That is to say that this list contains words that this list contains words that:
- Usually aren't instantly guess-able (like star, apple, or Nike).
- Can be played with a group of acquaintances (I play with a group of interns at work to blow off time)
- It contains some proper nouns which I believe to be well-known enough (like Simpsons or Spiderman).
Created this list by modifying an existing difficult word list we found online and adding a bunch of new words. If you see a stupid difficult word, it was probably a word from the existing difficult word list that I forgot to remove. (amicable and reimbursement were the type of bs I removed lol).

Bitmain has announced an ASIC miner for Sia. This has made a lot of people uneasy, especially those who preordered Obelisk units. So I'll first address the Obelisk units in isolation. Though we don't have the full chips back yet, the chips are in production and we have our final simulations. We can confidently state that the bitmain unit is far less energy efficient, costs more money, and is an objectively worse miner than the SC1. So people who ordered Obelisk units will still be receiving hardware of substantial value. submitted by
As a developer, Bitmain moving into the Sia space makes me uneasy. Bitmain has historically been extremely greedy, and very willing to sacrifice the well being of the community, of their customers, and of the ecosystem if it means they can make a couple of extra dollars. The biggest way this has manifested for altcoins is that they will over-sell hardware. When a ton of miners suddenly join the network, the difficulty adjusts. If too many miners join the network, nobody is able to make any money, and everyone eats a loss on their hardware purchase.
Bitmain has no qualms about overselling their units to buyers. They take massive margins on their hardware (>50%) and make more money than the total block reward at the expense of their customers. They over-saturate the mining market in a way that hurts their buyers. I think we will see this with Sia. Bitmain will sell more units than the Sia ecosystem can sustain, and many people end up with large losses. Bitmain will not end up with losses, because they were paid up-front with non-refundable money.
Bitmain also has a history of doing things like mining empty blocks, and like refusing to activate soft-forks that are beneficial to the network. They were openly hostile to the Bitcoin-core developers, and actively blocked the activation of a very valuable network feature (Segwit).
We, the dev team, are not happy that Bitmain has made an ASIC for Sia. We are not happy that many Sia supporters are at risk of losing money by buying these miners (from over-saturation), and we are not happy that Bitmain may choose to interfere with our network. This is not a commentary on general ASIC companies, this is a commentary on Bitmain specifically.
We did add an extra feature to the SC1 unit that would allow us to invalidate the Bitmain hardware without invalidating the SC1. The community would need to choose to adopt a soft-fork (it's not something we could just magically activate, we have to change the hashing algorithm slightly), and then we could get rid of this cycle of Bitmain hardware. Of course, they could just create another round of hardware (likely taking ~3 months). And, it would hurt Bitmain customers more than it would hurt Bitmain. Bitmain has already sold around $20 million of non-refundable hardware. They have made their profit, and a soft-fork wouldn't change that.
As much as I would like to punch Bitmain in the nose, I don't think a soft-fork achieves what we want. If the hardware is used to harm the Sia network, either by doing double spends, rejecting soft forks, mining empty blocks, we will invalidate it without hesitation. But for the time being, I think the best thing to do is to advise people not to buy the Bitmain hardware (to protect yourself from the oversaturation that Bitmain tries to create), and then to watch and wait, and respond more if it appears that the network is under attack. Overall though, I do not think Sia is in trouble.
I am looking forward to the thoughts from the community.
