When someone's had a bump on the head, health professionals have a 'fail-safe' way of assessing their cognitive capabilities. They ask them the name of the current Prime Minister or President. But surely this is flawed? What happens if the patient answers correctly, but proceeds to share an utterly ridiculous account of that person's actions? Do opinions sometimes reflect sanity? Make sure that you don't get swept along by someone's potentially crazy ideas today.
