Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Was watching on 4, the story of a town in the states hit by Tourettes outbreak which affected the young female populace.

    When I saw the preview of documentary I thought it was a spoof / wind up / preview to a horror movie.

    Laying aside the speculated connection with a toxic spill a decade or so back, what would the medics opinion on this....and it would affect the female form....more so?
     
  2. If it happens once a month I think I may know the cause.
     
  3. Getting the credit card bill?
     
  4. It's all over Australia.

    Genetics or learned behaviour?
     
  7. An early, tropical version of this syndrome was discovered in the Chip Bee MSQ area in Singapore in 1974-5 when the Gordon Highlanders were the resident battalion.....:)
