Credibility Problems On Everything But This

If you've been following the trial of Hans Reiser for the murder of his estranged wife, Nina (no body yet, but no Nina either), I hope you've read enough to think the guy's theories just don't sound plausible. All I'm saying is that I think I'd remember where and when I threw out a car seat. Not for kids, like a whole seat out of my car.

But while a lot of his commentary, as relayed in the linked article, makes me think he's an evasive, difficult witness, this part, has a slight ring of truth:

Later, Reiser said, "I am not consistent with my thinking."

"That's a hallmark of lying, isn't it?" the prosecutor asked.

"It's a hallmark of real people," Reiser replied.
