Just my opinion here, but I think that might go into the thought that autism is not one thing, but an umbrella term for many conditions with similar symptoms. @ Skilpadde : Agreed and seconded. I'm of the same opinion. Autism is simply behavioral traits. An autism diagnosis doesn't require one to t...

are there any powerful people not purely motivated by self-interest and malice aforethought? are there any such folk who see such "iron rule" evil as anything other than mere "common sense"? Power doesnt corrupt people, people corrupt power. people wouldn't corrupt power unless ...

Based on the responses, I'm guessing no one here is actually using/has used the stuff. I'm considering it.

1. She was assuming the following things: a) Older men are more likely to rape b) Good looking men are less likely to rape c) Half asleep men are more likely to rape But why do those things have to be true? They’re not true. If you’re asking “Why do NT women behave that way instinctively and make t...

There happen to be people who are "low-educated" but are smarter than people with PhDs. If you are talking about emotional intelligence yes I believe it's important (although I still won't trade my PhD for that). But that's not what we are talking about here. What we talk about is someone...

Do you mean the Fifties hit by the McGuire Sisters: "Mr Sandman"? Or do you mean the Nineties Metallica hit "Enter Sandman"? I don't object to either myself Actually, the big 1950s radio hit version was recorded by The Chordettes. I don't know if the McGuire Sisters ever did a v...

She walked into the office and immediately assessed you as a weirdo. Everything thereafter was just nervous filler on her end to try to get out of the office, including the question about whether she was assigned there. She was scared and didn't know what to do. Perhaps you should have said somethin...

When i was a child in the 80s AIDS was going to destroy the world and you were made to believe the kid sitting next to you in class or your elderly gran might have it. There was a cure within 10-15 years! HIV / AIDS has never been cured. Better treatments, yes, but no cure. Matter of fact, I don't ...

He aint the greatest save in his own mind. Yes, that's true for many with godlike complexes. What other President believed he was God incarnate? The fact that you have to ask this makes me question your ability to read people. But this is a site for Aspies after all, so I can't be too judgmental.

Fashion as in what's "in" and trendy among women of the day? Or fashion as in "out there, cutting edge, idiosyncratic" stuff? I can see a subset of Aspie women being in the latter group. I think by the virtue of being Aspie, many of us aren't into --or even aware-- of what's &quo...

People criticize Trump for his arrogance, yet I love his honesty. He's certainly not the first president to believe that he's the Second Coming of Christ, but at least he doesn't pretend otherwise. It may be scummy, but at least the scumminess is out in the open. Perhaps many of you are quite ignora...

Apparently I have a talent for making other people feel cursed. WE have to live this hell everyday. I think others around us get a glimpse of it from being in our presence and it scares them, angers them, causes confusion...all because it's not something that they have to deal with normally . If th...

It's not like I have leprosy or something.....

To say that people with autism are "cursed" is hyperbole at best.


...Are you saying that if a person does have leprosy, they got that illness due to a curse?

Thanks for the replies. Perhaps I damaged it when switching it out from the old wallet. Funny, though, that I handled it the the way I always do, but it just so happens to get damaged at the same time I got a new wallet. Maybe the new wallet had a loose piece of thread or leather in the pouch that s...
