Just wanted to let you know that page is a wiki, so anyone (logged in) can edit it. I'm just writing everything I find out my first time through, so I can fix it later. When I wrote 'not truth' that is because I guessed truth and it was wrong so if someone figures it out, they can click edit and add the correct answer. So basically what you're reading is a rough draft that will be improved soon.

For the Ryan int. you can also choose lie on the 4th question and use Ryan's Criminal Record as evidence.
