|1.||the pill-cebo effect|
When you swallow an aspirin and immediately feel better even though you know it won't really kick in for another half hour.
*takes an aspirin* "Aaaahh."
"You know that's not gonna kick for like an hour, right?"
"Yeah, but just taking it makes me feel like I really did something about this headache, ya know?"
"Ahh, the pill-cebo effect."
