The Adventures of Baron Munchausen - Dreams Facts

The Adventures of Baron Munchausen - Dreams Facts | Lying | Scoop.it

In the 19th century, a fortress is under siege from the Turkish Army. While the attack is going on, the town's people are in the theatre, watching a play based on the life of notorious tall tale teller Baron Munchausen.

The real Baron Munchausen arrives at the theatre and claims not only to have started the war, but also to be able to save the town from the siege. He encounters only mockery from an incredulous townsfolk who dismiss the Baron and his stories.

The Baron finds an ally, a young girl called Sally, who encourages the Baron to imagine a method to save the city - this involves the Baron locating his four powerful friends by flying to the moon and visiting war god Vulcan under a mountain (where he encounters the pictured Cyclops). He is also swallowed by a large sea monster. The Baron's friends are Bertholdt, who can run faster than a bullet; Albrecht, who is very strong; Adolphus, who can see for miles; and Gustavus who can blow faster than a thousand winds. However, his friends have aged somewhat, and appear reluctant to go into battle. Reunited with his friends, the Baron aims to save the city from the Sultan and his army. But can this really be true?

Burlington Liars Club

Burlington Liars Club | Lying | Scoop.it

Otis Hulett, who was famous around Burlington for his various pranks and escapades, concocted a news story. Between Christmas and New Years, it is a really slow time news-wise, and the old-timers concocted a story saying the Burlington Chief of Police, Frank Beller, policemen, and firemen sat around the station New Year's Day seeing who could tell the biggest lie. The winner that year was told by police chief who said he had never told a lie in his life. The story made some of the newspapers, and the following year, Associated Press called and wanted to know if they were going to pick a liar again.
The lies continued to pour in each year. Hulett formed a club, incorporated it, and expanded the contest to a national level, and eventually a world wide contest with lies coming in with international addresses. The only requirement to become a card carrying member was to send in a lie and a dime. Inflation has raised the one-time fee to a dollar. It was Hulett's perserverance that kept the club going the first fifty years. He read every lie and responded to every request for membership. This practice is continued today by the current officers of the Club.
