    Why would i take the piss? he's a legend. He's naturally born funny, says it how it is, completely destroys people who say stupid things and hates pathetic small talk.
    Not you specifically but some of the comments here are nasty.

    The guy is clever though. I remember when they read out his a levels in assembly. When he was in year 11 (so 2 years early) the headmaster was like 8 a levels, all As, in maths, further maths, additional further maths, blah blah blah) And then the last one was at grade B and everyone started giggling. I don't know why the hell he bothered with 6th form tbh...

    at my school everyone would be going 'AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH like football hooligans and chanting dumbass and retard'

    so many people cried on stage in assembley at our school.

    I remember when a disabled kid won a certificate and everyone was telling him to walk down and collect it and to stop being shy, even though he was wheel chair bound. When the headteacher came in and they said all stand, people would be saying to the disabled kid 'stop being disrespectful and stand' then someone would shout really loudly 'he's got no legs' then everyone would be laughin their heads off.

    Those people who are social - are they mathematically retarded?

    To me, to be someone who is ultra-logical but not social is on a par with those who are not logical but very social. Yet it is frequently seen as better to be the second kind of person and only better to be the first kind if you're lucky enough to be some famous Stephen Hawking type person.

    I meant "sweet" as in "touching that he found happiness".

    Jos went to my school. He has some form of autism so don't take the piss.

    He's at cambridge doing physics i think (because he already knows the stuff for a maths degree ). About to go into his 3rd year.

    But as for the thread title - it tends to be yeah. Shame
    He went to Oxford

    That guy at the end of the first clip has a pretty hot girlfriend somehow.

    Sacha Baron Cohen's cousin at the start of the second clip, too.

    I can't believe I watched all that. It's quite interesting. I sympathise a bit with Jos. That Imdad (sp?) guy went to my brother's school.
