Weaknesses of Lies

Today, I remembered an story I heard in university:

Four students arrived late to a test, and for this reason, they invented a lie to convince teacher to give them another opportunity. What they invented was car got a flat tire.

When they they said it to the teacher, he answers them he will forgive them, but he wants to ask something private to each one, and students agreed.

When he was in private with one of them he asked "Which was the flat tire?"
Each of them answered different, and the teacher knew that was a lie.

A lie needs coordination. This entry is related to lies, too.
