Not all wait staff can act.

Glad my part of the show went well.

Tourettes is just an excuse to swear.

First off, Bill, you're the best.

Secondly, we mean Tourettes in the way that if something is on his mind he has to say it or he is extrememly uncomfortable. It doesn't even have to be important. It could be shoehorning in a pun or mumbling a thought.

I picture it being like if you had a twitch or something you do, like stretching your neck or opening up your armpits so they breathe for a second or it feels weird, but this is with words.

I think I'm still onto something with my other theories (bipolar, The Smiths), but I voted yes.

I'm voting yes. If I have Tourette's (which I think I do, because that's how I'm voting), it's a very mild form of it. It's not absolutely completely imperative for me to get the words out, like it is for some people, but it certainly feels better. Ditto with certain tics I have, like jerking my head. The jerking of the head thing comes and goes but when I have it, it stays for a few months at a time and it's much more crucial to do it than saying words that come into my head.

I can trace it back to around when I was 9 or 10 and the motivation is the same as it is now (even though it's currently not an issue). I will not feel good unless I let myself experience the tic (say the words, jerk the head, etc.) When I do relieve myself and experience it, I still don't feel any better. Then I do it again and again and again, with the same results until the need to do it recedes.

Huh.

That's not Tourette's. That's Attention-Whorette's.

You're doing great Danny if you do have it.

And if you don't we'll still call you Superman.

I'm In Heaven

I'm speechless...

Someone please come up with a clever title for the Katguh Award this interview with Ol Bill so clearly deserves. Bucho, what do you think?

Chemda: A++

Keith: A++

WSE3: You sir, are beyond the grading scale. I will give you something more appropriate. Like, a

Bill in Nebraska really and truly is, (currently) the most fascinating KatG fan to ever call in. He must do a WMN via phone call. As Chemda suggested, an editing of all the long, struggling brain synapses, (however holy and God given) would be respectful to listeners avoiding nap time.
