Not a Liar
At the heart of much speculative fiction (and fiction in general) is a question. What if? On Tuesdays I like to throw one out there and see what you make of it. Do with it as you please. If a for-instance is not specified, feel free to interpret that instance as you wish. And if you find this becomes a novel-length answer, I'd appreciate a thank you in the acknowledgements ;)
Not sure why lying is suddenly on my radar. Perhaps I watch too many TV shows where main characters lie. Or perhaps the students' usual MO has gotten to me. Anyway...
What if you found yourself unable to utter a lie?
(Yes, I know there was that one Jim Carrey movie with this as the premise.)
