That's not news to any of you because we are all well aware that evolutionary forces make us accomplices. We collude with liars because our brains are programmed to lie to ourselves and others by the age of 4.
I had the pleasure of watching The Truth About Liars...it was fascinating..and I'm not lying..check it out HERE .
"The Truth About Liars concludes with one essential choice we all face -
Armed Forces 65%
Financial Advisors 47%
Real Estate Agents 28%
National Politicans & Car Salespeople 7%
If you have ever used Photoshop or a similar program you know that you can create very convincing images, my dragonhorse thingamabob or the wood-choppens deception in my previous post are poor examples but there are other more technically proficient manipulators out there who can fool your peepers.
Which is why I don't believe anything that I see.
If you've been to a Movie Theatre in the last 20 years you are well aware that you can't believe your eyes anymore..seeing is NOT believing. Special effects wizards can perform virtual miracles. I keep this in mind whenever I watch the News on TV.
So we cannot trust our eyes OR our ears.
I have no idea of knowing how many modern recording artists make use of AUTO-TUNE which is sneaky software that provides pitch correction, timing, vibrato depth, and timbral variation, and allows ANY singer to sound perfect in the studio and during "LIVE" performances.
Personally I would not feel cheated at a concert if they were auto-tuning because if I paid $200 I expect the artist to sound amazing even if they've been on tour for the last three decades.
Believe it or not, some "singers" no longer attempt to disguise this practice.
So, if we cannot rely on our eyes and ears, we had better make damn sure that our nose still knows when we smell a rat or utter bullsh*t!
Homo Escapeons desperately need to fine-tune their Extrasensory Perception (ESP). "The ability to acquire information by paranormal means independent of any known physical senses or deduction from previous experience" needs to become standard operating equipment for modern 21st Century Earthlings.
Just exactly how awesome is your BS detector? How about your other forms of ESP? Can you still smell a rat? Are you a sucker or a deceiver? How much of your Blogospherian persona is LYING?
