Well, from all my readings into the subject of neurology, I
would have to guess it must have been something in the water and
sandwiches I ate that caused highly strange events in my life.
Of course, I am referring to the amount of toxic bromides I have
ingested. Along with the rest of the American public. Maybe, we
could all be subjected to temporary bouts of hallucination or
delirium. That includes everybody living in the U.S. of A. on
this list. Maybe, I should include residents of England.

A half-baked idea? Not hardly. I am quoting from Wolff-Curran
Delirium Studies. If you have a problem with the research, I
suggest you contact the good doctors. Desmond Curran was an M.D.
located in London, England. Wolff in New York City.

Careful of the water you drink and try to cut down on the number
of sandwiches you eat.
