Modern Lies

There's a kind of cliché about certain common statements being lies. The classic example is "Your check's in the mail."

Of course, nobody mails checks anymore, but the concept of common lies still applies. Here, in no particular order, are a few examples:

  • There's another train right behind this one.
  • There will be little or no snow accumulation.
  • This plan includes unlimited data.
  • This is a secure Web site.
  • Your call is important to us.
  • The doctor will see you now.

And pretty much anything referring to "Facebook privacy settings."
