I saw Will Ferrell (sp?) on a BBC interview (he has a formal Dx and he's previously been open about his AS) and I think he's a great model too.

Martin Prince on The Simpsons. Ungodly obsessed with grades and extra credit, brilliant at every school subject, unpopular because he assumes that all the other kids appreciate these skills. An incredibly smart Aspie. Somehow Ned Flanders also pops up. Totally no feeling for social situation, secre...

R.I.P. I learned how to use computers with a Mac, and I've always preferred their interface to Windows.

You know what's awesome about this thread? No one has turned it into a "OMG DID HE HAVE ASPERGERS" thread.

Syd Barrett, Kurt Cobain, Bob Dylan, John Lennon and Daniel Johnston all show/have shown signs of AS. I also think John Lydon, Sid Vicious, Jah Wobble and Shane MacGowan might be on the spectrum. Almost all of those people are drug addicts/alcoholics. That woud be a more likely explanation for erra...

its not a movie but sheldon from the big bang theory , an example of one awesome aspie! People claim he was. The actor was more unsure. There is no settled proof. I think it's more of a throw up in the air thing. The creators of the show said he doesn't have Asperger's. Really now? Could you show m...
