My favorite sort of these people are the ones who have no qualifications and just make stuff up. It’s even better when they’re stark raving flapping arms behind granny’s outhouse hopping bat shit insane.
The head of the fencing club at my college was one of these guys. He was always “in training” for the Olympics. Never mind that he was 6 ft tall and weighed 300 pounds, smelled like old cheese, and I never saw him without his usual armament of a chocolate donut and a glass of coke. He was also an ex-Navy Seal (almost de rigeur for SRFABGOHBSI chronic liars).
One of my friends happened to be Jewish. When he found out, he told my friend that he’d been sent to Brazil once to fight the Nazis. :rolleyes:
I can’t decide if he was actually crazy, lived in a carefully constructed Dungeons and Dragon-esque fantasy world or was just an awful liar.
