Back To The Lab

“Do you like it? How about this one?”
Tetris - BassHunter

This experiment has proven that yet the most brilliant minds can be dysfunctional on certain days.

It also has proven that the first can also be the last, and that deadlines and expiry dates are very important.

The hypothesis of this experiment is that a brilliant person can solve a series of problems fabricated by a group of average-intelligent human beings in no time at all.

To prove this, we have had the generous assistance of our test specimen, the genius from P1, Taylors College Subang Jaya as shown in Figure 1.

Figure 1, the specimen/dependant variable

The specimen, named Kwan, was manipulated by our experimenter’s assistant who is pictured in Figure 2.

Figure 2a, The independent variable

The experimenter, who assumes all responsibility for any mishap or accident that would have occured throughout the course of this study is Prof. Cheah, as pictured below in Fig. 2b.

The study commenced at 11 a.m. GMT +8 on the third floor library of the Taylors College Subang Campus. The specimen was contacted by volunteer Dr. Ho via an anonymous double-blind contraption (Figure 3) consisting of an iPhone and a Sony Ericsson Walkman.

Contact was acquired at 11.18 a.m. The specimen was closely monitored by observers throughout the contact period (Figure 4).

After receiving the fabricated threat of the destruction of the specimen’s most prized possessions, Prof. Cheah stepped in to provide further details on the specimen’s next course of action (Figure 5).

After the initial stimulus (phone threat) is deployed, the specimen becomes mobile and attempts to rescue his belongings. En route, he is encountered by two supposed saboteurs (Figure 6). One being Dr. Ho and the other being a false saboteur used to provide a gazebo effect on the experiment. The specimen gave chase.

Figure 6. The Gazebo effect in action

Upon encountering the first saboteur (Dr. Ho, Fig. 7a), the specimen immediately retaliated and showed symptoms of nervous shock. Dr. Ho was destroying a replica of the specimen’s annual planner, which he keeps very preciously.

Following this, the specimen displayed stimulus generalization when encountering the false second saboteur as shown below (Fig. 7b).

After this, the specimen was given a riddle to guess in order to determine his next location. He successfully found it after 4 incorrect attempts. The total time taken was approx. 10 minutes.

His next task was to solve yet another riddle to determine the location of his final task. Volunteer Veteran Kenneth Chen was on board to provide him with the riddle.

The challenge of this task was to arrive at the destination upon consumption of an acidic liquid (Fig. 9a) followed by walking in reverse with minimal guidance from Kenneth and volunteer Dr. Hoong (Fig. 9b).

Figure 9b. The specimen being guided by Kenneth and Dr. Hoong

The specimen arrived at the destination almost 30 minutes after the estimated time of arrival. This was caused by delayed response to the solving of the riddles given. The specimen only displayed partial genius in the course of this experiment.

To conclude, Prof. Cheah, accompanied by his partner Dr. Ho proceeded with a debriefing (Fig. 10a, 10b) which stated that the specimen was the first to arrive at the destination, but was also the last, therefore, cancelling out all his past actions. The specimen was then seated at a table for the final stage of the investigation (Fig 10c).

The final investigation involved the stimulus-response theory. It was proven that the stimulus you see below (Figure 11)…

Figure 11. The stimulus

Should lead you to brace for a response (Figure 12) not from yourself, but from your surrounding peers.

This finalizes our research paper. Our hypothesis has been rejected, proving to lecturers and teachers worldwide that no one can maintain their full cognitive ability at all times.

In a nutshell, everyone needs some fun in their lives.




You’re finally 18! What you gonna do now? Put down the books for a week or two, get up and enjoy life! There’s more to it than just knowledge. After all, we learn something new everyday. That’s the way God created this world for us.

So after this weekend, put down the economics textbook and you’re free for nearly a week. Enjoy it! You’ve got nothing to lose!
