Why not use its full potential?

B.B. King gets instant analysis on his blood levels. (5 seconds, he says)

Suspected pregnancies confirmed or denied in minutes.

Body temperature established with a modern instrument inserted in the ear for a few moments.

Blood pressure reading from a finger.

Palm prints for entry into security guarded quarters.

Identification based on the iris of the human eye.

Voice test for determining truth or fiction.

And the list of questions answered by modern technology goes on and on and on, ad infinitum.

"Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that [party[ or that [party] can long endure." Both Democrat and Republican parties accuse the other of lies and distortions, conspiracies and treason. Available technology could settle such conflicts with a simple test. The "liars" would decline to take the test. The truth-tellers would volunteer to be tested. That should pretty much settle a given issue - unless, of course, the ACLU got into the mix.

[Both of the above references would be ideal examples of the efficacy of a "who's lying?" test. I think a "chip" may work well.]


Three old guys are out walking. First one says, "Windy, isn't it?"
Second one says, "No, its Thursday!"
Third one says, "So am I. Let's go get a beer."

The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.

One of the many things no one tells you about aging is that it is such a nice change from being young. Being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable.
