There's certain things people will say that will automatically make you believe the opposite. A classic example of this is anyone going "I'm really funny." You know this person is going to be the exact opposite of funny. About a week ago I'm sitting in a casino bar in Atlantic City at 930am drinking mimosas because 1. They're delicious, 2. They're free and 3. Fuck you, I don't have to explain myself! When in comes a guy complaining how the bar closes for 3 hours every day in the morning. I make the mistake of engaging him in conversation about how in Vegas they always have 1 bar always open. This prompted him to tell me the closing times of every bar in AC casinos because he's there at least once or twice a week and has to add in "I'm not a degenerate or anything." Of course you're not. Another good one was a few years back I'm out having drinks with a friend, her friend and that girl's boyfriend. The guy is purchasing me a disproportionate number of drinks when out of nowhere he goes "so I'm not gay or anything but I have this friend who is a brolic gay dude..." and proceeds to show me pictures of this guy in his underwear for no reason while telling me a story. A few minutes later he goes again "just so you know I'm not gay or anything but I have another friend who is a brolic gay guy..." tells me another story once again while showing me half naked pics of the guy. At this point I tell him to stop showing me pics of guys. He leaves and I tell my friend that he's gay. She insists he isn't because her friend is dating him...3 months later my friend calls me to tell me I was right and he left her for another guy.

Alt Focus: Conversely have you ever heard one of these claims believed it to be bullshit and then proven wrong.
