31. No, that came along much later but I was a very lucky college sophomore doing a part time job at
minimum wage. I had no idea at the time about the tranquilizer gun project. One of my jobs was measuring the drug dose for syringes.

Again, I knew nothing about the technical aspects of the research, I was just a lab assistant doing a simple job requiring little training.

Sometimes being at the right time at the right place can lead to warm memories.
