I have to say, I fairly accurately fit into that category. May be a reason I look as young as I do, as they mentioned in the article. I'm 35, and I've been carded recently. I noticed that a lot of the Autistic females are tomboyish, while the males tend to be more delicate. Why are the gender roles ...

I don't like the idea of regular candles sitting unattended, but I do like special candles. When I was young, I had a candle at least a foot tall and 4" around that you burn down a couple inches on your birthday, which makes that number disappear and you wait for the next year. That was fun, I was f...

This is not counting slamming a door in anger, just going about a regular day. Just wondering how common this is. I find the sound and feel of the spring-loaded latch engaging to be very annoying. That, plus I feel I have less privacy, since others in the house can keep track of my coming and going ...

Please consider the privacy of the people whose stuff you're going through. I have SERIOUS issues about my things and people touching them. It sets me off, makes me paranoid, and has sent me to the hospital with episodes brought on by people messing with my stuff. I basically disowned my father beca...

Yes! This is really bringing me down right now. It's one thing when the interest is there but you can't get into it, but lately I've almost given up on trying to feel like myself anymore. That's the really depressing part.

I can't tell you how many times as a kid I heard, "Smile for the camera. Come on, smile!" I'm trying, damnit! I can also relate on smiling at inappropriate times. I was watching the news one morning getting ready for school, when I heard the news say something about a murder by where my friend lived...

I started going to raves in '98, and at that time the rave scene was radically inclusive and diverse. I always felt welcome, and never felt like I was being judged. I quickly got into DJing as a way that I could still participate without as much up close face to face time, being busy spinning record...

Fetishes that do involve another person can be even more complicated when you can't find someone you like who also shares your fetish. Particularly if your fetish is unusual. Yet another reason not to bother with relationships and stick to doing it myself. It makes standard dating almost impossible...

I thought GW1 sucked, mainly because it is instance based in most of the game. I guess it depends on what you're looking for in a game. You pretty much party up in a town or outpost, then go off and get your own instance for your quests and so forth. If you don't have a party, you can bring AI play...

That would be rough. I've had to take showers in an institutional setting with someone keeping an eye on me, I couldn't imagine twice daily.

I can understand not liking it, but I have to disagree with the assessment that it's simplistic in it's form, or that the composition is any more repetitive than any other genre of music. How is techno's beat-break-beat any different from verse-chorus-verse? Consider that you may not be attuned to t...

I end up not getting around to it, forgetting to do it, or falling into bad hygiene habits that I picked up from my father... but I'm working on it.

When I do, I usually soap up, rinse off, then plug the drain, sit in the tub, and let the shower run over my back for a while.

"The Reflex" - Duran Duran

I've even woken up in the middle of the night with this song in my head.

I basically only listen to underground House music and Techno. I've been DJing at underground warehouse, desert, and forest parties since '98, since then I listen to almost exclusively electronic. Before that it was Grateful Dead, ska/punk, west coast gangsta rap, and Miami breaks. I have a 1500 wat...

Oh, you might also check out Star Trek Online. You can download it free through Steam. A lot of the gamers in our clan have said good things about it.

I've met the best friend I've ever had, and many good, acquaintances online before meeting them in person. I talk on Skype with one of my friends 4-12 hours or so most days, so we chat just like if we were in the same room, not like email or whatever. Then, I play some games that have voice chat. Yo...
