Pfizer's Valentine's Day gift

As seen on Reuters, Viagra plans to offer over-the-counter Viagra pills to British men for the first time ever starting today:


"Men will be able to buy impotence treatment Viagra over the counter

in Britain for the first time from Valentine's Day, chemist chain

Alliance Boots said on Sunday. Three Manchester Boots pharmacies will sell the prescription-only

medication made by U.S. drugs group Pfizer in a pilot program from

February 14. Men aged between 30 and 65 suffering from erectile dysfunction will

be able to buy four Viagra pills for 50 pounds ($97) without having to

get a prescription from a doctor first."

For many, I suppose, this will come as a relief. No more hunting through exotic foreign open-air markets for "organic Viagra" or responding to blatant Viagra spam. Happy Valentine's Day, Pfizer!

How 'dark horses' flip the script of success and happiness

What defines a dark horse? The all-important decision to pursue fulfillment and excellence.

Big Think Books

When we first set the Dark Horse Project in motion, fulfillment was the last thing on our minds. We were hoping to uncover specific and possibly idiosyncratic study methods, learning techniques, and rehearsal regimes that dark horses used to attain excellence. Our training made us resistant to ambiguous variables that were difficult to quantify, and personal fulfillment seemed downright foggy. But our training also taught us never to ignore the evidence, no matter how much it violated our expectations.
