Some people are easier to believe than others. Because some people like to tell the truth whereas others prefer to lie.
So why do people lie?
Lying is a form of deception. Wikipedia lists various types of lies such as a bold face lie, a cover-up, a bluff, fake news, and perjury.
Lying is not just for humans. Koko the Gorilla once ripped a sing out of the wall and, when her caretaker confronted her about it, Koko, an avid Mr. Rogers fan, blamed her cats despite her great love for them.
When asked where animals go when they die, Koko, using sign language as always, answered “a comfortable hole”. In 2018, Koko died in her sleep at the age of 46.
