Wade_Wilson: Like most drugs, do you eventually build up a resistance to them? And does that mean you need more powerful ones to get the same effect?
Moonfisher: You mean many of them are just little kids with lots of energy that need to run around and burn that energy off instead of being confined to desks or set in front of a TV all day? Like many of us have been saying for years?
verteiron: Nah, reading something uninteresting with ADD is more like trying to have a conversation with someone across a crowded room while everyone else is trying to talk to you.Exercise HEY may be HEY ARE YOU EVEN LISTENING TO ME? What? I SAID THERE'S A DUDE MOWING THE LAWN. Exercise may be HEY CHECK IT OUT, THE A/C CAME ON! So? IT'S ON, MAN! *sigh* Shut up already! Exercise may MAN THAT A/C REALLY RATTLES AROUND A LOT, HUH? good for DUDE WAS THAT THUNDER? may be good NAH, JUST A TRUCK. HEY, YOU SHOULD CHECK THE RADAR, MAYBE THERE'S A STORM COMING ANYWAY! WE LIKE STORMS, RIGHT? *sigh*In fact, doing pretty much anything is like that, unless the hyper-focus kicks in... something over which there is no control.
Moonlightfox: 30 odd years since the ritalin craze hit, and now "child behavioral scientists" have discovered that.. get this... if a kid has a lot of energy... and, stay with me here, instead of drugging him up and punishing him for having lots of energy, you let him simply EXPEND it, via this thing called BEING A CHILD, he will be more balanced and happy than a drugged-up emasculated special ed zombie?NO farkING shiat.

I can look at an item and explode it down to its components in my mind and mentally see how it functions without knowing anything about it prior. I can hear a song and play it back on the piano, or if I'm handed an instrument I've never played before I can figure it out in five minutes. My drugs help me to control my barrage of thoughts and allow me to focus all my energy at once like a goddamn laser beam. I get deep into computer coding, writing programs that operate machinery to carve metal faster and more efficiently than any human hand.but you seem to know everything's fake and an excuse for lazy parents so I won't preach to you, professor.
