Very True

Today I heard someone say that something was “very true…”

Huh? Maybe it’s my roots in programming, you know, binary has it’s 1’s and 0’s. Success and failure. True and false. And so on, and so on…

So how can something be very true? I suppose it’s just like “lying a little bit” or being “slightly false” or maybe “close enough!”

Crazy non-programmers. You can’t lie to a compiler!
