You know what needs to happen? A law needs to be passed that government contractors have to hire x% of aspies into their work force. The simplicity of it means that a company has a very hard time getting around it. :twisted:

Not really, but it does bother me that cousins and friends have a significant other, and I don't. I don't really resent it, so much as I feel sad that I don't have somebody. Maybe I am jealous, because I don't like the thought that cousins achieve something before I do, even though I am older than t...
