Why one of the teams in the DEF CON social engineering contest failed
. The team's representative was trying to get a woman on the phone to give him some information by telling her that his brother, who was sitting right there in front of him, was deaf
, and wouldn't she please help out his brother? He could give her his cell phone
I can't remember the details. Sorry.
Some time passes, and he pleads with her a little more, until she finally says "Why does your deaf brother need a cell phone?"
a moment of silence
...and hundreds of people bust out laughing.
