This would be like taking a bucket of sand to the beach. You would just ruin a perfectly good lie detector.

Is it just me or do the masses really care more about the PSI of a football then what the President had to say?

Or is it that both Belichick and Obama should be hooked up to lie detectors??
Belicheat's explanation was more of a nondescript mumbling than anything.

POTUS speeches are a waste anyway, since we all know what he sounds like without his teleprompter.

Yes, the masses care more about football. It is entertaining while the politics are simply lies we have grown to hate.

Lie detectors are for when we think there is a question about whether someone is lying. No questions here.

even if you care about politics, the state of the union is a waste of time. just a bunch of meaningless statements and a lot of applause.

The worst part is that even if we have video evidence of Tom Brady sticking a needle in the balls and deflating them they would just get a fine and lose draft picks. I think they should forfeit the win and not go to the Super Bowl!

Well.
In a country where more people can rattle off the starting line-up and pertinent stats for their favorite team vs. the names of the Supreme Court Justices, it seems pretty clear which has more impact.
