1. The highest grade I ever received was in Senior French.

2. The lowest grade I ever received was in Chemistry.

3. The hardest class I took in Uni (besides Anthropology) was Political Theory, which was essentially Philosophy.

2 is my lie. My lowest achievement was in Biology because I refused to dissect and I cut a lot of classes (note the play on words?) :roll:

I'd probably would have had lots of trouble with dissecting myself.

1. My first paleoanthropological mentor was Louis Leakey.

2. I learned about him in junior high school.

3. His son, Richard, was a Kenyan politician in addition to being a paleoanthropologist. He dropped out of school at age 16.

I would have had difficulty 'dissecting myself' as well 8)

1 is very clearly your lie! (He wasn't your mentor IRL).

The Lie is #2. I learned about him in 6th grade, when I went to the Museum of Natural History.

I guess he wasn't my direct mentor---but I looked up to Louis Leakey. I thought he was the main guy looking for the Missing Link.

1. Most of my academic reports say that I was 'easily led' by others.

2. Most of my teachers said I was very shy, nervous and frightened.

3. The school noticed this and helped me from a young age.

No :(

I was my own little girl but apparently I was easily swayed. I think I learned to reject the sway, but that kept me nervous and scared and perpetuated a vicious cycle of not trusting anyone.

My lie is 3. Other than speech therapy, I received no help.

Pilates is the lie because it has a face next to it.


1. I dropped out of college for a year and a half before going back to finish
2. I once wrote a nonsense article about quantum mechanics which was published in a Neopagan magazine based out fo the Midwest
3. I have at some point owned an Xbox

Pilates is the lie

#1 is your lie.


I break Boards and bricks to release stress.

Our cats renaissance tower was recently moved to our toy room.

A friend asked me this morning if I brought my roller skating clown to a Halloween 5K. 8)

1. Is the lie.
I gave up board breaking in my 20.
I do still do Tai Chi Yang Style.


1. My cat checks in with me or my wife before starting to eat

2. We replaced the cat tower with a book case in our living room.

3. Last night my wife and I were surprised while watching a talk by the Dali Lama, he used the “F” word and then he laughed. 8)
