Strychnine is a toxic plant alkaloid frequently used to kill rats and small vermin. It has been used as a poison for thousands of years. From the late 1800s through the early 1900s strychnine, in low doses, developed a reputation as a recreational stimulant and performance enhancer. Think energy drink for Victorians. See more »
Dr. Jeff Conover interviews a girl who was blinded in an accident that also gave her the ability to determine past and future days of the week in an instant. During the interview she determines that July 4, 2113 will be on a Wednesday, and this is confirmed by Dr. Conover from a book. This is incorrect. July 4, 2113 will be on a Tuesday. Evidently, in arriving at their conclusion, the writers did not take into account that 2100 will not be a leap year according to the Gregorian Calendar. See more »
A young scientist sets out, on his own, to show what the brain can actually do when properly stimulated. Through the use of electricity and some interesting medications he comes to realize that we are using an infinitely small part of our potential brain power. This comes as a result of trying to get persons to control their bodily functions, including oxygen consumption, through proper stimulus of the brain. Anyway, this comes with some pretty strong potential dangers. The episode is better acted than most and presents some interesting, thought provoking issues. Among these is that when the parts of the brain are stimulated, they affect others.
