What those guys are telling you, is to keep approaching the coffee machine, push all the buttons at random if you have to, so that eventually you might learn how to get some damn coffee out of it. Isn't that a bit like constantly bashing somebody else's head agin a brick wall in case someday they c...

Ah, but I think there's some point to what those guys are telling you, Daniel. The fact is, NTs *do* enjoy social gatherings, therefore it's actually possible to enjoy them; it's just a question of finding out what NTs do, what frame of mind they set themselves in, what do they think (and what do th...

I consider myself an undiagnosed aspie... I match easily over 90% of the symptoms, involuntary rudeness being the only relevant exception (that I'm aware of). I don't seek being diagnosed basically for the same reasons explained by others: I'm strongly sceptical that a professional diagnosis would b...

When that happens to me (not about music, which I listen and like quite a bit), I simply wait in silence until the conversation shifts to a more interesting matter to me. For some forms of social gathering that may make me look awkward or shy, but I certainly prefer that to talking about things I do...

I'm not into anime! I'm not a chick either though . . . Then why respond? Why not? He was answering Cyberman's comment, just as I'm now answering yours... can't see anything wrong about that.

Probably the most significant issue I have with WP -or any other forum, for that matter- is that I virtually never present myself to the community when I join it, nor do I participate in greeting other newcomers. I don't actually resent others doing it, but I can barely relate to, or understand, the...

I also tend to feel somewhat odd saying “thanks”, but I do it anyway. It's one of those social conventions that I can't bring myself to disregard, probably because (unlike many aspies, apparently) I have a rather low tolerance towards rudeness.

Maybe because, despite appearances and/or individual perceptions, it can't possibly be any simpler.

Clairvoyance and levitation, I guess.

In fact, I think I'd settle with clairvoyance alone, although being able to fly as well would be kind of an enormous commodity, as well as enjoyable in itself.

This movie (or its making) is starting to seriously puzzle me. On one hand, they're obviously making quite an effort to replicate some of the manga's characteristics, from Shenron itself to Gokuh's weird hairdo, and even some clearly unimportat secondary characters, such as Mai; but these are all re...

Nothing else comes to mind now, MLH; the way you describe it, you're both off to a great start already. Nothing beats the enthusiasm to learn which you seemingly have :wtg:

I tend to be quite polite (even when confrontational), and I like finding interesting or useful things even in the most pointless or useless contexts.

A couple times, with power plugs or raw wires, when I was a child (I am far too careful now). Pissed the hell out of me.
