Hey, is this the thread where we make fun of retarded people?
I have a 12 year-old with a condition very similar to this (I'm guessing Autism, some have said Aspergers, but we have never received an exact "condition" name to call it) Anyway, she's obsessed with fire alarms and emergency vehicles and personnel. Sometimes her and I chuckle about some of the goofy stuff she comes up with....because she can see some of it's goofy. Would I let her make a video like this? Maybe, if she understood the ridicule that would come with it.
It's pretty disappointing to read some of the comments here though. People in general, suck.
OP, you can still fix this thread...
Your post was so far off-topic, after our staff has announced that discussion must remain on-topic, that we had no choice but to remove it.

Now I feel terrible. I thought the guy was just having a few laughs. Does it say somewhere on his profile he's autistic or did someone discover his condition through alternate means?
