Many of you ADDers may be shocked to know that I love to web surf... especially when I have something more pressing and less interesting in front of me. I make sure to justify this by finding REALLY interesting content. Today I found this new animated video that is shot from the perspective of a student with ADHD. The video is available on YouTube and can be found on a minimalistic campaign website called "Living with ADHD."

I have one, you have one.

If you remove the first letter, a bit remains.

If you remove the second letter, bit still remains.

After much trying, you might be able to remove the third letter also, but it remains. 

It dies hard!
