    The character is quite strange ( I know he’s supposed to be ) and I was wondering if he’s retarded? Oh and for that matter, I really think Rimmer has Aspberger’s. He has so many passions nobody cares about, is left out of things, has obsessive knowledge on certain subjects, he really reminds me of me.

    Man, I’m getting good at knowing who posted what thread of utter bullshit before I even click!

    What’s the bit at the start of Mr Bean all about? Is he being thrown out of a UFO? Is he an alien or did the aliens just regret abducting him? When I was younger I thought he was being rejected from heaven.

    I always thought he had died and been dumped out, so yeah rejected from Heaven. I didn’t mean to be rude about the condition either, I didn’t know retarded wasn’t in use anymore. :/ I guess I should have said “Does Mr. Bean have Down Syndrome? And if not, why not?”

    No. Don’t do that.

    Jason. I’m not saying this applies to the reality of the live action series. But Mr Bean is shown to be an alien at the end of the cartoon series, in the last episode when a ship full of clones come to pick him back up, which is a link to the original title sequence.

    “I didn’t know retarded wasn’t in use anymore.”

    Are you from the past?

    ThatSmegheadRimmer – you intimate in your original post you have Asperger’s Syndrome? I know this may mean you find it a bit harder to understand that sometimes what you’re saying may be offensive to others. Depends on your spectrum level.

    Down’s Syndrome is a chromosome disorder that can cause varying levels of learning difficulty but is also coupled with the characteristic physical features. So, no. Mr Bean doesn’t have Downs Syndrome.

    I also used to think he was being chucked out of heaven as a kid!

    Oh, ThatSmegheadRimmer. Remember when I said “you’ve got a lot to learn”, and you said “I know, but it’ll be fun finding out”?

    I… really wish you’d been right.

    Aren’t we all from the past? Neil Tyson would likely say so.

    Asperger’s isn’t that bad of a thing to have, it just means you look at things differently and you’re smart- I think Albert Einstein had it- but it also means sometimes you don’t know when you’re being offensive and this is one of those times. Sometimes I just like diagnosing characters fictional or otherwise with disorders for fun ( I know, I’m weird) and.. this wasn’t a good example. XD Sorry.

    On another note, my username was right- I can’t wait for every time I smeg something up and my username says “ThatSmegHeadRimmer”. :rollseyes:

    Indeed not. It’s never caused me any problems.

    What about that time there was a Mr. Bean thread posted on G&T that made you quietly weep?

    Could you guys please not be so hard on me? Honestly, 85 percent of what happens on Red Dwarf is MUCH worse than this, and I’ve pretty much lost my desire to be here. So thanks… for nothing.

    I don’t know how much time you invested in making that, Seb, but it was worth every second.

    > Mr Bean is shown to be an alien at the end of the cartoon series, in the last episode when a ship full of clones come to pick him back up

    Now you mention it, I think I vaguely remember seeing this.If you choose to accept this as cannon, it adds a whole other layer to watching old Mr Bean episodes.

    > I’ve pretty much lost my desire to be here. So thanks… for nothing.

    Sounds like a new recommendation to me!
