Narrator: Heinz Grupert, a brilliant geneticist working for FIAT, the huge pharmaceutical corporation, developed a procedure that made the resultant people faster and stronger, but also increased their brain activity a hundred-fold.
The first apparent downside was that the strength and speed boosting, though considerable, did not have any visible effect on the subject. This was widely viewed as boring.
Unexpected side effects to this procedure included heartburn, sleeplessness, occasional nausea, and the ability to fold their bodies through space using only their minds.
In retrospect, it was decided that Heinz wasn't as much brilliant as he was bizarrely lucky. That luck did, however, transfer well to his gambling habits.
