Oddly enough I first came across him through an experimental album/LP he'd made in 1962 (pre-Beatles first single incredibly), a track called "Love you" which upon first hearing would probably strike the average listener as one of the most disturbing and insane pieces of 'music' ever comm...

I don't talk about my disabilities often because I know that people cannot understand them and trying to explain them becomes too frustrating. I also know that my issues are not solvable. That is not an opinion, it's a fact and it is recognized by my team of doctors and therapists. The problem is t...

When we have dinner or when they call me for something, all they hear is a loud, disgusted sigh. My mother wants me to do all my own meals from now on, it seems, because of this. I'm trying to move out, but apparently, it's not moving fast enough for me (I live near Sacramento). My mother really do...

Thanks for posting this. Excellent explanation of various deceptive propaganda techniques.

To the moderators: Maybe a link to this thread could be added to the locked sticky thread Skeptics Resources?

The only way to find out is to call up some local group homes (whichever ones you think you are most likely to be put in) and ask what their policies are regarding clothing storage. Good luck with this! Who do you think will likely be putting you in a group home? Your parents, or some other person o...

First thing out of her mouth was that if I confessed suicidal feelings to her she was legally required to report me to the police. I noticed that Relate in the UK began to do that kind of thing. It seems the confidentiality of the interview has been compromised by some newish law or other, so now t...

I recently came across a page about the following book : Overcoming Anxiety and Depression on the Autism Spectrum: A Self-Help Guide Using CBT by Lee A Wilkinson, PhD, Nova Southeastern University (2015) I'm considering whether to add this book to a forthcoming list of resources on my website. Has a...

It was originally sloganized around the 2ks. No, "Be yourself!" is much older than the 2ks. Goes back to at least the 1960's and probably much earlier. In fact, a similar phrase -- "To thine own self be true" -- appears in one of Shakespeare's plays , way back around 1600. I tak...

The only concern I have about China owning US equities and land is that they aren't a democracy.

How about the fact that they bid up the price of land, thereby contributing to the housing crisis, among other problems caused by high real estate prices?

What kinds of experiences has anyone here had with the following, as places to learn programming?

- brilliant.org
- udemy
- codewars

(These sites were mentioned in a recent online support group meeting, and I am wondering whether they should be recommended to people new to programming.)

I personally find it easier to listen to "hard truths" from people whose worldviews are basically similar to my own than from people who seem to live in a completely different universe. But, yes, I need my friends to be assertive with me, and to let me know (preferably in a non-aggressive ...

Howdy folks! What is good and bad about having groups with "aspies" doing activites or just going to a café together? The term "aspies" is a bit dated, but apart from that issue.... Do you think such groups are easier for us? Depends on how the group is run. In my opinion, it ca...

I'm inclined to disbelieve it. Trump would have loved to have the opportunity to shoot down a Chinese spy balloon or three, it could only have helped him domestically.

One would think. But the odd thing is that this is in the Daily Mail, which I would expect to have a pro-Trump bias, if anything.

just got back- it wasn't quite my pace to be honest; there wasn't much conversation (possibly on account of it being virtual) or structure really. i think maybe what i need is more of a support group and less of a social group? General social groups tend not to work too well, for autistic people, u...

It can take people in any type of group time to warm up and get to know each other. In my own support group that meets via text-based chat, we try to help this process along by making a point of being friendly to newcomers, as follows: 1) Having a round of introductions in any meeting where there a...
