To Whom It May Concern...

Dear World,

If I ever am kidnapped by a crazy scientist who wants to harvest my pituitary gland, and during the last-minute rescue I go into cardiac arrest, and the bad guy you were holding a gun on has run away anyway, please attempt standard CPR.

Please do not call your father (who, despite being a research scientist and not a physician and also despite having spent the last 30 years in a mental institution seems to be completely up-to-date in the theory of modern defibrillation techniques) on your cell phone and ask him to help you use random lab equipment and 120v A/C current to construct a field defibrillator out of an oscilloscope and a pile of phone books.

Standard chest compressions and rescue breathing would be fine. Thank you.

That is all.

Duly noted.

Fine for character development, but didn't really pass the reality test-- if we can apply that test to a program that features pseudo-science as a major trope.

Oh, and if I'm going to age from an infant to an old man in half-an-hour, for god's sake, give me some food! Protein mass is needed!
