Actually, I find pushing against something or sitting in a position that most people would find awkward or strange can help with stopping.

Even normal people twitch their legs, though.

But, yeah I think that's called 'stims.'
It's hard to stay still. I think it bothers people. XP

When you say you lost 80 lbs., could you afford to lose 80 lbs.? Are you in a healthy weight range now? Yeah, I'm in a healthy weight range... Also, I do get some food stamps. Also, thanks BigBadBrad. I don't think my school has a clinic, but they do have disability support & services. I think ...

I think if you are over 18 or something, you don't have to include your parents' info in your financial aid application. Have you considered FAFSA? Google it on the web. You don't have to include your parents here. You can apply right online as well. It's what I did and I've never regretted it. Amb...

I don't believe that's a very serious question.
In fact, this whole thread is a troll thread.

Yes, I have seen it.
It bothers me, though, when someone posts a pic that is obviously made to look as good as possible.
It should be a more natural photo.

Before running around asking if you are an aspie, you should read about what Asperger's Syndrome is in detail and if every point you read, you are like, "that's me!" then you'll know. Otherwise, I'll say you're probably not.

Is it true that guys like this show as well?

If so why?

I heard a theory that the guys who like it are secretly attracted to ponies, and this is a route for them to feed their hidden desires.

Guess I could have it much worse, and I am just a whiny immature loser...
And I guess I'm just lazy since I can't help myself.

I'm currently attending my 3rd year of college, and having finances to survive has been a major issue from the start. I find that on any given day, I don't eat lunch, simply so I can save that money to pay my rent and bills. (I'm in an apartment with three others, and we split the rent and bills eve...

Most Lifetime movies have some type of "the man did something bad" theme.

Occasionally there's a "the woman did something bad" theme though.

What about "the man did something bad and the woman did something bad, and they're both keeping it a secret from each other"?

For some people, they may have friended you on Facebook, but it doesn't necessarily mean they're okay with you commenting on stuff they post. Like, it seems awkward if you do it. So, they'll unfriend you, because they don't want you to comment on anything else. Something like that. Don't take it per...

Yeah, I always thought the Japanese culture was very easy to get along with. Also, the religion they study (namely Buddhism or Shintoism) I think is a little geared towards the aspie way-of-thinking in some sense. As in, it abstracts things from personal interactions and instead focuses on reasons a...

It seems like a pretty typical thing for someone to do in order to be mean to someone else. One thing NT's have going for them is they'd know the person was just being rude, so they'd think nothing of it and just forget about it the next moment. It's better to do that, because then you don't let it ...

Even when I can spot a lie I still have a problem because I have no idea how or if to confront someone about it. I think if someone is lying, it does no good to confront them, because you'll just make it worse. They won't admit they're lying, and will probably just get angry with you. (If someone i...
