This is another one of those ideas that you probably will not believe is actually real. But it is.
No doubt you remember hearing about the trillion dollar government stimulus plan that went through the White House last year. Well, a trillion dollars goes a really long way, and at some point you run out of things to give it to, and you start passing it out to pretty much everyone who asks, even if the people asking are crazy nut jobs who will use it to buy cocaine for their lab monkeys. Thats what seems to have happened at Wake Forest. A bunch of mad scientists were given about $71,000 to see what happens when you give cocaine to monkeys.
You may laugh, but I can see where they are coming from on this one. In fact, just the other day I was on my way to work and I started thinking "What if I gave all this coke to a bunch of monkeys?"
Fortunately we have the Internet, and I was able to find out exactly what happens to cokehead monkeys, in very precise detail. Here is an actual, for real, not made up quote from the Wake Forest mad scientists.
The dopamine system of a monkey that snorts lots of coke will be (choose one)
A. Pretty much the same as other dopamine systems
B. Messed up beyond all recognition
