Everyone who's ever used a computer is an Aspie. Aspies can learn to be functional. I'd say it's more a case of the NTs needing to learn to be functional, or getting the Aspies to help them do it. After all, we're in a world run by technology. And yet... and yet. The intelligent and gifted engineer...

It seems to me that whether or not to commit suicide should be a soldier’s personal decision. And then, if an eighteen or nineteen-year-old is defending a position with a weapon, how would an enemy know that this person has important information? And wouldn’t the really important thing to be able t...

I have patchy social skills, and sometimes I feel I perceive social dynamics very clearly, other times not so much. Okay, that said, the following is simply an idea on my part, Do you think because it was such a huge deal your former colleagues foreclosed early, and didn't really try for better alt...

. . . One particular time that I almost died really bothers me. I can't go into too much detail, but I was at work doing my thing (where death was a daily possibility) and the tables kind of turned; in order to stop me from being able to give out very sensitive information during a possible interro...

I'd have to say that for the most part, no I'm not afraid of death. I've been shot at too many times to remember, stabbed, blown up a few times, had some guy hold a grenade to my head during an incident once, and strangled until my heart stopped. There are a few other times where I've come close to ...

Tracker, Thanks for all the great feedback. I'll have to read through it again, but I agree about knowledge will help my son deal better with different situations he encounters. I was pondering on how to handle the information with the colleges. Commuting to college for the first couple of years mi...

Hello, Does anyone have any recommendations on the best approach to convey diagnosis on Asperber's? I want to make sure he doesn't get discouraged, and disengage with school, friends or family. Should I wait for the weekend or during winter break? I was considering trying to speak to him in person,...

Actually, if you read my posts, you will see "Redacted information does not prevent against situational analysis - essentially reverse engineering the situation in an effort to identify individuals concerned. Assange is not an intelligence analyst. Manning was the lowest level intel analyst. As in,...

Fixer: Are you denying that those were Reuter's journalists? Their corpses were identified. Literally no one disputes that they were journalists. For the record, I don't really blame the soldiers who were involved in that incident. It appeared to them that they were looking at insurgents. It was an...

+100 for free speech. The information should be in the public domain, especially if the government isn't smart enough to keep it secret. As for the guy who got caught? He is royally screwed . OK, let's go with 'The information should be in the public domain' theory. Post your bank account details, ...

I know precisely what I am talking about. I've seen that video. And even your own source acknowledges that those were civilians, including journalists, who were killed. You have to be mildly crazy to dispute that. It amazes me (although I should be used to it by now) how many idiots have a slant on...

I'm amazed at how many people think this guy is a 'good guy'. I generally think transparency in government is a good thing. Uncontrolled leaks like Assange is doing are not the optimal way to reach that goal, but it is the only option since the government will not allow itself to be held accountabl...
