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

One epic road trip!
A friend of mine went away on a road trip with some of his buddies for half a year or so. When he came back, he was filled with fantastic tales of adventure:

Narrowly escaping from Mexican murderers because they didn't know he spoke Spanish and started talking in front of him about how they would kill him.

How he and his friends got picked to become Robert DeNiro's bodyguards because they saw him beat someone up in a punk club.

Getting pulled by the police with a bag of drugs that would rival Raoul Duke's and hiding it so well the police never found it.

Starting a riot then sneaking past the wall of police with his brass knuckles hidden in his shoes.

We listened to his stories, and were polite enough, even though it was clearly bullshit. A few months later, he died of a heroin overdose, and while talking to his friends and family at his funeral, we learned that either him and his friends are masters of coordinating and remembering intricate lies, or most of that stuff was actually true. Even his father mentioned the Robert DeNiro story in his eulogy. Turns out Deniro was a friend of a friend of his father, and really did hire them.

Maybe the other stuff was bullshit, maybe not, but I learned that day not to pass judgment too quickly.
