I’m at a 5k race, supporting a friend. I see a shirtless dude trailing in the back, out of shape and in over his head. Thinking quickly, I toss him my eReader, open to Echo. A blinding flash as he’s infused with the ideas of quantum tech, Zen themes, and cyber ninjas. When I can see again, dude’s sprouted so many abs his stomach looks like some kind of weird crustacean underside. He zooms to the finish line and I hear, “A new record! 5k in 10 minutes!” Crowd goes wild.
