Apparently they still use them as part of sex offender treatment programs, to see if the treatment is "working".

Don't those programs also strap sensors to offenders' junk and make them watch porn to see what type turns them on? They don't seem like the most scientific system...


Well, that's not they did to me.  Maybe it varies state to state.

Why TF do you need a polygraph for a fishing contest?  There could be nothing more objective.  You weigh the fish.  If they're worried people are going to the local Piggly Wiggly and buying fish, make 'em fish nekkid.

MnDuffman: It's quite the spectacle.
Fished it twice, didn't catch a thing, watched a third place fish come out of a hole two holes away.

Fark it, I give up. I've been staring at this damn picture for over an hour and I still can't find him. So tell me, just where the hell is Waldo?

capt.hollister: mrmopar5287: Subby, it's a polygraph EXAM. It's not a test. A test is objective with repeatable results. Math is a test because 2+2 will always be 4 and no amount of arguing will ever make 3 or 5 the correct answer.

How about 2+2=22 ?


Don't know, depends on the humor of your polygraph examiner. The one guy who was doing the "calibration" card trick did it by having me write a number from 1 to 10 on a piece of paper where he went through and told me to deny every number he asked. The magic trick was supposed to be him telling me he knew what number I wrote down. He got kinda upset when I showed him the card with π (pi) written on it. He said it wasn't a number I could choose, and I told him he didn't say NATURAL NUMBERS...

FTA: might not have legitimately caught the fish they entered, which earned them first, third and 98th places

They actually suspected the guy that got 98th? I knew competitive fishing could get hardcore, but damn.

Flipping a coin is a better determiner if a person is telling the truth than a polygraph. Polygraphs have been debunked and are less useful than putting a persons' hand on a copy machine preloaded with paper that have truth or lie preprinted on the paper. Call Bunk.
