of convincing: I would convince the world to let go of hate and vengeance. I would convince the whole world to just let other people be themselves and be peaceful. I would convince those who have too much to help prop up those who don't. I would convince everyone not to litter or polute. I would convince the world to trust and be trustworthy. I would convince the world that kindness is always a good option and that taking advantage of kindness is among the lowest things a person can do. . . . and if possible I would convince delicious food to not be fattening and instead be very healthy for us. Yes, if I could have one super power that is the power I would like.

      @mchuggs I have accounts with FB, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest. I use Pinterest moderately, when I feel like it and remember, but not interacting with anyone there. I have a public and private FB accounts. I would post regularly on my public FB account where I have around 220 followers. I don't know now since I went on a FB fast since before Thanksgiving last year that I just don't feel like being on FB.

      I feel less stressed NOT being on FB and love being off it. I rarely tweet anymore and haven't in quite a few years. Maybe a few tweets a year. I have an Instagram account, but haven't posted anything to it. I also have some other social media accounts, at least the username, but I don't use them.

      @mchuggs I'm on Facebook, Instagram and Linkedin. Eventhough I only have Linkedin because everyone keeps saying how well that works when you look for a job. Don't really use it, so might as well delete it. Facebook used to be a big part of my life, but I am using it less and less. Don't really like the way it changed, people post only clickbait nowadays and not so much updates about their lives. I do like Instagram, because I love seeing photos. Never got into Twitter.

      @mchuggs Used to be on FB, deleted my account around the US election. I have friends from all over the poltical spectrum. I have linked in, never use it. I'm on pinterest for my own agenda, not necessarily to connect with others.

      @mchuggs I am on FB and Linkedin . . . even though I actually know the people there, 43T always felt more genuine. I suspect we are a collection of mostly introverted people and find the superficiality that predominates most social media . . . trite and mundane . . . 43T was about what we are doing, what is important to us and the shared humanity that exists when we are struggling, together towards a common goal. No other social media platform has that, and some of us crave that. I know I do.

      I actually tried posting random questions daily, to see who would play with me and answer them on FB, not many people did play. So glad to have this website back.

    Would you read a book written by the spiritual adviser to someone you despise? Did not realise this when I brought the book, now I'm wondering if I should read it or toss it in the trash.
