"You'll feel like you can build the Death Star with your bare hands!" That's what my friend told me before letting me sample one of his Ritalin pills. I admit I was excited. I had planned on compiling a list of words that rhymed with orange and figuring out what the sound of one hand clapping was like but twenty five miligrams later I just felt a little sleepy. The drowsiness may have been the medication or my lack of sleep the previous night. Either way I was a bit let down. If you can't rely on drugs improving your life what else do you have?
