Drugs

Neuroenhancement, brain boost, mind hacking, or simply drug abuse?

I just read a fascinating article in The New Yorker that really opened my eyes. On the one hand, I’ve been known to quaff a Red Bull or two to get me through a particularly trying meeting (or maybe to get a few more hours out of a good Friday night) but on the other I’ve been known to speak out against our over-medicated society.

Go check this out, I practically guarantee you’ll learn something.

One thought on “Drugs”

  1. I remember the gist of that. Not good. If all your competition is doing that, you’re pretty much forced into it to keep up.

    We’re already pushing bodies and minds designed to match the speed of a camel, to match a speeding bullet. C’mon to the other side of town, I’ll show you what’s left after that.

Go ahead and say it.
