Wow.
Calling Evan O'Dorney clip before I see it. Posterboy nerd (possible Aspergian, even?); I'm so glad QBers aren't actually like that.

His mom is a big time Jesus nut. They were talking to her in a fluff piece during the competition. Evidently, he's also big into writing shitty music a la David Helfgott.

Course that's what you get when you home school kids all their lives because public schools are the tools of Satan.

For a few seconds, I thought you said David Hasselhoff. This fan of yéyé and schlager music would be 100% in disagreement if that had been the case.

From what I saw in the clip, I'd characterize that child as definitely having Asperger's Syndrome.
6 characteristics of Asperger's:
1.) Difficulty with reciprocal social interactions
2.) Impairments with language skills (that is they see language as a way to share facts and information, not as a way to share thoughts, feelings, etc.)
3.) Narrow range of interests and insistence on set routines.
4.) Motor clumsiness
5.) Cognitive issues (inability to make inferences about what another person is thinking)
6.) Sensory sensitivity in one or all of the senses.

A number of those things were on display in just that 3+ minute video!

Of course, I'm sure mom had THAT all checked out during the course of his home-schooling, right?

I'm glad we have cleared this misunderstanding. I shall now cleanse my mind by listening to more cheesy 60s European music.

Chair Throw is the primary offensive power, and takes 2 good ACF questions to charge, but unleashes a devastating attack. Only fully-evolved Vinokurovs are immune to Chair Throw.

This is because the distance a Chair is Thrown to hit a Vinokurov is measured in feet. Somewhere in the conversion to meters, the Chair disintegrates. Vinokurovs have the original power from which Chair Throw is derived. Angry Launch is a devastating move which does damage proportional to the deficit in HP. Sadly, a Vinokurov cannot use this move on a Mueller because Vinokurovs never face deficits against Muellers.
