Detecting Lies

There is a very simple technique to detect many types of lie. Simply ask yourself, Is there any way this person could have come across this information from a reliable source? When people tell you about super-secret conspiracies, what the Pentagon is up to, what a politician plans to do, what the police have discovered in their investigations, there is obviously not much chance they would be privy to such information.
