The Evil Dex Is Better Than a Swiss Watch

The Evil Dex is amazing stuff.¹ I swear, it has an atomic clock built in. I take it on Monday at about 8 am, and a whole series of side effects then starts to kick off on a very precise schedule. How precise? Well, the last side effect is a withdrawal crash, which happens at about 11 am on Thursday, give or take an hour.

Think about this. That’s 75 hours later, and it happens within an hour of the same time every week. For three consecutive days the dex churns through its side effects with an error rate of no more than 1 percent. That’s really impressive.

¹Dexamethasone, for those of you who haven’t been following along. I take it once a week to help control my multiple myeloma.

THANK YOU.

We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
