what's the deal with that guy?, i honestly would like to know
He's a savant.
Didn't he get hit in the head as a teenager or something?
an idiot one.
Yes, he is retarded...but like a rain man, an idiot savant like you guys said.
anyone living at home with their parents past the age of 18 must have something wrong with them
SFN under attack...check it out while it lasts!!!
Hell no. Sour's a fucking genius. For real.
He could be a savant, with a high musical proclivity, that is below normal in other areas of cognition. The fact that he hasn't moved out of the parents home could be because poor adaptive ability, personality or other mental disorders keeping him from functioning in daily life. A strange, wonderful individual.
I don't think he is retarded, but he's definitely got a touch of the Aspergers.
Asperger syndrome, also known as Asperger's syndrome or Asperger disorder, is an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) that is characterized by significant difficulties in social interaction, alongside restricted and repetitive patterns of behavior and interests.
No Aspergers is someone like Underdog Lady, that has significant impairment in social skill development (she doesn't pick up on social cues, is preoccupied with one thing in a dialogue, has strange affect that doesn't match what is going on around her) as well as repetitive patterns of behavior and interests such as her extreme interest in cats, Under Dog or vampires. Sour has social skills that can match appropriately what is going on in his environment (watch him when he thinks he is off the air). He has a high proclivity and talent in music but doesn't have the ability to function normally in adaptive living. He doesn't provide for himself, and things like that. This leads me to believe that he has impairment in another area that leaves him unable to handle the stresses of daily living (major depressive disorder, personality disorder, etc).
You either have a long-term mental illness or you majored in psychology.
^^^^A lot of times those 2 go hand in hand.
Or maybe both?
...No, I am a therapist but I treat another entirely different population.
I think he's kind of cute, but like my avatar, Patsy...
I'm a slut too, so make of it what you will...
This! Love that guy.
