Lies, Damned Lies – 20 April 2021

Is it easier to lie convincingly through the technology of a Zoom virtual meeting than in an actual physical situation? Well, the Ayr Rotarians had a good try at it when nine individuals “volunteered” to try their luck at convincing fellow members of the veracity of some outrageous stories in the manner of the popular TV series “Would I Lie to You?”. Dubious locations ranged from the Royal Brunei Golf Club to a radio station studio in Luxembourg and tricky situations from bodies slipping out of coffins during sea burials to impersonation of a twin sibling on a road offence charge. The liars won hands down which is probably not exactly the sort of characteristic which is normally associated with a Rotarian. Perhaps our vetting procedures need tightening.
