I knew one person who swore she worked at Area 51, she was my HS english teacher But some how had managed to work at the base testing new metals.

What the hell drives some one to make such a lie, I can understand telling some one you forgot something because you didn't want to be bothered with it but at the same time don't want to be dick to them.

But making your entire life into a lie

My personal experience with people that "embellish" their lives is that they think that they have to in order to be interesting or accepted.

I have to believe that a lot it comes from weak-minded people that have bought into the mass media/mass marketed ideas that you are bombarded with every second of every day. They start to actually think that the world is like what is portrayed on TV and other media. They have to be "special" in order to satisfy their egos.

Given the typical teacher in todays public government schools I could well believe that most of them ARE aliens.

Yeah, I know what you're talking about. There's been a couple of those types on here.

Hielo and his exoctic car fire/ 10,000 square foot bathroom that no one was allowed to see. He eventually disappeared, I'm sure he's still on here under a different name.

There was also this other guy who claimed to be a childhood actor. When he was questioned about it he said it was a joke, but at the time he was in a serious duscussion. I suspect it was a second lie (about it being a joke) to cover up the first.

Attention whore's; the lot of them.

A guy I worked with always had some adventure he would tell us about. His brother supposedly got killed and he missed a week of work to back home to AZ. After all the other lies he told, nobody really believed him about his brother.
Link Posted: 5/23/2005 6:14:16 AM EDT
I did this a lot when i was a kid. prolly cause i wasn't really allowed to have friends so i thought i had to impress people while i was at school. noone ever really acknowledged me unless i was telling a bogus story. now that i'm older, i don't like people that much. if i ever have kids, i'm not going to keep them hidden like i was. And i'm gonna teach him to punch people when they won't listen.

i still find myself trying to make stuff up, but now that i'm older i catch myself and quit while i'm ahead. i have told 4 bogus stories to my wife. later i told her they were lies and when asked why i would lie about something so stupid, i didn't have an answer. i don't tell her bogus stories anymore...

In short, I did it cause I was lonely, and it was the only way I could get attention. Now that I'm older and carry guns, I don't wanna be noticed, so I don't make up stories anymore...

I see too many parents now that feel they're too busy to listen to their kids, so they kids do what you describe to try to get their parent's attention. It teaches the kids to exaggerate or lie.z

LMAO. I was trying to claim to be webster, the little black kid for just laughs. Am I never gonna live that down? So what you talking bout.
Link Posted: 5/23/2005 12:51:05 PM EDT
Same exact thing that makes people lie about being in Vietnam or a motorcycle gang or anywhere they weren't. They want to identify with a particular group and they want to impress people.

I don't know the "why" other than there has to be some major deficiency in their lives to make them fabricate another life.

I was talking to a guy at a bar the other night.

He started to claim that he was ex-SF and all this crap. He claimed to be a Marine serving in Afghanistan during the late 80s. It was such obvious bullshit that it was frightening that he was recalling it all with such vigor.

Certainly enough to make me to a few steps back...

I have always found it amazing the claims some people make
they must have self-esteem issues to need to pretend accomplishments

I personally have MUCH more respect for someone I can believe
no matter what they have achieved, or not achieved

I already know plenty of smart people, rich people, important people and badasses......

These days, I am happy to just meet someone that I don't think is lying to me

I hope nobody will ever discover that I really AM Dutch! The shame would be too much to bear.

Seriously, I never understood why someone like hielo would go to all that trouble to make up elaborate lies, just to convince a bunch of anonymous jerks on the internet that he was incredibly wealthy. Very weird.
