So he lapses into a dream, the undying wonderful dream of his life. And though Kemp has fished unceasingly, and Adye has questioned closely, no human being save the landlord knows those books are there, with the subtle secret of invisibility and a dozen other strange secrets written therein. And none other will know of them until he dies 2014.

It does look pretty freaky.

Further research indicates these mice emit a constant stream of squeaks which translate roughly as "PLEASE KILL ME" over and over again.

It is in a different state.  Not dead.  Not alive.  Just...waiting.

Magnificent first effort in this thread, good sir. Nicely done. I too was reminded of the process by which the Invisible Man became invisible.

Well, I guess that answers my question of what colors we are on the inside.

/are they as slimy as they look?? 'Cause that looks like a walking pile of goo.

Pants full of macaroni!!: Further research indicates these all mice emit a constant stream of squeaks piss, which translate roughly as "PLEASE KILL ME" over and over again is dribbled all over everything you own in your kitchen and pantry as well as the warehouse it was stored in..

I'm a biologist.
This is creepy.
Really cool.
Still creepy.

This happened at Caltech?  I guess Sheldon Cooper and Leonard Hofstadter have been busy.
(Yes, I know they're physicists, and Amy and Bernadette are the biologists - I watch the show.)
