2 way mirrors

Subject: 2 way mirrors

I thought it was quite interesting! and I know in about 30 seconds you're
gonna do what I did and find the nearest mirror.... Often heard about the
2-way mirror but could never tell. Thought you might be interested. Do you
know how to determine if a mirror is 2-way or not? This is not to scare
you, but to make you aware. A policewoman who travels all over the US and
gives seminars and techniques for businesswomen passed this on. When we
visit toilets, bathrooms, hotel rooms, changing rooms, etc., How many of
you know for sure that the seemingly ordinary mirror hanging on the wall
is a real mirror, or actually a 2-way mirror? (I.e., they can see you, but
you can't see them.) There have been many cases of people installing 2-way mirrors in female changing rooms. It is very difficult to positively identify the
surface by just looking at it. So, how do we determine any amount of
certainty what type of mirror we are looking at?

Just conduct this simple test:

Place the tip of your fingernail against the reflective surface and if
there is a GAP between your fingernail and the image of the nail, then it
is a GENUINE mirror.

However, if your fingernail DIRECTLY TOUCHES the image of your nail, then

"No Space, Leave the Place"

So remember, every time you see a Mirror, do the "fingernail test." It
doesn't cost you anything.

Remember: "No Space, Leave the Place"

Ladies: Share this with your girlfriends, sisters, daughters, etc.

Men: Share this with your wives, daughters, daughters-in law, mothers,
girlfriends and/or friends. .
Sure gives ya somethin to think about doesn't it?

Could explain why that silly ossifer was pounding on my car window - here he was checking for mirrors and i thought he wanted to drive! With the way that clown zipped outa nowhere with all those lights, he can just drive somebody else's car! BTW does rain rinse off palm prints & donut crumbs? How bout tire marks on blue shirts? Baton skids on my temple? :)

it should be against the law,,but it is most often the folks with a badge that looks through the mirrors.

DD    Posted 05-30-2004 at 10:47:11       [Reply]  [No Email]
I couldn't care less whether they have a badge or not, I still don't want em watching me try on something. That's JMHO : )

It may surprise the average folks what is done in the name of security.

DD    Posted 05-30-2004 at 14:24:45       [Reply]  [No Email]
Yep, I know, it still sounds like a crock to me ; )
