I do this all the time and it sometimes keeps me up at night. To get rid of them and try and ignore them I do things like: put my head in a pillow and scream, splash cold water on my face, slap my face and also close my eyes and make a mental image of my brain being swept with a brush so the bad tho...

The Neanderthal theory should be scrapped. Autism is no more common among northern europeans than in any other race. Clearly, it has nothing to do with Neanderthals.

I'm living somewhere (in Australia, NSW) over Christmas for a little less than a month. What kind of jobs offer very temporary work for short periods like this?

Yeah, it's just a coincidence that the two worst school shootings in the last decade (or whatever), that involved body counts in the dozens, were perpetrated by people who, for all appearances, fit the profile of Asperger's perfectly? This isn't a clinical diagnosis. It's like when people on this f...

I chose the DP67BA because of its media features and it is made to work best with an i7 False. It has no special media features any other new board would have - in fact, if you're using a 3rd-generation i7, you'll get more out of the 3rd-generation chipset that came out at the same time. It's it's ...

This might be a bit outdated but Im just wondering(and someone I know in real life brought up a good point) how come a hallmark trait of Aspergers people is having a VERY high IQ? Is it? From what I've read the average is only slightly higher than the default IQ average of 100. Also, a diagnosis is...

I just want to repeat what others have said, lol.. Problem 1. Notepad by default saves files with ".txt" at the end.
