It's never fun to be lied to, particularly by your significant other.

Sometimes we discover that they were lying to us in order to surprise us for our birthday or anniversary, making the dishonesty easily forgiven.

In other instances, however, their lies were all to cover up something much less celebratory.

For better or worse, some people's partners are very convincing liars.

Others however are simply unable to keep a secret, and their stories or explanations to cover things up only make things worse.


Redditor CanadianKiss was eager to hear the most absurd and ridiculous lies people ever heard from their significant others, leading them to ask:

The key to a healthy relationship is honesty, barring of course covering up a surprise which will make your partner happy.

And when the only way to stay in a relationship is through lies and deceit, it's probably time to start re-evaluating how well things are going.

Ironically, that's when it becomes time to really be "honest" with yourself.

It's very popular to create rumors about certain historical figures to which there is no concrete evidence.

Such as the sexual orientation of Abraham Lincoln or the alleged illicit behavior of Lewis Carroll and Hans Christian Andersen.

Understandably, these mostly baseless, though not necessarily false, theories are left out of history books.

However, there are facts about legends of history which have, indeed, been proven true, but are also left out of history books.

Namely, because it's not the sort of information many would consider in polite conversation, let alone be talked about in schools.

Even if it is no less fascinating than anything else we might learn.

We've sure been hearing the term "conspiracy theory" a lot lately.

And if history has taught us anything, it's that it would do us all good to avoid them altogether as they are rooted in falsehoods tied to clandestine government plans and sinister plots–which, yeah, doesn't sound good.

But like anyone spinning a rumor, people tend to latch on to spurious information that cannot be verified by science or fact because it's just easy to go along with it without taking the time for research.

But there are some conspiracy theories that do make us wonder if there is something to them.

You don't have to be acquainted with someone to know enough about the kind of person they are.

Observing their attitude around people or what clothes they wear can easily give away a stranger's temperament that identifies them as either superficial or genuine.

Of course, being judgmental based on one's appearance is not an unfair assessment. However, you know deep down inside, we all have the predisposition to do exactly that.
