Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
From Uncyclopedia, the content-free encyclopedia
ADHD and ADD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and Attention Deficit Disorder respectively) are two formerly popular propaganda terms used by the parents of stupid children, crappy teachers, and
white collar drug dealers doctors.
Top scientists and researchers at the Church of Scientology have proven through lawsuits that ADHD is not really a disease and that Ritalin is really just a form of mind control. Before this, ADHD and ADD were Pfizer's largest source of income in the 90's and early 2000's. It has since fallen out of favor to Asspie Syndrome and lysdexia, which accounts for 70% of Pfizer's profit and 90% of Wikipedia's userbase.
edit Symptoms & causes
Because ADHD is merely just the medical term for stupid, ADHD has existed since time immemorial. Even pre-history cave paintings in Croatia suggest that cavemen with ADHD existed, but did not live long as they would often daydream instead of hunt and would become fatally distracted while being chased by rabid hyenas. Only with the growth of human civilization and the invention of television could ADHD afflicted persons live beyond the age of 16. Young people with ADHD usually have a phobia of water and try to avoid bathing. Oh look a squirell
The symptoms of ADHD are very similar to those of the closely related Asparagus Syndrome and lysdexia. They include:
- Inability to get jokes unless they are Family Guy quality (because of inattentiveness)
- Constantly telling everyone about ADHD.
- Forgetting that one has ADHD.
- Claiming that Thomas Edison, Beethoven, or Einstein had the same disease, and thus that they are part of a genius master race.
- Being easily upset when people call their disease a disease.
- Being upset when they don't.
- Yelling random things at a wall for three hours
- Staring at a wall for 5 hours
The Mayo Clinic says that parents neglecting their children, combined with a steady diet of Pokemon, increases a child's risk of contracting ADHD by as much as 50%. The Church of Scientology believes mental maladies like "ADHD" are the result of a low thetan count, and had this confirmed by the Supreme Court of the United States. The justices unanimously ruled that pharmaceutical companies and doctors were indiscriminately providing children drugs which did not address their thetan count. As a result, an undisclosed (though large) amount of money made by scrambling the brains of children was awarded to the Church of Scientology.
According to drug companies, the best way to "cure" this "disorder" is to pump sufferers full of drugs, especially if patients are children. Drugs used for treating ADHD/ADD include:
- Ritalin: An attempt at a chemical hybrid of cocaine and amphetamine. It doesn't sting, doesn't makes the throat numb, and isn't much fun because it's so bland.
- Amphetamines (Adderall, Dexedrine): Helps restore alertness and is as safe as coffee; equal to about 2 cups of coffee. Truckers and fighter pilots swear by it, but you will get your ass kicked if you try to sell it to the local biker gang as speed.
- Cylert/Pemoline: What the doctor prescribes if he is unwilling to do the DEA paperwork that comes with prescribing something else.
- Vyvanse: The very newest ADHD drug approved by the FDA. It's simply amphetamine chemically bonded to lysine, delaying its the amphetamine's release time. Lysine was chosen because according to the movie Jurassic Park, genetically modified dinosaurs love it.
- Caffeine: Available in drink or pill form, this is usually the drug of last resort, as it is highly addictive. Most ADHD Adults swear by this drug, and find it delicious. Good thing too, because they will be on it most of the rest of their life.
- Straterra - the safest alternative for ADHD medication. Tastes like crap but seems to just trance you out for a while before you get "focused" and normal like everyone else. Makes you very sleepy. Recommended to take with hot chocolate for better effect.
They're preferred as they are a less expensive, though a less effective, method than parenting. Some say Ritalin and Valium are not actually medicine and should only be used recreationally. A 2011 University of South Dakota concluded that none of these methods work all that well, simply because there is no cure for stupid.
The drugs can have very severe side-effects, causing ADHDers to develop a fetish for bringing up the fact that they are on drugs, just like a movie star, and telling dramatic stories about their drug adventures. Typical ADHD conversational phrases are: "Wait, I need to drop some Ritalin," "I think the Ritalin's kicking in," and "Last night I was on so much Ritalin that I had 84 seizures and my heart stopped beating for nearly 10 minutes. It was awesome!" It impresses no one as only losers and old people take prescription drugs.
edit On the internet
People with ADHD are particularly toxic on the internet. Many claim mad skills in philosophy, number theory, computer science, mathematical logic, abstract calculus, pharmaceutical chemistry, literary theory, theoretical physics, structural linguistics, criminal law, cultural anthropology, metaphysics, alien anatomy, 1337 theory, and pretty much anything else you can easily lie about on the internet by using Uncyclopedia. Tragically, some of them are deluded enough to believe their own fantasies, because their mothers, teachers and other known liars insist that having the attention-span of a goldfish somehow makes them more intelligent than "normal" human beings.
edit Sex with ADHD sufferers
There is a good chance that you won't be able to keep an ADHD sufferer interested long enough to get past 2nd base. But don't despair, for this is probably as far as you can ever hope to get anyway. If they reject your first offer, you can just ask them again five minutes later and may get a different response. If that doesn't work, rape is always an option, as halfway through the rape they may forget that they never gave you consent in the first place On the other hand, they might just as easily forget that they had consented, assuming that anyone would ever engage in consensual sex with the likes of you.
