It is a lesser known fact that the word 'trust' originated with the word 'thrust.' In the 1700's, two brothers dueling over a woman had reached an impasse and one of them decided he no longer desired to live. Due to a humorous yet unfortunate accident involving chlorophorm and a goat, he lacked complete faculty of his tongue and was able only to request that his brother "trust me in the chest." The phrase became recognized as an expression of solidarity after wayward logs and a strong current then swept both men away and bewildered onlookers never heard from them again.

The only sure way to discover whether someone is lying or telling the truth is the scientifically approved "pants on fire" accusatory approach adopted by Prof. Hermann Gudentrueh in 1897, which has a 98.2% success rate.
