Yes, it's a very nasty condition that affects those living near the Great Salt Lake. The skull becomes semi-permeable, so the very strong solution of the lake sucks out the moisture in the brain, especially of those whose brains are devoid of any discernible content. Victims suffer from delusions of grandeur and a strange need for multiple wives and can be recognised by the extreme whiteness of their teeth.
