    Scientists Say They値l Be Able to Erase Specific Memories Soon

    https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/a...a-snails-brain

    Erasing memories of scorned lovers is no longer just a movie trope popularized in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. A new study of snail neurons suggests it's possible to wipe out specific memories in snails, and scientists think that a drug could be developed to do the same with humans in the future.

    Well, it's been in your mouth for like, three hours. It feels like it's full of water.

    That's *scarier* - that they might IMPLANT new memories.

    But I was thinking Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.
    敵ood intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters.".Daniel Webster
