Here's the biggest takeaway though:
"A lie has no power whatsoever by its mere utterance; its power emerges when someone else agrees to believe the lie.In other words, a lie is like tango... it takes two, a liar, and a believer.
While you are not going to think everybody around you is going to lie to you, it may be prudent for you to learn how to spot lies when dealing with strangers, both in person, and online.
The normal way to deal with "not-sure-stuff" is to research it, and indeed, 65% of Americans don't believe what's on the Internet.
The problem you don't have time to research it all, thus, you have to make judgement calls on what to trust and what not to, often under time pressure, and very often, you trust the WRONG STUFF.
