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

Metal detecting
is my hobby, check my profile if interested not that you are.

I'm a member of a club that goes out every Sunday. One member, let's call him Bob, first came to my attention when he was showing off his finds for the day to the others. He'd had a very good day indeed: four medieval silver coins, some Roman coins and brooches, Tudor buckles, etc, etc. Most of us had had a typical day: shotgun cartridges, buttons, a couple of old pennies and a big bag full of rubbish.

I asked one of the others what make and model detector Bob used and he replied "Ebay". I asked him what he meant and he explained that Bob bought stuff of of Ebay then bought it along to the club digs and pretended he'd just found it. "Why the fuck would anyone do that?" I thought to myself not sure whether to believe it.

At another club dig I happened to pass by Bob in the field and asked him if he'd had any luck. He told me he'd found a couple of Roman coins and fished them out of his pouch for me to have a look at. One of his coins was suprisingly shiny for something just dug out of the earth and upon closer inspection I found that it had "(c) 2006" stamped on one side, it was a brand new reproduction. "It says 2006 on it" I said to Bob and he replied "I know, that's the second one I've had off of here". Didn't try to cover up his bullshit, just added to it with a large dollop of insanity.

It will be a laugh if he ever finds something really good as no one will believe him.

I went metal detecting with my mate
on the proviso that we could stop after each sweep of the field for a can of beer. I only had one go for five minutes, as I was doing most of the digging, but found a large musket ball and a stamped silver coin. He was livid.
