the one about the fights is the truest one. a couple of my buds got into a fight that lasted all of 30 seconds and noone wins. both of them got suspended for 3 weeks and when they found out that my friend was taking ritalin just to help him listen in class, they made him take therapy sessions once a week for 2 months.....
