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.
Judge Tu Pham ruled in a Tennessee court that functional magnetic resonance imaging was not scientifically established enough to be used as evidence in a fraud case. Phew. We thought we were actually going to have to start telling the truth.
Imagine a world without lies.
