I don't think direct pain (ie. cutting, electrocuting, burning) is acceptable or effective, but I have heard that things like cold/hot (within
reason, say 50 to 100 degrees) rooms, sleep deprivation and loud music all work. Absolutely nothing can cause lasting physical harm, but we don't
need to be giving them lobster meals and cable tv.
Personally, I think the best way to extract info is to force them to do somehting physically demanding (running or something), don't let them sleep
and ask them tons of questions, most of which are basic (how old are you, where are you from, what is your name...). If you do that, it becomes very
hard for people to concentrate well enough to lie effectively.
