We haven't been able to rightly determine that.......While true that at least SOME of the points on this line "lie," a recent polygraph has shown that, indeed, other points tend to tell the truth - at least, most of the time. One should remember though, that "Poly Graph" evidence isn't usually seen by the court system as being as reliable as "Cartesian Graph" evidence, so the jury is still out - so to speak......

Well.....excuse me now......I have to move on to an equally pressing problem of trying to determine the number of drops of water contained by the Pacific Ocean......my working hypothesis is that we can put them in a perfect one-to-one correspondence with the "lying" points on this line, but only for a short while......Global Warming will eventually win out and the Pacific will be bone-dry within 5 years......(If my calculations are correct!....)
