So I’m procrastinating the crap out of my evening, not doing laundry, not cleaning up in anticipation of my mother-in-law’s impending visit, and I’m watching a little TV.
I’m watching “Medium”,
doing the usual: wondering how Patricia Arquette is so damned cute, despite that weird, cross-eyed, snaggle-toothed thing she’s got going on, and trying not to be insanely covetous of her character’s perfect husband, Joe.
Tonight’s outing involved Patricia’s psychic character, Alison, becoming a “human lie detector”. She hears a loud, game-show buzz in her head, every time someone lies to her.
Annoying as shit as a plot device. But interesting, nonetheless.
If you could, would you?
Would you want to know, with 100 % certainty, every single time, whether or not you were being lied to? Would you need to make a distinction between the big lies, and the little ones?
Would anyone want to hang out with you, once they figured out you had this ability?
Is your bullshit tolerance as high as you think it is?
