I'm not so sure about this, but maybe, just maybe, possibly, on the slightest verge, Peppy was making a joke?
Also saying people don't have braincells to actually check the article is a bit extreme. A simple mistake on most parts. But about the whole fad thing and it not being so bad, it's not the thing itself, but it's the people who use it or do it. They act like psychos about it, at least in my experience. The people who I've seen have been freaking out whenever they can't find their spinner or it breaks, by that I mean they will literally scream and have a mental breakdown. Whenever someone who doesn't have a spinner shows up, they enjoy making fun of them because "They are poor and can't afford a shuper kewl spinur." Of course it's pretty shallow teasing but it's still annoying. This is at least what I've seen in my place, maybe I just live in a crappy place. But that is what normally causes people to hate these things. Also not to start a fight or anything, but this aggression you bring upon us isn't exactly the most grown up thing either. Not saying that to start a fight, just pointing it out.
I type too much, anyways, in other news some guy made a use for fidget spinners. Tinder dating.
It's not really that impressive though...
