Just because I'm rated a 8.9 on "Hot or Not" and an Ivy League grad, Mensa member, can bench/squat/leg-press over 1200 pounds, has had lunch with the Secretary of Defense, have an MBA from the top school in the country, live in a Buckhead high-rise, drive a Beemer convertable, was in Jezebel's "Best Dressed", and have appeared in 14 major motion pictures, doesn't mean I'm automatically lying....

shortcomings

Personally, I never brag, because that would be terribly low-class and I'm obviously above that. Also, I would be honest about my shortcomings if I had any. Study is flawed, at best.

All eople are more likely to be boastful when they are younger

And less likely to spell correctly.

I like to tell women that I can give them 9 inches... I just have to f*ck them twice to achive that measurement.

Does humblebragging count?

As the old joke goes, "She told me to give her nine inches and make it hurt. So I farked her three times and slapped her."

Approximately seven in 10 men confessed to boasting about what they are good at, while half admitted they have claimed to be skilled in areas that they are not.

Now wait a second, we are going by self-reported bragging/lying? A real liar wouldn't admit to it.

A Beemer is a motorcycle, and they don't make those in convertibles. A Bimmer is a car. TMYK.

Admit what?

And silly me bragging about my shortcomings and lying about my talents.
 
2014-07-15 01:11:54 PM
As the world's least endowed porn star, I'm all too familiar with shortcomings.
 
2014-07-15 01:14:09 PM
I happen to know the things I am good at.
 
2014-07-15 01:17:05 PM
Is this why so many blimp-sized women refer to themselves as "full figured?"
 
2014-07-15 01:23:04 PM
I already knew that a long time ago, even though I didn't complete my Post-Doc.
 
2014-07-15 01:30:36 PM
I call BS on this survey.
 
2014-07-15 01:32:10 PM
That's because no one cares to ask about women.

Research that I've conducted by living on Earth for over 40 years shows that women are far more likely than men to lie about their friends, close friends, best friends, frienemies, family, boyfriends, and porn habits.

Well, I probably shouldn't be slumming with the likes of you. Sorry. I will reserve my corrections for better people in the future.

I was just discussing this topic the other day with my wife... Morgan Fairchild.

The article makes it sound as though this was just a survey which makes the finding meaningless. You could argue that men confessing to bragging more often shows better ability to reflect on one's actions, or that men are just more honest, which would seem as silly a thing to say as what they actually are saying.

Also I suppose this is somewhat typical of the daily mail to write out ridiculous articles from groups like thetrainline.com as though they're scientific institutions.

Women just gaggle with other women who will lie to them to boost their self-esteem.
