Flibberdegibbet or ADD?

A philosopher in the 18th C said that there was enough to study for a lifetime under your hand, if you laid it on the ground. Amoeba, paramecium, crystals, worms, division of cells, water drops, grass blades, ants, rolypoly bugs, skin flakes, grub larvae, granite, clay, decay, beetle wing, rat hair, mosquito wing, eye of newt, and toe of frog, wool of bat, and tongue of dog, Adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting, and from there to Shakespeare, witches, aquariums, fire-bellied toads, crickets, song, birds, bird poo, eggshells, calcium...get it?

A few years ago someone told me I had ADD.

That explains a lot.
