i was walking back from lunch one afternoon last month w/ ██████ who has been involved in the ██████ experiments more or less since the beginning of the “activity.” we were talking about the last test. well, you get the idea. i said that everyone at s-68 had expected a crash; of course,
we knew it could and should go down 70 percent or 80 percent, “but not 96 percent,” she finished my sentence.
i opened my mouth to deliver the next line, but she beat me to it. “it can go down to zero,” she said.
“it can go down to zero.” you hear the phrase so often now.
