“The OFF Button” by Mike Pihlman

Genre: Horror

Jake is a micro-biologist interested in discovering the frequency (some call it “resonance frequency”) of the human body for a Department of Defense project.

A complicated task since the human body is a complicated machine.

One day in the lab, Jake picked up the TV remote they had been using to control some experiments (it was modified to produce an electromagnetic pulse at a frequency of 1.1666 Hz).

He jokingly pointed the remote at his babbling graduate assistant and hit the OFF button.

The assistant died.

He was OFFED, and Jake found what he needed to request more funding.
