meh, the technology needed to "read" minds is at least two decades off. Even the most highly detailed fMRI scans only hint at thought, like shadows on a cave wall, and their accuracy over repeated tests is faulty at best.

as a side question, I've noticed you guys say goberment, gubermint, gub'ment, and similar words to describe the government. Why this bastardization? Is it merely a sign of disrespect? Is it an allusion to some other insidious force? Or is it an example of living life without the need of education?

Not at all... if you listen to someone from the "Deep South" speak, the word "government" comes out as either "guvment" or "gubment". No disrespect is intended, that's just the way their vernacular pronounces it.
