To Tell A Lie

On a scale of 1-10, 1 being low, 10 being high, how much do these feelings influence your likliness to tell a lie?
I tend to think that for myself, i am most likely to tell a lie if i am afraid and think it will protect me, or ashamed/guilty about the truth and i want to cover it up.
i don't promote lying. i usually hate myself when i lie, but lets face it, we all lie on occaision. this quiz is to figure out a little more about why we do. Discussion is encouraged.

I think I'm the same, I hate lying but it's human nature if there's fear or guilt to want to protect yourself, especially if you're caught unprepared and it's kind of a knee-jerk reaction. Doesn't excuse it, but doesn't make it unforgivable either, IMO. And then there's the "of course you look great" kind of thing too, lol.

Hey, just thought I'd say hi, and well. I know that you'll get my e-mail via Eljay so it seemed convienient.

I hope all is well and what not. you should totally go see transformers if you havent. Best movie ever. It's probably already on Dvd in the US. I think we get things a little later here?

I'm currently painting a picture of optimus prime, I want to be just like him when I grow up.

I heard something about a heat wave over there. So I hope you're keeping cool. Although, Ijust looked up, what the temperature was off that news program and, 90degrees is only (in my language 32) and 100 is only 37. I don't know if that counts as a heat wave.

I guess, it gets to about, on a regular basis 113 here. Which is pretty warm. In the country where my nanna lives they've gotten a few 122's. Urgh. I have to search everything to be in your 17th century parlance. YAY METRIC SYSTEM

Anyway. I guess it's like saying it's bloody cold here. Which it is. But probably not in terms of what you're used to. It doesn't snow here or anything like that. Like. It got to 35 (your language) here today. Which. BRRRRRRRR. Thats almost freezing.

Most the time it's still 59 here in the winter.

Gah. Numbers are fuckign with my head. xoxoxox peace out.

it has been hot here but not too too bad. we've been having a lot of styorms which makes the heat very very muggy as well, which is the part that sucks. i prefer dry heat to sweating uncontollably, but where i live, i'm pretty used to the sweaty kind of heat in the summer.
transformers is still in theatres here. actually, i'm pretty sure it only came out in the last month...i'm not really sure... but it was good you say? i'll have to see it eventually

how are you?
