Today is National Honesty Day! It was invented by M. Hirsh Goldberg, who chose the last day of April since the first day of that month, which is April Fools’ Day, celebrates falsehoods. On this day, anyone participating may ask any question they choose and the opposing person should give a truthful and straightforward answer. This is implying that the person who is answering the question has knowledge of Honesty Day.
According to Times Dispatch, a recent Gallup poll found that nurses are the most honest people. In contrast, lobbyists, salesmen, and Congress are supposedly the least honest people.
According to Goldberg’s book The Book of Lies: Fibs, Tales, Schemes, Scams, Fakes, and Frauds That Have Changed The Course of History and Affect Our Daily Lives, the average person lies about 200 times a day with lies including omission and white lies.
According to a poll conducted by London’s Science Museum upon 3,000 British citizens, the average British man tells three lies a day, while the average woman tells two lies a day. The average lie for a man is “I didn’t drink that much!” and for a woman it is “Nothings wrong, i’m fine”. Also according to the poll, people are more than likely to lie to their mothers.
