Ninety Percent Water
We were crazy back then, running experiments we had no business messing with. I remember the time we wanted to measure the story content of human beings by draining the narrative sense from various subjects. The ethics board rejected our proposal with prejudice. We took the project underground. We liked thinking of ourselves as rogues anyway. Before long we had enough volunteers for a proper experimental group and a sufficient control group. We were ready to run the trials when cooler heads prevailed. We never did take story away from anyone. I have no regrets but sometimes I still wonder.
