Proof that we live in a scifi novel: Part 4

So H.G. Wells, Jules Verne, Ray Bradbury, and the like predicted the future in their works in some surprisingly accurate ways, right? Well how's about Flight of the Conchords? You may remember this little gem from their website:

»Conchords Develop Powers.
Last week while visiting New Zealand metropolis Palmerston North city, Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement of Flight of The Conchords were exposed to radiation from an explosion at a power generating wind farm leaving them with super powers. McKenzie found that after exposure to the radiation he was able to send text messages with his mind and Clement reported that he was a bit stronger than usual and could lift about three or four more shopping bags than he usually could. But really full ones though. Effects wore off after ten minutes but during that time McKenzie managed to text his mate Dave "HPPY BRTHDY DAV. I M SNDNG THIS USNG MND".
WELL GUESS WHAT GUYS THAT IS TOTALLY REAL. No freakin joke. Intel is working on an implant that will make it possible to send TEXT MESSAGES FROM YOUR BRAIN.

World: you're so weird.
