How about Fail Factory?

Just a bunch of videos of people screwing up.

Some are funny. Some persuade me, however, that NTs enjoy some things I don't.

I think two of my words bear emphasis: "eventually casually". Unless you have to, I wouldn't lead with Autism. After they get to know you and have concluded you're an OK person even though you have some quirks then, without making a big thing of it or trying to start a conversation, toss ...

Last night we watched: Miracle Mile [1988] <=> "There are 70 minutes to the end of the world. Where can you hide?" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PtaM2hFve_o It was in LA in 1988. There was still a Cold War so the U.S. and U.S.S.R. had their nuclear arsenals aimed at each other and on hai...

They almost certainly have preconceptions about Autistics. I know I did before I discovered I might be one. If you are high-functioning enough then you might be able to adjust their preconceptions by eventually casually mentioning that you are Autistic. That's a good idea! I think two of my words b...

I found these on the Internet: * - Healthhype.com " House Fly Diseases, Types, Spread and Prevention " * - Sciencealert.com " Flies Are Much More Disgusting And Disease-Ridden Than We Suspected " It seems the risk from an individual incident is low, but not zero. And, mathematica...

You can wish someone a good evening or night with the phrase: buenas noches.

If you want to wish them a good day the correct phrase is: buenas douches.

The term for a barrel with one end open is "buck". A small one is a "buckette"; over time, the term has been shrunk to "bucket".

Sure. All kinds of things happen to the food before it gets to my plate...but after it is cooked and certainly after it is served I do not want to share it with a fly. And I would avoid restaurants frequented by flies. Thinking what food would be on the menu if a fly was head chef? :D What would th...

OK. I'm assuming Putin gets dumped. If not, we could end up in WWIII. But if Putin is dumped, Ukraine has some HUGE complaints to be addressed. Reparations and war crimes for the harm Russia caused. Whatever follows Putin might not feel responsible for the harm he caused. And the general Russian pub...

I don't think of it as “making Putin pay”, I think of it as a prerequisite for "allowing the war to wind down". I think there are two possible paths to ending the war: Ukraine loses decisively or Putin loses decisively—and with the latter both countries could then limp away and hire an arm...

In 1993 the Big Chicken was sick and in danger of being torn down. I knew three people who lived in that area. One had long lived there; two had been coworkers here in the northeast that moved down there. None of the three knew each other but all three knew me. And when the Big Chicken was in danger...

People should make decisions about their own health but not other people's health. COVID is contagious. It is slowed down but not stopped by vaccines. It is slowed down but not stopped by masks and other precautions. And it seems some people's choices regarding their "personal" health was ...
