However, are humans the only species in the animal kingdom that are capable of deceptive behaviour? Apparently not. Many primates, especially the common chimpanzee Pan troglodytes , display the ability to intentionally engage in deceptive behaviour in order to attain competitive advantages. A large pool of evidence has been accumulated which details the use of deception by nonhuman primates. Such acts range from the simple in the example of a chimpanzee purposely leading its troop away from a hidden food stash so that it may have all the food to itself to the relatively complex a subordinate chimpanzee exploiting the fear of darkness of a superior chimpanzee in order to stop its bullying behaviour. All these behaviours share the common attribute of providing a benefit to the agent committing deception; Benefits that enhance the survivability of the agents.
From the beginning of my life with animals I have seen parallels between their behavior and that of the people around me. I have seen them form friendships, show empathy, and grieve lost loved ones. Fortunately for me, the animals, and mankind at large, science had a change of heart and is now proving that animals are as behaviorally and emotionally complex as we are. Or, put another way — we are not as complex and unique as we once believed! A long held popular belief, particularly among the uber animal lover set, has been that our beloved animals are not capable of intentionally bad behavior. I have seen animals kill for joy, not for food. If you accept that they are complex individuals, living in complicated societies, then you have to also accept that intentional bad behavior is a possibility.
The night we were supposed to meet for our first date about a month ago, I did some Facebook stalking. Hey, he did it first and basically suggested I do the same! I believed it, I believed it all. Yes, I feel like an idiot for typing that sentence. But so I sent it and he accepted. My jaw dropped and then my stomach dropped.

Top definition. Liar Liar Pants On Fire unknown. Liar Liar Pants On Fire is a phrase that children like to scream at each other whenever they think the other is lying. They also like to scream it at adults who tell them stories about fairies. It is an overall stupid thing to say, since if your pants actually caught on fire when you lied , more politicians would be dead. Adult : Shut the fuck up.
