How the FLAC do I tell MP3s from lossless audio?

Yes you can hear the difference

Sent to me and posted here anonymised:

you can tell the difference, like everybody can.

Take your favourite CD, that does not contain metallic rock or other music with a lot of white noise.

More like acoustic instruments, singing etc, without a lot of cymbals and other white noise producing instruments, will do perfectly

rip a MP 3 of that CD

play the CD and the MP3 player simultaneously, so you can alternate between the two, and hear the difference if any.

You *will* hear the difference, on a somewhat reasonable HiFi installation.
