Full Disclosure — A mad scientist friend offers you a chip that would allow you to know what the people you’re talking to are thinking. The catch: you can’t turn it off. Do you accept the chip?
All those voices ricocheting around my head! It’s maddening. It wouldn’t be so bad if I could just hear what they are thinking about one thing, whatever we are talking about … but I hear everything. Talk about too much information, this is psychic overload to the nth degree!
Do I need to know what you’re planning to buy at the grocery store, how much it costs? What meals you’re going to make from which ingredients?
How your little sexual adventure with hubby went last night? What you think you are going to do tomorrow? How much Viagra the old guy takes? The state of your legs, whether or not they need shaving?
I just want to have a simple conversation about … what was it we were talking about? I’m lost in all that mental noise. I can’t remember anything. I think I’m going mad.
You’re looking at me funny. Hey, do you have one of those chips too? Oh my Gawd. It’s a freaking nightmare.
Whose idea was this? I see the bastard. He’s over there, look! It’s that guy from WordPress. Can I kill him? There’s gotta be a law … Don’t let him get away! Grab him, he’s trying to run!
Okay, WordPress guy. We need to have a little chat. And I’ve got a chip for you.
