Your Nose Gets Warmer When You Lie

According to a study out of Spain, you can tell if someone is lying by paying attention to their NOSE.  They call it the “Pinocchio Effect” . . . but your nose doesn’t get bigger, just warmer.  Scientists looked at thermal images of people’s faces, and found that their noses and the corners of their eyes got warmer when they lied . . . and colder when they were doing a difficult mental task.
