When I hear of experiments I think of Bunsen burners, vials and strange chemicals.

What is it going on?

Experiments to me have darker connotation, like human vivisection, by nazis and Japanese in China, during WWII or ongoing on animals today.

Your head is in a dark place Sam. You seem to thrive on worst case scenarios.

I started an experiment about 6 months ago.

The results came in at the weekend.

Very favourable and has the desired effect. So much so, that I had a good nights sleep for the 1st time in weeks.

The experiment?

All to do with fruit, water & yeast. :-))

FBF: not always is my head in a dark place and I do not thrive on worst case scenarios. However I am a realist, attempting to see the realities of the world (not like some, who brush inconvenient truths under the carpet) and past experiments are, often, nothing to shout home about. The terrible social experiments, that Thatcher conducted, still reverberates today. Many scientist’s experiments have produced world shattering results, both positive and negative: The atomic bomb, advances in medicine and biological understandings, dead ends by alchemists, etc.

Don't worry Sam most of us with heads in a dark, miserable, pessimistic place believe we are just realists.

I’m afraid, I have lost my rose tinted spectacles a long while ago. To many, they are glued on.

I'll give you a tip Sam. Think of the last place your glasses might be and start there.

I'm a realist, but I try and see the opportunities for change and try and help bring about some change. I've been in some pretty dark places, places I wouldn't want to go back to, but I use those experiences to inform how act and react to things now, theres always misery and bad things happening, but theres lots of good and loving things too. We just have to keep the balance and work toward restoring it, one step at a time.

I quite like experiements, some of them taste really good!

I agree. A realist will see the good and that bad.

Both. A film like that must be worth a fistful of dollars at least. The thread I have a feeling is an experiment, hidden inside an experiment of an experiment.

Maybe I'm being too simplistic.

Far too simplistic. I think the experiment will be complex beyond our comprehension.
