Mindworm Alert: 51 High-Tech Practical Jokes for the Evil Genius

I recently got a copy of the book51 High-Tech Practical Jokes for the Evil Genius. I spent hours just reading it, enthralled by the explanations of how to build stuff like the "Evil-Posessed Doll" or the "Rigged Lie Detector".

I NOW HAVE REASON TO BELIEVE SAID BOOK IS HOST TO A HIGHLY VIRULENT STRAIN OF MINDWORM. Ever since, I have not been able to get that book out of my head.

I was finally able to regain normal existence patterns by giving the book to a friend for safe-keeping, then submerging myself in TVTropes (which is addictive in itself. It's kind of like jumping out of the fire, into the frying pan.)

I have since learned that such actions carry their own consequences. Mainly, I should have given the book to someone who does not know how to use a soldering iron.

The book is great-- heck, it's incredible!-- but if you do obtain a copy, even through the library, beware.

And when you've caught it, don't say I didn't warn you. :wink:

Welcome to the promised LAN.

Darn it SiB.

I'm never reading anything you suggest to me again.

Now I can't get it out of my mind!

We've learned a lot, but this still isn't going to be easy. But I don't think the elder star's confidence in us was misplaced. I know we can do this! We'll set things right! ...somehow.

"There is a fine line between a good King and a Despot. A King is best when His subjects barely realize that He exists. When His work is done and His will is fulfilled, they will say, 'We did it ourselves.'"
