The Originally Celebrated Curiously Strong
In an attempt to understand how acetaminophen might help some musculoskeletal pain I have, I tried to conduct a blinded placebo-controlled trial on myself. It wasn't very successful, which might have been for several reasons. First, I'm pretty sure I could tell when I got an altoid rather than the trial medication. Second, the acetaminophen I was using is expired. I'm pretty sure nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories would have been a better intervention. Oh well, this is why I never made it as a research scientist.
