Science Missed an Across-the-Board Miracle Drug!

I don’t know how science could have missed it all these years, but there has been a miracle drug under it’s nose. My research indicates a surprisingly well-known drug called aplacebo has been showing very consistent results on any number of ailments.

Sadly, aplacebo has not shown dramatic results in one category, compared to drugs using more complex names, but the magic lies in it’s ability to make small increases in literally thousands of categories.

While Advil may have a 47% success rate helping people suffering from a headache, aplacebo has only 27%. Sounds dim, right? Not exactly. Because advil does nothing for acne, while aplacebo has a 15% positive affect. Aplacebo has also…

Every time we have an inauguration here in the States, I remember that book by Douglas Coupland called Life After God. It’s a wonderful little book of loosely connected short stories about life in our current, western, spiritual vacuum.

In one of the latter stories, Coupland’s character is in New York on business (down from Vancouver, BC) and hears about the inauguration gearing up in DC. He visits, marveling at the crowd and the pomp and circumstance. If you’ve ever attended an inauguration, it’s truly a remarkable scene. Perhaps the closest we can come to feeling a remnant of Rome. Or ancient Greece.

Coupland’s character gives plenty of thought to…
