Besides a pill that can make you instantly thin, I thought that the next coolest thing Big Pharma could make was a drug that could keep you awake for two days, make your brain sharper, and have little side effects after the drugs wear off.

Popular Science has reported that there’s a new super-eugeroic drug called armodafinil on the way, which outperforms its predecessor, Modafinil, a drug that was written about two years ago that enables you to stay awake for 40+ hours with close to full mental capacity and with few side effects. There is, of course, a healthier way to keep your mind sharp, like working out on regular basis. But that would destroy the entire purpose of Big Pharma trying to solve our health problems with a pill. Imagine all those poor, jobless pharmacists if we all exercised for better health instead of popping pills. Although, I have to admit, if I did take armodafinil, I’d still be lazing around and playing the PS2. Which, when you think of it, will come in pretty handy when God Of War 2 comes out.
