Staying Up During Long Flights

A team of Argentine scientists reports that they may have found something to help jet lag — Viagra. When they gave the drug to hamsters, the animals adjusted more quickly to a six-hour change in their light-dark cycle, which is equivalent to the time change when flying from New York to Paris. Unfortunately it only works in one direction — what would be like flying eastbound. When they raised the Viagra dose, jet lag recovery time was cut in half. Unfortunately — or is that fortunately? — the higher dose caused hamster erections. Membership in the Hamster Mile High Club is expected to skyrocket.
