Originally developed as a nootropic to combat narcolepsy, fighter pilots who often flew 24-hour-plus missions began using Provigil / Modafinil to combat the physical fatigue and mental dullness that sets in after sleep deprivation. With the advent of the Internet and Indian pharmacies, Provigil / Modafinil began filtering down to high powered executives and then to anyone with an Internet connection.
For people who respond to Modafinil, it’s simply a wonder drug. “Magic pill” and “silver bullet” come to my mind when discussing Modafinil. (Disclaimer: This post is not medical advice. Always consult with a physician before using this or any other medication.)
What does Provigil / Modafinil feel like?
Do you ever feel like you need to make an effort to access part of your brain when retrieving information? When writing or performing other cognitive tasks, it feels like I retrieve information stored in various filing cabinets. My conscious mind seeks out one filing cabinet for a piece of information, grabs and holds that information, and then goes into another filing cabinet for an addition piece of information. Then my brain begins integrating all of the various “files.” It’s a cumbersome process.
On Modafinil, there’s no delay in retrieving information. Everything is just there – all at once. My brain feels like its a spider web where all of the neurons are talking to each other simultaneously. It’s an amazing feeling and if you’re running Modafinil with test, you will feel like a super hero or demigod.
Provigil / Modafinil for Intermittent Fasting.
Many people report getting headaches while using Modafinil. My question is always the same, “Did you drink water?”
When on Modafinil, your desire to eat or drink anything will go to zero. You will essentially “forget” to eat and drink water. The head aches that people report from Modafinil are almost caused by dehydration.
If you want to fast for 16-18 hours, then Modafinil is perfect. Don’t eat anything for 16 hours. Train on am empty stomach. Then eat for the next 6-8 hours.
Be sure to drink a lot of water. I recommend a half gallon or more per 8 hours.
Provigil / Modafinil for Better Workouts.
Strength is ultimately a product of neurological functions. Modafinil improves neuromuscular function. I have the best training sessions of my life on Modafinil.
100 mg of Modafinil taken one to two hours before a training session will lead to awesome workouts. I don’t use any other stimulants (no pre-workout aids like Jack3d) other than maybe a half-caff cups of coffee.
How much Provigil / Modafinil did I take?
I’ve never taken more than 100 mgs – one-half of a tablet. Many guys take 200 mgs.
Some split their 200 mg cap in half and take 100 mg in the morning and 100 mg in the evening.
I have never seen the need to take a full tablet. A single 100 mg dose in the morning keeps me humming along quite nicely. At the end of the productive day, my brain feels tired and ready for rest.
Did I “cycle” Provigil / Modafinil?
Yes, Modafinil become less potent the more frequently it’s used. I only use Modafinil a few times per month. Heavy users of Modafinil report using a cycle of 2 weeks on/2 weeks off.
As with any other drug, Modafinil’s effects will vary based on an individual’s physiology. The “right” way or “wrong” way depends entirely on the person.
Where can I purchase Provigil / Modafinil?
Modafinil is available with a doctor’s prescription. It’s often prescribed to people who work swing shifts at work and thus develop erratic sleeping patterns.
What are Provigil’s / Modafinil’s side effects?
The side effects are typical and generally mild and vary by person. Modafinil’s side effects include nervousness, nausea, and irritability. There is one serious side effect that is purportedly extremely rare – a gnarly full body rash. (In one study, 0 out of 4,264 patients got the rash, so the rash does not seem like a major or even minor concern.)
Although tens of thousands of people have used Modafinil and lived to tell about it and the Modafinil skin rash seems extremely rare and unlikely, you should do your oak homework and assess the risks.
Modafinil: What’s the bottom line?
Not everyone responds well to Modafinil. Some take it and feel amazing and others take it and feel nothing. (although some people who feel nothing may have purchased counterfeit product.) Modafinil boosts fat loss, improves workout, and even makes sex more pleasurable. Modafinil makes pretty much everything better. Do your homework, though, and research the side effects and always consult with a doctor.
Is “Kung Flu” the latest Media Hoax?
Several White House reporters confronted Trump regarding his decision to call the coronavirus (or COVID-19) the China Virus. One reporter asked him about a White House administration official who is alleged to have called the coronavirus Kung Flu.
When the reporter was asked the name of the official, the reporter said she didn’t know.
The original claim regarding Kung Flu comes from CBS reporter Weijia Jiang. On March 17th, she Tweeted:
This morning a White House official referred to #Coronavirus as the “Kung-Flu” to my face. Makes me wonder what they’re calling it behind my back.
Ms. Jiang has not identified the official.
— Weijia Jiang (@weijia) March 17, 2020
One reason could be because this official does not even exist.
Under American defamation law, you can lie all you like.
You can’t lie about a person by name.
If no White House official called the coronavirus Kung Flu, or if there is some important context missing, then Jiang could be sued.
You can watch the Kung Flu exchange in this video here:

