's next is not a prank, okay?
I wouldn't do that to you
and I'm not doing that to you.
So when you see this, you can't yell
or make any noise or run anywhere.
I know you probably feel like you're
being tricked or made fun of. But you're not.
I promise you, you're not. Okay?
Who was that, Abe?
Let's just wait. Six minutes.
Look, you sure you're okay to drive?
What did you do all day?
The first time through?
I spent the day in a hotel room
in Russellfield.
- I'll just meet you back at the shop.
- I wonder what I did.
- I guess I went back to work.
- Yeah, probably.
Probably just worked, I guess.
Yeah, probably so.
Look, now that I know about this, Abe...
don't do this again, okay?
Not where it affects me.
Go ahead.
Hey, Rachel.
Why not the lottery?
We can if you want,
but it's not until Saturday.
And even if we win the full $10 million,
that's only $200,000 for the next 30 years.
- And that's just one good trade.
- A couple days like this.
- I was just running a test. In and out.
- I want to do what you did.
Exactly what you did.
- The first thing I did is call in sick.
- Okay, I did that.
- Then I drove to the storage facility.
- But I need to drop Lauren at school first.
Then meet me there.
We're going to need both cars.
We need to park yours down the road,
out of sight of the facility.
- Why are we doing that?
- Because we need a ride home.
- What is that...
- It'll make sense.
Okay, I'll be patient.
When I got to the storage room,
I flooded the box with argon...
and I had to tighten it up
to secure the leaks.
- There's leaks?
- There's always leaks.
At 8:30 a. m., I set the timer for 15 minutes...
I jumped in the car,
and drove to Russellfield.
Okay, I lost it.
- What?
- Why the timer?
Because the moment we start those
machines is the moment we'll end up...
- getting out of them, and...
- Right. Got it. Sorry.
I don't want to be standing around
when they do.
While I was on the road at 8:45,
the machine kicked on by itself...
and by 8:49, it was completely warmed up.
In Russellfield, I got a hotel room
and tried to isolate myself.
Wait, what do you mean "isolate"?
I closed the windows,
I unplugged everything in the room...
the telephone, TV, clock, radio, everything.
I didn't want to take the chance
of running into someone I knew...
or seeing something on the news
that might...
If we're dealing with causality,
and I don't even know for sure.
- I just...
- What?
- Took myself out of the equation.
- Err on the side of caution.
Then what did you do all day?
- I just sat there. I had some books, but...
- What? Were you nervous?
It's mind-numbing, all the second-guessing.
"Evacipate. "
At 3:30 p. m.,
I stopped by Williams Medical Supply.
Picked up a Class E oxygen tank and mask.
I called my mutual fund company and asked
which stock in their mid-cap fund...
had the greatest percentage gain that day.
The idea was just to get enough information
for one good trade.
Can we just download chart data
and trade on each movement?
But if we do that, I want to use the library
in Russellfield, use their computers.
So, I got to the storage room at about 3:15
and cut off the power to the box.
It cycled down to a tolerable level
at about 3:19.
The trick is to get in
after it reaches a comfortable level...
but before it shuts off completely.
There's a window there.
So, does it hurt?
Yeah, it does a little.
It's not bad if you wait for the right time.
It's like a small static shock.
- Once you're in, you're fine, though.
- What?
I know you've done it,
and I can only assume that you don't have..
