Lying is full strength weaponry. I prefer dissembling, or providing less than the whole truth. If you were standing next to me when the cellphone rang you might here something like this:
"Why sure, no problem, I'm on my way back up to the office right now."
"What?" <---- Classic stall
"Well, I was just down on the boat, checking on progress, but I'll be back up in 2 minutes."
(At this point, it's important to note that the boss takes "down on the boat" to mean "walking around the construction shed in the shipyard looking at the submarine I'm supposed to be building" and not "hanging out on the dock admiring the shine of my new rigging.")
"OK, see you soon. Buh bye."
See? No need for nuclear weapons, when a little 500 LB bomb will do the trick just fine!
