Be honest....how often do you lie??

This is not supposed to be a joke thread...although it could turn out to be one....

I wonder this 'cause I've been in a situation where I believe I've been told a lie....and I sincerely hate it, although I'm not a 100% sure of it.

So...I began to ask myself why and what do some people have in their heads to start lying....
It's not that I've never lied ....that's ...but I try to keep my mouth free of lies as much as possible...

How much tolerance do we have towards lies??
How often do we allow to lie??
Why do we lie??
Have you ever met big liar?

There's been a quite interesting documentary on Discovery Channel where they showed, college students who accepted to participate in a monitored test where they had to "meet" other students as in dates. The result was of a very high percentage of admitted lies from the students who were shown their own videos....(actually this "experiment" was about flirting...so it kinda softens their lies cause they were trying to impress the other)

What do you think??

Re: Be honest....how often do you lie??

the last couple monts i always lie to my mum, but i know if i'm telling her the truth she will be disapointed and frustrated and i don't wan't that, i want her to be happy! it's always about school when i get a 2 in school i always say to my mum that i have a 7 or there are some time that i don't want to go to school but if i say that to her she could be very angry. So it's good to lie, with lies you can make people happy!

Re: Be honest....how often do you lie??

Seriously.... I picked:

"I lie only when I don't have other choices"
I'm not the type of person that makes up stories.....I just tend to hide information....

That's a different way to lie...right?

Re: Be honest....how often do you lie??

there are different shades of lies....some are innocent (white) some are not (black) and some are various shades of grey (I heard this in a movie, don't remember the title)

so considering this definition, I do lie daily

I suck at TT so there's no reason to brag with my 1st round exits :retard:
And I adore Radiohead

Re: Be honest....how often do you lie??

I never lie on purpose but I do lie. I think it's a natural human impulse. I lie when people ask me stuff like: "What do you think of my new boyfriend?" Me: "He's great."
I also lied about never lying on purpose... There were times when I did do that. I'm such a horrible person.

Don't be afraid that your life will end, be afraid it will never truely begin.

Re: Be honest....how often do you lie??

I have a tendency to make up random crap when people ask me questions. For some reason I LIKE getting myself in trouble from some pointless lie and then getting out of it.

And then there's the usual lying when you know people don't really want the truth.

I support a lot of mugs.