Long story short, my dad suffered a major stroke 2 years ago which left him bedridden in a nursing home and I rage quit my job 1 year ago. My father lost all his asset gambling in his younger days so he had no asset to his name and I have been living with his two sisters (unmarried, my aunts). Normally I should not have to worried about this, but it turns out my Dad only had $2 in his bank account after gambling the CPF he withdrew at our world class casino. He didn't have much insurance because he cancelled them to save on premiums. For what he had, Aviva denied his claim because they claim he false declared his health status on application (many years ago) and will thus "eat" his premium and terminate the policy. The only thing I managed to claim successfully was the DPS and Eldershield thanks to NTUC, but it was after a lengthy one year process to obtain all the "funny" documents they needed. Apparently taking care of a mentally incapacitated person is harder than taking care of a dead person, thanks to red tapes everywhere. You don't just walk and say, I am the son and expect everything to fall into place. There is no one unified system at all. submitted by
Nonetheless, there was a whole lot of drama in the first year of his stroke due to the hospital, social workers and incapable relatives that requires me to attend to every single thing like I own the company, and I can take time off anytime I want to be a good son like on television. Eventually I was so burn out that everything finally forced me to rage quit my job after a falling out with management. Stuck in a contract was horrible enough but they were so eager to take advantage of the fact that I needed the job and money, instead of negotiating properly. I also dropped out of private uni because I needed cash flow to pay for all of my father's bills and that Kaplan was insensitive to my predicament by not allowing partial refund of my paid fees. Instead asking me to pay the full amount again when I am ready to re-module. I didn't take that well, so I did not extend the deferment. Let's not say I did not try to get my degree, ok? My dad rather gamble than fund my studies and when I finally saved enough for further studies, I need to pay for his medical needs. I was screwed over hard, and ultimately no money means no paper degree no matter how talented I may be. I even tried to negotiate with the company to send me for training on company time, but its always no training budget for contract staffs. And then the usual, if you go training on company time, then what we hire you for? During my years in the company, never once was I send for training. When there is a new project, they just hire someone to implement it instead of giving me the opportunity. And when its implemented, I get a few power point slides and magically I'm qualified to support the new system. It really is vomit blood.
Although I was jobless for a year, the nice thing was that I was able to get everything settled personally like the good son I should be. Or at least, I thought it should be. But it turns out that putting him in a nursing home does not entirely resolve me of my problem. He has so many medical appointments that requires me to follow up, and if I don't attend, there are funny cases where medication is missing or not collected from the hospital. Or the appointment rescheduled to another time so I can attend. I don't really know whose fault this is since the excuse I keep hearing is that "Sorry, I don't speak English so I cannot understand", so I need to be the one to take care of everything, because once again... I am the son. This keeps taking up my time and I cannot rid myself of them, so this becomes a problem when I want to find a new job. My education level is only up to Diploma and that limits my options. The roles I quality for are pretty much IT Helpdesk / Technicians which don't really have a work life balance option due to over-outsourcing. Pay wise, they are only around $2.6k and it is pretty much a dead end career, so there is no progression path. Having to pay for my father's needs and eventually his 2 sisters as they get older, with this salary really puts me at a lost.
I have a D7 in O'lv math and that is what really screw me over big time but unless I am really that bad at math, I absolutely do not see how I can start a family (If I even have that option) and take care of everyone with a low salary. The reason I need to take care of his 2 sisters is that they took care of me when my father didn't and they took out their savings to pay off my father's gambling debts, which he didn't even brother returning to them when he withdrew his CPF. Even now, when I am not working, for some strange reasons the government's means testing suggest that I can afford to pay $1200++ a month for my father's nursing home and this is excluding all his other medicines and specialist appointments. He has over 20+ medications and among them are anti depressive pills which I don't even have the luxury of taking. As much as I can, I have tried to make ends mean but at some point in time... there is only so much one can do. Social workers I spoke to are like, well live for yourself, not for others. Find a girlfriend! But i look at my situation and I don't exactly see how I even have the luxury to live for myself. If anything, I don't know of any girl in Singapore that would even consider my position as potential boyfriend material. The truth is, I have been fighting by myself for the last 30 years without anyone to seek advise from. Friends? Let's just say, its different from television. Everyone has their own problem and their broken fingernail is more important. The best you can get out of anyone is pretty much, a listening ear on whatsapp and some "You can do it! You should come to church and donate for Jesus's blessing."
I don't blame anyone though and this really issn't a rant post. I appreciate everyone that has been in my life, whether good or bad (everything is a learning experience) but ultimately, there is only so much you can beat out of a dead horse. After considering all possible options, I truly believe that ending my life and letting the government take care of my family's needs might be the best logical choice. Alternatively, I can rob the bank and get myself caught intentionally so I can get some free re-skilling opportunities in jail. Maybe when I come out, I can become some story teller with a very dramatic bestseller book to fund my retirement. To be honest, I don't know what I am expecting from this post, but this is in a way my attempt at screaming for help. Whether I deserve help or how much help I truly deserve, I don't know. Counselors always tell stories where family of 4 struggle with a household income of $2k, and they live a very happy, satisfied life so I will be just fine if I try. But how true is this story really? The bright side is that maybe the hubby can have sex with his wife to destress, but I can't fuck anyone in my family to destress. Maybe the 2 kids will grow up and help to support the family, but my situation aren't even that. I honestly feel that, I have reached the end of the crossroad and this is the end of my bloodline. I don't do drugs, I don't drink, I don't smoke, I don't go pub/club, I haven never even gone on overseas vacation, never took a plane before, I save whatever I can. I don't even go to cinemas. I'm not even fat, I eat a very cheap diet that puts me a little underweight but where did this effort ultimately took me? A boring person with an unattractive lifestyle that no Singaporean girls will want to date, and a aging family to take care of. Honestly, where is my future? I don't see any. To be honest, I may not have the budget to spurge on dates even if a girl want me. Singapore is just very plain straight forward. "Bo money ah? Die lor. I only got one life, you want? Come take it la."
