    I always wondered about the words that people with touretts said. You only ever hear about them saying inappropriate words, and I always thought that it was interesting that they are only affected with that type of tick. To see her ticks pepper her speech with both the F word, and biscuit, was really kind of enlightening.

    I found it interesting that the F word was heard so much around the reporter, but not around the children. She wasn`t with them long, but as much as she said it with him, you would think it would have come out with the children too. Maybe it`s some sort of subliminal control where she says the bad words less when it would normally be inappropriate for one to say them at all.

    So-o-o-o.... if you got someone like her to volunteer to be held completely immobile in a chair, would the verbal ticks increase or cease? It would be such an interesting affliction to try gentle experiments with.

    I once listened to a radio interview (yes, I`m that nerdish that I listen to talk radio on the way to work - besides the point), with a woman with Tourette`s.

    But her tic wasn`t "F*ck!", or "Biscuit!", it was "I love you!". It was either a) charming, b) very depressing that she had such a serious psychological disorder or c) just her being an attention whore and there was nothing wrong with her.

    You be the judge, I tried my best not to in that case.

    I`m so refreshed to find the first 5 comments on this thread to be insightful and/or empathetic. What a delightful switch.

    I watched this series a few weeks ago (it was on TV) as I am interested in the evolution of communication (Yes I`m a nerd too lol ). This episode was fascinating and also showed how the body`s response to pain reduces when you swear, but this doesn`t happen if you swear a lot in general. Stephen Fry was one guinea pig, and Brian Blessed was the other. It`s pretty funny to watch

    My former boss used to stutter, sometimes pretty bad. After a few weeks, you don`t even notice it anymore. Same thing here - you just get so used to it, you`d be thrown off if it were to disappear.

    The term "fxckbiscuit" has somehow weaseled it`s way into my vocabulary.

    Amazing woman, but that must be such a drain on her energy. Loved the bit where her dad told her to watch her language.
