All right, form what I understand of lembas...it restored ones spirit. It didn't add anything to you, it just made you draw upon you inner strength. This accounts for both the increase of physical stamina and the apparent increase in wits. The orc-draught allows one to draw upon your physical reserves of strength but dulls ones spirit. I think Merry and Pippin started acting crafty because they were forced into a situation that required craftiness and maturity, not because they were "drugged." The frolicsome Merry and Pippin couldn't have survived the Orc captivity. They needed to be more responsible.

Jeeez! I have GOT to stop ranting! [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]
