As you might've guessed from the title, the author of this document has been recently exposed to a very dangerous, mind-disturbing lloigor of a book, co-authored by Robert Shea and Robert Anton Wilson. Thus, some of the references in this manual will appear slightly amusing to the illuminated ones and obscure to the mehums (see what I mean?). As a matter of fact, most of it is plain gibberish, so don't let the silly remarks distract you into ignoring the serious and important stuff contained in the manual. (What can I say? Writing an LA manual, of all things, is such an unilluminizing experience that you almost have to introduce a factor which makes it worthwhile. Just be grateful I did not employ the writing style of the authors of "The Illuminatus! Trilogy.") For what it's worth, though, I hope I've intimidated you into reading the book, and I also hope this manual proves to be useful otherwise, as a guide to being a successful Fnord! Lab Assistant.
