    Geek culture: high pressure and deadlines.

    A few people I knew/know used meth occasionally (as in, very rarely) as a productivity drug.  

    Scared the living shit out of me to hear about it.  But none the less these individuals managed to avoid going down the slippery slope.  

    Personally I would have preferred that they never got within five miles of that shit.  But empirical facts deserve to be reported even if they are not in accord with our preferences.

    This is not to say that anyone can or should attempt to use meth "safely."  It's Russian Roulette with an unknown number of bullets in the revolver.  If the pressure of work creates a temptation to use any stimulant stronger than caffeine, it's time to get a new job.  

    "Minus two votes for the Democrat" equals "plus one vote for the Republican." Arithmetic doesn't care about your feelings.

      It was called "Pervitin". Just saw a reference that 35 million tablets were distributed to the Wehrmacht to keep 'em at 'em.

      Blitzkrieg, indeed.
