The BBC had a very A* science article today: Scientists can implant false memories into mice talks about an experiment where scientists activated specific brain cells in mice via light pulses over brain-implanted fiber optics to trigger a memory of a painful environment. The article goes on to talk about how memory works: memories are encoded in combinations of brain cells, and changes to these cells and thus the memories recorded in them can change--and indeed are changing all the time.

Fascinating stuff! We'll be up to Selenis' level of encoding lifetimes of memories in no time. : D

You'll avoid this problem if you add more fibre to your diet!

You know I'm not sure how much fiber those dredge miners stock, now that you mention it.
