Earlier today I was switching channels on the TV and heard something unexpected. Apparently some research group is looking for people to participate in an induced constipation study. I just saw the end of the commercial, so I didn’t hear what the compensation was (if it was mentioned), but it would have to be a lot. Actually, I’m not sure you can put a price on being regular.
I don’t know what it feels like to be constipated, but I figure it would be quite bad after a while. And using experimental drugs to get there just seems like a really bad idea. I don’t even want to know what the potential side-effects of that are… Besides, shouldn’t the drugs be fixing constipation, not causing it?
That whole scenario just sounds wrong. I hope it’s not some scheme of the Important Evil Genius trying to rule the tri-state area with constipation… it sounds like some lame plan he’d make up.
