"Bank teller, reading the name on my business account: “‘Machines of Death’? What is that?”
Me: “We make electric chairs.”
(There is a long pause as she considers this.)
Teller: “You’re not…lying, are you?”
Me: “Yeah, I am lying.”
(The teller laughs with relief.)
Teller: “Ha ha…”
Me: “We make syringes for lethal injections.”
Teller: “…ha ha, yeah, OK. Fool me once!”"

"TURNS out two heads really are better than one. Two people have successfully steered a virtual spacecraft by combining the power of their thoughts - and their efforts were far more accurate than one person acting alone.
