AKA Goldfishism

The gold fish theory is put into place when a person of minimal intelligence repeatedly asks the same question over and over within a 3 second time frame. This is most likely caused by the person have ancestry tracing back to goldfish. You will experience the Goldfish Theory more in depth if you work in the IT or MIS related fields. 80% of users will experience Goldfishism when they continue to ask the same question over and over and over and over and over.

Overfeeding these users is not recommended, but is a known solution to resolve Goldfish Theory. (Please note over feeding the user may result in death of the user, this is very similar to when you overfeed a goldfish.)
