Smart Drugs


Would you take a drug to make yourself smarter? more creative? I have been
seeing quite a few articles and news stories about the possibility of
healthy people being able to take some sort of drug to make themselves
smarter or more creative.

Here is another article

Now there is a drug that is readily available but can easily make a user far
less intelligent and a bit clumsy. It is advertised on television every day.



I could imagine a world where they come up with some that makes people far
more intelligent without side effects and everyone takes it which leads to
people being miserable because they are too smart for whatever hell they are
doing.


I do know that you can be smarter through nutrition and exercise. Try going
on a Pepsi/Twinkie/Taco Bell diet for a month and see how clear headed and
creative you are. I think the process of doing your own cooking makes you
smarter.


To a point, running makes me feel more clear headed but I would not want to
take any pub quiz post half Marathon.


Questions of the day

1.

1)Would you take a drug to make yourself smarter? more creative? more
focused?
2.

2)What drug am I referring to that is readily available that can make
people less intelligent?
3.

3)What would be the downside if suddenly the whole population was 16%
smarter (if this could be measured)
