Super-intelligent gerbil-people will be the end of us all.
As you slip on your Special Blend Elements Trucker Hat the windowless black van appears from around the corner. You turn to run, but it's too late. They have you now, in their clutches, and you begin to sweat into your snazzy new lid. Their tiny, pink eyes (and adorable whiskered faces) peer into your fear-laden face as they remove 'the instrument' and go to work dismembering what's left of your sanity.
