Go On -- Take Drugs!
The initial euphoric and mind-expanding effects of intoxicants are often considered beneficial by liberals and other perverts.
But the serious aftereffects of long-term abuse of dangerous and mind-altering drugs -- bipolarism, paranoia, mood swings, death, and chronic withdrawal -- these are the true benefits.
Whereas in most fields of endeavor these personality problems are a major source of difficulty in securing a future, in academia they are a positive boon!
We heartily recommend at least four consciousness-addling binges a week for maximum effect.
