News on ADHD

[ #28908 ]

This just in from the New York Times:

Essentially, A.D.H.D. is a problem dealing with the menial work of daily life, the tedium involved in many school situations and 9-to-5 jobs.

So, the problem isn't the 5-15% of the population that can't focus without their daily recommended dose of Focusin, but the 5-15% of the population that has the ominous sounding, complementary problem, attention surplus disorder. Those nimrods (or do I mean "we nimrods"?) are quite happy working in a knowledge based economy that requires deep focus for prolonged periods of time. Everyone else is just fidgety because they haven't found those few things they like to focus on (until they are medicated to make them differently abnormal).
