Depends, lie tell tales work on 'normal' people, not on pathological; and trained liars.
Hmmm. Well not all crooks are pathological liars but a lot are. Still. In Australia a lie detector has no evidentiary value in the courts exactly due to your point.

You can make the truth look like a lie just by simply saying something in a different way. You ask the wrong questions you make it easier to misguide the truth. There is a huge difference when you say I can walk on water when you really mean you can walk on ice if you think of water as both. Training and/or being clever can beat any lie test.

Lol my nose gets warm when I drink and drinking tends to make me exaggerated things more often so they maybe on to something :P

Now if they can get C-Span to use this technology and broadcast a picture in picture of this, watching congressmen talk could get real interesting.

Interesting topic... I wonder how the law would use this new information on human physiology since the current lie detectors results are inadmissable in US courts.


Seems like this type of lie detector can also be beat if one has been drinking and the nose gets warm... lol   Then again, I've been known to spew unnecessary truths while inebriated anyway. :blush:

as soon s they find a way to tell if a person is lying, someone starts finding a way to get around it.
i read a case of a guy who had put tacks inside his shoes to mess up the polygraph results. he could somehow manipulate his reading by causing pain to his feet.

don't remember the name of the guy, but he's not the only one who had done it. any type of detection is going to have it's downfalls, unless one can read minds.
there seems to be a shortage of psychic people working in law enforcement...
