Tourettes Syndrome is a mental illness whereby the sufferer makes involuntary movements, and sometimes, involuntarily screams or shouts obscenities (Coprolalia). Numerous members of the opposite sex claim that I am the only diagnosed case of Tourette Syndrome By Proxy in the world today.
A couple of weeks ago, there was a programme on the TV over here, about a local sufferer of Tourettes. The programme showed him, amongst other things, standing in the queue at the local supermarket yelling "ARSCHLOCH!" at the top of his voice. I don't know what the fuss was about, but that's fairly normal behavior for a Cologne Supermarket, especially when there's a queue to the back of the store and they won't open another checkout.
In the end he found a job as a web-programmer, which is funny, because, in my experience, it usually happens the other way round.
