Lying? Your face will give you away: study
Post Date: 2008-04-25 07:16:31 by A K A Stone
NEW YORK (Reuters Life!) - Liars might think they are good at covering up their deceit but a new Canadian study shows there's one thing they can't control that will give them away -- flashes of emotion in their faces. ADVERTISEMENT
Researchers at Dalhousie University's Forensic Psychology Lab in Halifax conducted the first detailed study on the secrets revealed when people put on a false face or inhibit various emotions, and found their faces told the truth.
But instead of clues like shifty eyes or sweaty brows, their expression would crack briefly, allowing displays of true emotions such as happiness, sadness, disgust and fear to come through.

What a mess. I'm sitting on the floor of my apartment, surrounded by electronic parts, a cigar box, a soldering gun, and stray bits of wire. I'm trying to build my own steampunk-style clock hacking a couple of volt meter dials to display hours and minutes. It'll look awesome when it's done. If it ever gets done I keep botching the soldering. A well-soldered joint is supposed to look like a small, shiny volcano. My attempts look like mashed insects, and they crack when I try to assemble the device. Why am I so inept? I used to do projects like this all the time when I was a kid. But in high school, I was carefully diverted from shop class when the ...
Ten ways to thwart Big Brother
Post Date: 2007-10-29 22:48:10 by A K A Stone
We live in the most watched-over society in Europe. Exposure, especially in The Observer, has done little to hold the state and private sector in check. Phone records have become police records, as Henry Porter pointed out in this paper last week, and CCTV camera records are now fed into the automatic registration number computer. Credit and store-card records have become marketing records and our email addresses are points of entry for all sorts of crime and spam. It's time to fight back using all the legal means at our disposal. We need to duck under the radar of government surveillance, credit-checking agencies, internet and mobile phone companies or the DVLA. I have been learning ...

I have created the following masks in order to allow *anyone* to quickly fetch any EU (or United Nations') document, bypassing the labyrinthical slowness of the EU-servers and the clumsiness of their slow search engines. To know HOW TO QUICKLY FIND *any* legislation piece is part of the cosmic power of the seekers, and the EU proposals, directives and regulations have binding legislative power in 25 european states. Hence they MUST be translated in all their (20) languages. This is of PARAMOUNT importance for seekers because it opens an incredible wealth of human made (non machine) TRANSLATIONS. ...

20 ways to become a sex goddess
Post Date: 2006-07-09 11:57:50 by Jhoffa_
20 ways to become a sex goddess Lately the term femme fatale has been falling out of circulation. It is small wonder since todays woman is far too tired to play that role after a 10-hour work day, not to mention the regular household duties e.g. cleaning and cooking. It is pretty regretful that women have stopped using her charms altogether. Now it is time to dust off a few things nature endowed the woman with: Say a few words to your partner before going to bed. Any words will do, sex innuendoes are not necessarily required. But try and say those words in a real sexy voice, sounding low and somewhat smutty. Do not wear your pajamas or nightshirt after taking a bath or shower. Just ...
Fake Army Ranger Outs Himself At FR
Post Date: 2006-06-25 21:27:16 by continental op
In my time here on FR, I claimed to have served in the US Army Rangers. While I served in the Army from 1988 until 1991, I was a 31K (Combat Signalman), never a Ranger. I never served in a Ranger Unit. I served with 11th Air Defense Artillery out of Ft. Bliss. I won't get into why, how I came to do what I did. To do so would be to make excuses or to try to make a justification for what there is none. To do so would cause more offense to those I have offended by my actions. Instead I offer a deeply humble apology and stand ready to deservedly recieve any ridicule thrown my way. I say only this, I have never said one ill word against the Rangers I so longed to be, the Army in which I ...
SKINNING AND FUR HANDLING
Post Date: 2006-06-14 22:28:35 by A K A Stone
Proper fur handling is very important. It can bring much personal satisfaction from doing a job well and it can also result in a better price from the fur buyer. Fur handling starts at the trap site. If trapped in the water, the fur bearer should be rinsed clean of any mud or vegetation. Next, attempt to remove as much excess water as possible. Muskrat can be held by the head and shaken to remove much of the water. Fur bearers can be stroked with your hand from the head to the tail to squeeze out water, or rolled in dry snow to clean and soak up excess water. In cold weather, do not lay a wet animal on ice or any metal surface because the guard hairs will freeze to the surface and the pelt ...

Third Time America may be ready for a new political party. Thursday, June 1, 2006 12:01 a.m. EDT Something's happening. I have a feeling we're at some new beginning, that a big breakup's coming, and that though it isn't and will not be immediately apparent, we'll someday look back on this era as the time when a shift began. All my adult life, people have been saying that the two-party system is ending, that the Democrats' and Republicans' control of political power in America is winding down. According to the traditional critique, the two parties no longer offer the people the choice they want and deserve. Sometimes it's said they are too much alike--Tweedledum and Tweedledee.

Build your own stun gun

SLASHDOT -- Mariox19 wonders if people have thought about "what to do with your disposable camera when you're finished with it? TechTV has an article describing how to reach out and zap someone with a home-made stun gun." Now that would be a real Kodak Moment. In his latest Cryptogram, Bruce Schneier half-jokingly warns not to let airport security find out about this, lest they ban cameras along with nail clippers. Accordingly, the first rule of the Home Stun Gun Club is. Don't go telling people about your garage armory--the place with the assorted sledge hammers, nail gun and potato gun. I don't know about hand-rolling a taser from a disposable camera. Compared to a real ...
Backyard aluminum foundry

In the fall of 1998 I built my Coffee Can Foundry. It worked much better than expected and served as a proof of concept test. After the success with the CCF MkI I decided to move up to bigger and better and embarked on the CCF MkII project. Procedure The MkII isn't really a coffee can foundry. The shell is a festive holiday popcorn tin about 10 inches in diameter and 11 inches tall. This was lined with a layer of castable refractory insulation approximately 2" thick. I used a recipe found here to make my own refractory insulation. The Raw Materials The first layer of refractory in the bottom of the foundry body.

How to Ask a Lady Out
Post Date: 2006-02-24 13:24:10 by continental op
Pretty Lady had to chastise the Pundit, once upon a time, not so long ago, whilst the Pundit was still single and actively chasing females on http://Nerve.com. He complained to her, "I get chatting with a woman, and everything seems to be going fine until I give her my phone number. Then things just trail off." Hello? Pretty Lady was momentarily speechless. The Pundit, she thought, had little excuse for this. Pretty Lady met the Pundit once upon a time on http://Nerve.com, in fact, and he was one of the very few gentlemen she accepted into her inner circle. The Pundit is a Real Man, a mature and intelligent soul, and he knows how to treat a lady. The fact that Pretty Lady did ...
