Crump: Men Lie More Than Women

You’re right, ma’am. He’s a big, fat prevaricator. Look it up yourself. Britain’s Science Museum recently commissioned a poll on gender and truthfulness and found — hope you’re sitting down, ladies), that the average guy tells three lies a day, or 1,092 a year. (By contrast, the typical woman lies just twice a day, which works out to 728 falsehoods annually.) But there’s worse. The most likely person for a man to lie to is his mother. One-fourth of men say they’ve misled mom — compared with 20 percent of women. “I didn’t have that much to drink” is men’s most popular fib/Steve Crump, Twin Falls Times-News. More here.
