I probably won’t be around for awhile. I’ve been doing some introspection tonight, trying to get to the root of my fascination with pathological liars. Well, along with doing some more rather heavy inner searching, I’ve decided to write a somewhat formal treatment on the subject. It’ll be a good writing exercise, if nothing else. Hopefully in a few weeks or so, I’ll have something comprehensive, as well as cogent (fingers crossed!).
Psychological investigation has revealed that lying is and has always been a ubiquitous facet of the human condition. I hope to go into the history, the science, as well as the way the internet has paved broad new thoroughfares for liars to hock their wares upon. Can internet prevarication be considered a new art form? And how does religion play into all this? I mean, these folks seem to be walking a knife’s edge between ethical mandate and some inner drive to revel in their deceitful natures, don’t they? Like I said, it all fascinates me, so I’ll try to follow through on this just as quickly as I can, in between other projects.
If things wind up taking longer than expected, I’ll pop in for an update or two. Thanks for your patience, ye handful of visitors to this blog. Until I return, feel free to browse.
UPDATE: Wow, a lot of hits the last couple of days. People love a ruckus!
UPDATE: Might have to put this stuff on hold for awhile. I have some writing to do that might actually make me a little money, which is always foremost on my list of necessities, unfortunately. But I’ll try to keep checking in when I can, and commenting on cl’s more outrageous stuff as time and interest permit. Oh, and here’s a hint: Keep an eye on what cl ignores, and you’ll learn a lot about him. You know, read between the lines. LOL!
For those who care, anyway.