Its a pretty long post, much longer than I expected and I thank you if you have read everything. In a way, I felt better after getting this out. If you are responding though, I have a question. If you were in my position, what would you have done? Would suicide really not be the most educated option?
PS: Pls don't suggest investing in cryptocurrencies. I deleted my bitcoin and doge wallet in 2010.
Big Edit: So there are alot of comments way more than I expected and I appreciate all support. I'm not really that responsible a person like some of you think. It is just that, I try to be a good samaritan and so I pick up the slack here and there, and somehow eventually things became so dependent on me that whose else is going to do it, if not me? I'm forced into where I am today not because I want to. I have actually very much considered disavowing my father and then migrating and abandoning everyone for the greater good. If Singapore was bigger, I would most certainly not hesitate to move to another city. Its just that my whole plan was pretty much, once I settled everything. I would kill myself so in a way that was the master plan. I rage quit my job because I knew I didn't need to put up with shit anymore if I am going to die soon. But things wouldn't settle, and it dragged so long to the point where one day I suddenly feel so lonely that I say, maybe I need to do something, walk out of this darkness and attempt to go back to society. But then I have no real plan for it, or maybe I have but I dunno if its a good plan, a bad plan or another disastrous mistake just waiting to happen.
There's alot of suggestions in here and I thank you very much. Its true that if I don't suicide, there can be many options out and some of these options involves ignoring the future ahead and then praying that things will work out eventually. That once I get a job, everything will be better. But the real problem here is, and what I can't solve in my head is which I will elaborate further is that instead of saving money every month, all the money goes into my Dad's nursing home and medical bills. Now my aunts don't make much, so its hard for them to chip in much when they also have their own medical issues. So the bulk falls on me but still we get by. Just that nobody saves any money at the end of each month, and pray that the existing savings don't get touched. Why? Because my aunt will need those money themselves when they grow older and retire. So this puts things in a very weird cycle, especially given how I have achieved nothing in life thus far. So I pay, we pay until my Dad dies and he dies a happy man, well cared for and everyone think I am such a good son. Then my aunts turn come and oh because I was so capable of handling things before, people's expectation would be that "oh, i'm sure he can do it again". So yup, let's do it again. Then eventually everyone dies, leaving me alone without any savings, career or well... let's not say family. I don't want to make this into a sobbing story of "I cannot find a girlfriend because I have no money!!". So well, what do I do? I assume I would be in my late 60s or early 70s by then and I don't expect my health to be 100% perfect so... I die to join everyone in the afterlife.
I feel very sad when I think it that way, but I need not be that sad because things haven't played out yet. That's what many are telling me. But I dunno how to ignore something that will eventually happen anyway. Thus, it is just a simple matter of whether I die now in my 30s or i die later in my 70s. Either way, I die as a failure. But its not "right" to tell say "Yes Gram, pls go and kill yourself. I fully support your decision." so they say, don't worry. Things will work out. But how will things work out? I ask them, they dunno. I ask myself, I dunno. So... what then? It seems like just delaying the inevitable to me.
If I disavow everyone, np. I just restart my life plain and simple, reach 35 buy my own house and throw a house warming party, impregnate my neighbour's daughter by mistake and I start my own family chapter. And I die in my 70s as a successful husband, good father and someone to be "proud" of. But do I need to start my own family? Not really. Do I need a girlfriend? Not really. Do I need sex? Not really. They are all luxury, not a necessity. So I choose to sacrifice myself, but then I feel suicidal and ya the cycle begins again. I'm not a dumb person and by no means have I not considered the possibilities. But what I have considered may not be big enough, since there are options that I am unaware of or misunderstood and that it aren't as bad as I painted it. Ok, I am open to explore it but if the advise is just "Get a job Gram, that's your first step and then start saving!". That is a pointless advice imo, no matter how reasonable it is because it just puts me back to square one. I am not trying to sound unappreciative btw, I am just frustrated at being looked upon like an idiot.
