Sleeping pills that cram 8 hours of sleep into 4? Pills to keep me awake for 48 hours with no side effects? Where has this been all my life?

I think it's particularly adorable how they compare modafinil to the birth control pill. Lord knows that one doesn't have any major side effects, either.

Yea, except for giving babies to Satan. ;-)

Seriously, I have no idea where the medical anti-birth control even comes from.

Um, I *was* being sarcastic about the side effects of the birth control pill, and now I can't tell what part of your response to my comment is sarcastic, let alone what that second sentence means. Stupid sarcasm. I don't even know what I'm saying anymore.

I'm always a bit disturbed by things like this.

Then again, I very rarely even consume caffeine, so maybe I'm not the best person to consult.

I agree with Vrable. Sleep, especially dreaming, does a lot of very useful things, and we only know about a quarter of them. I'm noting a distressing lack of any mention of long-term studies, and I could see some potential nastiness showing up after years of popping that stuff.
