HOW TO DETECT A 2-WAY MIRROR
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 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 a GENUINE mirror.
However, if your fingernail DIRECTLY TOUCHES the image of your nail, then BEWARE,
FOR IT IS A 2-WAY MIRROR! So remember, every time you see a mirror, do the "fingernail
test." It doesn’t cost you anything. It is simple to do, and it might save you
from getting "visually raped"!
