Anonymous asked: Peter Murphy awakens from his sound slumber, startled awake by some awful sensation. His wife, worried, turns to him. "Peter," she whispers urgently. "Are you all right?" Peter furrows his brow, as if in pain. "I think..." he begins, then falters. "I think I just...lost a fan."
So, for some reason there’s some new research on this antibiotic I took throughout high school to help with acne.
“Scientists think the drug [minocycline] may clear the brain of distractions like, in this case, arousal, to improve focus for making rational decisions…Other studies have demonstrated that minocycline can improve patients’ focus on social cues, encourage sober decision making and improve the symptoms associated with schizophrenia and depression.”
I read this and my narcissism takes over and asks “How did this drug affect me? How was I different in high school than I otherwise would have been? WHAT DOES IT MEAN?”
Reality kicks in and I realize: it means nothing. I don’t recall being overly rational in high school (who is?) but I do remember being poor at picking up social cues and my decision making certainly had its spotty moments. I DEFINITELY over-trusted pretty girls.
Now I’d say I tend to be more rational, to a fault, and better at social cues though still often inept. I probably still over-trust pretty women though my definition has changed, so maybe that’s improvement?