Edit 2: Based on the comments, I realized that from my friends' perspective, I am the dead weight so that might be why they aren't "helping", just act like things will resolve by itself. Well, I can afford to disavow these friends. Thanks for helping me to realize this!
Edit 3: Going through all the suggestions and private messages, I am suddenly feeling very overwhelmed by what needs to be done and what I should be doing. My head hurts really bad and I am starting to regret asking for help when I am not ready to be helped. It is all reminding me what I should have or should not done for a better life, and why I wanted to commit suicide in the first place. Now I remember why I concluded it was easier to simply restart a new life and make sure I do it correctly the next time. Sorry guys, I don't think I can do it anymore. I think things just got worse after asking for help.

- 12+ hours of intense focus
- Increased overall productivity
- Enhanced cognitive functions
- Improved memory retention
- Inability to sleep or feel fatigue, i.e. great for all-nighters
- …And more!
Overall, Modafinil makes you feel like you can accomplish anything and everything you want – while you’re on it.
It’s not the “Limitless” pill, but it’s pretty darn close.
Originally, Modafinil was developed as a pharmaceutical drug under the name Provigil. Created in France during the late 1980s, the drug quickly rose to popularity as doctors began prescribing it for common ailments like (Source
- Sleep Apnea
- Shift Sleep Disorder
In the late 1990s, Provigil made its way to the United States. And before you knew it, Provigil was being used for off-the-label uses.
Grad students and CEOs in major cities like NYC and Boston quickly figured out that Modafinil gave them a competitive advantage over the competition.
These hustlers could pop 200 mg of Modafinil and focus for 12+ or pull an all-nighter without any issue.
The smart drug craze had officially begun, and Modafinil was at the forefront of it!
Things haven’t slowed down since then. It didn’t take long for Modafinil to surpass Adderall as the world’s most popular study drug, either.
Now people are looking to get their hands on the smart drug from all around the world. There’s a reason you’re curious about how to buy Modafinil in Australia.
Because Modafinil just works, mate.
Is Modafinil Legal in Australia?
Now, I’m no lawyer. Nor am I a legal scholar. So, this section about the legalities of Modafinil in Australia should not be construed as anything but hyperbole. This is NOT advice. Is Modafinil legal in Australia?
Yes and no. Honestly, it’s a grey area.
Here’s the simplest way to break things down:
If you have narcolepsy or severe sleep apnea, your Australian doctor can legally prescribe you brand name Modafinil – generally Modavigil, as Provigil in Australia isn’t that common.
With this prescription, you can then go to a pharmacy in Australia and legally purchase Modafinil over-the-counter in the country with that prescription.
For those of us unable to get a prescription for Provigil in Australia, buying from a pharmacy is technically illegal.
It’s also impossible.
Why? Because no Australian pharmacist is risking their career to sell you pharmaceutical-grade smart drugs under-the-counter. TL DR: If you want to buy Modafinil in Australia, you’ll need to get a prescription from a local doctor for a commonly prescribed ailment. Then go to the pharmacy. This is the laws regarding Modafinil in the country.
However, there’s a little bit more than meets the eye here.
The laws and legalities surrounding Modafinil in Australia and how to get your hands on it require a little due diligence. Which is why I need to discuss… P.S: I will be discussing the legalities of shipping Modafinil to Australia below…but you needn’t be worried there.
Drug Schedules in Australia
Australia drug scheduling laws come into play when talking Provigil in Australia.
In the country, pharmaceutical and street drugs are classified through the Therapeutic Goods Act, or TGA
. The drugs are classified in groups 1-10 based on how dangerous they and the potential for abuse.
According to the TGA, the world’s most popular smart drug is considered a schedule 4 medication. As such, there are some limitations when buying Modafinil in the country.
