When Life Gives You Lemons, Rob A Bank

This is old news, but it’s new to me. Just about everyone experiments with the old “invisible ink” with lemon juice in their childhood. It’s right up there with the decoder ring we got in Cracker Jacks. In 1995, MacArthur Wheeler and Clifton E. Johnson strolled into a Swissvale Penn. bank robbery with cutting edge disguises to avoid video camera detection. Yes, dear reader, careful application of lemon juice to the face renders you undetectable to video cameras. Mind you, this wasn’t just some flight of fancy, no. This involved testing. Experimentation. The Empirical method at its finest. Wheeler took a selfie with a Polaroid Camera, and it turned out blank. Bazinga! Yatzee! Eureka! [what do bank robbers shout when they’ve made an important discovery? I don’t know. If you do, fill in the blank] We can safely conclude that lemon juice makes you invisible to Polaroids. Good thing that’s what they were using at the bank….wait. Ut oh. There might be a flaw in their methodology. So anyway, the enterprising pair made off with $5200 USD. The rest is Darwinian history.
They were arrested the same day. At the time, he [Wheeler] protested to the police “But I wore the juice”. I guess the banks weren’t using Polaroids that day….

In election news~ vote Donald Trump. I’m told by a friend that wearing Trump juice on your face will make America great again. selection_486

    ahhh next time there’s a trump rally (and there is ALWAYS a next trump rally) we should all bring lemon juice and coat him with it.

    Oh, wait. if you covered the LENS of the camera, would that work? That is really an interesting thing to know. I have a friend who insists that the only good picture of anyone is the bad side, the open mouth, the hooded stare (otherwise known as “I was blinking”)…I may do that the next time I visit her.
