JZ's Lab' is a social topic on the board Random Insanity created by the user Jedi Zero. JZ's Lab is a topic that allows anybody to roleplay by using various shape-changing formulas. Nearly every topic begins with the first post listing the various formulas that are available to use in RPs. This list is constantly changing as anybody can add formulas as they like (though it is often up to more senior members of the topic if the will be included), and sometimes the list is revamped completely (Such as in the event that the previous list was lost). However, despite the formula list appearing in nearly every Lab topic, the formulas are not limited to what is on the list. Some members even make up formulas on the fly just to use on other people or themselves.
The current Lab usually starts out as follows:
Hello, and welcome to the Lab! This is the place to come if you want to role-play/have fun/mess around/talk/socialize/do crap/other stuff.
Anyway, have fun!
Partial list of formulae:
Aging/Youth formula. Increases or decreases your age. Can never be lethally potent, but it can be potentially embarrassing. Can either change your mentality or leave it alone.
Animal formula. Turns you into any animal you wish, mythical or real, anthro or non-anthro.
Animal-person formula. Gives you certain traits of an animal. Claws, wings, fangs, a tail, and so on. You may also take on the animal's behavior and instincts, so beware.
Anthro dragon formula. With this, you grow scales, a tail, and wings, and get the ability to breathe an element of your choice to a certain extent.
Balloon formula. Turns your skin to vinyl, your innards to air, and your navel to an air nozzle. If you pop, you'll automatically repair, but completely deflated. Popping is quite painful, too, so be careful with formulae. The antidote comes in a special non-popping needle-like device.
Chimera formula. Changes the user into a form comprised of three different creatures, each one individually transforming a part of the body (head, torso, lower body) and changes each one into a separate form. It makes for some complimentary forms and some rather odd forms. It has no direct antidote and is actually IMMUNE to the master antidote. The only way to get out of it is to use three antidotes, one for each of the three forms given to you.
Chocolate formula. Turns you into a chocolate statue of your current form. You can be eaten, but it won't hurt. You won't regenerate until you are antidoted, so use with caution. Comes in hollow and caramel filled varieties.
Fusion fomula. You fuse with the next object you touch. Other than the floor or wall or ceiling, of course.
Growth/Shrink formula. Increases or decreases your size. Its limits are 20 times your size and 1/20th your size. Infamous for creating wardrobe malfunctions by not changing the size of your clothes along with you.
Hallucination formula. Gives one confusing and potentially traumatizing hallucinations. Beware.
Heartless formula. It turns you into a heartless. Booga booga booga. Go kill something.
Jello formula. Turns one into a living, moving mass of jello. (It is also possible to swim in and breathe the person.) Comes in numerous flavors.
Master antidote. This very nice formula completely returns one completely to their normal form—except for one thing which won't change back. (For example, if you were an anthro dragon, you might retain scales or the ability to breathe fire.)
Mental link formula. Creates a mental bond between the next sentient being you touch. Emotions and pain are shared, as are mental states.
Pinball formula. Makes the person ricochet off of all surfaces for varying amounts of time.
Plushie formula. Turns one into a small, cuddly plushie! Comes in animate and inanimate versions.
Pokémon formula. Turns you into a Pokémon. Comes in many varieties, in both anthro and non-anthro forms. Legendaries not included.
Reflective formula. Makes your entire body as perfectly reflective as a mirror. Not recommended for ectotherms.
Tree formula. Turns the victim into a tree. Comes in both evergreen and deciduous varieties.
Wereplushie formula. The victim turns into a life-sized living plushie of themself whenever the moon is out. Antidoted with armal plushie antidote.
Zombie formula. Turns the victim into a zombie. Note that if the victim is revived and dies, they will become a zombie again. Incapable of infecting others.

It has become a tradition in recent renditions of the Lab to include a note at the bottom of the list, usually something witty having to do with the topic's title.
