My thoughts on it all

Stim junkies: here now

Holy... Somebody get Niven on the phone, quick.

I can't say it any better than one of the doctors leading this research team:

"I never cease to be surprised by what not only people but what society finds tolerable and desirable," he said.

Haha! Great April Fools joke! Ha! That's too funny. People electrocuting themselves for pleasure... haha!

Oh wait. You mean our society really is this screwed up and this isn't a joke?

It always bothers me that, since I read William Gibson before I read any Larry Niven, my online alias is interpreted by most people to mean "electrostimulation junkie" as defined by Niven. When I originally started using it, it just meant a guy with a datajack installed (Neuromancer, Virtual Light, etc.).

Perhaps those involved should see if there might be something wrong in their lives that makes them feel crappy.

Oh, that would be just too simple.
