Placebo Day

Good morning y'all. Today is Placebo Day. However, from the statistics I've seen, 73% of those that were exposed to real days responded well as opposed to 27% of those who were given a placebo. *wink*

Yeah, what the heck is with placebos anyway? (It's pronounced plah-see-bow, Betty) Anyway, it's kinda silly. "We're going to test you all on this new medication for the deadly disease you have. Half of you will get the real thing... the other half will get a placebo. You won't know which one you're getting, though. Good luck."

I wonder if they've ever done psychological studies on these people to find out which ones had positive frames of mind versus negative ones. "Let your mind go, and your body will follow." You see, I still believe that there's nothing that one's body can't accomplish with a mind dedicated to doing something. Sometimes we just have trouble convincing our minds to believe in it.

At any rate... have a good day (whether it be real or not) and don't think about the fact that this wasn't a real entry today. *wink*
