What Kind of Pill Would You Concoct?

I don't know about you, but I couldn't be more excited that Oprah is back from her Summer vacation! If you caught yesterday's episode, Dr. Oz stopped by to talk medicine and answer viewers questions about some recent headlines; one of which was a pill to make you exercise. While the jury is still out as to whether or not it works, it got me thinking about miracle drugs. Just think how much easier our lives would be if we really could take a little pill to encourage us to work out, or for the sake of having fun take a dating pill, a beauty pill, a motivation pill, even a career building pill? So if you could develop something like that, tell me, what would you concoct?

A pill that would make it possible for me to look exactly how I wanted to. It would control my curves and my hair and skin and makeup etc. Some days I would like longer hair and a bigger butt and other days I'd like a little butt and a bob. That wouls be so much fun.

I'd love to have a instant hair dresser pill. I hate doing my hair! I'd also love to have an instant vacation pill too! A win the lottery pill would be nice, a teleporting pill would be amazing. An over all feel good or happy pill that you could take when you are sad and you would start laughing or just be in a really great mood. I dunno, an everything you could ever want pill? LOL.

Thats such a good idea GlowingMoon! Besides a "get rich quick pill" and a "teleporting pill", I want to create an "instant make-up artist and hair dresser pill" -just add water and they pop up to get you looking beautiful anywhere anytime! hahaha

A mind-reading pill....a "love-potion" pill....a pill for realizing your goals in life, as well as the best dreams from your subconscious (They can be marketed as a pair, like DayQuil and NyQuil)....I also like CYL's pill suggestion. I guess a pill that keeps you healthy yet slim and toned too, albeit one that isn't a gimmick like other real pills like that out there. This question is very Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and The Science of Sleep. I like it :-)

i would want the pill that could make me the CEO or head of a company that's successful. one of my biggest frustrations isn't that i think i need to lose weight or anything, but it's one of those things that i feel like i'm not advancing as quickly as i'd like and i know that i'd be a GREAT manager if i had more of an opportunity. i would love to have the position, salary and authority that comes with being a CEO

A hair-growing pill. A pill that makes hair grow long overnight, like two feet overnight. :) I've been longing for long hair for a long time. :) My hair is thick and plentiful, but it takes FOREVER to grow. I think this pill would be a great idea for those who just got a bad haircut, and want to outgrow it overnight. They could start over the next day, and get a nice, new haircut. :)

What I read wasn't that it was a pill that motivated you to work out, it was a pill that tells the body that it DID work out, aka, you contracted the muscles, etc. I could have read it wrong, though.

I would make a "make a perfect bf instantly pill". It would turn any old random guy into your dream guy, lol lol. Or I would make an "anti dumb/ignorant pill".

I like the idea of a pill that makes me want to work out! At first I was thinking a weight loss pill, but that wouldn't get me back in shape and I really want to be toned again...just too damn tired in the evenings!!!

A pill to forget..kinda like the experiments in "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind".. although that movie just brought up about a million internal conflicts with that..but think of, How happy is the blameless vestal's lot! The world forgetting, by the world forgot. Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind! Each pray'r accepted, and each wish resign'd." ;0)
