(I can't really say if the "true" Puritan work ethic would entail saying no to this, as I'm not a Puritan and I don't have any to ask.)</p> <p>I have a work ethic, but it involves maximizing efficiency and results, not effort. There's <i>always</i> more work to be done. </p> <p>Of course in real life I don't expect any such pill to ever emerge; even though it's likely we could produce something close there's always side effects.</p> http://www.jerf.org/iri/post/2797#comment23 by Anon Ymous http://www.jerf.org/iri/post/2797#comment22<p>What's the down side? I can't see any reason to say no.</p> http://www.jerf.org/iri/post/2797#comment22
