Take Tylenol to suppress the effects of surrealism

I just watched the first episode of 'Rabbits', David Lynch's horror-comedy sitcom, after which I looked it up on Wikipedia to read more about it, because it is really really odd, as I'm sure you can imagine.

This bit caught my attention:
"Rabbits was used as a stimulus in a psychological experiment on the effects of acetaminophen on existential crisis. The research, in a paper entitled "The Common Pain of Surrealism and Death" suggested that acetaminophen acted to suppress the effects of surrealism."

So then I looked up the study and found that it was true. Acetaminophen really was found to help to suppress existential crisis and the effects of surrealism. Crazy, but true.
