The minds of users in dummy mode will wander to other topics (i.e. "my bum hurts") and they will follow all but the most obviously counter-intuitive directions without question.

Dummy mode can be intentionally induced by throwing together a lot of complex, multiple syllable terms and acronyms that vaguely relate to the situation at hand as a response to a question.
