You know that Naked Cowboy guy who hangs out in his tighty whities in Times Square taking photos with tourists and singing for his supper? Well, apparently he guards his brand and Image like a mother falcon guards her fledgling chicks.

Pretty soon you might be losing your money to a machine at the bar other than a jukebox. The folks at Willow Garage, a robotics development firm, have programmed their PR2 to play billiards. So what do you think? Could you beat the PR2 or would it take the shirt off of your back?

Yesssss! We can still lie and get away with it.

Our fibbing days seemed to be almost over. Federal courts were about to allow new brain-scanning technology, effectively killing, in one fell swoop, the entire art of bullshitting.

Then a savior put his foot down.

Imagine a world without lies.
