One of my chemistry students today was wearing a black T-shirt with small white lettering on the front: "By reading this, you have given me brief control over your mind." Hilarious. Didn't get the chance to ask him where he'd gotten it, but a Google search of the statement led me to your site. What luck!! It's great - thank you!
