it seems to me like it wouldn't be that difficult to earn a living wage just off of participating in experiments and doing odd job type things off of craig's list.

of course, you would probably also have to spend half your time living in hospitals, since the sleep studies are the big money makers.

so, i probably still wouldn't get to spend any more time with chaucer. sigh.

My brother did the whole test subject thing for a while. He made some pretty good bread, but he said it wasn't worth it.

Anyway, if I lose my job, I'd probably do it. It has to look good on a resume, right? Can you imagine the interviews you'd have?

"So, Mr. Richard, what's this down here about being a subject in medical experiment?"

"Oh, that's where I got the third arm."

"The third arm, eh? I wasn't going to say anything, but I was curious about that."

"Yeah, and I got laser-beam eyes, too."

"Is that why the reception area is on fire? I thought you might have something to do with that. Anyway, you're our kind of mutant! Welcome aboard!"

"Yes! Finally my dream of a career in mad science is fulfilled!"

Anyway, that's how I'd like to think it would go down, anyway... Ah, to dream...

Is your Tuesday treating you better than your Monday?

Ha! That's a great comment. :)

Anyway, it's probably for the best anyway. This time of day is when Chaucer's getting his heavy sleeping in, no doubt.

it's true. he's a sleepy poo.

i think you're obsessed with the mad science, gtfhwzk.

tuesday is much better. mostly cuz i have a lot to do.

why wasn't it "worth" it? too much work organizing? experiments themselves don't seem too demanding. altho i've never been in any high paying things. maybe those are more so.

You're right, I'm obsessed. That's what society always says about visionaries, huh?

I think my brother's big complaint was that he had to spend whole weekends in some kind of dormotory, eating very controlled portions of food picked by someone else, with the only entertainment being whatever videotapes the people running the study happen to leave around. He said he ended up seeing Cherry 2000 more than any sane human being ever should. I think that was about it. If you want I can try to jog his memory about the issue.
