Very entertaining

Ultra capacitors aren't exactly top secret, but it sounds cool and technical especially the "THIS IS NOT A JOKE" warning. hehe

Strangely, she never returned to our group again, nor did I ever hear from her again either.

Obviously she was sent back to Omicron Persei 8 or got the "ice pick" at the base of the skull.

I think this was an article on www.cracked.com, if it wasn't it should be. :P

Dr. Taff's has made a lot of interesting research in the areas of parapsychology, and his theories regarding poltergeist activity and haunted houses are fascinating.

That said, some of his ideas re. UFOs seem too... uncritical.

But I found this time-travel recipe interesting, particularly because this encounter with the Asian woman was in the mid 70s, and I just finished reading the final installment of the Caballo de Troya series, which deals with an alleged time-traveling secret project that was carried out in 1973. Hardly conclusive evidence, I know, but it was a nice synchronicity ;)

It's not the depth of the rabbit hole that bugs me...
It's all the rabbit SH*T you stumble over on your way down!!!
