Confusing CCTV

Following on from my previous blog post Big Mocha Is Watching You. If you don't want to invest in a flask, but would like to obscure the informsation obtained from CCTV about you that is used for market research, then here are some ideas:

1. Dress as the opposite sex.
***
2. Make yourself look older. (or younger perhaps, although as Felicity Kendal knows, one is easier than the other)
***
3. Make a daily habit of walking into a coffee shop, queuing for 5 minutes, and then leaving.
***
4. Buy items that are unlikely for someone of your age and sex, and that you have absolutely no interest in.
***

5. Pick up an item, hold it up to the CCTV camera, shrug questioningly, give the camera a sad and longing puppy face, and then erratically throw the item on the floor and violenty stamp on it. Then look back at the camera and smile peacefully.
***

6. Wear a burka or a nun's outfit. Not only will this completely obscure your age and (theoretically) sex, but it will give the market research company a skewed idea of their customers' religious demographic.
***

7. Buy what your friend wants and ask your friend to buy what you want. Then once outside and away from the CCTV's glare, swap purchases.
***

8. Constantly pick things up and then put them back.
