Southbridge in "The Irvhank Effect"Edit

The physics laboratory that Irv Farmer and Hank Jeter worked at was near Southbridge. Farmer's girlfriend lived in Southbridge. Farmer was actually supposed to be in Southbridge the night the two first discovered the Irvhank Effect.[1] When Farmer realized the significance of Jeter's briefly disabled watch, he decided not to go to Southbridge, preferring to do further experimentation.[2]
