For SixContext #138, we asked you to come up with your most incredible lies and half-truths. And to be honest, you blew us away. Silver-tongued Sixers shared everyday white lies, exaggerated narratives, and brutal dishonesty. You revealed lies we suspect you’re telling yourself (“Tattoos never will be on my skin! – MorganHintz, age 14) as well as telling others (“Your eyebrows will grow back… soon.” —AnneWasHere). Others lied through their teeth to deflect blame (“Was that you who just farted?” —Steve_Anthony) or avoid arguments (“Bro, you’re rocking the skinny jeans.” — l8leigh). Some offered fibs about technology (“I’ve read the terms and conditions.”—Anirudh) and others suspect big tech is lying the them (“Your information is secure with us.” Rebecca_Stasdolnick). And a few big little liars conspired against the concept of six words (“I’m not saying six words now.” —MoSA; “I followed the rules of this contest.” — Jub).
