This is a question Bullshit and Bullshitters

We've had questions about lies and liars in the past, but this time we're asking about the sort of fantasist who constantly claims they've got a helicopter in the garden or was "second onto the balcony at the Iranian Embassy siege". Tell us about the cobblers you've been told, or the complete lies you've come out with.

Thanks to dozer for the suggestion

actually, I'm not sure what IS the truth here...
so.... this is a very hard one to work out what the actual truth is, so I'll tell you the story as our entire year heard it, and then the follow up so you can make up your own minds (apologies in advance if anyone from my school recognises this story!)

Back when I was in secondary school, a popular kid (let's call him "Dave") held a party. Almost the entire year turn up it seemed, and one lad in particular (he shall be named "John" for the sake of this recanting) was in attendance, and went to the toilet. Now... the next day, the rumour mill was in overgrind mode - someone had caught "John" having a wank in "Dave"'s bathroom!

As you can imagine with a bunch of 14 year olds... this rumour went round the school so fast I'm surprised the gym teacher didn't sign it up for the running team! YEARS (and I mean absolute YEARS!) of the poor bloke being known as "That lad that had a wank in someone's bathroom!" and it took it's toll on our hero. "John" was clearly hurt by it all, and a few years later when Friends Reunited started up, he posted one legend of a post on his profile, lambasting EVERYONE at school.

Some key highlights (names removed to protect the innocent!) included mocking someone for his half-German family and accusing him of being a Nazi like his granddad, multiple insults against the sluts of the year (we had a lot of unplanned teenage pregnancies before our GCSEs) and even going so far as to highlighting another guy's terminal illness (I think it was leukemia) and posting something akin to "I hope you die soon so I can dance on your grave!"

Again... this profile posting went round the groups of friends everyone kept in touch with, and apparently (according to a friend of a friend) "John" had turned into a very bitter and upset person, clearly created after years of abuse.

Now.... he then retracted this legendary post by writing an apology, and I know someone who has seen him since and he's got a nice life now, nice girlfriend and a decent job etc.. but I still wonder whether or not it was true!!

Kids can be very cruel sometimes, but this one time, I think our entire year fucked "John" over royally by pretty much ruining his formative years by labelling him as that kid who had a wank in someone's bathroom. On a serious note, I do know that he was depressed and possibly so emotional that suicide probably was a genuine option in his mind, and that alone makes me feel pretty shit inside, so I can only sympathise.

I have no idea whether it was one lie that got out of hand or not, but it genuinely strikes me to this day that we should have laughed it off and moved on a lot sooner than we did
