Science May Soon Do What Jagermeister Has Done For Generations
Over at the Reason blog, science reporter Ron Bailey notes a possible breakthrough in a drug that wipes out memories:
The New York Times is reporting that neuroscience researchers at Brooklyn's SUNY Downstate Medical Center have developed a drug which can erase memories (at least in lab rats). This development may bring us closer to the scenario outlined in the the 2004 Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet vehicle, The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, in which two hapless lovers have the memories of their failed love affair erased.Bailey goes on to describe it in greater detail but I think Reason commenter "Warty" gets right to the bottom line:
So it's like alcohol, but without the side effect of banging fat chicks.
