Being an ex mechanic I used to cop a lot of interesting stories and the 1 that stuck out amongst many was 1 bloke who swore black and blue that his Holden(General Motors Holden Aussie version of GM) V8 308ci ute had completely spun the engine in the engine bay while the ute was doing 60mph.

I asked him how he knew this and he said that the engine was sitting on it's side in the engine bay. Actual fact was that the engine dropped a engine mount.
This was a standard joke amongst my mates and I for a long time.

The subject of guns and hunting always brings out the best in people I reckon.

2 stories,as at the last place I worked at there was a couple of us talking guns and hunting in general when old mate decides to throw his 2c in and says that he had a .243 that threw a projectile out at 5000fps.
Now this was just ripe for a pisstake so the 1st question I asked was "Did you chrongraph that load and what powder charge and projectile did you use and in what rifle?"

He looked at me and without missing a beat replied,"It was in a BSA Chronach(? yes I looked at him and had to turn away before I pissed myself laughing) and it was using some brand of bullet that I can't remember(where upon I started rattling off a few brand names but he sort of looked at me stunned) and it was gunpowder that was grey looking." and then I the clanger "Whats a chronograph,never heard of one of those."

I explained then that a chronograph was used to measure projectile velocity and it's been around for along time.
I then said that the only time a projectile from a rifle had hit 5000 fps was from a 30/06 and it was in an experimental rifle that the US Army was trialing years ago(I hope this is right glad to be corrected).
It was at this stage he sort of walked off not saying much claiming he had to do something.

2nd story involved another bloke at the same place that was a bit of a fisho and shooter and a teller of tall tales and true.

I was talking to a bloke about spotlighting foxes and how many I'd shot a couple of nights before and the subject of how far away have you shot a fox at came up.
This bloke pipes up and says that he shot a Emu on the run in the spotlight at............... 1000yds with his 22/250 in the head in the spotlight.

Now for those of you who do spotlight you'll know that a 1000 yds in a spotlight is a major achievement with any spotlight unless you've got 1 from an AA defense setup and to hit an EMU in the head at this range is somewhere close to a Carlos Hathcock superman type shooter with Superman vision and Bobby Lee Swaggert abilities thrown in for good measure.

I mentioned to him that at night distances are really hard to judge sometimes and left it at that,regards
You forgot, he also needed divine intervention, Voodo and the luck of the Irish to make that shot.

Stolen Valor...

I worked with a guy that claimed to be retired B52 pilot that flew in first gulf war. I'm a private pilot, and this guy knew enough to "almost" convince me, but had some pretty wild stories and still had an incredible lack of knowledge of non military aviation. About the time I was convinced he was full of it, we went flying in my plane on an IFR flight plan. It was CAUVO, and I was messing around with some charts, when I saw him reach for the yoke. That got my attention pretty quick... we were 50' off our assigned altitude. Never did figure it out.

Worked with another guy who told some wild stories, but everybody that had ever checked into the stories discovered they were 100% true.

many pathological liars are like that. they feel the need to tell lies to be better than others, and many do this because they have no self esteem
That's what I never understood about our youngest, she really has a great package, intelligence, sports, and a beautiful young lady.

Last weekend, on a street corner, I saw a bum with the normal cardboard sign, except his said, "WWII Vet, Hungry, Need help". He was in his 40s. If anyone ever needed a serious asswhoopin, it was that guy; not for being a bum, or being a liar, but for being a freaking idiot.

I remember goin from middle school to high school, thinking all the liars would be gone. Then I started working, and realized there are grown men that lie all the time. I know a few "toppers", and I can't stand to be around em.

It is much better to wait, walk into the classroom, walk to the front, and introduce yourself to the group.
Well then, well played sir! I agree that walking into the classroom would be the perfect call.
