Texas... it's ok to lie every once in awhile.  You can even cheat... you know the old saying, "if you ain't cheating, you ain't trying."  Why am I approving of this behavior?! When in Rome... according to a new study from Solitaire Bliss, Texas was named the number one state for lying and cheating.  How did they come up with this?  Well here's how they got their results...

"We established a series of survey questions that focused on cheating behaviors. We scored each state on these questions to determine a score out of 100. From there, we analyzed the numbers by state and ranked them accordingly. 

We surveyed 1,992 Americans from August 28 to September 5, 2023. Respondents ranged in age from 18 to 76 years old, and were 49% female, 49% male, and 2% nonbinary."
