The Higgins Experiment


I'm just this guy, you know?

To expand on that, I am also the following...

- A former ficly member who is 38 years old and is schizoaffective (depressive type)

- Into creating languages and fantasy worlds from scratch

- A listener of audiobooks & good tunes

- Always too hard on myself

There were two buttons in front of Higgins. They flashed, as buttons sometimes, but not always, do. One button was a very ominous looking red button. If buttons had faces, it would have a grumpy one. The other button was a very cheerful looking green button. This button's face would be pleasant & have a "Hello, how are you?" type of smile, welcoming you into the world of buttons.

"PLEASE PUSH A BUTTON" a mechanical voice barked at Higgins over the loudspeaker.

"I've always liked green," Higgins thought to himself & promptly pressed the green button with vigor.

There was a large explosion.

"HIGGINS HAS BEEN ELIMINATED" a mechanical voice barked again, seemingly at no one in particular.

There was an audible gasp from outside the room, then polite applause.

"BRING THE NEXT HIGGINS" the same mechanical voice instructed to someone.

A large, thick metal door creaked open and a man identical to the first stumbled into the room.

"PLEASE PUSH A BUTTON" a mechanical voice barked at Higgins over the loudspeaker.
