This sounds like the opposite of Asperger's. Groinperger's?

Car Salesmen get this. But me and my credit rating seem to be the cure.

Didn't a patient of the week have this on House?

Developmental disorder =/= illness, subspecialperson.

Pretty sure that was just advanced syphilis. Then again maybe that's what this girl has.

I thought the opposite of Aspergers was Mouthpergers.

Dr. Oz hasn't mentioned it.

It can't be real.

Okay, I'm using this excuse the next time someone brings up my past love life.

No - GOING down syndrome.

Oh, I remember reading about this disease. Oliver Sacks wrote a whole bunch about it in Musicophilia. Interesting stuff, apparently these people are often very eager to make music as well.

Do you really want hypersocial strangers constantly talking to you about stuff you don't care about?

You ever take a walk in the city? Homeless people do this all the time. At least the mentally ill ones.

And a few hipster bums, as well. Not to mention the followers of Hare Krishna.

I can think of a few farkers who could use this, too bad it's genetic and not communicable

All funny, and unfunny comments aside, I appreciate this posting subby. This article describes a little boy I know whose parents may appreciate finally learning what his problems stem from.

For once I find Fark.com useful for something other than a good laugh...

Wonders will never cease.

Doesn't rabies do this?

Every time there's an article about an unusual illness I always skip reading from where they name the illness and read the wikipedia entry on the disease and then go back to the article.

"Unusually cheerful demeanor and ease with strangers" and caused by the deletion of about 26 genes.

fark! If scientists can just identify which gene you can delete that causes the unusually cheerful demeanor and ease with strangers and get rid of it without causing the cognitive disabilities and cardiovascular problems I'll pay them whatever the hell they want to obliterate the fark out of that gene in me.

I would love to have an unusually cheerful demeanor and ease with strangers that's not just the mask and show I have now.

Rare. Too bad. (As opposed to other diseases.)

Of all the illnesses out there, this one would make a good movie.
But could you imagine, one third of the population can't help themselves to invading your personal space gettin' all snuggly and such.
It would get pretty damn annoying. They'd be having sex all over the place, babies popping out like rabbits, over-whelming population growth, mass starvation...

Are we sure this is a rare disease?

Strippers and hookers have always been nice to me, but I've never met one when they were working.

I'm one of the odd people who are so asocial that anyone walking up and talking to me is essentially doing just that, at least in my mind.

I'm fine with it. I can stand and listen to pointless blather for hours.
