Molly and Mandy were identical twins. Everyone thought so anyway. You see, both of them were invisible.
H.G. Wells’ invisible man could put on clothes and be seen. With M&M, anything touching their skin turned invisible too, including their clothes.
The twins had one significant difference. Mandy received sudden spontaneous technological insights while in a trance-like state. Ever wonder why GPS receivers got so small so fast? Mandy. Stealth airplanes? Yeah…Mandy.
Since the two were always together, Molly recorded all the trances.
One day, as they sat in Dave’s cafe, Mandy rambled on, perfectly comfortable with talking to an empty chair. She could talk a lot without taking a break. Right in the middle of a sentence, Mandy suddenly fell into a trance. She spoke for ten minutes before the trance finished.
“Isn’t that amazing?” crowed Mandy. “It’s my best insight yet! It would provide unlimited energy to the entire world! It wouldn’t cost much to make!”
The chair across from her suddenly creaked.
“Sorry, hon,” said Molly. “Did I miss something? I really had to pee.”
