Many stories, true and false, circulate all-around online. You know it. We know it. How about we test your ability to discern the real from the fake? In this article, three stories will be briefly told, shortened heavily, but including all the details you need. It will be up to you to look through these tales, and figure out which one is true because only one of them is!

A small group of seniors, all of which were drunk, came onto campus during the spring. They climbed up onto the J building’s roof, about a half-hour before people began arriving on campus. Once they all were perched up there, they began to mimic bird calls they heard. Poorly. This lasted for around twenty-five minutes, passing out after that amount of time. Once they did, staff members climbed up to bring the seniors down.

Some high school students had decided to make a brand. After this, the group drove to Rayleys, parking out front. They then decided to take the brand they had created and brand themselves with it. What resulted was it cut right through their epidermis, and when they tried to remove it, their muscles were pulled out. This, of course, resulted in them requiring hospitalization.

Shortly after Winter Break, in January of 1969, two gangs began to fight on-campus. One gang member had brought a knife, as one does, and proceeded to lunge at an enemy gang member. They then proceeded to gut the opponent like a fish, killing them. Of course, the fight was eventually broken up and appropriate arrests were made, but the murder was an unexpected, tragic find.

Now comes your part. Can you deduct which one isn’t a false tale? Remember, just one of these is a real occurrence, and the others are not.
