Is that a mirror or a 2-way glass?

Mirror or glasss How can you tell when you are in a room, restroom, motel etc. with a mirror or a 2-way glass?

Here’s how: I thought it was quite interesting!  And I know in about 30 seconds you’re going to do what I did and find the nearest mirror.

Do you know how to determine if a mirror is 2-way or not?  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 looking at it.

So, how do we determine with 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 GENUINE mirror. However, if your fingernail DIRECTLY TOUCHES the image of your nail, then BEWARE! IT IS A 2-WAY MIRROR!

“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:

Ring Cycle of Music

An interesting piece of work by English artist Anton Hecht.  I’ve featured a few of his works or projects here on B&P, but they were lost with the crash in May.  I’ve always found his work to be interesting.

Wow those arts cuts are really bitting and we couldn’t afford instruments for everyone..No, really, just wanted to play around with the way people make music, and to come up with a concept that would allow nonplayers to get involved. I worked with composer Andy Jackson and sound engineer Chris Prosho and cameraman Magnus of MeerKat films. We also had the support of the University of Northumbria and Orange RockCorps on it. Left in allot of stuff I would normally cut out as it is all a bit of an experiment. I hope people get something out of watching it.
