{Limitless} Would you?

I would normally blog about my weekend, but it was such a odd one, I will need one more day to get all my thoughts in order.  I will tell you this...Christian and his parents were NOT ready for the zoo.  I repeat NOT READY.  We had everything working against us. We had a stubborn, independent, due for his second nap, walking / running toddler {strike 1} there were WAY too many people {strike 2} we did not have snacks and sun block {strike 3}.  He was more fascinated with all the people and DOOR KNOBS he didn't even notice the animals.  He ran up to EVERY door just trying his hardest to break in! In about a month he'll be tall enough to fully grab the knobs and twist.   Matt and I decided we will attempt the zoo again...October 2014 *sigh* I digress...

So, after kiddo went to bed last night (which didn't take too long since he spent the day terrorizing his parents at the zoo he was pretty much spent), the husband and I rented Limitless.  I wanted to see it when it came out, but people with kids rarely get that luxury...you know, freedom.  If you disregard all the wholes in the story line and think of it as JUST A MOVIE, it was kind of interesting.  After the movie, Matt asked me if I could take a pill that gave me limitless intelligence would I take it?  I would like to think that if it was unsafe I would say no...but knowing me, I would think to myself, Well, it won't kill me to try it once, right?   Then he asked me, "What if it took a year off your life...?"  I said, "Depends on when I'm going to die I suppose.  If nothing goes wrong with me and I live to like 98...then dying at 97 doesn't seem all that different..."
Now remember, this is all la-la land talk...I love asking what if  kind of questions.  So readers, I pose the question to you....

If you could take a pill {once a day, everyday} that would give you the ability to use 100% of your brain, would you?  Would you still take it if you knew it would take a year off your life?
