Why is it that I can spend copious amounts of time doing everything but working. I like to learn and Wikipedia is Satan. I can spend hours upon hours reading and learning, recovering lost information from the various manifestations of neurotoxicity that plague my mind via various college inebriants.
Nevertheless, every animal species examined to date has been found to have cannabinoid receptors in the brain.
Four case histories were reported which indicated that the level of physical activity increased immediately after smoking ganja, as did caloric expenditure, but not productivity. It seemed to be that after smoking ganja the workers engaged in more intense and concentrated labour, but this was done less efficiently, especially by heavy users. Contrary to the hypothesis that cannabis use produced an impairment in motivation, they concluded: "In all Jamaican settings observed, the workers are motivated to carry out difficult tasks with no decrease in heavy physical exertion, and their [mistaken] perception of increased output is a significant factor in bolstering their motivation to work." (p79).

Interesting stuff. I'm tackling some math problems and watching the market, what is everyone else up to today?
