Gratuitous Randomness: You're a Liar

criminal-crying.jpg
In every romantic comedy, it all starts with a lie: a little lie that leads to zany antics, which in turn lead to more elaborate lies, which in turn lead to madcap misunderstandings, which in turn lead to love. And isn't that what it's all about? So today, because we care -- and also because it's Wednesday, the day that we bring you the best of our weird internets world in the form of images loosely related to whatever topic we happen to come up with -- we bring you this Forensic Psychology infographic about "How to Spot A Liar," which we interpret as "Avoid these Things to Become a Better Liar." Let the wacky shenanigans ensue.

When I took my forensic psychology courses, we learned to identify and pinpoint key mannerisms that can only suggest lying. So to say that these tactics can tell you for sure a person is lying is naive. Other than that, cute article.

I really liked this, despite the ignorant comments. Is there any way I can download this as a PDF?

It's all just a bunch of crap.

I am pretty sure that truthful people that have non english native language would reply as in 1.a. and 1.b.

Yeah, see, a lot of this describes me to a T. Except I'm not a liar; I'm just autistic. So this is rather annoying.

Looks like a bunch of pseudo-scientific BS. May as well hook them into one of those phrenology apparatuses ans measure their skull for criminal tendencies...

Certain mental/physiological variances make notable exceptions to this. These variances, such as aspergers and autism, were once rare, but are increasing among the US population, so this may become obsolete. OR, or we can just put all aspies and autistics in jail right out if there is a crime in your town.

I see nothing, just white space. Is this a metajoke?

I was just offered a large sum of money from a Nigerian prince, but I'm not sure if it's legit - how can I tell if he's lying in an email??
