Better living through electricity

… the anticipation of electricity being beamed into my frontal lobes (and the consent form I had just signed) made me a bit nervous. Snyder found that amusing. ”Oh, relax now!” he said in the thick local accent he has acquired since moving here from America. ”I’ve done it on myself a hundred times. This is Australia. Legally, it’s far more difficult to damage people in Australia than it is in the United States.”

”Damage?” I groaned.

”You’re not going to be damaged,” he said. ”You’re going to be enhanced.”
