... Thank you for the information, that must have been a difficult situation for you to grow up in. Inability to be a proper mum is something I worry about very much for my little one. My sister has spent her life surrounded by friends. I got some clues from others' mothers when visiting, and left ...

My NT sister remained very unhappy that our AS mother never did some standard motherly things If you don't mind me asking, what sort of things were they? We are kind of speculating here, but we are pretty sure that the mothers in movies who say "I love you" to their children are not based...

Do you think that male autistics are "more autistic" than the female ones? I think that the total amount of autism is mostly male, but can't be sure about maximum average severity. Ma Nature has a lot more trouble with female autism. The mother is needed to provide stability for her child...

No. I don't look at stills, either.

As a male, it's really hard sometimes to keep myself calm. That's the biggest problem Men are held to a much higher standard for remaining calm, because they are presumed dangerous. Boys also get less training in managing emotions - they are expected to just remain stunted. Once aroused, aspies hav...

I don't think Rainman was authentic. Who can go from an institutional life to wild adventures without at least a week to recover between them?

Inspired by Greta's Friday strike, today there were 3,000 demonstrators in Saskatoon, SK, ten times more than I have seen for similar events in over a decade there. In Montreal, there were 300,000. She certainly has struck a chord with the NTs. Here, we have usually had weather quite similar to tha...

I have been torqued into lying to protect a friend's minor mistake, but I've generally been more honest to my employers than they have been with me, except in cases where I've been jollied along into thinking something could get done fast and cheap. I understand that in general, the higher one goes ...

^^ About 30 years ago the World Bank issued a thousand-page report on "Transportation in China" without using the word "bicycle." China is at least getting serious about solar power, and recently stopped a major logging operation overnight for ecological reasons, after years of a...

I think that we are very lucky that Greta grew up seeing her parents perform in public regularly. That helped her develop a rare talent for a nerd who got into a climate special interest.

What do you think of my belief that fossil fuel vehicles and such are being replaced by 21st century tech anyways? My great-great grandfather drove a combustion engine car. They are outdated. That is certainly happening, but it is nowhere near adequate. We are still used to the biggest, most wastef...

When I was 12, I saw the famous Banff glacier and it's meltwater pond, Lake Louise, overlooked by a fine, stone-built railway hotel. At the time, nobody had ever heard of a glacier retreating steadily. Now, guests get a view of a rubble slope, and a distant bit of ice. The news is similar all over. ...

One time I was woken by someone moving around near my room, but I stayed in sleep paralysis for a long time. I didn't feel right all that day or the next. It was like being "locked in." I was reading up on hallucinations for an elderly friend, and learned that with partial eyesight, the br...
