Fallen ill? Pop a pill. Feel sad? Pop a pill. Too excited? Pop a pill. Took too many pills? Pop a pill. Pills are the correct answers to most of life’s problems because chemistry is one hell of an art and the human body is easily unbalanced.

I half expect a giant beanstalk to sprout out of these things.
