      ooh, tough one @tiggerific!

      Without torture, I would suggest logically unpicking their argument. Consider the process of going from A to B to C. Lying is not an easy skill and generally when unpicked, there will be a logical problem somewhere along the line.

      We should remember though that sometimes we simply get confused. So we might get something wrong but that does not mean we are lying.
