Body odor. The smell of fear

Body odor. The smell of fear | Lying and Deception | Scoop.it

I saw this on Fox News's site but I decided to look elsewhere for corroboration. Scientists affiliated with Homeland Security are trying to determine if body odor can give away if someone is lying. (non verbal deception detection)

The Birds and the Bees

The Birds and the Bees | Lying and Deception | Scoop.it

Let me tell ya bout the birds and the bees as the old saying goes. This is the age-old expression for sugar-coating sex to young children. Though actual ornithology and entomology terms aren't used anymore, the expression still has meaning.

There's the truth.....

One of my favorite moments from The Simpsons. Marge is selling real estate but doing badly because she is a bit too honest for her company's taste. Here she gets a quick lesson from resident show shyster Lionel Hutz.

Fox News Alters Photos of Rivals

Fox News Alters Photos of Rivals | Lying and Deception | Scoop.it

I found this when doing a speech on Fox News channel. Though this could fall under Digital Deception as well, I chose it for Ethics. This was just plain wrong that a so-called 'news' channel could stoop to this level, based on what they percieved as an attack by the New York Times.

Banzai Slide 'N Splash Whale Pool Box Vs. Reality - The Consumerist | Lying and Deception | Scoop.it

This is one of several backyard watertoys made by Banzai. They have been caught using Photoshop on their packaging to dupe consumers into making toys appear larger than they are. Notice the box, and notice what seem to be a gigantic 7 year old next to the actual toy. These toys sell on EBAY (no refunds) and Amazon(Digital Deception)

He's a pitcher, part yogi and part recluse.

He's a pitcher, part yogi and part recluse. | Lying and Deception | Scoop.it

This story ran in Sports Illustrated in April (1) of 1985. It was written by well respected author George Plimpton, and I can remember my father being fooled by it as well as I. It was the story of a New York Mets pitching prospect who threw well over 100 mph, aided by his height and unusual technique. He practiced meditation, and  had a strange background (the orphaned son of an archeologist). The sub heading was 'He's a pitcher, part yogi and part recluse. Impressively liberated from our opulent life-style, Sidd's deciding about yoga'. The first letters of this spell Happy April Fools day. (Hoax)

Videotaped Beating Mom In More Trouble - CBS News

Videotaped Beating Mom In More Trouble - CBS News | Lying and Deception | Scoop.it

This brought infamy to our little burg, as Madelyne Toogood was caught beating her child on camera at the Kohl's on Grape Road in Mishawaka, and became the subject of  nationwide scorn.  Toogood was part of a group of Irish Travellers, modern day gypsys that prey on the elderly with roofing and driveway scams. I had personal experience with her and her family, as they would come into the restaurant where I worked. They would come in 30 at a time, taking upwards of 10 tables. One of their group would complain of finding something in their food (glass, hair, chipped tooth) and try to leave without paying. Both  my boss and I recognized her as soon as her mugshot hit the airwaves. (deceiving)

The Danny Almonte Scandal | Lying and Deception | Scoop.it

Little League phenom Danny Almonte mowed down the competition on the way to a perfect game in the Little League World Series for his New York City team in 2001. It turns out there was a reason he was so good..he was two years older than the rest of his fellow players, therefore too old for Little League.

True Romance - Sicilians

This is a classic movie scene from True Romance written by Quentin Tarantino. The gist is Christopher Walken's mobster character is trying to find Dennis Hopper's son, who has absconded with a suitcase full of cocaine. Caccardia (Walken) claims he know all the tells and techniques of liars, due to his father being the 'world champion of Sicilian Liars'. (NSFW language)
