So I'm not long finished watching a documentary on YouTube revolving around this Scottish chap who unfortunately has the Tourette Syndrome disease (can it be considered a disease? I dunno..).
Anyway, this doc had some extremely hilarious moments, which I guess would be a given when taking into account the nature of its content, but there were parts where the guy was literally in tears because of how his condition has ruined his life.
Nevertheless, I couldn't help but think I'd love to go out for a drink with this guy. Sure, we'd probably end up embroiled in a brawl of some sorts with others as a result of his tics, but dam, it would be worth it just for the sheer entertainment. Should I feel guilty for feeling this way? I mean, I laugh at this stuff the same way I would a comedian, not in some kind of mocking-their-disability manner.
So what are your thoughts? Do you happen to know anyone with the "disease"? Do you perhaps have some minor tics yourself?
Here's a highlights reel of the documentary: 2:35 onwards is the funniest part for me!
Caution: May induce split sides.
Also: yes, yes, that's not somebody with tourette's...that's just a typical Scottish person. Haha, extremely funny.... ...
