I think Stovie is one of those people who get their jollies by taking the devils advocate position just to watch other people freak out. I've met guys in my life that tell all sortsa stories that they know are not true, but you can't prove them wrong, because you have no way of doing so. I really have no use for that type of person. I can't imagine what sorta shallow minded hell they must live with in their own skulls thinking they are better than all that because they made you believe a lie, and now think you're stupid for trusting them so much.
