I'd like to bring to people's attention a book which has inspired two films called 'The Flight Of The Phoenix'. The main character in the book, a young aircraft engineer appears to have many of the signs of Asperger's Syndrome. He is quiet, keeps to himself and is quite obsessive. I am reading the b...

I was very quiet, shy and a loner. I kept to myself and didn't mix with others much at all. They were just not on my wavelength and in most cases regarded themselves as superior to myself. I was teased and bullied a lot and I've always thought my best day at school was my last day :!: :lol:

Around the middle of 2000 I found out about Asperger's in a newspaper article. From there I did a substantial amount of research about it in my local library. I discovered that I had a lot of signs of Asperger's and found that I probably had 85-90% of the criteria. My mum made an appointment with a ...

I've just purchased an 19" LCD to use for my new computer which I will be getting soon. It was on display in the shop and it looked pretty good, nice and compact and has a decent picture. As for dead pixels I believe the warranty allows you to take it back if it has a certain amount of dead pixels.

Neo-conservatives like Wolfowitz and Rice are destroying the world. These people now see the election result as vindication of their philosphies and policies. I really fear for the future of this world now that they are back in power again! :x As for Bill Clinton, I think he did a great job as Presi...

Same here! I live in Australia and I'm afraid I've completely lost faith in democracy and the human race! :cry: :evil:

I'm absolutely shocked and very angry by the re-election of the lunatic George W. Bush. I'm in agreement with others, it's an extremely sad day for the whole world!! ! 8O :twisted: _________________________________________________ "I'm as mad as hell and I am not going to take it anymore!" - Peter F...

My personal favorite games are mostly real time strategy and sporting simulations. Age of Empires 2, Age Of Mythology, Sim City 4 and Microsoft Links 2003 are among my favourites.

The need for a uniform voting system in all fifty states is quite clear. Having electronic voting, paper ballots and other different methods of casting your vote, there is little wonder confusion and chaos reign. One of the tasks confronting the new Congress should be to fix up the mess with voting ...

In response to Let's Go Blues question in another topic, I'll respond to his question in the relevant forum. Bush's policies have been a disaster and only John Kerry can clean the mess up. Osama Bin Laden was responsible for the September 11th tragedy not Saddam Hussein. The latest video from Bin La...

I have the occasional beer, maybe one or two a week at best. I enjoy the local Australian beers and imported Irish beer. If John Kerry wins the election on Tuesday, I'll probably treat myself to a couple of celebratory beers. However I do encourage people to drink sensibly and in moderation, as I ha...

I'm optimistic that Kerry will defeat Bush. He performed extremely well in the debates and has run a pretty good campaign after he appeared to be going badly in late September. Another site I looked at has Bush in front in the electoral college, but the posters appear to be Republican partisans. I p...

The Day After Tomorrow was very far fetched as the conditions shown in the movie would take many hundreds of years to take place. The events in the movie happened virtually overnight. The special effects were terrific though and there were a couple of funny bits, especially with the American people ...
