My friend is conducting some basic research on how well women and men can tell when someone's lying. You basically look at some short video clips and tell it which of the three things the person said was a lie. The "two truths and a lie" thing, but with video.

In order to maintain some form of research accuracy, it won't tell you which ones were true and which were lies right away, but she's said she'll post the results once enough people have taken it.

It only takes a few minutes... if you're bored and can watch a few very short videos and guess at the lies, it'd be awesome!

Help a sister out! (My friend, that is.)

Will you believe whatever they tell you about which ones or how many you got right?

She'll post the answers next week. Doesn't want to skew the results.

Specious arguments are not proof of trollish intent.

Oh right, like I'll remember to tune in next week to see if that girl REALLY has a Welsh Corgi dog....

Tell whomever that they misspelled "confirmation" on the first page. I suppose if it were also misspelled on the final page it wouldn't be so bad, but now there's not only a misspelling, but an inconsistency. This could invalidate the whole study!

OK, WTF is up with the "What race do you identify with" Question? Why is every race "non-Hispanic"? Are there Hispanic Asians I just don't know about? Are the Hispanics trying to take over the world? Seems a very odd way to ask such question...

Hispanic has NOTHING to do with race - Hispanic is an ethnicity. So to answer your smart-alecky question, yes there can be Hispanic and non-Hispanic Asians (guess which there are more of).
