A mad scientist friend offers you a chip that would allow you to know what the people you’re talking to are thinking. The catch: you can’t turn it off. Do you accept the chip?
This subject was kind of touched on in the movie “What Women Want” with Mel Gibson getting electrocuted and afterwards, he was able to hear women’s thoughts. Just women, though.
At first, he hated it, then he began to use it, and then, I think he was getting kind of tired of it when it left. Oh, btw, a bit late, but spoiler alert.
Let’s face it, there are times in your life when you really do wish you knew what people were thinking. I know I can think of a couple, a few, oh, what the heck, many times (but I’m 52 years old).
But to have it all the time, I think that would get in the way of really getting to know people and perhaps, to avoid the madness, cause let’s face it, it would be C R A Z Y, I’d probably end up becoming a hermit or something.
So, short answer, no, not if it was on all the time and I could never turn it off. Now, if it came with a switch so I could turn it on and off, just like my Grandmother used to do with her hearing aid, then, sign me up.
