Well I would just say digressing, (to I am also prone) ;

seem to remember some 'curious ' soul;
who found an image of a tangent to a circle,
absolutely hilarious !

For some reason we don't seem to recognise that 'lies' as intentional
are really quite a small subset of the untruths, that humans
For some reason lying is considered extremely evil; whilst unknowingly
telling untruths merely unfortunate;
even though it is often far from clear ,which is the case !
Obviously sometimes we can be sure our politicians know they are telling
but an assumption that they " are existing in a defactualized world"
seems fairly safe,
and those not post-modern; simply deluded ?
