T-Minus four days and counting until you launch your latest round of New Year’s resolutions.  You know, a repeat of the same ones you’ve launched the past 10 years. But maybe, just maybe you are going to add a new one to the mix.  Say for example NOT to tell lies in the new year.  Good luck…it seems that one is in the blood!

Believe it or not, the average person tells a whopping 88,000 lies in a lifetime, says a recent study that also estimates that men lie 66% more than women.

The survey discovered that the average person tells four untruths a day. Broken down by sex, men average five lies a day as compared with three fibs a day for women. Figuring a 60-year lifespan, the study, by British vodka maker WKD, predicts that lifetime lie totals can reach 109,500 for men and 65,700 for women.

Most common lies include: "This tastes delicious," "The check's in the mail," "Our server was down," "I'm stuck in traffic," "Sorry, I missed your call," and, of course,  “Dave, I love your posts!”
