There were thousands doing it in WW II and didn't do them any harm. But theu were told it was just to keep them awake, not to have to eat and concentrate for ever. Which of course is all right. So I'm told.

Just last night I was researching 'smart drugs' and what can help overcome procrastination other than discipline; the main recommendation above all herbal supplements etc. was actually meth. I did some more research, and saw that both meth & crack cocaine are wildly misunderstood. They've done many tests, and only 15% of users actually develop an addiction to either substance. The only people who become addicted, are those who have no other source of joy. That's to say, when you offer sex, or money, or a thrilling experience some other way to a crack/meth user, they'll take what you're offering over the meth. Just like how we'd have 60% less alcoholics if those alcoholics simply had more going on in life. 

Breaking Bad & GTA certainly don't help the reputation of meth. And I'd still be scared to try it. But, it isn't like... a huge dose of opium. Even heroin isn't bad compared to a lot of other similar compounds. Then there's the fact Speed is just the same as what Adderall is (Speed was also recommended for studying.) 

Shoutout all the drugs.

Chelsea's Premier League title charge can get massive December boost

Chelsea are top of the Premier League, and talk of the title is getting more and more difficult for Antonio Conte to ignore.

Saturday's 3-1 victory over Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium lifted the Blues three points clear of nearest challengers Arsenal, as well as extending their winning streak in the Premier League to eight matches. But recent history reinforced Chelsea's title credentials even before the weekend.

Four of the last six Premier League champions led the table on Dec. 1, as Conte's men did (Leicester City last season were second to City only on goal difference), and the Blues have been top going into the festive period in each of their four title-winning seasons.

All of the league leaders mentioned above were still in top spot by Jan. 1, meaning a good December will go a long way toward cementing Chelsea's status as Premier League title favourites. Conte knows this, which is why he is refusing to comment on his team's chances until the New Year.

Fortunately for the Blues, their five remaining fixtures in December look very favourable: three games against West Brom (H), Sunderland (A) and Crystal Palace (A) are rounded off by home matches against Bournemouth and Stoke City. They don't face another top-six team until Jan. 4, when Tottenham will be looking for revenge at White Hart Lane.

"In the next two weeks, we have three games coming up against so-called lesser teams," Thibaut Courtois said after the City victory. "If we can win these games, we will have gone a long way toward winning the title."

Three of those five matches are at home, and the two away trips are to face the lowest-ranked teams on Chelsea's festive schedule: Sunderland (18th) and Palace (13th). The average league position of their five remaining December opponents is 11.4 -- which is not exactly intimidating to a club on such a run of form.

Given Chelsea's blistering start and good health, taking 15 points from a possible 15 is not inconceivable, though it is unlikely.

The only time Chelsea have won all six of their December fixtures was in the 2005-06 season, when Jose Mourinho's defending champions began the new campaign like a runaway train. A perfect festive run extended the Blues' lead over Manchester United from 10 to 11 points, and a second consecutive title was virtually wrapped up by the end of January.

Still cant believe the miracle he has pulled of with largely the same squad as last year. Fucking legend!

I see this narrative a lot and I'm always confused by it each time I read it.

Conte brought in the following regular starters: Kante, Luiz, Moses, and Alonso.

That's 4/10 outfield players. or 40%. That's close to half the team.

If we look at it just in terms of defensive players, that's 4 out of 7.

These are big changes to the squad.

 

Conte is doing a wonderful job at Chelsea, and I couldn't be happier with him, but can we please stop pretending this is the same squad as last season and that Conte has performed some kind of voodoo?

Let's instead celebrate the fact he's not afraid to cut underpeforming players, or to integrate previously overlooked players into the match day squad, and most importantly that he's got us set up in and playing his brand of football remarkably quickly, and better yet, that it's proving to be incredibly successful.

And out of those only Kante was his number one target.

Could you imagine if he would have gotten his number one targets?

Let's hope the board does a better job next couple of transfer window.

Ofcourse 4/11 is a high percentage.....pretty sure we have more than 11 players.

My comments are directed more towards the likes of Costa, Hazard, Matic, Pedro and even Cahill (at times) who have all shown a remarkable improvements compared to last season.

United spend a lot of money last  few years and not on top.....

Money helps but you need good managers and good team chemistry.
