True or false

Basically, for this, you answer the true or false question of the person who posted before you and explain why it's true or false as wellIf you want to . Then below that, you ask a true or false question for the next person to answer. It's fairly straight forward.

Example:

Person 1: The next person knows how to play the guitar!

Person 2: True. I've been playing since I was a kid.
The next person bought the new Pokémon game!

Person 3: False, I haven't got around to buying it yet.
The next person... (and so on, you get the picture).



Here we go...



Next person lives in the uk

True. I don't even know where on this island there is a jukebox. I avoid bars like the plague but perhaps there is a jukebox in a local watering hole? I doubt that since live music tends to be favored.
