Wonder Pills


I couldn't ignore this story. The Israeli Air Force is looking into the possibility of giving its jet pilots viagra to help lessen the effects of altitude. In other words, to keep them up longer.

Apparently in tests, mountaineers said it worked for them - they don't get so light-headed when they get to the summit. Doctors will now presumably be inundated with patients who claim to have taken up extreme sports and need a prescription.

All of this is great if you climb mountains or fly jets, but those of us who spend all day at lower altitutes sitting at a computer could do with some wonder pills too:
  • Monday Morning Sickness Tablets: So that the week can at least start on a positive note.
  • Corporate Anti Inflammatory Drugs: To be taken as required with emails and newsletters containing corporate and management bullshit.
  • IT Painkillers: Hallucinogenics to make IT downtime pass more enjoyably.
  • Silent Sleeping Tablets: To stop you snoring when you doze off during meetings (or any other time for that matter)
  • Bat Anti-Flatulents: See Bee's blog for further details.
  • Viagra: They should at least try it and see what happens. It might increase productivity.
Some people believe they have already found a wonder cure to many of the above ailments. Namely, blogging...

Is there a pill that will shut coyotes up at night? I mean they've already eaten all the neighborhood cats so why do they still come here with all their Indian noises? no, they don't howl like wolves, but they make Penny howl so what's that all about?

Bee said...

Put me down for 1 million of those Bat ANy-Flat.

Dan, I didn't know you had a pot problem...???

jean knee, aouuuuuuuuuuuuu!

Tracy:

You're awake early - I almost said "up" - a word with far too many meanings today ;-)

Dan:

It might dent productivity a bit, though!

I don't think they're viagra pills - it was a random picture off Wiki.

Jean Knee:

An arsenic pill would probably do the trick. You should have poisoned all the cats before they ate them.

Bee:

You'd have thought that at least they'd have come up with something that would neutralise the smell, or turned it into lavender or something ;-)

Bee:

I had a pot problem at school. I have hot hands, and my sweat used to ruin the clay ;-)

Jean Knee said...

Hey, Bee you could grind up some beano and lace their food with it.


Brian, those hot hands sound intriguing, you could probably mold plastic

Tracy said...

You know, Dan's joint commment along with Jean Knee's neighbor comment reminded me of a news story that happened in my home town. The local cops found 40 plants in a local corn field but had no leads on who it belonged to so they put an ad in the paper that said "Found 40 plants. If yours call the police at ..... for a safe return." They had to take the ad out of the paper because they were getting thousands of calls from people claiming it.
Maybe they were thinking to save the weekly sicknesses?

"Random picture off Wiki"

Sure it was Brian, sure it was...

Jean Knee:

They're not that hot, nothing like that guy off the Fantastic 4...

Tracy:

Crazy...

Dan:

I don't care what you think, you're still not getting any...

Bee said...

::SIGH::
I'm missing all the fun!

Jean Knee said...

no, Bee
the fun part will be you describing your fun day with Oz


Dan wants some of Brian's viagara.

Do you want me to share a midol with you?

Dan said...

none needed, I'm still in my thirties ;)
