For modafinil in particular:

Taking it doesn't actually make one smarter, despite the popular belief that it does. Modafinil helps with two things. First, it improves mental stamina, allowing one to focus on mentally demanding work for longer periods of time. Second, it promotes wakefulness.

I almost forgot -- modafinil does a third thing as well. It makes one's urine have a unique, but thankfully not too unpleasant, odor. :D

As below, so above.

That's why I sent it to Detritus in the first place... it's a lame thread. A complete mess, too. Here is a perfectly good thread about modafinil that I have no objection to:

See the difference?

Ummm. Sometimes serendipity spins straw into golden thread.

True, this thread lacks scientific merit. But, we might not want to corrupt a really nifty thread with social commentary, or degenerate music.

Manufacture better people, not better drugs.

Sorry guys. The Devil made me do it.
