Well, it wasn't quite like that..... I wasn't going to kill myself. In fact, I don't really remember what it was which needed improving, if at all. They showed me some graphs, told me I had an astoundingly high IQ, but that I needed a little work to reach some goals. Then they gave me the funky tin-can machine. That was when I knew I was dealing with fruit-loops. That, and all the stuff about the secret service.
