Ann: Hey Nick. You look like a panda with those black circles under your eyes! How was your Europe trip?
Nick: It was awesome. I had a hard time dealing with my jet lag, though.
Ann: I bet you drank a lot of coffee. I saw a story yesterday that will make your eyes pop out of your head.
Nick: What story?
Ann: According to a report I read in the China Post, researchers say they have figured out that Viagra is useful for treating jet lag. They experimented with the drug on hamsters, and it appears that the little rodents recovered from jet lag 50% faster!
Nick: Wow, that is amazing! I guess I'll have to take some Viagra with me next time I go abroad! But here comes another question. What do I do about the "side effect" of Viagra?
