13. People place waaay more credence in things like GSR tests than is warranted

Compounds found in fertilizers (nitrate, potassium, aluminum), or on the hands of welders, mechanics (think brake dust), locksmiths, and those who handle paper can give a false positive.

I blame CSI, NCIS, and the crime procedurals like Law & Order
