Fake soldiers guard base
    #99967 - 08/01/08 02:39 PM (8 years, 4 months ago)

To save money, a Taiwanese army base decided to use dummies in place of real soldiers to guard a base.
Locals eventually noticed that the soldiers never moved, and as word spread the fake soldiers became
a tourist attraction. (via Weird Asia News)

It's actually not as odd as it sounds. Ever since World War II armies have made extensive use of decoys,
including fake tanks, aircraft, ships, and individual soldiers. A classic story about this phenomenon is that
during WWII the Germans created an entire decoy airfield in North Africa. In response, the British sent out
a single bomber who dropped a wooden bomb on it.

The local pigs do this around here, they put cars on the side of the road with a dummy cop inside them to trick people into slowing down on the road. it works, but seems like a waste of a copcar, cause they sit in the same spot for months.
