    A Mirror or a 2-Way Glass?

    How can you tell when you are in a room, restroom,
    motel etc. with a mirror or a 2-way glass?

    Here's how: I thought it was quite interesting! And I
    know in about 30 seconds you're going to do what I did
    and find the nearest mirror.

    Do you know how to determine if a mirror is 2-way or
    not? A policewoman who travels all over the US and
    gives seminars and techniques for businesswomen passed
    this on.

    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 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 GENUINE mirror. However, if your
    fingernail DIRECTLY TOUCHES the image of your nail,
    then BEWARE! IT IS A 2-WAY MIRROR!

    "No Space, Leave the Place" So remember, every time
    you see a mirror, do the "fingernail test." It doesn't
    cost you anything.

    REMEMBER. No Space, Leave the Place:

    2-WAY GLASS...no gap between finger and reflection - see the first image

    MIRROR...has gap between finger and reflection - see the second image
