Can you tell when someone is lying by looking at their eyes? Many psychologists think when a person looks up to their right they are likely to be telling a lie and when they look quickly up to their left they are being honest. But researchers from Edinburgh University and Hertfordshire University say there is no scientific evidence for this.



如果一件事對某人來說是 one in the eye, 意思就是此人對事情的結果感到無比失望或受到了嚴重打擊,不過你卻對這樣的結果感到高興。