The Stafford Act Text Message Announcing an Emergency Quarantine is a Hoax
By now you or someone you know has received a hoax text announcing martial law. With some minor variations, the texts all read the same:
- In 48 to 72 hours the president will evoke what is called the Stafford act. Just got off the phone with some of my military friends in DC who just got out of a two hour briefing. The president will order a two week mandatory quarantine for the nation. Stock up on whatever you guys need to make sure you have a two week supply of everything. Please forward.
The National Security Council issued a rare public statement warning the public that the Stafford act text was a hoax.
— NSC (@WHNSC) March 16, 2020
How can you tell the Stafford Act Text is a Hoax?
Even if you refuse to accept the NSC’s word on the matter, the text message has some telltale signs of a hoax.
First, the text promises secret insider knowledge. “Just got off the phone with some of my military friends in DC who just got out of a two hour briefing.” This is a vague enough proclamation that it sounds plausible.
Second, no specifics of these friends are given. Who are these friends? Why did they call this specific person?
Third, the hoaxers ask you to spread the message. Why would anyone acting in good faith want to incite a panic?
If an emergency quarantine were able to be declared, the plan would be Top Secret. No one’s friends would just get out of a briefing and start alerting people. THEY WOULD GO TO PRISON FOR LEAKING CLASSIFIED INFORMATION.
If such an emergency plan were in the works and higher command wanted the story to get out, they’d leak it to a credible outlet. Not share chain-letter style text messages.
There’s also tradecraft involved in sharing classified information.
None of the telltale signs (and no I won’t share how to leak classified secrets here) were present in that alert.
UPDATE: Other outlets are now reporting that the Stafford Act text is a foreign disinformation campaign:
The Trump administration is alleging that a foreign disinformation campaign is underway aimed at spreading fear in the country amid the coronavirus pandemic, three U.S. officials said Monday. On Sunday, federal officials began confronting what they said was a deliberate effort by a foreign entity to sow fears of a nationwide quarantine amid the virus outbreak.
Agencies took coordinated action Sunday evening to deny that any such plans were put in place, as they tried to calm a nation already on edge by disruptions to daily life caused by the virus.
How Trump Drafted Google into the War Against Coronavirus
Elvis Presley served in the Army after he was drafted, and in American history it was common for celebrities to serve their country during times of national crisis. Noblesse oblige, or the duty the noble and rich owed to society, arouse perhaps out of morality or maybe simple self-preservation. If you’re getting while the getting is good, giving something back goes a long way to avoid class resentment.
Those thoughts were perhaps on Trump’s mind (or more likely his instinct) when he announced that Google was taking massive action to help America fight the coronavirus.
Google at first pushed back at the suggestion that it, a nearly trillion dollar mega-corporation, actually doing something to help the users it profits from.
Why should Google help save lives? Why should Google do anything other than operate as an amoral, blood-sucking corporation that violates user privacy and exploits children?
The media bros were quick to rush to save Google. Poor Google! They were being bullied by the ORANGE MAN BAD.
Google’s media errand boys like Jake Tapper and others were quick to publish stories attacking Trump for suggesting that Google actually do something.
Some like your humble correspondent Mike Cernovich saw right away was Trump was doing.
Trump just drafted Google to help save America from coronavirus https://t.co/a4Xj6Nq5At

Trump was drafting Google into the war against coronavirus.
Google, whatever its motivations, answered the draft.
“We are fully aligned and continue to work with the US Government to contain the spread of COVID-19, inform citizens, and protect the health of our communities. (1/6) https://t.co/eI1uXra6AB

Public pressure must intensify.
The corporations make billions of dollars a day by spying on users.
The least they can do is use that data to find out where coronavirus hot spots are, share that information with the CDC, and get information shared with the sick.
I told you they had the goods
Trump knew what he was doing
Google got that big data and they are going to help fight coronavirus 🇺🇸 https://t.co/KXrNKp9vFN
— Jack Posobiec (@JackPosobiec) March 15, 2020
Google tracks all searches locally.
The could find coronavirus hot spots by triangulating searches related to symptoms of coronavirus + location.
Literally this is easy for Google, it’s what they do to sell you commercial products.
Google hates you. https://t.co/88kFuHZbBj

You dumb Google boot lickers.
They already stole our data. They have it all.
At least now they can use it to save lives rather than only monetize it.
Trump’s “lie” about Google was 💯 the right move here.
Let’s put these companies to work FOR AMERICA for a change.
