Speaking of Bullshit detection, all men fall for one or another version of this:

"The Professor, the Bikini Model and the Suitcase Full of Trouble"

anonymous writes:

I had Prof. Frampton for a course in mechanics back in ~1983. I wouldn't have predicted this whole episode, but it's true that he seemed naive about, and even wholly segregated from, anything outside of physics. It's easy to envision his losing his wife because he probably didn't make an emotional connection with her. Then the "bikini model" came along, feigned an interest in his physics as well as him, and got him hooked.

I think it then became a mid-life crisis. He got caught up in the excitement of doing a drug deal, to the extent that he jotted "back of the envelope" calculations of the intended profits. Those jottings may have sealed his fate in the trial.

    Not all men would fall for this. Trust everybody, but always cut the cards. I would have been gone when the first ticket proved false.
