Well, I can’t afford it now. But the price isn’t very different from the cost of a college education, and the benefit is at least comparable, possibly greater. So it’d definitely be worth saving up for.
Except I think I would want to invest in the next generation before myself. The earlier the age at which you get the pill, the longer you have to take advantage of the increased intelligence. So I’d get them for my nieces and nephew first, and any children I might have myself, before I got my own.
Of course, like Shodan, this is all contingent on rock-solid evidence that these things work and are safe.
running coach, the reason IQ tests only go up to 200 is because there just aren’t enough people to compare to at that level to provide a meaningful baseline. But if these pills became commonplace, then there would be people to compare to, and so a higher-limit test could be constructed. That said, though, you almost certainly don’t have an IQ of 185.
