Re: The Bret thing
Same AC here (honest! But unverifiable)
I was saying "I don't remember anything about him lying" and mentioning BBC news so someone could go "here: https://news.bbc.co.uk/whatever " and I could then see "oh shit yeah he did do that...."
The credible thing was about "okay so she's the right age, was in the area at the time" - as surely any girl not born then, in college at the opposite side of the states, ect ect that should be "dubious" at the least (they might travel, but you see what I mean, same school same time does not rule it out, where as "so she travels all that way while a student..." is more ruley-outy and worth asking her "so what brought you there?" ect ect)
