Close, but that will prevent translations.

comment What revisions for this draft would be more readable and/or more humorous?
I have a feeling that there's a lot of set-up missing from this snippet -- it would likely register more as the blind leading the blind if you had a chance to see more of these "experts" at work. And the primary audience appears to be a single person (though fallout success would no doubt be welcome as well), so we can assume that her sense of humour is a known quantity.

comment How To Avoid Using Cliches In Storylines?
If you take into account the often-repeated phrase "there are only seven stories" and the number of works written over the years, it seems unlikely that you're going to find something that is entirely novel throughout. Just sayin...

This misses the joke -- the fact that the two "hit men" think that adrenaline and epinephrine are different chemicals that form a deadly combination.

comment Writing your last will and testament
All Wills are Wills (including holograph Wills in the jurisdictions and circumstances where they are recognised), but not all Wills are Testaments. That term is historically and technically reserved for a document given under seal or witnessed. The terminology varies by jurisdiction, but in common usage in the English tradition, any Will bearing witness signatures would be called a Last Will and Testament. But "don't try this at home, kids" is good advice; common words may have a precise legal meaning quite different from their common meaning.

comment How can I write an attention-grabbing first line?
One does have to be rather careful to avoid creating a Bulwer-Lytton award nominee, though.
