The last time Woody Allen made a funny movie was in 1973,
but for some reason people keep going to see his films. The
funny movie I'm referring to is Sleeper, in which a
man from the 70's is cryogenically frozen and re-animated
hundreds of years in the future. The film made several
daring predictions -- that VW Bugs would still be running
in 200 years, that McDonald's would be serving its
quadrillionth customer, that people could be frozen and
re-animated, and that cigarettes would be the new health
The first three items in that list anyone could imagine -- no great leaps of
faith there, but cigarettes? Good for you?
You betcha! Your doctor may soon be prescribing nicotine for medical uses,
including treating Alzheimer's Disease & Tourette's Syndrome. It may even be
helpful for a whole range of brain diseases.
Too bad that cigarettes may give you cancer and kill you before you're old
enough to develop Alzheimer's.
