Stryker72 As my boss says, a lie is as good as the true just so long the true doesn't come out.

sailhog That's Senator Sailhog to you, Hesper.

Hesper I can see it now - Sailhog's gonna end up running for office. He's learned to be a natural politician.

Thanks. It's sealed with Dow Corning 795 white silicon - that's what Beckson recommended and I bought it from them directly along with the port.

phallo153 Why wait to see if you get laid? Just lie about it when asked about the "best day in your life"

cockeyedbob Better an interesting lie than the boring truth ...

Telling huge lies, one after another, just seems more wholesome. Sailingdog, I feel like you aren't 100% on board with this idea. WHAT IN THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU?

sailingdog LOL... There is an art to telling the truth...and shading it just right.

You're still telling the truth...

is all true...if your boss jumps to the erroreous conclusion that the boat is the submarine, you can't be faulted for that at all.

morganmike 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:

"Yes, Boss?"
""
"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!
