How accurate are police sketches? Incredible comparison
How accurate are police sketches? Incredible comparison

Here's a fun one for a Friday. You've probably seen a magician ask a volunteers to think of something and draw it without showing them, before the magician – incredibly – produces the very thing in their picture. It's such a cool thing to see and as a magician, you're always hoping the volunteer has *some* artistic skills!

Well, these images made me think of that effect. Someone's laboriously matched up people arrested crimes with the original police sketches of their suspects. (Based on these, though, I'm not sure they caught *all* the right people?!)
