The world is full of idiots, or so it would appear.
The story goes that police in a town in Pennsylvania interrogated a suspect by placing a metal colander on his head and connecting it with wires to a photocopy machine.
The message “HE’S LYING” was placed in the copier, police pressed the copy button each time they thought that the suspect wasn’t telling the truth.
Totally convinced that the “lie detector” was working, the suspect ended up confessing to his crimes.
They say there is no cure for stupid, but I believe there is no cure for gullible either.
