I have seen these stupid things online and in stores for a while, but yesterday I saw it being used for the first time.  I was having breakfast in a truckstop, and a driver I have listened to, and tolerated for several weeks, was contradicting everyone on anything they said.  When I looked over, he was sitting with one hand up spinning one of these stupid things.  Someone is getting rich off the modern version of the Pet Rock.

Some teachers are using them to help kids with attention problems, as well as certain levels of autism. Our youth pastor's wife works with younger school kids and says these things have actually helped some of her kids with their focusing abilities.

I think for the other 90% of folks it is just another fad.
"Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined...The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun."~Patrick Henry

For the Patriots of this country, the Constitution is second only to the Bible for most. For those who love this country, but do not share my personal beliefs, it is their Bible. To them nothing comes before the Constitution of these United States of America. For this we are all labeled potential terrorists. ~ Dean Garrison

I agree that there is a place for these, but you last statement is the most important part of your post.

No.  He was one of those know it all tough guys.  Early 30'show, local driver who tells all the old veteran long haulers how it's done.

Anyone with a man bun deserves a kick in the c*nt.

Yeah, what Frank said.
Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom.
It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.
-William Pitt, British Prime-Minister (1759-1806)
