You’re Getting Sleepy, Very Sleepy

If you’ve always wanted to hypnotize someone or be hypnotized, our friends in belle France had a fool proof method. At the turn of the century Mon. J. Filiatre, drawing from ancient methods and revealing them in 128 photographs, teaches the world “les sciences utiles” of hypnotism.

Regrettably, his subjects are neither convinced or convincing. I prefer the old fashioned movie version, where a dude in a monkey suit waves a pocket watch back and forth, guiding his subject into a zombie-like state. Once hypnotized, so the story goes, the subject is compelled to obey, no matter how strange or ridiculous the request. Muttering “Yes, master,” the subject does the hypnotist’s bidding. Are you sleepy yet?
