    Default A Liar Or An Asshole - What Is Worse?

    Hey All,

    They say that everybody lies and there have been statistics to support this. Most people lie to others once or twice a day and deceive about 30 people per week.

    The average is 7 times per hour if you count all the times people lie to themselves.

    We lie in 30 to 38% of all our interactions.

    - 10,000,000 people lie to the IRS each year.
    - 80% of us lie on our resumes.
    - 70% of all doctors lie to insurance companies.
    - 100% of dating couples surveyed lied to each other in about a third of their conversations.
    - 20% - 30% of middle managers surveyed had written fraudulent internal reports.
    - 95% of participating college students surveyed were willing to tell at least one lie to a potential employer to win a job, and 41% had already done so.

    We are lied to about 200 times each day.

    So what do you think is worse - being a liar or an asshole. Everyone may lie, but not everyone is an asshole.

    A liar is way worse than an asshole. At least you know what you're dealing with when you talk with an asshole.

    Sigworthy.

    I find an asshole far easier to deal with than a liar. At least with an asshole, you know where you stand at once. Liars, you have to find out about - often after some damage has been done.

    I'm not an asshole, but I am a liar.

    Have we exhausted all possibilities yet?

    "You may recognize some of these chemicals. Let's start with cyanide...The one the Aum Shinrikyo cult attempted to use to commit mass murder in a Tokyo subway in May 1995...The same cyanide produced routinely--1.4 million tons per year--for use in the production of plastics, adhesives, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and so on. It seems that those who put small amounts of cyanide in subways are terrorists. But those who produce it in mass quantities and contaminate broad reaches of soil, water, and air, killing countless living beings, are not terrorists, but rather capitalists, and are counted among the finest and most powerful people on the planet."

    Ultimately in my book a liar is much worse. I don't think the two are mutually exclusive such that being an asshole makes you a liar, but being a liar automatically makes you an asshole to a certain extent.

    If you'll lie, you'll steal. If you're an asshole, it's pretty well understood that most everything you say, true as it may be, is gonna stink to some extent.

    Any man who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the Government take care of him better take a closer look at the American Indian. - Henry Ford
