When people don't bother to show you who they are, it's best not to bother with such people!

Switching pronunciations of the word 'data' based-on whether or not one is at their work, or one is outside of work settings is notable. I'm almost reminded of people in the U.S. who apply the 'Metric System' if they work, or are studying/training for occupations in the sciences, and precision-work....

Anybody feel that the 'Random Discussion Forum' might just act as an 'ice-breaker" when experiencing those "so-so" and even "not so good days?" My best experiences come from reading, and contributing to those discussion-threads that discuss the "lighter side of things&q...

As a data-analyst, it's best to pronounce 'data' as 'd ay ta.' More importantly, it's best to understand the distinctions amongst data, information, knowledge, wisdom, and value! P.S. I sometimes (not often) pronounce 'data' as 'd a ta' - more rarely, I pronounce 'data' as 'd a h ta' when communicat...

'News Story' discusses 'Christmas Crackers' and the day after Christmas, 'Boxing Day.' Note from 'News Story': The British favor 'Happy Christmas' over 'Merry Christmas.'

For young people on the spectrum, say in their teens and twenties, practicing social skills is probably helpful. But I suspect most autistics over 40 or so are probably like me - after decades of trying to overcome our difficulties in social situations we're too tired and burnt out to keep up the e...

It's mostly trial and error. Putting your 10000 hours in. If you're in high school/college, join clubs. Talk to classmates after class. Talk to people in hallways and at lunch. If you're an adult, find some meetups/social events. Do a job where you work with other people. Why? I don't want social i...

One thing about reliable pre-owned cars at least a few years-old is that these cars didn't come built with complicated TECH.

I hope to trade-up to a 2018-2020 hybrid Honda Civic from a 2018 gas-powered Civic with less than 35,000 miles.

For teh longest item, I've sometimes thought in non-English words - as non-English words (more often than not) may do better jobs in describing those elusive concepts than the English language itself. Examples of non-English words that are "thought favorites": - The German word 'fisselig' ...
