Yes I can be honest about Zipper day
Zipper Day is April 29
Gideon Sundback invented the modern zipper in 1913. It got a patent calling it a “Separable Fastener” in 1917.
The B.F. Goodrich company coined the word zipper. They used them on boots and pouches.
YKK is a Japanese company that makes roughly half of all the zippers on earth.
Do you have a YKK zipper?
National Honesty Day
Honesty Day is April 30.
As you can see, I used a Z post on the Y day.
But come on, it was ZIPPER day! It's not like a better Z holiday was going to come along!
So, to be honest, I'm making this a double post, and celebrating Y as "Yes, I can be Honest," though that holiday won't be until Z day. Confused? Well, sometimes the truth is messy.
What I've done here is make a lie of commission. That's when you twist the truth, usually so it's more favorable.
Not to be confused with a lie of omission. That's when you leave part of the truth out.
A lie of influence is when you add untrue or unrelated information to the truth.
Sometimes there are false promise lies. That's when someone makes a promise they don't actually intend to keep.
A white lie is when you smudge the truth to be polite, tactful, or to protect someone's feelings.
Fabrications are lies that are total fiction. There's little to no truth involved in these.
The big difference between that and bold-faced lie is reception. While people might believe a well-done fabrication, no one believes a bold-faced lie.
A compulsive liar will lie in order to tell people what they want to hear.
Excessive white matter in the brain's prefrontal cortex seems to be the cause of pathological lying.
How often are you honest?
