Ten percent of ten year old boys in the U.S. are on “stimulants” aka legal amphetamines aka speed. This is so obviously fucked up I don’t even know what to say about it. I keep thinking it is impossible for me to be more disgusted with my country.
I do have a solution though. Make all children join Death Metal Bands. Leaping around in silly outfits ought to give them something to focus on. That would be so awesome! Instead of marching bands we ought to be funding metal bands in all our schools. They have better costumes and probably the instruments are cheaper, though when they get set on fire and covered in pig blood you might have to replace them.
