LOL at the xkcd :P

I'd take the red pill and use it to make myself rich (like in Limitless) then I'd just chill :P

Anyone else do that?


I have a bad habit of replying to topics before reading the original post in its entirety, and sometimes it gets me into trouble. :oops:

I read this one, though. Just thought the comic was funny. Something I would probably do in the same situation.

Can you sleep at least a few hours a night with the red pill?
Do you have to "socialize" if you take it?
Can I just go to the gym, walk my dog, play football w/hubby and go horseback riding?

If so, RED, RED, RED!

I wanna do so much, but never seem to have the energy. :tongue: :bounce:

A genie pops out of a lamp and offers you two pills. The blue one makes you think and perceive the world like most people do, effectively "curing" you. The red pill doesn't change anything about you except that you now have limitless energy to spend on socializing, going places, doing stuff, and all that other life stuff. Which pill would you take? And no, you can't have both!

Now why did you choose that?


I did not respond at all, because the question has little use even as a thought experiment. Of greatest importance, your blue pill is impossible - change of that order would be akin to destruction of the individual and would in any case not alter what for the sake of brevity I'll call a person's position in the world.

Red pill, red pill, red pill! I would just love to have more opportunity to get out more and meet people and get a boyfriend who I love (and who ain't married), and be out and about more, doing more with friends and having a nice little crowd and sharing experiences - without Social Phobia stopping me. I would just love that.


I don't think I would really need or want to take the blue pill because I think I more or less see the world as other people do, maybe a few difficulties of conformism is preventing me from accepting certain facts about it. One thing is, I am not that logic - if questions like these pop up I am willing to use my imagination and answer, whereas other Aspies here seem to give explanations how it is impossible and don't seem to think that these aren't relavent to real life, it's just for fun and to get your imagination working.

I can't remember what these kind of questions are called, but I think it begins with an S.

I assumed it was about sex because the only pills I hear of that are blue are like Viagra.

Having limitless energy to spend on socializing, going places, doing stuff, & all that other life stuff would NOT be of any help to me if I still have the autistic mindset because I would still have the same problems dealing with others & things that I had before. & it actually may be worse for me because I'd want to do more stuff due to having energy but I'd have problems being able to do it due to my autism brain. I'd defiantly chose the blue pill

I have to say neither as though the energy loss is aweful, if I take a pill that enables me to have boundless energy and socialize... I am not keen on socializing... I don't really know what it means, but in my area of the country it means spending time in pubs drinking, and I don't want to do that. I hate parties and things like that. I will go if I am required to go, but it is not my thing. A cure for me would be to give understanding to those who don't see that parties and socializing are everyones cup of tea... And I don't even like tea!

Definitely red. I prefer my own experiences and I have abilities in things I wouldn't like to lose. I feel like some degree of uniqueness is actually necessary to the health of a society.

Haha. Purple! Not on the list... I'd orobably take half a blue pill just to combat the energy loss part!
