It seems standard practice for many people to mislead
others, and that's terrible. I'm tired of dealing with car
salesmen, consultants from the disreputable firms,
advertising, and politicians.
Let's fix this with science.
I propose the widespread distribution of technology to
monitor how honest other people are
Create a cheap lie or half-truth detector that can be
to new acquaintances with the expectation that they will
this, giving you a constant read-out of their level of
deception, because if they don't wear your sensor, they
clearly are hiding something.

||This is very WIBNI - i.e. a //cheap lie or half-truth
detector//. Why not simply ask for a "make
everything great" machine?
||Or is this meant to be a dummy device, which only
honest people will agree to wear?
||I'm wearing one now. Trust me.
||Do you really 'want' to know that someone else is telling the truth for sure though? See, 'that's' the question... what do you do with the info if it doesn't exactly fit the criteria/s hoped for.
||This is a great idea except for the idea part.
