For instance, on 3 separate occurrences I passed lie detector tests asserting that I had not been using the Internet while on parole. Though, to be fair to the polygrapher, I was only only on 6 or 7 days a week, usually. But seriously, I think I should be given a refund due to the fact that none of his tests came out accurately.

I know lie detector tests are inaccurate and can be fooled so in knowing this I could I believe cheat one. I have studied self hypnosis and I know I can keep my heartbeat and breathing steady with controlled thinking so it is very possible to do this but you have to have the able to control your emotions and physical reactions to questions and I believe I have that ability. It's all in your mind as they say.

No, all you have to do is bite the back of your tongue and stop breathing for about 4 seconds immediately after answering the control question. (You'll know it's the control question because, well, it's the very first and very last question asked and it's a fact based question that they already know the answer to. In my case, it was "Do you live in the United States.")

They measure whether you're lying or not based on if your heartbeat/pulse goes up after answering a question. But if you falsely elevate them when answering the question they know you're telling the truth to, then it won't matter if they go up on other questions because it will look just like it did when they know you were being honest.

Unless you were really scared shitless about something, I suppose. Or were like the one guy that just walked into the office and told the polygrapher that he had just molested his niece two days prior, without even being asked. If the dumbass had just told his PO the day before, he could have saved himself $250 for the polygraph test.

I'd just make myself numb inside to all emotion and I've done that so many times in the past it's kind of like flicking a switch to not give a shit mode. My heartbeat would remain steady no matter what question they asked.

The only problem would be asking me a question I would have to lie to to get an idea of what my heartrate was when I lied since I would have to mentally prepare to control my heart for a minute or 2 and it takes a little while to get back to my normal state. When my heartrate didn't rise on the lie answer they would realize I could pass or just no register no matter what they asked me so they would know that with me the test could not be trusted.

No they wouldn't. I was told by 3 different people within the parole office that it's impossible to fake the results of a polygraph test.

(To be completely honest, there was *one* time that I found a pay site that purported to have child pornography on it, it was offline within 24 hours.)

Anybody that says they accidentally got child pornography on their computer is completely full of shit.

I wasn't interested in holding anything over your head, and I'm not sure which board you're referring to. I found out in the process of trying to get rid of some confusion in my head. The thing was, I vaguely recalled someone on one of the forums I've visited over the years as having stolen a car, and I figured it was you when I misinterpreted this post of yours.

I asked if that was the case in this post, but in your reply you claimed that your incarceration was due to being busted downloading material from Kazaa.

That left me puzzled and suspicious, because I thought people caught file-sharing usually got sued in civil court by the MPAA or RIAA, not criminally prosecuted. I thought I would have remembered hearing of a file-sharing case like that. So I Googled, expecting to find a car theft record, and instead found the child pornography charge. I wasn't sure what to make of that, however, since under MO law, one can be convicted for child pornography if one possesses "obscene material portraying what appears to be a minor under the age of eighteen"; the statute doesn't appear to specify that the minor even has to be real, meaning much hentai would count. Or it could have been that you had pictures of a 17-year-old girlfriend.

It was also during that search that I came across that picture I posted in the other thread where you-said you were non-white, in defense of your having trollifically used the word "nigger". Remembering it, I searched for it again to post it.

And that's how I became the prince of a town called Bel-Air.

Those laws have made the child pornography laws kind of a joke since they have tried to prosecute obvious non kiddie porn fakes as kiddie porn and cartoons/hentai. For just an example putting one of the Olson twins face when they were younger on an obviously adult but naked flat chested woman. It is in fact not child pornography, but according to those laws appears to be, so it is child porn under these overly reaching laws.

I believe the supreme court finally ruled that appears is to broad a term and does not protect actual children while it enables prosecuting actual non pedophiles possessing material though questionable in taste is not actually true kiddie porn.

There goes my hope of it just being a matter of borderline or accidental stuff, I guess.
Not to beat a dead horse, or to be a dick (I mean, after all, you already did your time I guess), just... ...I hope you're finished with pursuing that particular interest, now? (I don't think it's a terribly unfair question to ask; you were the one who brought up the subject of your record, after all.)

Not that you would be likely to incriminate yourself in any case... so I don't really even know what sort of peace of mind I'm hoping to get from any reply. (Not to mention, half of your non-ROM-hacking posts are facetious or trolling anyway, so it can be difficult at times to know what to take at face value.)