Here’s a brief breakdown of drug schedules in Australia:
- Schedule 1 – Purposely left blank by the government
- Schedule 2 – Generally safe pharmaceutical drugs, including: Paracetamol, Dextromethorphan, Non-sedating antihistamines, and similar substances
- Schedule 3 – Safe pharmaceutical drugs, but ones the Australian government prefers to track and manage, including: Codeine, Pseudoephedrine, Salbutamol, and the like
- Schedule 4 – Prescription medications that have potential for addiction, including Modafinil, Benzodiazepines, SSRIs, and more
- Schedule 5 – Potentially dangerous compounds for humans, including methanol and some heavy metals
- Schedule 6 – These are poisons according to the TGA, and include: Ammonia, Barium salts, and more
- Schedule 7 – Dangerous drugs and poisons that generally aren’t sold to the public without special considerations, like Thallium, Colecalciferol, and similar substances
- Schedule 8 – Controlled drugs that require a special license to distribute and are heavily monitored by the Australian government, including: Morphine, Oxycodone, and Amphetamine
- Schedule 9 – Prohibited drugs or street drugs that are not legally sold in the country, including cocaine, DMT, and marijuana
It should be clear by now, but if it’s not…
Drug scheduling in Australia is a complex matter.
For example, let’s look at Modafinil.
Modafinil is a schedule 4 drug
in Australia, as the government seems to think that Modafinil offers some potential for abuse and addiction.
While seemingly true in theory due to the active mechanisms in Modafinil, the AU government may be reaching when considering Modafinil as an addictive substance.
There have been very few Provigil addiction cases ever reported or recorded. For example, here’s one study talking about a rare case of Modafinil dependence
The smart drug simply isn’t addictive in a manner most individuals use the word.
You can take Modafinil multiple times a week without ever feeling a Modafinil “craving” or “withdraw” before or after.
Still, Modafinil is a schedule 4 drug in Australia…and that won’t be changing for sometime.
How to Get a Modafinil Prescription in Australia
Australia is a decidedly developed nation.
This shouldn’t come as any surprise.
As such, the sale and consumption of pharmaceutical drugs generally requires a prescription from a registered doctor in the country.
This is certainly the case in Australia.
To purchase Provigil in Australia from a pharmacy, you will need a prescription from a doctor. As previously discussed, there is absolutely no workaround here. Australian pharmacists cannot be negotiated with.
So, how do you get a Modafinil prescription in Australia? One that allows you to purchase Provigil or Modavigil from a pharmacy…
You head over to a doctor and beg for mercy.
Generally, Australian doctors only prescribe Modafinil for patients who have narcolepsy – which is not exactly a medical issue one can “fake” or lie about.
Narcolepsy is a condition where one falls asleep at all times of the day – often without warning. It can be potentially dangerous, especially when operating a motor vehicle.
If you have narcolepsy, just go to the doctor and get a Modafinil prescription. No need to read this guide. For the rest of us, we’re left with two options when getting a Modafinil prescription in Australia is of concern.
The first one involves going to a sleep specialist and complaining of excessive daytime sleepiness and drowsiness. You can blame the fatigue on sleep apnea or shift sleep disorder. The doctor should order a day-time sleep study.
Based upon these results, the doctor could then prescribe Modafinil due to excessive daytime sleepiness.
That’s the last 100% legal way of getting a Modafinil prescription in Australia.
Luckily…There are other ways to get your hands on Modafinil while living down under. Ways that certainly are NOT illegal.
The easiest? You can buy Modafinil online and have it shipped to Australia.
– Is this 100% legal? –
Again, I’m no lawyer.
But I’ve yet to hear about anyone having legitimate legal issues importing a Schedule 4 pharmaceutical drug for personal use – which I’ll be discussing furthermore below.
I’d surmise the worst that happens is your package gets seized by customs and you get a full refund from the online Modafinil pharmacy you purchased from.
Even this is rare!
See, the best Modafinil online vendors guarantee their shipments to Australia. This means you either get your Modafinil or you get a full refund or reshipment. Your choice.
Basically, you have no risk. If customs confiscates your package, you get your money back or the vendor sends you another order ASAP.
Which brings me to my next point…

Shipping Modafinil | Australia Edition
It’s easy to assume that shipping Modafinil to Australia would cause issues with customs throughout the country.
That doesn’t appear to be the case.
Modafinil may be a schedule 4 drug in Australia, but possession may not be considered completely illegal.
