Better Living Through Pharmaceuticals?

I LOVE chocolate. A lot. In fact I am waging a campaign for this food staple to be it's own Group on the Food Pyramid.

But what if (perish the thought) one day I woke up and didn't crave this irresistible treat?

Would I take a pill to make me desire this diet-wrecking confection? Or would I look at the upside to how many calories I would save. I would probably be able to fit into my "skinny" jeans with no problem!

The Little Blue Pill

I was having a conversation with a fellow Menopausal (hormonally-challenged) friend and somehow the conversation turned to the over-abundance of ED and Viagra commercials on T.V.
We both were questioning the value of this drug.

If you no longer desired something, why would you take a pill to get back those urges?

Think about all the time you would save . And what about Brain Cells? It's a known fact that sex kills them. Think about all the stupid things people do in the heat of the moment.

Wouldn't it be better to give your partner a pill to quash their libido?

Think of the upside to more "down-time"!

I spotted this Dragonfly earlier today before I left for work. I never noticed how spider-like the top part of this insect's body is. Fortunately I had my camera and a willing model!
