Patient A (let’s call him Alan) insisted he was from Deknka, a planet near Arcturus. His mission? To view our culture from the inside.
Patient B (Stella) was a monomaniac. Otherwise sane and logical, she insisted she communicated with extra-terrestrials.
Someone put them together in the same cell for observation.
Within minutes Stella transformed from being a monomaniac into believing she was from Deknka! Soon, everyone in the facility believed they were from Deknka.
Obviously they had all been possessed by Deknkaians.
They told me all about this yesterday and, frankly, I’ve no reason to suspect that they’re lying.

    Not certain there are no Deknkaians where I work Drew. :-) Love the way their name is almost a sound effect.

    Thanks Jamie, I'm impressed you noticed that, it's supposed to sound like the sound effects of a 50s or 60s sci-fi film alien. Cheers :)

    Hahahahaha! ‘and, frankly, I’ve no reason to suspect that they’re lying.’ That is surreally funny. (Let’s call him Alan.. maybe because it’s his name!) It’s priceless Drew... just taps straight into my own sense of humour. Love it! If you don’t mind, I’m going to try to share this with my family - my bro is thinking of joining Drablr)
