See now, I am in agreement with Lois McMaster Bujold, when she says 
(through one of her characters in Curse of Chalion) that knowing when 
someone lies isn't always as helpful as you might think. In a test, when 
you can say "that's a lie" it's fine, but mostly you can't actually call 
the person on the lie, even if you are SURE it is one.
