RIP Philo

There comes a time...

Have you ever known someone for a while and it's fun at first, but then things seem kind of off. Then you start to notice a fib here and there. Then, over time, you hear things that contradict what you heard earlier. You may hear a story you told them coming out of their mouth like it happened to them, or a girlfriend story turns into a sister story.

Finally you hear them tell one you know is absolutely false, and what's worse, you have no idea why they would even bother lying about such a thing.

That's when you know they're a pathological liar. They don't lie to cover up their screwups; they don't lie to make themselves look better; they don't lie for self-gain. They simply lie because they don't think anything they say really matters - they're just words. "Hey look - the sky is pink." is just something to say because they felt like it.

Yep, looks like we've got one in the Oval Office.

That's because they know who did it. That's because it was an order.

Producing a bunch of documents for a subsequent criminal investigation to use... nah.

I knew someone like that once when I was an astronaut.
