I guess this explains why anytime my ex-husband says anything I'm afflicted by an involuntary eye roll.

Cut to the chase Subby. When you say Washington, you mean Obama, right? Are dumbasses finally figuring out that he is a construct?

My lie detector pegs out every time I hear a politician speak.

/all of them

This is boring, but the article lead me to this:
Many Farkers will need to get their lie detectors recalibrated.

Do you really think Fark is the place to argue that pot makes people violent?

Argue? What argue? Though the bloody knuckles are a good indicator of violence.

The key to a lie is not to say anything too incredulous, even if it is true.

I have a BS in Mechanical Engineering.
I have been a certified Air Traffic Controller.
I paid taxes on $62k last year despite being a total bum.

If I heard three things like that from anyone I'd devalue any of their statements. Hence I try not to talk too much about myself in conversations.

Trayvon had smoked weed or had been near someone who had in the last week? THAT MONSTER.

Yeah, I'd have probably punched the creepy bastard that was following me in a car, THEN ON FOOT.

I actually think you can feel this happening.

Next time someone starts feeding you a line of crap, pay attention to the sensations in your head.

Sometimes it actually HURTS, always in the same place.

We shouldn't be too hasty to take paid scientists' word for this. It's in their interests, after all, to suggest that as a species or a society we're too suspicious about accepting 'credible information' at face value. I think it makes more sense to wait and see the proof, before accepting claims like this just because they're scientists.

My bs detector generally goes off whenever I read the Daily Mail.

Hey look! Another idiot that thinks I care that he had pot in his system. Zimmerman may have been on adderal, too. So what? I'm more interested in Trayvon's knuckles and all the photos of George's injuries. Hell, I was high when I posted the link, jackass.

You also cut off the second part of what I said.

Good for you. Case close, amirite?!

Its really quite simple... If someone is telling you a story, and at the crucial keywords, they look up and over the right, they are lying.

I don't know how well I'd detect lying from strangers, but I have relatives with very distinct patterns that are just hard to miss once you've observed them a few times.

For instance, one, when lying, begins to stutter and say over and over again "Let me
see ..." while otherwise repeating him/herself.

A second can't finish a phrase without saying "Uh, ah".

Then I have the relative that can look a person in the eye and lie with a straight face without a trace of guilt. It is almost as if this person is able to deceive him/herself. The others annoy me at times, but this one scares the Nelly out of me.

Well, mine must be broken, because I am horrible at picking up lies by intuition.

Almost as some sort of defensive instinct, I basically learn everything I can. I can never know too much either. So the way I usually tell if someone is lying is not by how they say it, but what they say. For example, you can perfectly deliver a lie about what your mom was doing last night, but you won't be able to trick me because I know I was banging her.

The only time I can tell if someone is lying is if I have spent lots of time around them. But a good tip for me if a stranger is lying to me is if they use the word trust a lot. "You are going to have to trust me on this...."

I knew an old boss of mine was lying to me that way and if he used trust a lot to me I knew he was lying worse.
