R Craig's uncle Clive got caught in storm while cod fishing several years ago and was stranded on a remote island. After seven years on the island, a bottle washed up on shore. While cleaning the bottle, a genie appear to grant him 3 wishes. After 7 years, he said he would like a cigarette so the genie produced a pack of Export plain from her bag. For his second wish he asked for a bottle of Screech which again was taken from her bag. The genie reminded him he had left a third and final wish and she suggested she may know what a man stranded on an island for 7 years may want and she gave him a wick and asked if he would like to go for a round. Clive looked at the genie and said, 'don't tell me you have a bag of golf clubs in her bad as well'.

How to Spot a Liar - TED Talk
R Ricardo and R Emily reviewed several TED Talks before settling on this one.
Pamela Meyer, author of Lie Spotting and TED Talk, How to Spot a Liar.
'lying is a cooperative act'. We agree to believe.
Not all lies are harmful, some we say for social dignity / graces. We all lie.
We may want to learn to spot a liar so that we can get to the truth.
Lies - deception. A notorious con artist said that everyone wants something. We believe the lie to get what we want.
We are lied to everyday, 10 to 200 times each day. We lie more to strangers.
We live in a 'post truth' society.
Spotting a lie through language used, body language. We can fake a smile of the mouth, but a real smile is seen in the eyes and that cannot be faked.
There are things we can learn to help us spot a lie, but being curious and asking questions helps, but not too aggressively.
