The placebo effect is so strange and mysterious, how can fake pills trick ourselves out into feeling better? This video explains all the interesting properties of a placebo, like how one placebo can be half as effective as aspirin while another placebo can be half as effective as morphine. Watch it.

The placebo affect only works if you're an idiot. Last time I used morphine I thought I was floating up into the ceiling and was imagining conversations with people that never took place. Eventually I threw up all over myself. I don't think the placebo can even come close to that kind of affect.
