Remember this classic book: Have you been "Driven to Distraction" lately?

The name of this blog comes from this insightful book.  ADD people are curious, often constantly.   It might have been a very useful trait among certain groups, but gradually bureaucracies come to see the ADD hyperactivity as disrupting.

Go ahead, order an extra copy.   Look at the chapter where the discussion goes to "why is ADD so often found in the USA and not in Europe?"  Simple:  we who are "chronically curious" got on ships and didn't return.  We took our "different" genes and brain wiring with us.
