    Quite an interesting article in the New York Times today. Could it be the end of having to work out?

    Meh. Probably not.

    When they develop a pill that gives me that great feeling of accomplishment when I work out, I might consider it. But that burn after a good workout is just to addictive a drug to drop.

    You take the pills, and I will stay with the weights.

    Probably not. I'm sure some guys will use it as an alternative to steroids.

    Besides, if not for the gym where would I meet guys? The pharmacy? I think not!

    Same here. I'm the only one of my friends that doesn't have a story involving the gym showers.

    Back on topic. There's always 'something' coming out that'll 'replace' working out. They said the same thing for those electrical impulse machines, and look how well that worked out.
