A friend of mine and I were discussing “perfect crimes” this weekend. He claims that you can kill someone in their sleep by playing a sound with the rhythm of a heartbeat next to them while they sleep. Their heartbeat will synchronize to the speed of the sound, and then you then either slow down the sound until it stops or speed it up to a dangerous level. Remove the speakers, and voila! Murder without even touching anyone!
Would this be remotely possible? I’d think it for starters it would take much too long - you’d have to make the speed adjustments very gradually, and the person would inevitably move around in their sleep and throw things off. Also, I think the body would correct the rhythm if it got too far from normal. What sayest my fellow sick bastards?
