I don’t know Om. Maybe you secretly yearn to learn the Japanese martial art of Jiu Jitsu.

or maybe it’s just a cool phrase to say :stuck_out_tongue:.

You can unlearn how to do that if you want.
Its just a habit. You probably like the feeling of saying the words.

I can’t stop.
It gives me satisfaction

I mean you can if you want to. It sounds like you don’t want to though.

I say many stupid things.
I don’t have control over it.

Mr Thoughtless controls me

I have exactly the same thing. At least 70 times a day i say the same phrase (gibberish). It gives me satisfaction too, but I have to be careful not to say it in public.

It’s more like autism than tourette

Yes i do. For example i say several times a day “the penis massacre repeated live” - i don’t know what it means. :laughing:

I had a “normie” girlfriend once who always said “Greatest hits of america.” without any context.

My dad always said “Yes we have no bananas”

I don’t think it’s autistic, it’s just odd

It’s just madness?

Yes. A mild, benign kind of madness.
I spoke with a normie friend, he has it too. We call it “pop ups.”

You have the stream of consciousness, and suddenly something like “jiu jitsu” pop up

It’s hilarious.

You should consider learning jiu-jitsu so you could provide some legitimate context for your random sayings. I mean, it could be worse, like repeating “Ricky Martin” whenever you greet a neighbour.
