Work Time (FNZVBPN7)

Bossman: Ryan, did you get a temperature for tank Ra*?
Ryan: Twenty-nine point five.
Bossman: Twenty-nine?
Ryan: Twenty-nine point five.
Bossman: Celsius?
Ryan: Celsius.
Bossman: How far into the cap is that?
Ryan: About three feet.
Bossman: You reached your hand three feet into the tank?
Ryan: No, I used this.
Bossman: For how long did you keep the thermometer submerged?
Ryan: Twenty seconds.
Bossman: And what were you thinking about while you did this?
Ryan: I was thinking I wonder what the temperature of this tank will be.
Bossman: Did you have any preconceived notions about this tank or its temperature?
Ryan: The fruit was hot, so . . .
Bossman: Do you think it's possible that part of your mind wanted tank Ra to be twenty-nine degrees celcius?
Ryan: Twenty-nine point five, and no.

That's pretty rad. You should lobby for a "Cthulhu".

(Also, I just realized what "FNZVBPN" stands for. I'm slow.)
