But seriously? There is no point. Cohabitation is the same thing but without an expensive party and a legal contract - because, of course, at the heart of all healthy relationships, there is a legal contract :roll: If you meet and marry the right person, you'll understand that there is a point.

I rarely drink and when I do, I'm either at home or out camping. I use alcohol to reduce my symptoms - it generally quiets the voices in my head and seems to desensitize my skin.

EVERY time I come back from vacation, Jonathan has the nerve to bother me. The man is much older than me and is an NT. A bigot also. He had to nerve to tell me over the spring how maybe my company should find someone else who doesn't have aspergers. Before you go to HR, I think you should identify ...

I co-founded my company and I think that my mind and my partner's work differently enough that we compliment one another.

Tell the truth. If word has already reached management, it is unlikely your responses will affect the outcome.

Would an Aspie create anything social?


If you think about it - forums and sites like facebook reduce NTs ability to communicate in ways that are difficult for ASD. No "non-verbal" communication, for example.

The original 2003 show was written by Robert Smigel, who has a son with autism. I believe he and Jon are friends. I suspect the charity aspect of the show is based on Robert's preferences to where the money should go.

What is it with you guys and your "Microsoft wants xxx to be illegal" threads? Is there some unwritten rule on WrongPlanet that there has to be a new thread like this every week? The subject is incredibly inaccurate - even if MS were to win the patent argument, the judge wouldn't force Motorolla to ...

Do you know for a fact that it came from your Hotmail account? Anyone can forge the "From" address on email, so they could be sending it from somewhere else with your address in the "from" field. There's really nothing you can do to stop that.

First thats not what I'm arguing about I'm arguing he should show it to at least attempt to satisfy their doubts. Refer to my earlier post. They will never be satisfied. Therefore producing the original birth certificate is a waste of time. Wasting the president's time is like a large waste of taxp...

Women are worth next to nothing. ? :roll: He's a spammer troll. Just ignore it and maybe it'll go away. My wife and I used a planner but we kept it small - 25 people. We didn't feel the need to follow a lot of the wedding traditions - short service followed by a meal and that was it. It was still a...

what are you talking about i have no way of proving whether or not something should be trusted only an idiot would try. I'm just pointing out that not everyone is satisfied and they have their reasons. If Obama were to reveal his personal copy of his birth certificate, these individuals would no do...

I did not say there is no real reason he should not claim to be qualified i said there is no real reason he should not have to confirm he is qualified. And I said the confirmation should come from an independant source such as the government. The real reason is conflict of interest. You chose to ig...
