There’s a show in the UK called Faking It. An ordinary member of the public is trained by professionals in a month or so to do a vastly different profession that they are ostensibly suited to. They are then judged against people who have been practising said profession for years by panel who don’t know who’s trying to Fake It. More often than not, the recently trained faker wins as the most convincing ‘x’ in the group.

I was reminded of this by a recent posting on the Emirates Economist about hymen replacement surgery. A delightful topic I’m sure you’ll agree. Women have to go through such an operation to obtain a certificate of virginity before they get married in some parts of the Arab world. Head more here and here.
