Yes, I admit it has been a long time since my last newsletter. But I am sure you are as busy as I am, so you may not even have noticed! Too much cruising and too much fun! Because of time constraints, I may not necessarily send my newsletter on a regular basis in the future. It will depend on my schedule... and my mood.
If you have to deal with liars around you, keep reading and you will probably learn a few things and a few signs about lying.
In case you are interested in palm reading, visit my new website on this topic and read about the hands of famous people.
As always, don't hesitate to drop me a line about this issue or the previous ones. Back issues can be found here.

Way of the Mind's Article: Signs of Lying – How to Catch a Liar?

Reading the signs of lying is not an exact science, but it may still help. After an extensive research, I have come up with a relative exhaustive listing, even though I may have missed some!
Before you use this information to catch a liar, there are a few caveats. To ascertain a person is lying, you need to identify several signs of lying, not just one. One sign by itself won’t be enough. For instance, many of those signs express emotions, such as fear or anger, which may be present even if the person is telling the truth. So be very careful before drawing any conclusions.
Also, you are never going to see all - or even most - of the numerous clues identified here. So just use your personal judgment.
Physical Signs of Lying
1. The liar has difficulty swallowing. You can hear it in his speech, or see it on his throat.
2. He is displaying a forced smile pasted on his face.
3. The liar is making a gesture that doesn’t match the speech. For instance, he is frowning while saying something pleasant.
4. Instead of being natural, his gestures appear stiff or mechanical, as if you were watching a bad actor!

Mind Boggling
For the Love of Chocolate
The Mexican chief Montezuma considered chocolate a "love drug" and drank 50 cups of chocolate a day before visiting his harem of 600 women.

Mind Games
At midnight on Sunday, December 31st, Professor Chronos set two of his analogue clocks to the correct time. One of his clocks gains one minute every hour and the other clock loses two minutes every hour.

1. When will the clocks next show the same time as each other?
2. When will the clocks both show the correct time?

You will find the solution in the next issue of With You in Mind but you still have one month to think about it!

Solution of last newsletter's Mind Game:
What percentage of the total blood produced by the body actually supplies the heart?
Five percent of blood supplies the heart, 15-20% goes to the brain and central nervous system, and 22% goes to the kidneys.

Mind Tickle
You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jellybeans. - Ronald Reagan
