The first clip is almost tolerable if I pretend that Linus is Belle (the singer, not the Disney character).

So His Billness rocks in his chair, I don't see what's terribly funny about that

Regarding the first clip, um ... yuck.

Regarding the second clip, like EFG I don't see what the big deal is about Bill Gates rocking back and forth in his chair.  I know several people who do that either when they're thinking hard or nervous.

Linus' weight isn't distributed properly

This is how it's done

Yeah I do that from time to time ... serves as a kind of 'clock chip' for my thoughts.

Epic Fail Guy:  Regarding that last clip you posted ... yeah, yeah, I can totally see that.  For the Linus Torvalds clip, I'm going to have to get a pencil, stick it in my ear, and dig the memory out; while I'm in there I might as well get goatse and tubgirl too.

Asperger's, autism or whatever he's rumored to have.  Bill Gates only seems to be slightly on the spectrum if he is at all.  Big deal.  Many great minds, and famous thinkers are. Stimming is a coping mechanism,  especially in times of stress. I think anyone would be stressed while under fire in court.

I wouldn't say it was that bad, tbh. He's just tubby. What he really needs is a studded gut guard.

His Billness has AS. Which is a form of autism, or at least very nearly related with it.

I wonder how stressed he was during that trial. If I remember correctly, he thought the proceedings were a waste of time. So I would guess that he was stimming in order to concentrate in that clip.