There’s a public list of controlled substances in the country published by The Office of Drug Control in Australia.
The list contains any and substances that are banned from importation into the country without permission. Modafinil is conveniently not on this list!
Aka shipping Modafinil to Australia for personal use is not technically illegal.
The TGA does state that prescription drugs purchases online require a copy of the prescription from the seller. If your Modafinil order is confiscated upon importing, the Modafinil can be held until a prescription is submitted.
If you don’t submit the prescription within a certain timeframe, the contents of the package will be destroyed.
But here’s the thing… This rarely, if ever, happens.
Schedule 4 pharmaceutical drugs like Modafinil generally make it past customs security without a single issue or problem.
It’s why the best Modafinil vendors offer guaranteed delivery to the country without even thinking about it.
Customs officials in Australia are more concerned with illicit drugs, like cocaine and heroin, than an individual trying to boost cognition through pharmaceutical drugs and nootropics.
As of writing, I’m unaware of a SINGLE instance of someone having legal trouble for importing Modafinil for personal use in Australia.
I’m no lawyer, but you needn’t worry about buying Modafinil and Armodafinil online in Australia.
Most Modafinil orders in Australia will arrive within 5-15 business days – depending on the vendor selected, product chosen, and location within the country.
Pretty quick if you ask me.
Generic Modafinil and Armodafinil in Australia
If you get a prescription from the doctor in Australia, you’ll be able to buy Modafinil from a pharmacy in the country.
Once you have a prescription, you can go to the pharmacy and get Modafinil under names like:
These are brand name Modafinil products sold in pharmacies in Australia.
For Australians looking to order Modafinil online, common generic Modafinil products include:
These generic forms of Modafinil all do a damn good job. In fact, generic Modafinil and Armodafinil compare well with brand name products.
There’s not much of a difference between Provigil and Modalert.
Plus, after testing all four of these generic products, I have a few recommendations for Australians and those living in the country.
Modalert is the stronger generic Modafinil brand in Australia. I highly recommend it. Modvigil is a cheap alternative for Australians looking for Modafinil.
When looking for Modafinil’s little cousin Armodafinil, I prefer Waklert. However, Artvigil is a little bit cheaper.
Overall, I stick with Modalert and Waklert for good reason. I’ve found them to be superior products and recommend them for anyone looking to buy Modafinil online in Australia.
Adrafinil in Australia, Prescription-Free Alternative
Now, some of you may be looking for a 100% legal alternative to Modafinil. While I’m confident you won’t have any issues getting your hands on Modafinil while living in Australia, many people want another option.
I get that, which is why I recommend Adrafinil, too.
Adrafinil is a 100% legal and over-the-counter smart drug. It’s a legit Modafinil alternative.
Why? Because the body essentially converts Adrafinil to the active ingredient in Modafinil after ingestion (Source
As such, it takes a little bit longer for Adrafinil to kick in than Modafinil. The smart drug also isn’t nearly as strong as Modafinil due to how it works.
Overall, Adrafinil is an ok option if you don’t want to use Modafinil. But Modafinil is the king of smart drugs for a reason – it’s the best thing out there.
If you’re curious about other nootropics in Australia and potential Modafinil alternatives, I’ve got a couple more ideas for you.
Just know that Modafinil is the ‘King’ and Armodafinil in Australia is the ‘Queen’ when talking nootropics.
Hell, Adrafinil is the ‘Prince’ to take that little analogy one step further.
There’s still some other nootropics in Australia that can be worthwhile alternatives. Here’s a few of my favorites:
- Mind Lab Pro: I tried this smart drug for the first time recently. Let’s just say I was more than IMPRESSED. You’ll find Modafinil-like or should I say “-lite” cognitive enhancement with Mind Lab Pro. It’s one of, it not my top, over-the-counter nootropic right now. And it’s ideal to “cycle” with Modafinil. Highly recommended.
- Noopept: As one of the most powerful over-the-counter nootropics in Australia, I’ve found Noopept to be a potent substance through testing. It’s no Modafinil, but you’ll find powerful cognitive benefits here. Powder form recommended.
- Sulbutiamine: For my final nootropic recommendation for Australians, we’ve got Sulbutiamine. This stuff works for around 5-7+ hours and offers solid cognitive enhancement. If you’re concerned Modafinil will be too strong, this is a good starting nootropic.
