Are you sure it's safe for me to do that?

We have had the latest build of the app to play with since Monday and boy are we excited.  The thing that measures anxiety is working well.  The sessions with the spiders are looking good and we had our man Russ put them through their paces.  He even managed to get through the one with the spider climbing up the bathplug cord even though he found it quite hard.  On that session he had to help the spider escape the bathtub of death and dodge some lethal water drops falling from the taps.  Even though he really didn't want to put his fingers anywhere near that spider he still wanted see what happened when the spider got to the top.  The session seemed to work as planned: to win Russ had to keep his eyeballs fixed on the spider.  His anxiety meter result: up 84%.  But he made it!  Let me tell you, one of the things I like the most about this project is having Russ as our guinea pig!
