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!

Time of death is considered when a person has gone into cardiac arrest. This is the cessation of the electrical impulse that drive the heartbeat. As a result, the heart locks up. The moment the heart stops is considered time of death. But does death overtake our mind immediately afterward or does it slowly creep in?
