(n.) Using the pharmaceutical drug, Adderall
(or similar ADD treatment medication), in order to pull an all-nighter because you were too damn lazy to study beforehand. Nevertheless, this performance-enhancing drug is a fantastic study aid.
According to the Federal Drug Administration, "students with lower grade point averages of B’s or below use stimulants at a rate of 5.2%, compared to students earning B+ or above who use this medication at rates of only 3.3%."
Good job all you procrastinating, late-night crammers. And a special high-five to the Greek system, who uses these stimulants at a much higher rate of "8.6% compared to nonmembers who reported use at rates of only 3.3%."
James McFratty: Hey I need to get some some Concerta (or Adderall-equivalent) to pull an Adderall-nighter for tomorrow's final!
Ryan: Do you want some 36mg pills?
James: Cha, Brah!
Ryan: Don't forget to eat. It's an appetite-suppressant! Oh, and watch out for the potentially fatal condition known as serotonin syndrome.
James: SWEET--I'll dedicate my barely-passing grade to you!
