Sneak was alarmed to hear that boffins from the Center for Neural Science at New York University are hard at work trying to turn the stuff of terrible Hollywood movies into quivering reality. The white-coat wearers have made the premise of Total Recall or Johnny Mnemonic seem credible by developing a technique for selectively wiping out an individual memory - while leaving similar or related memories intact. They’ve done this not by experimenting on Keanu Reeves’ skull with six-inch nails and a hammer, sadly, but with unfortunate lab rats, drugs and electric shocks. It sounds horrific but can’t be all bad. Sneak for one would certainly be willing to undergo a course of electro convulsive therapy if it could be guaranteed to wipe out any and all recollection of Keanu trying to act.
