Should humans be given the ability to toggle when they feel pain?

    Being someone who suffers from chronic pain, I'd love to selectively turn off pain. Yeah, turning off pain can be a stupid choice when your life's at risk, but turning off a migraine for the third day in a row so I can actually get some work done isn't going to shorten my lifespan.

    Upside of chronic pain suffering: I have a pretty high tolerance to pain.

    Someone needs to invent marijuana and a super pill that knocks sense back into you when you need to function. I hear such a pill is being tested for alcohol already.

    We do. It's called shock, rage, arrogance, etc.
