Tourettes extension for FireFox
« on: October 30, 2007, 07:57:05 AM »
With handy instructional video:
http://fffff.at/tourettes-machine/

The "extreme" version adds curse words every other time, while the lite version adds a surprise once every 3-5 hours.  Sounds like an office prank in the making...

Sourcecode is included, with instructions for rolling your goddamn own.

These are the same guys who laugh out of control when somebody farts or belches.  Nothing better to do with their time?   And yours?  :down:

Oh c'mon! It's funny! Maybe they do have too much time on their hands, but it is quite humourous.  :up:

Yes - I think Terrence and Philip are hilarious. I'm also Canadian. :D

I think it's funny too.

Mind you I got into trouble with the wife at home when a chap called Ed Balls came on the TV and I laughed so much I had to leave the room. My 7 year old son however failed to see what was so funny.

It's kind of neat they included the sourcecode, so you could create your own friendly, happy, environmentally PC version if you want.

OK, let me bring a little sanity here...
This extension is ACTUALLY trying to mimic Coprolalia which is a less-common-but-widely-publicized subset of symptoms of Tourette Syndrome, which is actually a serious disorder.
I'm not trying to damp anyone's fun, just that some people might not find it funny for very different reasons...

Thank you for defining the distinction.  I've known people with Tourettes and never understood the fine differences.

And for what it's worth, I've had a lot of experience with mental illness in family & friends (schizophrenia, bi-polar disorder, OCD, Alzheimer's, Tourettes) and bottom line, if you can't laugh about it you end up crying all the time.
