Dot Com Autists: Get Some 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' Therapy


As we all know, web-tards aren't known for their sparkling personalities, and fair enough: sitting in front of a computer all day isn't exactly sociable. But not to worry! There's now help from an unlikely source.

The New Yorker reports that therapists are using HBO's "Curb Your Enthusiasm" to help teach schizophrenic patients social skills -- apparently schizos can relate to Larry David's hilariously painful awkwardness, known in clinical terms as social disfunction.

One clinical psychology student says he considers the Larry David the perfect proxy for a schizophrenic person, which somehow isn't surprising. If only mental illness could be so profitable for everyone.
