More Rantings From a Nutjob

In an attempt to refute the irrefutable, William R. Lyne has posted some more incredible tales. He writes:

The most assinine thing is trying to prove that I didn't attend law school for a year, to "prove" I am a "liar".

He then goes on to give yet another preposterous story of a chain of events that supposedly happened to him. Not once in his whole tale does he address the fact that the U.T. School of Law HAS ABSOLUTELY NO RECORDS OF HIM EVER ATTENDING! Instead, consistant with the symptoms of a pathological liar, he talks about how so many famous people knew him and liked him, and goes on constantly bragging about his "intelligence." Similar to all his other fantasies, he claims that there was an entire event where prestigious teachers tried to convince him to "come back" to law school - as if he were that important. He even claims the Governor of Texas got involved! LOL!!!!

And all of this despite the fact that records prove he was never even at the University of Texas! What happened William, did the government "steal" your records???!

And lastly, he continues, post after post, to brag about his "intelligence." Listen to the old fool's egotism:

When I graduated from art with my MFA ("Master of Fine Arts", which is a professional "terminal degree", higher than a MA, meaning that there is no higher) my GPA average was the highest of any graduate student in art in the history of the University of Texas.

Not only is self-conceit a for sure sign of some type of lying disease, it is also a symptom of Narcissistic personality disorder, many symptoms of which accurately describe Lyne to a tee.
Here is the diagnostic criteria for this MENTAL DISORDER:

A pervasive pattern of grandiosity (in fantasy or behavior), need for admiration, and lack of empathy, beginning by early adulthood and present in a variety of contexts, as indicated by five (or more) of the following:

1. has a grandiose sense of self-importance (e.g., exaggerates achievements and talents, expects to be recognized as superior without commensurate achievements)

2. is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love

3. believes that he or she is "special" and unique and can only be understood by, or should associate with, other special or high-status people (or institutions)

4. requires excessive admiration

5. has a sense of entitlement, i.e., unreasonable expectations of especially favorable treatment or automatic compliance with his or her expectations

6. is interpersonally exploitative, i.e., takes advantage of others to achieve his or her own ends

7. lacks empathy: is unwilling to recognize or identify with the feelings and needs of others

8. is often envious of others or believes that others are envious of him or her

9. shows arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes
