I think you need more sleep Jake.

Also, he's got Down's Syndrome, not Broca's aphasia. It doesn't let him become a hulk like Hodor. Hodor: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6CJWo5TDHLE

Is he actually retarded or just autistic? The latter seems more likely, but he's just so Down's-y.

He actually does fit the physical features of Down's syndrome: upward slanted eyes, large forehead, poor vision. He's clearly mentally incapacitated, and he fits the Down's profile much better than an autistic profile.

Also, I enjoy my new nickname. :unsmith:

Did he say "On the Spot Die Spin?"

I can get that he didn't get "The World's Fastest Man" because "car" could easily take that place.

But does Indiana University just produce idiots? He didn't even know how to pronounce Achilles! I'd dread to see him on Jeopardy.

In related news, a month or so ago, there was a guy on Jeopardy without eyes. It was horrifying. He didn't have glasses or anything, just dark pits of nothingness, staring into the camera.

It is just an instinctual reaction on my part. I can't help but cringe at that guy on national television, and I immediately feel terrible not just for wanting to laugh, but knowing that a million other people are laughing their asses off.

And then I see the comments with such nice, sincere people ("Great job buddy!" "Way to live your life!" "I'm so drat happy for this guy.") and I feel even worse about myself because I literally can't imagine how you guys are able to honestly react that way.

Being honest and being condescending are not the same thing. It's how you say it that matters. Yeah, there are people who have to get all "Way to go, champ!" when someone with a mental handicap does anything at all, and that's rear end in a top hat-ish. If they disregard his disability and just say that he looked happy being up there, they're just making an observation. That's not rear end in a top hat-ish.

I could swear before Reddit got hold of it there were a few like that from older people with old people selfies who would have no idea of internet irony, too. I wish I could be that, I dunno, positive? Non-cynical?

I'm proud of the guy, sure. But that's after laughing my rear end off. I guarantee you that most of the people saying positive stuff, unless they're old ladies or super religious, have probably laughed their asses off too but just don't want to seem like assholes. So they post something positive.

I just watched this and it was great. I got 'cream cheese' and could not guess the rest. When he said "CREAM CHEESE COFFEE CAKE" I thought: what the everloving gently caress is a cream cheese coffee cake? I've never heard of such a thing. It's like saying, uh, "spotted dick and ham" to my mind. Is CCCC a thing that gets sold and made and people swap recipes for it and stuff?
