Are these the filler threads until we get to the Caturday one?

Those poor Germans. Nothing more stressful then having to deal with other Germans all day long.

It's Saturday. I'm +1-ing myself.

Definitely gives new meaning to performance enhancing drugs...

Remember kids - if you work in a cubicle you're already dead inside anyway.

Silly Germans

Oh, wait, my espresso is ready

Coffee, and lots of it, is the best legal drug there is.

Oh, how I wish I could afford a beer breakfast.

I still LOVE coffee, but I've cut way back. I've discovered that I function at my optimum in the workplace if I am on nothing. No caffeine, alcohol, or sugar during the week - nothing but a good night's sleep. It took some getting used to, but once everything evened itself out I found that I have a smooth, steady stream of energy all day long but don't get stressed out or irritated as easily.

/Still drink all the coffee and whisky, and eat all the sugar I want on Saturdays

So that's why they always make good stuff.

Endorush works for me...

Wow, a whole article about Germans taking prescription drugs to enhance work performance and not one specific drug mentioned!

I take coffee, lexapro and Xanex to enhance my workplace performance. There's some other drug that also fights off fatigue but also has a number of nice side effects that would help me out even more.

This is Normal. Basically they are calling psychiatric meds 'performance enhancing' .

So, if I want to flip burgers at a McJob, I'm going to need to do some speed and roids?

I live in Germany, and I'm getting a kick out of these replies.

} drug of choice: coffee.

They need to be drugged up on psych meds to tolerate the everyday oddity that is the German toilet (new window)

Whenever folks who have lived or traveled in Germany gather for a beer, sooner or later one subject is sure to rear its ugly head: what is the deal with those toilets?

Properly timed espresso shots and some vitamin supplements seem to be performance enhancing enough. Telecommuting is far more performance enhancing than working in a cube farm though.

/Surfing Fark while pretending to pay attention during long phone meeting, priceless.

This. Everyone knows that world-famous athletes eat them every morning for breakfast.

Concerta's my workplace performance enhancing drug of choice. Or, rather, necessity.

2009-02-14 03:32:08 PM  
so when these Germans take these performance enhancing drugs...
do they become unwavering bands of light?
