                                                Just by pointing his super-magnets at the right spots on your head, Doctor Alvaro Pascual-Leone can make you go momentarily mute or blind. He can disrupt your working memory or your ability to recognize faces.

He can even make it harder for you to say verbs while nouns remain as easy as ever. Weird, yes. Fringe, no.

                                                is this one anything like the giant phaser that someone had gone and built a while back, but it was the size of a pool table?

                                                so who is the jackass that lets this guy fry his brain with magnets, making him mute and blind?  omg.                                                

if there was a meteor,
adrift amongst space,
set about on a collision course
not with Earth, but my face...
i wonder if id even know,
at what time i might,
be passed off like an old style
and by the meteor be smite?
