    Watching tv with the family. Ritalin comes over the tube. Kid asks ... Dad, were you raised on Ritalin or Padda-lin :lolz:


    I said Padda-lin ... they could mass medicate on the cheap and you didn't need a glass of water.

    Ritalin is the biggest ripoff. It does nothing.

    Man I had a paddle with my name on it in High School.
    If it was not one of the coaches it was the vice p that was swinging.
    As long as I did not have to see the Sr. Vice P it was ok but if you went to him - well lets say no one left without tears and fears from his office! LOL!!!

    Not true! It does work if it is needed but if it is not it is stupid. The doctors put me on that shit in junior high and I quit taking it and learned how to control my ADD not the other way around. Ritalin has it's place on extreme cases . But it should be used as an aid to get to the point of control not as a permanent solution.

    AI also got my ass beat on a regular basis. My mother said that all my life I laughed threw almost every padlin I got. My dad had a feed store and got creative, he had a show stick for pigs. for those that are not red necks this is a 3' 5/8" fiberglass dow rod with nylon wrapped around it. When he did not have one of those it was a horse whip (same thing just with a leather loop at the end)

    When I went to school, here in Houston, you would sign the paddle after meeting it. Anyone else have that tradition?

    Yeah, not true AT ALL. I used to be of the same mindset. I was wrong too.

    However, there is a better class of drugs now for the treatment of ADD?ADHD.

    Mine picked up an old shingle to paddle me with, it broke, I laughed, I didn't laugh when he whacked my rear with his coiled lariat rope.....

    Mom didn't paddle, much worse, when I goofed, she gave me bathroom KP, scrubbing the commode inside and out. Also Yard Bird duty, couldn't leave the yard to go play "over yonder". It worked better than paddling in my case. :icon_popcorn:
