Million Dollar Lies
I’ve been watching a lot of true crime shows lately. I don’t particularly enjoy them, but the Youtube algorithm has decided that I do, so I often end up playing them when I’m not sure what to watch.
I’m not very interested in serial killers. I’m interested in watching flawed, yet quasi-regular people put their fingers in a machine that ends up swallowing them up whole. Telling a small lie, defending it with a bigger one, and so on and so on until bad things happen.
Telling lies to escape a minor inconvenience is like contracting a 10 million dollars debt to pay a 40 dollars bill.
