Deception

I am always curious about the motivation and rational behind a compulsive liar.
I am blown away by the gall some have when telling a lie that can so easily be found out with nothing more than a simple phone call.
Or a lie told that is so contrary to the circumstances that there is virtually no possible way it could be true unless it existed in some alternate universe or reality.

I do think that some times individuals are so driven to achieve a particular goal that they will manufacturer scenarios that they might later use to give a lie some prospect of credibility. Or at least give their lie just enough vale that it has certain possibilities. The recipient may be inclined to think or say "yeah, I could see how that can happen".

Whether artfully done, or blatant, and regardless of the motivation, I tend to believe that lying is the lowest and most disgusting human trait I can think of.
It's a little bit worthy.

I found an empty package of cookies in the garbage can the other day. I didn't recall seeing them at any point in the cupboard. I'm a big fan of the cookie-shocking to know that a bike rider would confess such a sordid detail. I confronted the wifeage and she said with a holy shit I'm busted look on her face, "the cookie package blew up on our driveway as litter." "Hmmmmm," was all I could say.

I think the 5 second rule applies even in the driveway.
