    How many conspiracy theorists does it take to change a lightbulb?

    Thomas Edison was a member of the ILLUMINATI who use light bulb oscillations to hypnotize America!!! See my blog for detailed proof.

    MRIs are not suited to relaxed contemplation. As Roger says, unless you are into head banging volume Up To Eleven, it's gonna be very LOUD.

    Maybe it is because I am into heavy metal... but the one time I had an MRI, I actually found it perfectly fine (except for not being allowed to move). The sound didnít bother me at all, though I know itís tough for lots of people.

    I guess the moral of the story is listen to head-banging music.

    I found out how bad my claustrophobia was by having an MRI (scrubbed the mission until I went to an open MRI and got loaded up on calm pills).

    So.... NO.

    You do have to mentally prepare yourself, there's no way around it. I've managed to get through the last few MRIs but I admit it took willpower and a lot of mental obfuscation (lying to myself about where I was, and doing relaxation therapy).

    I almost fell asleep during my MRI.
    Tight space & noise? No problem.

    But get me on a Ferris Wheel, and I feel very uncomfortable.

    Yeah, same here. Ferris wheels arenít terrible for me as long as they are enclosed, but there are few things as terrifying as standing on the ledge of a building or a cliff...

    Heights are an interesting psychological thing. Ask someone to stand with their toes up to a tile line on the floor and they can do it all day. Make it even a one-meter drop and it becomes a lot more difficult. The standing isn't actually any harder, it's the headology!

    "Headology" indeed. I have deep fear of heights but it operates in strange ways. If I am sitting in a plane and looking out the window it is basically ok. However, if I stand up in the aisle and look out of the window then it kicks in!

    I think it is a learned experience. Recently I climbed the inside of a Lighthouse (at Happisburgh) with a helical stair and rail and found it, like my colleagues at the time, very unsettling and since then I find balconies with low rails much more difficult than before. But people who use that Lighthouse regularly have no problem And laugh at the many visitors who find they have to sit on the steps to get down!

    I love MRIs. It is the closest I felt to Star Trek being real. All the technology around me made me feel calm. The condition that sent me to it--that's another thing.

    There is at least some element of visual feedback to balance.

    Under normal circumstances, we can tell how we are moving or teetering or wobbling by picking up subtle movement and parallax clues from our environment, especially the ground.
    Move the environment yards - or dozens of yards - away, and you reduce that visual calibration.

    Try this: line up your toes on the tile. See how long you can hold it without adjusting. Now close your eyes and try again.

    MRIs don't bother me, either. I can recall lying in the tube marvelling at how my various nuclei were being yanked back and forth by a powerful magnetic field and I didn't feel a thing. At which point I began to feel distinctly warm. Hmmm, they're microwaving me. Nah, it was just a long narrow tube with a warm body in it for forty minutes.

    If I had a web beacon, I'd make it grail shaped. I guess I'd have to name my server Anthrax (it isn't a very good server).
