  • Clearly lying or,at least, concealing, information which shes not comfortable sharing when talking about the seduction schools, notice the fidgeting of the ring on the left finger, she does a great job at keeping her head still but her eyebrows cant help but raise and the forced laugh which she has no problem stopping, and she closes her eyes which breaks eye contact, may not be a bold lie but she definitely not saying the truth, you can easily compare also her posture and just general demeanor to when she speaks of Virginia Hall and how she is much more comfortable, even at the end, she is much more open, palms facing upwards, "evidence is so strong, there ,take it", it was fun for her to analyse the scenes but it was fun to analyse her too

    • Not only do I suspect they have used it, they used it and I believe, especially considering which ring finger she fidgets with, that she may have used it in the past, probably when she was already married, throughout the rest of the video her whole body is much open, except for some times where she closes off but those are the moments when she analyses or reflects on what they we're doing back then, i think that was the only moment in the whole video where she was deceptive but she did a bad job hiding it

  • Very interesting. But the 'European way of counting on your fingers-theory' is not right. Most people I know in Europe do start counting with their thumb when they are 'obviously showing counting'. But when we show a certain number of things, we show one with the index finger, two with index finger and middle finger, three like the officer in the movie clip, four with all fingers and the thumb is only used when we show the number five.
