  1. I have ADHD and I can confidently tell you that fidget spinners are just a distraction that makes things worse. I don't even own a fidget spinner and yet they distract me in class. The sound of other people's spinners is super annoying and seeing the blur in the corner of my eye keeps me from focusing on math problems and such. I get the urge to smack them on the ground whenever somebody pulls one out.
    Not to mention when I borrowed a friend's spinner to see what the fuss was about, I kept playing with it until they forcefully took it from me. I didn't even notice the teacher was talking because I was intent on doing a trick with it. My friend saved me from detention. So yeah. I wholeheartedly agree that they shouldn't be allowed. They're more distracting to me than phones and those aren't allowed, at least not in my school

  2. it started with tops but evolved into a spinner, they came from the edc community , the first known company I have known was torqbar and then zerofued. this was maybe 3 years ago. but these were only made with precious metals, timascus,titanium, superconductor etc. there were attractive to the edc community because of the craftsmanship and quality of the build, much like a well made knife

  3. This still does not answer my question with they things, what is the the point of getting one other then spending more money on useless junk that will die out in the next month. Like my school has already forgotten about them just at the point that I got one, also sines when is having a fidget spinner app the same as having a fidget spinner in your hand, there is totally a difference between the two points, owe but what one cool dude said that they are there is no difference between the two points so I wonder know is there really a difference between the two.
    God to the mother fudging hell, I'm dealing with more idiots then a room full of smart people that forgot how to upon a pull door that has the words pull on it and is the only door in the room that they can come in and out from.

  4. A women from California invented it, she had a patent and then expired and she couldn't afford to renew the patent so she just left it as is. She hasn't earned a dime but she's happy everyone likes it even though people don't know much about her
