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.
