we have some brainy people here, surely someone could figure it out, all we need is some solar batteries and some agregates or whatever they are called. Hell, if they're brainy enough, lets go for cold fusion. :) Or maybe vacume energy. I'll understand if we can't use a singularity for power howeve...

How is this taboo? taboo in WP community , just keep watching the replies and you'll get why it's taboo. I kept watching the replies and apart from one or two, all I saw were intelligent statements back up by verifiable facts, a few opinions (which were clearly labelled as such) and a few personal ...

I do at least. People have always been able to read me like an open book. Just because I can't read the body language, doesn't mean I'm not giving it off it seems. What does confuse people however, is that becuase I don't realise what my body language is saying it's fairly 'pure' and unaltered and h...

I play a number of online games myself. It's my down time from having to deal with people during the day. I can socialise with people who have similar interests (otherwise they wouldn't be playing the same game ^.^) without having to go through the stress of reading their body language. And it *is* ...

My interests jump and skip and often cycle back. For instance, I'm always interested in science fiction, and also in fantasy. I read books constantly (no matter how bad they are), but I will cycle through reading just fantasy, or just science fiction. Most of my interests are like that. I dedicate A...

"Stim" is short for stiumulation. Things like clicking pens, waving hands, rocking back and forth, even chewing on hair. Generally tends to relax. In my case I tend to stim by shifting my balance from one side to the other and rocking in place, or waving my hands around. I try to not do this in publ...

Does anyone on the forum dislike the sound of their own voice or am I just being my weird self? If I recall correctly the way you hear your voice is mainly vibrations transmitted through your jaw bone so it sounds much different to you compared to what other people actually hear. I personally disli...

I don't know what nihilistic is supposed to mean as a descriptive term for music. Most of the stuff people mention is music with a negative emotion. Negative isn’t necessarily nihilistic in my definition. I would imagine true nihilistic music would have no emotion at all, just random noise or somet...

Excellent post. From Bauhaus (one of my personal favourites), listen to "All we ever wanted" and "Burning from the inside" and behold. I would say some Smiths songs may balance on nihilism but I would disagree with them being nihilistic as a band. In the gothscene, Sopor Aeternus & the Ensemble...

Joy Division is fairly nihilistic. Late '70's band. With such tracks as "She's Lost Control", "Dead Souls", "Love Will Tear Us Apart" and a personal favourite "Sister Ray"... Bauhaus occationally has it's moments as well. Some of the Cure's darker tracks (such as one hundered years) would probably q...

I'm a nursing major and I've known my boyfriend had aspergers for 2 years. A couple days ago he actually looked into it and realized that he does have it. It's almost like his whole world has fallen apart, he doesn't know how to interpret the knowledge because he's 25 and for his whole life he was ...

The Wii in New Zealand came bundled with this. It is fun (and probably more exercise than I normally get) but did not hold my attention for long. It was however a lot more fun to play with someone else as I found out when a friend of mine came over and we drank a bit too much...

Game shows love to over-exaggerate things to make things entertaining for viewers. It artificially ups the drama factor which draws in people who get caught up in it all, including the contestants who are on edge to start with. That and I often think that they deliberatly gather some of the most ecc...

I don't tend to ramble much (anymore) but if a direct question is asked, I tend to answer it even if it was supposed to be rhetorical. This has led to several cases of people claiming "TMI! TMI!" and I've left it up to them to start asking appropriate questions. :twisted: Though when in a work envir...
