...Pants on Fire 

Did you know that the word 'gullible' isn't in the dictionary? I swear, go look it up. Some people are gullible, others seem to be able to see through lies with ease. Now, researchers are testing these living lie detectors, to see if they can help police and other officials be better at it too. Thing is, I really doubt that it's an ability you could teach...it probably has a lot to do with good hearing, vision, attentiveness, and generally being 'in synch' with your surroundings.

Another thing that may burn you in the pants region is an STD, like AIDS. Now, a topical solution has been developed which seems to block HIV infection via mucosal membranes in female monkeys. This is a very promising step, as a lube-type product should be relatively easy to get people to start using, and even if not anywhere near 100% effective, every little bit helps (said the old woman who pissed in the sea).
