I don't want to hang out with anyone anymore. I just irritate people. I doubt that is true; you are very popular on this board for instance. I'm not really, it's just that I'm stuck in the house all summer. So I end up spending all day on here which means I talk to a lot of people. The more I talk ...

This happened to me once although I was on strong (prescribed) drugs at the time and had a fairly severe illness

I used to be quite interested in guns. I used to go clay pigeon shooting with a friend and he had several different shotguns over the years: An ithaca 10 bore (roadblocker), a savage stevens, a couple of baikal side-by-sides and also a nice converted ruck rifle (converted to a .410). We also used to...

Sometimes going forward into the more advanced stuff helps sometimes, since early things may be going over too many details and you may need to see the big picture of what is going on then attach all the details to this overall view of things. Yeah, Richard Allenby mentions this in the preface to h...

I am weird I guess. I really like literature, math, science, history. But that isn't wierd though. There is a stereotype of mathematicians just being interested in math and then maybe science but aside from math, I am probably more interested in literature then science. I think this is common. I me...

It is a term normally used pejoratively by Aspergians with a chip on their shoulder who seem to form the impression that all non-Aspergians conform to the same aloof, cold-hearted personality. Are you sure that definition doesn't apply more to NTA than to NT? It does with me. I don't use NT pejorat...

Not necessarily. I use 'NT' all the time. I've described some of my family as NT, that doesn't mean I was ...

What do you think of women? Don't you like autistic women? Do you want to have NT-women?


I don't know about everyone else but personally, I don't go round thinking 'oh, I want some friends, but only if they are all Aspergian'

I just take people as they come, whatever they are.

Calculators, spell checkers, PDAs, and to some extent even cell phones have rendered the masses just plain stupid. I almost never used a calculator in school, I never use spell checkers or use a calendar PDA or notebook for appointments, and I keep all my phone numbers in my head, and I find that I...

Meh. There is nothing wrong with calculators, they are a useful tool if used correctly. I thing the one thing that they don't teach which they should is techniques for numerically approximating things; these techniques used to be more important when using things like slide rules and log tables but t...
