This is really Great News! If it works, I can just picture Reuters, and other journalism outlets, requiring their employees take this medication. It would certainly help eliminate much of the mindless drivel they spout out on a constant basis. Also, there are many on the forum circuit, who could greatly benefit from this treatement. Wink1

BERLIN (Reuters) - A German scientist has been testing an "anti-stupidity" pill with encouraging results on mice and fruit flies, Bild newspaper reported on Saturday.

It said Hans-Hilger Ropers, director at Max-Planck-Institute for Molecular Genetics in Berlin, has tested a pill thwarting hyperactivity in certain brain nerve cells, helping stabilise short-term memory and improve attentiveness.

"With mice and fruit flies we were able to eliminate the loss of short-term memory," Ropers, 62, is quoted saying in the German newspaper, which has dubbed it the "world's first anti-stupidity pill."
The kind of stupidity you refer to is emotion-based, however. They would need a pill to kill emotions - and who would ever want to take that?
