I just did a Pre-Employment poly on a law enforcement applicant. He took one for another agency a few weeks ago. He told me that examiner used an electric chair similar to a Barber's chair minus the foot rest.He was also told to leave his shoes at the door. He said he was placed into a "reclining position" and was "elevated" approximately four feet into the air so his "body" was at eye level to the examiner. The examiner then placed a lit candle on his desk next to the examinee.

Anyone ever heard of this?

PS: I edited this post because the Applicant also told me the examiner "took long phone conversations" during the examination. The Examinee thought it was a "mind game" to get him to make more admissions??

I am a little embarrassed Ted. He is talking about one of my experimental exams I call the "date with a barber" test. Did he also mention my post test role-reversal sock-puppet show? What about me making him dress beforehand like a cowgirl?

Well Ted, what about the big question? Did he make more disclosures? If so, where do I get one of those chairs, and can I use any old candle?

(A minute ago, this said "bog question." It's time for the AM caffeine!)

Would you believe, the old "date-with-the-barber" theme.

Ah, gadgets.

Was it an electric barber chair, or one of those really cool old pneumatic ones?

Because of just such situations where a different examiner is stymied by a previous test with me, I completely quit administering tests while the examinee lays in my 12 bulb tanning bed. I do miss the extra fees I received from giving the deep lusterous tan.

Hey stat,

You could bundle that polygraph tanning bed with the Ted-Haggard convertible massage-table/polygraph-chair for a really great last minute Festivus shopping idea - for the examiner who already has everything.

I thought about throwing in some pneumos, but they are oily and smell of cocoa butter.

I just got back from Borders Bookstore and spent $20 on a lousy CD! $20???!!! Christmas shopping this year is far more expensive than last year.

I wonder if Germans will ever stop being so easy to pick on. I am guessing at least 200 more years provided that they don't try to annhilate a race and conquer the world----they are after all, on double secret probation. They do make great cuckoo clocks. See, there I go again. Damnit!

stat,

I found my Festivus pole in the back-yard, behind the shed. I was being used to prop up a sagging branch on my neighbors box-elder tree, that was threatening to damage my fence. But that can wait, because, after all, 'tis the season. So I set up the Festivus pole on the back porch where its not in the way of anything. There is a little bit of corrosion on the aluminum (high strength to weight ratio, and normally very low maintenance). I though about cleaning it off, but that would be, as they say "becoming overly concerns with appearances," and contrary to the spirit of Festivus.

------------

It occurs to me that Kaisho and Jesper might be just the kind of whack-jobs that we want posting at anti.

Last week Jesper was sending me private messages that he wanted to be my friend. My gut tells me that Jesper is Cliff (1904) going to great lengths of a disguise. There was something distinctly innapropriate and yet familiar about his reaching out the way he did. He has sent me several greetings of warmth and holiday spirit. Strange indeed.His defense of the German people even seemed a bit secondary, like he was defending people he admired rather than his own people.

That place makes me paranoid. Then again, I am probably projecting.

Jesper = 1904???

Wouldn't surprise me. 1904 was having far too much fun to simply walk away, and there has been something odd an inauthentic about Jesper him all along.

1904 is a highly manipulative person who enjoys duping others as much as any psychopath. He's also arrogant, grandiose, and though he may make a good initial impression, fact-checking reveals a host of problems - once again not unlike a psychopath.

I had the same thoughts about Jespar/1904. I also wouldn't be surprised if Batwing is 1904 - he once told me he has baby bats where he lives.

He's got bats some place. That's for sure. If he emails any of you, send me the whole email with the headers and I'll see where it comes back to the same place as 1904's. I'm quite confident they are the same lovable Clifton.

Hi Ted,

I am aware of Dental chairs being used with modified arms. They take the subject's feet off the ground. The dual affect is that you have the feet in your view to combat on Anti-poly's toe crunching advice, as well as the elevated positioning of the feet having an affect on the pneumos; wherein the subject quits thinking about their breathing given their sense of balance has been altered a bit. You get great pneumos vs. timed ones or long rounded ones, and it is a beneficial method for that purpose when done right. I was show this by a PhD in Texas, and I believe in that research having seen such charts.

As for the phone calls being answered in a test, I don't know what to say, other than that Examiner not investing in a phone which has a Do Not Disturb feature.

Our worst mistake as a profession is believing we have ALL the answers already, and can't find a way to do something better. Over my last twenty years in this profession what rings true is that most of the successful schools who teach our professon have school directors who are or have been great researchers, and who keep an open mind as to where and how to improve us.

The problem is that its hard to get a good tan or massage in a Dental chair.

School directors = researchers? Have I missed something?

The absolute best polygraph chair would of course be the NASA vertical upside down lift-off chair---as the blood rushes to the brain, and the bocas region and amygdala regions for good arousal tracing.

My second choice would be the Pope's bejeweled throne---a perfect prop for innocently accused thieves who would get such great psych-set from the temptations to pocket some set stones. CQ; "Have you ever been flooded with the desire to steal something priceless?

I don't know about any of you guys but if I start seeing large rounded pneumos, I tell them to knock it off. If they continue, the test is over and so are their job chances!

I suppose I could have them run in circles while holding a basebal bat between the floor and their forehead prior to the exam but it just seems like too much work. Then again, perhaps the baseball bat could be used later to assist in obtaining a confession.
