taurusowner: Throughout all of human history, the amount of people who were "smart" has been pretty small with the rest of us performing menial labor. For the last 100 years we've gotten to the point where we are actually capable of attempting to school entire populations. And I think we're seeing that it's not working. Just like not everyone actually belongs in college, not everyone has what it takes to really learn. For whatever reason, there's just a lot of people out there who are almost meant to be idiots, and the more we see this in practice, the more hoops we jump through to try to make all of the idiot square pegs to fit into the smart round holes. Not everyone is capable of being a doctor or lawyer. In the past, everyone else would just be a farmer or some other simple job. But now that we've automated most everything, we're discovering we have a lot more imbeciles than we know what to do with.

This is why I'm building a gigantic imbecile trebuchet to launch them into orbit.

He's probably exhausted from explaining that his name is NOT misspelled.

ParagonComplex: orbister: ParagonComplex: Piece of shiat inaccurate headline since a] and b] are the exact same things now.

Nope. ADD or ADHD-I is a subtype of ADHD, not a synonym for it.

No, they're the same thing. When was your 4000 series college leveled Learning and Behavoral Disorder psychology class? Mine was a couple semesters ago. ADHD is the new name for ADD.

But how do we know you were paying attention?

Every once in a while, Fark makes me re-think stuff. Sitting here, reading this mess and re-reading what I wrote...it just hit me how truly gawd-awful I feel about this. It's really affecting everything. My poor family...last night I actually started hollering that it's not my job to tell people whether or not the graham crackers need to be put in a ziplock bag and please stop making me think for youuuuu..."

It's helpful I work in the benefits office...I'm making an appt today with a psychologist I just found that actually happens to treat kids and adults.

Thanks, all. :)

"People who are getting A's and B's, I won't give it to them," he said.

How long until he starts prescribing them barbiturates so they can't unfairly use their advantage over his favored patients?

Cool, one step closer to Huxley's Soma (not Carisoprodol). The masses should be quite under control in a few years. Not sure why who'd want to control over millions of slobbering drones, but the option is there I guess.

tricycleracer: Zarquon's Flat Tire: This might work, what's the street value of Adderol?

$10 per 30mg pill, but those are "friend prices" (or so I'm told).

So let's assume $15 per to customers, and a daily dose being two pills. For a 30 day supply that's $1800 a month. Do that for a few years, use the money to pay for trade school *BAM* the doctored cured his poorness.

War with Iran will take care of the excess. Still too many? War with China. Still too many? Uh, Mars Colony volunteers.

Getting a B instead of a C in elementary school is certainly worth drugging your children.
