I'll stick with vodka.

If it works so well with memory why do women forget to take it?

Or you could just fark your way to the top. Birth control would assist with that too.

Verbal memory only. So she'll remember that thing you said to her four years back and bring it up when she wants to win an argument.

The most important thing to remember is that, most times, they're desperate and they REALLY REALLY REALLY WANT TO LIKE YOU A LOT. There's no reason to be nervous.

When there's vomit on the piano, it's time to end the audition.

/no, wait, that was Morning After pill

And depending on the type of progesterone in the pill, a woman's capacity to perform functions such as reading maps - known as visuospatial ability - can improve or decline.

This explains why women can't drive: they're baby crazy.

This is why I only date women with IUDs. Can't have 'em using more than 10% of their brain that is already a 1/3 the size of my own.

I suppose this is important, depending on your strategy for getting the job.

I don't think *anybody* wants to see me grow boobs just to get a job.

I call bs!!! I'm on the pill, and have been for the past few interviews I've gone on. Didn't get hired for any of those jobs. Dammit!!!

No, not just to get a job. Also for shiats and giggles.

I didn't think it was possible for a woman's map-reading ability to get any worse.

Too dammed cleaned-up. Would it kill you to throw a little slutty into the mix?

I'll stick with the Xanax, thanks.

I went on the pill once. It killed my sex drive.

/"oh so THAT'S how it prevents pregnancy! Can't get pregnant if you don't have sex!"

I'm unemployed and looking for a new job right now, and I can't FATHOM being so desperate that I'd pop one of those.

"Gee, I have a slightly upset stomach! Better schedule an appendectomy to 'cure' it!"

You took too much! Now you're overqualified!

They're dangerous and a terrible idea: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hormonal_contraception#Side-effects

The side effects of farking may be a pain to deal with, but they're side effects that humans have evolved to deal with. We have no evolutionary history with "pills to make life easier."

Just take a melatonin pill for crying out loud.  They're perfectly legal.

Eh, Melatonin doesn't do anything. Or maybe that's my tolerance speaking. Never did anything for me though.

Hammonds, is that you?

The last woman I date (and married, and divorced) was on birth control and her verbal memory was astounding.  Why, she would win an argument by bringing up something I said offhand and under my breath from  five years previous.
/me wishes he wasn't exaggerating.
