Faking It

Can they see you know nothing?

Fingers crossed behind back, holding a sign that says ME.

Making It

The lie becomes the truth.

A poster saying 'Truth' but it's pealed and faded.

Why Me?

Why would anyone be here?

A view from a stage of an empty theater.

Why Us?

Actually this is all about me.

A hand with 'About me' written on the palm.

Fact One:

Everyone's bluffing about something.

People playing poker and a bright blue bear holding chips.

Fact Two:

Some people ARE smarter and/or better than you are.

A math problem that is incomplete so it looks unsolvable.

Fact Three:

Sometimes it's just in your head.

A person with a bad headache, holding their hand to their head.

Fact Four:

Just because it's all in your head doesn't mean it's all in your head

A body with no head, just to illustrate things.

Fact Five:

It's okay to say you don't know

Grafitti reading 'you don't know....'

Fact Five:

It's not about what you know but how you know

Walnut with a fortune saying 'Use Your Brain.'
