A little information about The Jumping Frenchman of Maine!

The Jumping Frenchman of Maine disease (yes, that is it's name), is a genetic mutation that prevent's "exciting" signals in the nervous system from being regulated. For an example an event which might simply startle a normal person may cause a sufferer of "Jumper" to react in a extreme manner without will such as cry out, flail their limbs, twitch and sometimes go into convulsions. Jumpers are susceptible to episode's as soon as the previous one ends.

Jumpers also cannot help but obey orders. Sufferer's have an automatic reflex to obey any order given suddenly. If you told a jumper to say, hit his brother, he would do so with no hesitation. In addition he will also verbally repeat the command, uncontrollably. Jumper's suffer from a phenomenon known as echolalia.

Hmm, I smell a new boyfriend.
