One of the axioms of the QAnon conspiracy which is the end-stage of MAGAitis is that there is a shadowy cabal of elite globalists who harvest the bodies of ritually sacrificed young people for adrenochrome, which in the real world is oxidized adrenaline, but in the fever swamps of conspiracy theorists, is the fictionalized version claimed by Hunter S. Thompson to be derived from the adrenal glands of living humans. According to conspiracy theorists, it's the ultimate high combined with a youth serum meant to keep the Illuminati youthful.
In a creepy corollary to the adrenochrome urban legend, a recent startup called Ambrosia will sell you a blood transfusion from a young donor for a mere eight grand a liter... twelve grand for two liters. It's a legal procedure, even though it poses dangers to recipients, by virtue of the fact that blood transfusions in general are legal, therapeutically important procedures. It has been reported that James Bond villain Peter Thiel was interested in obtaining blood transfusions from the young because he thinks that death is merely a problem to be solved.
The whole thing reeks of lurid legend, with images of sanguivorous vampires and evil countesses (here's where I plug the novel The Countess by Rebecca Johns, which portrays Elizabeth Bathory as something scarier than a vampiress, namely a boss from hell). The very idea of the Masters of the Universe consuming the blood of the young is unsettling, though as St Joseph sang 'it's the best years of your life they want to steal'.
When this therapy inevitably fails, maybe these Tech Titans will go for the stronger stuff that the QAnons are yammering about... after all, in true Randian terms isn't Kokkor Hekkus merely a 'disruptor'?
NOTE: I decided to go Vancian because of a recent post at Tor Books.
