Having fun with a potentially debilitating condition
Kay Underwood, 20, has the rare, momentary-muscle-relaxing disorder of cataplexy, which causes her to collapse to the floor during extremes of emotion, including laughter. "I have learned a few tricks, like locking my knees together or grabbing on to something" to prevent falling. On the other hand, she and her friends think it's great sport to do something funny to make Kay fall. Daily Telegraph (London)

Is there some way of inducing cataplexy in othes? Say, some kind of rare plant I could feed to my smug neighbour that would cause him to collapse whenever he trims his hedges onto my car?
