Just what tha fuck? Come on!!! If I see one more thing about fidget spinners.

I'm going to pay Air Soft Guy to go stand in front of them. Then yell profanities in the most creative and colorful fashion he can think of.

It's a fad and people are cashing in. Business as usual.

Those who fidget will always fidget, whether clicking their pen incessantly or playing with a new doodad. I'm glad they have more options now, creative options too. Choice is good.

The new breed of not-really-fidgeters will eventually get bored and toss them in a drawer.

My grandkids have them. Who would think you could take a few race bearings put them together in colored plastic and make a billion dollars. I'm thinking a Pet Rock. Chris

The poor woman that invented it for her son didn't have the money for a patent renewal and doesn't get a penny from profits. She is okay with this as it helps kids out. She wouldn't mind having made money off it but realizes you can't go crazy over what you can't control.

They could be snapping their gum, so there is an up side.

"the meaning of life, is to give life meaning" I could explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

This guy hilariously disguised his distaste for them in a video about spinner tricks:

Actually, I've seen kids playing with those things and until this thread, I really had no idea what they were called...

At least they are better than those damned "clacking balls" from back in the day Big Grin
