I volunteer for a brain study (I use “volunteer” loosely, seeing as they’re paying me $200) to see what it’s like inside all the fancy restricted neuroscience labs. If I’m gonna maybe do something with neuroscience someday, I should know what I’m subjecting people to, right?
regardless, it goes like this: I get MRIs. lots of them. “the hardest part of the study,” they tell me, “is staying that absolutely still for that long without falling asleep.” Personally, I think they are wrong.
this is how everything is connected: Osmium tetroxide sublimes really easily so you have to be careful if you choose to use it as a reagent for a dihydroxlation of an alkene to a stereospecific syn vicinal diol.
I sublime really easily too.
this is what it’s like: it’s harder with my eyes open, but I have to keep them like that because I’m supposed to be looking straight ahead at the little x projected in front of me when I’m in the MRI machine. I meditate anyways.
I disappear into nothing.
