    I already know the answer as far as I'm concerned and I'm comfortable with that. Embrace it. It is quite liberating.

    I am good for multiple posts per day, not like I care just stating examples. Literally if my thoughts were cartoon bubbles where all could read, good grief.

    I've been called every name in the book.
    Good and bad.
    What I've found out though is, those that call me an ******* are those that the locals dispise. I'm OK with that.
    I did hear I was "a good looking guy" by a few women lately.
    :cool:

    Here's one. For a forum of avid hunters that know we are hunting not sitting in the woods to play our phones. Why is live from the stand the most popular thread? Ffs get off your phone and look around.

    You know what they say about having to ask and being willing to assume things?

    When I hunt I do so to escape instant responsibility. Then again I have zero apps or games on my iPhone. Put that **** down.

    i told myself, this year while hunting im only using my phone to check the time/weather, take pics/video of wildlife, or to study maps. Not necessarily in that order. Oh, and if i can find a pizza man to deliver to my tree i will call him but thats it!

    Evidently receiving an e-mail about a scheduled meeting about an upcoming event at the company is simply a suggestion. I put an end to lunch meetings, meeting now start at 1:00. 1:05 today I am hunting down people to tell them we are having a meeting and we are waiting on you. I got one reply I didn't think, nope you did not get in there. Punctuality is a big part of being a professional, don't care if me calling that out makes me an *******.

    I can multitask, actually, I think it helps me sit still more than hurts my hunt. I am constantly on the look. It might take me 5 minutes sometimes to type out a couple line post, even longer to read a full page.

    If you have ever followed(while not in stand) the thread you'll see that I don't have the most patience while on stand. I get bored easily when not having movement especially in November when they are supposed to be on their feet :lol: I'll change stands 4-5 times at times over 4-5 hours. The thread helps keep me occupied, yet I remain alert to my surroundings. Kind of like in today's lunacy world, situational awareness, it's a must have. You need to be able to keep aware of what's around you while going about a normal routine.

    It works for some while others despise it, sue me and call me an ******* :lol:

    I have ADHD and cannot be medicated for it. Being on the phone keeps me still. I look down at the phone for a few seconds, look up, scan, repeat. If it doesn't affect you, why are you concerned with what others do when in the woods? Mind you own effing business a$$hole!! LOL

    Ok. Whenever traffic is backed up, and there is a wreck, i get mad at the people in the wreck (as long as its not a bad one). If there is a no injury wreck and it backs traffic up for a mile and inconveniences me i start cussing the involved parties. Now alot of the time you cant tell who the person at fault is so im sorry in that case both parties are presumed A$$holes. If i see someone rear ended another then the person with the crunched up hood is a super A$$hole and the other party has my condolences. So, am i the A$$hole?

    Only 5 symptoms of the possible 18 are required to be clinically diagnosed as having ADHD. Basically, every person I have ever met could qualify. I certainly did as a child. Fortunately, my father had a very inexpensive treatment that seemed to cure me for life.

    Your highlighted stat is complete bullsh1t!


    According to the DSM-5, The inclusion criteria for clinically diagnosing ADHD, require 6 out of the 9 criteria for the behavior trait of inattention, For adults over the age of 17, 5 out of 9 are required. For impulsivity/hyperactivity, 6 out of the 9 listed criteria are required for diagnosis, and 5 out of 9 for adults over the age of 17. I can list out all the inclusion criteria for both if you'd like.

    There are three types of ADHD diagnoses. The first is a combined presentation, meaning a person meets the inclusion criteria for both inattention and hyperactivity/impulsivity. The second is inattentive presentation, where a person meets the criteria for inattention but not for hyperactivity/impulsivity. The third is hyperactive/impulsivity presentation where a person meets the criteria for hyperactivity/impulsivity but not inattention.

    It then breaks down further into symptom severity, which I'd be glad to go over.


    I wonder how different my life would have been if my father beat me because I couldn't sit still? I'm sure, like you, I would have been cured instantly. Cool story though bro, stay in your lane, stick to your profession and leave mine alone.
