The Syncopes of Genius

Having learned that "fickle" electronic chips have a tremendous amount of extra-power (see my 25th of May posting), it has now been revealed that the Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) may actually be... creativity's spark-plug, which sets geniuses apart from easily pigeon-hole-able mortals!...

Could this be the reason why such "outcasts" find it hard to fit in the overwhelmingly conservative societal patterns? Though commercial "free-marketing" overkill has meant that social mores... are a changing (Oh, Dylan!) and everyone is looking for a "personal style" to make them look less of a social sheep, worthy of the shit they get from advertisers (a car that looks your style, a laptop that oozes personality, designer animal clothing for your loved pet etc.), it seems that no matter how much parvenu potential is contained in your sexy bones and boring genes, it is most improbable it will actually include that wonder-full (sic!) stroke of genius!
