Tandoori! For SCIENCE!

The time for mad science is upon us! After a couple of weeks of herding cats, it is time to take the first step toward my plans for world domination through brainwave-controlled sex.

Tomorrow, we head off to Seattle, where we will spend the day hooking folks up to an EEG machine, getting them sexually aroused, and seeing if it results in a measurable, quantifiable change in observable brainwave patterns.

If the answer is "yes," the next step will be to see whether or not a Neurosky EEG chip can be programmed to spot that change; and if the answer to that question is "yes," then the next step after that is to see if it's possible to make a vibrator that can be controlled by thought.

Well, kind of. A vibrator that responds to arousal state, more precisely, but close enough.

And then, world domination!

Though not the kind Steve Jobs approves of. During the process of trying to work out transporting the EEG machine from the place where it's stored to the place where the mad science will be occurring, my iPhone made some...interesting word substitutions.

Why don't I ever get invited to these kinds of parties? I need better friends.

Well, that is what I get for not being faithful to LJ. I'm bad.

Still looking for people?

If I wasn't working I would but I do 10-hour shifts on the weekend. I'm keen to hear the results. I <3 brains.

I think you should start using the phrase "tandoori it", maybe to be "kludged together a solution" (c.f. MacGyvering a solution).

Did you managed to get the foo to talk to the bar? Yeah, I tandoori'd a solution with a spare switch.

I'm sorry I missed your previous post. Some work has been done studying EEG traces during sexual arousal, e.g., Cohen et al., 1985, Graber et al., 1985, and others, but as far as I know, none with the goal you have in mind. : )

The study sounds interesting enough as it is, but if there was tandoori involved it would be the science of the century!

You need to try some Tandoori Chicken with that! :P :D :)

Spicy, delicious world domination!

Hahahaha! I've been following you on twitter, love the lab coats! I am also excited to hear the results of this study!
