  1. Jesus!!!… This story almost turn me into a believer have not being by the creepy beastly voice at the end of the experiment. That by the way, proved another thing of Jesus Christ’s miracle: his divine origin, or better yet… his alien origin, for what could that voice belong but to an extraterrestrial entity? For Cthulhu’s sake!!!… This is what pulp Fiction can do… wonders!!!

  2. Thanks Odilius and Tony for the kinds words – I was particularly impressed with Wilson’s narration this time around and will be lobbying for more from him as soon as possible. 🙂

  3. Wilson here. Thanks for the kind words!

    Here’s something odd for your webmaster to look at: if you click my name in the Tags, this post doesn’t come up in the list! Very strange.

  4. Hi Wilson – I can see it there now, but I’m not surprised it wasn’t there before… we cache the whole site very aggressively to keep the load on the server as small as possible. Thanks for the heads-up, though – we’ll keep an eye on it.

  5. Ah, yes; now I see it as well. (I wasn’t upset about it or anything – I just thought it was a bit weird.)
