Somebody please tell me these fidget spinners are a useless distraction and that they have zero cognitive benefit for people with attention deficit issues so that I can continue in my raging irritation at them and persist in my fantasies of chucking them out a fifth-story window onto Michigan Avenue. They’re a nefarious fad, I just know it. Back me up here.
That’s how it is, see? My gut reaction is annoyance, and so I’m employing my faculties of reason to support my gut. Information that contradicts my gut I don’t want to hear.

“Don’t take people’s moral arguments at face value. They’re mostly post hoc constructions made up on the fly, crafted to advance one or more strategic objectives.”
