SF Drabble #146 “Where Were You On The Night Of”

I know what you’re thinking, Steve; no, I’m not telepathic. Psi powers aren’t real. Everybody knows that. But like the man said, any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. The computer analyzes the data those sensors are collecting for more than two hundred thirty metrics. It knows your heart rate, and what your glands are doing. It sees patterns in your brainwaves. And it tells me all about it. Not in so much data, of course. It just comes up on the screen, “Subject is lying.”

So, Steve: how about we try this again, from the beginning, okay? Great.
