I always thought that was interesting (especially when you consider that runner's high doesn't cause the annoying side effects that exogenous opioids do). It's true that some people don't get runner's high -- I'm one of them. (It's not necessarily a sign of opioidergic dysfunction, though: one of my professors, who used to run marathons, doesn't get it either.)

Yeah, running in traffic

I picked up on that, but I wouldn't call it "childish," although it is perhaps overly simplistic. People get really emotional about this stuff, I wouldn't take it too seriously.

My understanding from her posts is that Nikki believes that her experience with heroin addicts is relevant to medical use of opioids -- IOW, that she _does_ know something personally about the topic at hand. I believe there are significant differences between the situations she is familiar with and the ones that are being discussed here.
