Whoops! Maybe you were looking for Attention Deficit Disorder?
The judicial system proved that ADHD doesn't exist. And that OJ Simpson was innocent.

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 '90s and early 2000s. It has since fallen out of favor to Twitchy-Tweak syndrome and lysdexia, which accounts for 70% of Pfizer's profit and 90% of Uncyclopedia and Encyclopedia Dramatica's userbases.

Diagnosis[edit | edit source]

If you call yourself "self-diagnosed" after spending a couple of minutes on Google, that's stupid enough to be a sign that you do have it. If you used Bing, or any other search engine, it's probably something worse, ya downie.

Symptoms & causes[edit | edit source]

Proof that cavemen had ADHD. Note the doodling around the writing like many ADHD sufferers would do.

Because ADHD is merely just the medical term for inattentive hyper coked-up fuck, 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.[1] 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.

The symptoms of ADHD are very similar to those of Tourette's Syndrome and lysdexia. They include:

  • Inability to get jokes unless they are Family Guy quality (because of inattentiveness).
  • Forgetting that one has ADHD.
  • Claiming that Thomas Edison, Beethoven, and Benjamin Franklin 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 for three hours
  • Staring at a wall for three seconds.
  • Rolling on the floor and howling like a spider-monkey.
  • Yelling "oompa foompa" and other nonsense phrases.

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.

Treatment[edit | edit source]

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:

The cure for ADHD, made to look like candy so children would more readily take them.
  • 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 ADHD sufferers 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.

Other methods of treatment:

  • Exorcism - Might confuse the little bastards and convince them to stop acting so crazy-ass stupid. In the case of actual demonic possession, wouldn't hurt.
  • Slapping around - "Shut the fuck up, sit down and finish your dinner"
  • Moving away - Moving away before they come home from school. Imagine their faces. LOL that, bitches!

Usage in schools[edit | edit source]

I'm bored with this article. Time for me to jump on ncfnxb

Underpaid teachers have been "diagnosing" ADHD since the 1980's as a new method to "shut the retarded kids up" so they can actually have some peace while handling their classes. Commons ways of diagnosis include calling or emailing parents and demanding a meeting. From there the underpaid teachers will discuss with the parents of how "little shit" is having trouble concentrating on their work and distracting other students and will suggest that their child may have ADHD, hoping that the parents will see a psychologist who will throw them on some sweet, sweet Ritalin or other assorted Big Pharma drugs to shut them the hell up.

In a survey of 1,200 teachers from Wisconsin, 83% said they have attempted to have a kid diagnosed because they would annoy them with 'questions about their maths homework' whilst 96% said that Ritalin has helped the idiots to calm down and actually focus on their work without telling the teacher about their holiday to Hawaii. As of such, 100% of teachers recommended medication to all children who annoyed them.

The findings of the survey were labelled as 'concerning' from the Socially United Wisconsin Parents Association, Pfizer also released a statement stating that 'This proves that ADHD is a rampant problem throughout the public education system, especially in Wisconsin. Diagnosing your child is the best thing you can do for your children and the education system as a whole'

Pfizer also recommended with their medication that a reasonable dosage of purchasing Pfizer stocks should be included with an ADHD treatment plan, in order to ensure children are able to receive the support they need.

Sufferers[edit | edit source]

On the internet[edit | edit source]

A map of the Internet, or to an ADHD sufferer, pretty lights.

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.

Sex with ADHD sufferers[edit | edit source]

There is a good chance that you won't be able to keep an ADHD patient 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[2] 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.
