I do NOT have ADD!

(stolen from here)

My fondness for opening multiple tabs in my Firefox browser has NOTHING to do with ADD (attention deficit disorder), thank you very much. Nor my tendency to be working on 4-5 items simultaneously. It's not because of my ferret-like attention span that .... oohh! Sparklies!

... made me jump from subject to subject.

It's just that I have too much brain.


That's right. The little grey cells (to quote Msr. Hercule Poirot) of my left superior parietal cortex (the part of the brain that is roughly three finger span behind my left eye) are just too plentiful.

Trust me. Scientists said so.

However, this does not mean that I am any cleverer (hah!). In fact, it actually means that "a greater volume of grey matter may indicate a less mature brain, perhaps reflecting a mild developmental malfunction".


How can this be fixed?

Apparently, the team who wrote the paper is working on stimulating the mega-brain area by "placing electrodes on the head to deliver an unnoticeable electrical current to the immediate area".

Unnoticeable electrical current, yeah right. Now pull the other leg.

Time for your electroconvulsive therapy, m'dear.

Or maybe women are just master of multitasking... Good nite, snuze.

Multi-tasking is one thing, Naz. Compulsive hopping of one thing after another is a different issue altogether.


Have a great weekend, sugar!

Pidah: Aku yang melompat konklusi kepada ADHD dalam terlebih otak ni. Ia lebih kepada orang yang senang distracted; tak jauh dari diagnosis ADHD, bukan?

Kira konklusi kau tu perlu lebih bukti untuk diterima.

Dottie: Let us all celebrate our immature brains together!!!
