If there was a drug that would make it much easier for you to learn, and made to process complex thoughts much faster and easier, but it would atrophy your body, and very likely shorten your life by 10%-15%, would you take the drug?

I suspect a lot of people would. Will we want to be in shape, most people like potential for success to inteligence. And I can't help but wonder if people make brain steroids, what societies reaction would be.

A couple people asked where to get a Pingucam, so I did some research....

Ezirith had a picture from http://www.norbridge.no/ with the Pingucam. They do sell webcams, but I did not see this one. I have sent them a message asking if it is still available. But, that is not where Ezirith got it. She got it on a Norwegen auction site: http://my.qxl.no/accdb/viewItem.asp?IDI=18414670

Unfortunately I have no idea what the page says, and frankly I'm too lazy to babel fish it.
