SIX FOOT TWO EYES OF BLUE

When we are asked to reveal our height and weight, most of us tell a bald lie. These fabrications are not limited to one gender or ethnic group. Almost all of us tell others we are slightly taller and weigh slightly less than we really do, reports LiveScience.com. A study found men in all ethnic groups overestimate their height by a half-inch, on average. While black men slightly overestimate their weight, all other ethnic groups of men underestimate how much they weigh. Women in all ethnic groups overestimate their height by a third of an inch, on average. While all women underestimate their weight, black women shave off the most pounds -- on average, 3.8 pounds. Women lie to their man for several reasons, but primarily to protect his feelings or save her butt.

The top four lies women tell, according to Dr. Phil:
I'm fine. There's nothing wrong.
Oh, this isn't new! I've had this old thing forever.
Oh, this was cheap! I got it on sale.
I've got a headache.

The top four lies men tell, according to Dr. Phil:
I'm fine. There's nothing wrong.
This is my last drink.
No, that doesn't make you look fat.
Hey, I'm on the way! (But he's not even almost on the way.)
