I could. But then I am a jerk. And yes, your ass does look fat in that dress because you have a fat ass. It'll look fat in anything you wear. But I like it so why worry so much about it?
 
2012-08-19 08:56:17 AM
It's not a lie if you believe it.
 
2012-08-19 09:07:33 AM
Ten weeks? Maybe. If it's just BS smalltalk with coworkers, sure. If the cops come by and ask about the hooker corpse in the alley, probably not.
 
2012-08-19 09:10:17 AM
Yes.
Dammit.
Can we start over?
 
2012-08-19 09:10:41 AM
Absoutely.
 
2012-08-19 09:11:45 AM
Sure, I can. No problem. Just ask my wife, Morgan Fairchild. Yeah, that's the ticket.
 
2012-08-19 09:11:51 AM
That depends on how you define 'Lie'.
 
2012-08-19 09:12:04 AM
Yes honey, you do look like you've packed on a few pounds. If I had to be honest, maybe you should talk to a therapist rather than eating ice cream every time you feel overwhelmed.
 
2012-08-19 09:12:20 AM
Could Faux News go 10 minutes?
 
2012-08-19 09:12:24 AM
No, my feet would start hurting.
 
2012-08-19 09:12:26 AM
Lord knows that NBC "news" couldn't.
 
2012-08-19 09:12:27 AM
Could you go 10 weeks without farting?

'Cause THAT would be an accomplishment.
 
2012-08-19 09:13:00 AM
the only lie i ever tell is when my PARENTS ask "are you on any other drugs than marijuana" i USUALLY just said no
cause your supposed to just say no
 
2012-08-19 09:16:12 AM
I could, only if people enjoy being offended.
 
2012-08-19 09:16:51 AM
10 weeks? Most people probably couldnt go 10 hours considering all the little innocent, it's not worth the fight, lies we all tell....
 
2012-08-19 09:17:24 AM
Would it be possible that this be the first question during the first presidential debate?
 
2012-08-19 09:18:45 AM
Two of the voices are telling me to smile, say yes and walk away. But the other one is screaming at me to rip your face off because you are actually a robot. I'm no sure who to believe here.

Dumpster or barrel full of lye...rookie! Craig James disapproves!
 
2012-08-19 09:20:37 AM
Why? Is 10 weeks NBC's proposed time delay for broadcasting the bext Olympics or something?

pjbreeze: That depends on how you define 'Lie'.


Is that somehow relative to how you define "is"?
 
2012-08-19 09:21:02 AM
I recall the extremely funny line of -- "The only time that honesty is the best policy is when you are answering the paramedics when they ask 'what did you take?' "

MeinRS6: Lord knows that NBC "news" couldn't.


Oh, I was wondering why the politics tab was currently free of thread shiat.
 
2012-08-19 09:21:13 AM
The problem, NBC, is that professional news is supposed to be more accurate than a random blogger. So don't go crying that because your professionals tell white lies in their personal lies, that it makes the bigger lies told to the public OK.

That goes for every other company that peddles "news."
 
2012-08-19 09:21:43 AM
Yes easily. I make it a point not to do things that would require me to lie in the first place so not a single fark would be given.
 
2012-08-19 09:26:49 AM
Couldn't make it through that boring article....no lie
 
2012-08-19 09:35:53 AM
No.
 
2012-08-19 09:38:00 AM
As a manager of a business, no.
 
2012-08-19 09:43:30 AM
No. I work.

One of the few unintentionally poignant lines from Community: "90% of the lying people do takes place six inches from the bathroom mirror."

Speak for yourself, sociopath. But yeah I get it, most normal people are sociopaths.

So... most people compare dicks with their reflections?

/never occured to me to do this before now but I'm not obssesed with the little guy like that

2012-08-19 09:54:03 AM
can mitt romney go ten minutes without lying? that's the real question.
 
2012-08-19 09:54:56 AM
I challenge NBC News to try for 10 minutes.



They'll never make it.

FlashHarry: can mitt romney go ten minutes without lying? that's the real question.


Just couldn't resist injecting politics into it, eh? You must be a blast at parties.

When I read that quote, the first thing I thought of was people's weight, fitness, overall general appearance. It did not even occur to me that it may have been a dick reference.

Also, you seem to assume that "most people" even have dicks to begin with. I'd have thought it was more in the overall range of 50/50.

You say you're not obsessed, but I wonder if you perhaps protest too much...
 
2012-08-19 10:03:43 AM
Yes.
But of course that's a lie.
 
2012-08-19 10:04:57 AM
This reminds me of the plot of my favorite Jim Carrey movie... "Leap Dave Williams"

I play D&D. Isn't making stuff up the definition of lying?

mikaloyd: Why? Is 10 weeks NBC's proposed time delay for broadcasting the next Olympics or something?


Yes, this.

ajgeek: I play D&D. Isn't making stuff up the definition of lying?


Since lying pretty much means masking the truth by saying something different, I'd say no. In D&D you're basically creating a story and everyone is (hopefully) conscious that everything is made up.
 
2012-08-19 10:11:12 AM
That would be a no. As a teacher in the South, if I were to not lie about many of my opinions and world views I would lose my job in no more than 2 days.

Is she writing a story about that misprinted French flag behind her?

Beyond the question of "if you can" (answer, no, you can't) is the one "is it a good idea not to lie?" That answer is no as well.

We tell dozens if not hundreds of small lies daily, and our lives would fall apart if we didn't. When your boss drops in and asks how things are going do you really want to tell him that you're pissed off because he made a stupid decision and you have to pick up the pieces? Are you going to tell your kid that you'd rather do almost anything else rather than sit through the horrible school play she's been rehearsing for? How long is your marriage going to last if you really tell your wife everything you think about her?

Small lies are the social grease you need to keep everything working.
