The Line Between Mad Scientist and Evil Genius

I've been doing a lot of psychology research of late—the halo effect for "Whatever Skin You Wear" (which I didn't end up using when I changed the story's scope) and recently oxytocin, the "moral molecule."

And I am reminded again how much I love psychology and also that I'm somewhat sad that I'm not active in the field. Probably just as well. I'd enjoy far too much being a mad scientist/evil genius...

One of my favorite quotes from the Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV series:

Riley: Psychologically this is fascinating, doesn't it make everyone wanna lock them in separate rooms and do experiments on them? [everyone stares]...Just me then.
