Maybe you could then also "text" your dog similarly, by sending a tune/tone that would come to be associated with the "I'm on my way home." sound.

I see plenty of people who are essentially fused to their phone headsets. Maybe they could be broadcasting their voice to a little speaker on doggo's collar at the same time (as long as it isn't a confidential call that non-dogs could tap into).

Several I only narrowed down to 2 or 3 and guessed, so I'm sure the results are about as relevant as Lone Starr and Dark Helmet's familial ties.

Total: 19/25
IQ: 123

I was always the "unmanly" one in a group when someone had to start/rev a powerful (and therefore loud) vehicle. So I spent a lot of time suppressing my startle reflex. Then, one year a group came into my school to do a demonstration that involved "surprising" someone in the audi...

Again and again I have raised the issue of right brained dominance in autism leads to greater creativity, flexibility and thus adaptability (more refined masking). I find it very revealing that the 'specialists' in the feild of autism have not even begun to take this on, which in my mind is a direc...

A lot of it seems like they're assuming the specific "why" from the general "what" without accounting for other common reasons. * Predict, plan out and rehearse conversations before they happen, out loud or in your head --I see characters in movies do this all the time. It's a cl...

On the flip side, from my assessment one of the notes considered relevant was that I didn't use any gestures. I do have a few in my repertoire now (no, not just flipping the bird). I'm not sure how the right amount of gesticulation is quantified, but I guess more than nothing is expected. Side note:...

As a kid I interrupted until it was brought to my attention (that is, my grandma scolded me for it.). Since then I wait for the end of a sentence and a 1-2 second pause to talk (unless it's an emergency). So now instead of getting criticized for interrupting, I get interrupted and criticized for &qu...

Some professionals used to say that someone would "grow out of it" if they were on the milder side. I suspect that improvements are not mother nature's magic wand, but the fruits of that persons own work and adaptability. I've learned various social rules and make mistakes much less common...

The only way to change the past is to try your best in the present, so you needn't regret it in the future. There's plenty of past events that I revisit and wonder how they could have been better. Even an incident when I was 9 when I said something which hurt one of my classmate's feelings. Also, le...

Both over 10 years old, but I liked "Mozart and the Whale" and "Ben X".

I also consider the 1986 movie "The Boy Who Could Fly" an underrated classic, but it could just be the nostalgia talking.

No, I'm pretty sure people on the spectrum follow the standard physical attractiveness curve. That is, some are very attractive, some aren't and most are near the middle. AS is irrelevant to why I look like an old shoe. :lol:

Camera: "Oops, I blinked."

They just need an MRI hat that moves with the subjects head I guess.

I've said it before, but I love the series, so... "L Lawliet", and "Near" from the "Death Note" anime. L, with his preferred sitting posture & particular way of handling objects... Near, especially for his fondness of stacking/lining up objects & stimming by twi...

Many people on the spectrum have food textures that are a "no-go". I think most people are put off by raw eggs because of the runny/slimy texture, but I could see the sort of rubbery consistency of cooked eggs being bad too. I actually like unusual textures, so I'll eat just about anything...

...going over lists or images of people, items, concepts etc in my head in order to calm myself down and put my mind at ease. Are same "items" on the lists repeated multiple times, or is it more like checking off one at a time until you clear one of the sets? Just curious since that didn'...
