Danie Krugel: Officially a Liar?
Some of you may recall that in January, Danie Krugel – erstwhile inventor of a device that can supposedly find anyone, anywhere, with merely a snippet of their hair – made a promise to me:
Danie also made a deal with me: in the next three months, there will be some big event regarding his device. He wouldn’t give specifics, but did eventually say after some pressing that the news would be international, and big, and if it didn’t happen in three months I could call him a liar.
Well, I’ve been generous and given him four months, to the day. A google search for the name Danie Krugel, conducted today, returns the following top five hits: the JREF forum thread about him, an article from 2004, and three links to my blog. It seems I’ve done more to make Danie Krugel famous than Danie Krugel.
As an aside, the news programme Carte Blanche, which promised to follow up on Danie by the end of January, has not done so to my knowledge.
Does anyone have anything else to add, either from the ‘big news’ front or the Carte Blanche follow up? Because if not, I will be forced to accept the fact that both Danie Krugel and Carte Blanche are officially liars.
