Co-ed magnet high school, that focused on foreign languages, military stuff and diplomacy.
It was weird. We learned foreign languages, a lot of history, diplomacy and cultural studies- and also warfare tactics and how to design military bases and weapons. There was also a 75% dropout rate.

I've dealt with someone like this, though she was a mentor, not a fellow class mate. If no one else seems bothered, I'd say ignore her. If you can't, just ask the teacher what they think about your conduct in class. They might be able to help you. But yeah, some people are spiteful just to be spite...

So, are the secret service the rest of the jury? That seems like it would simplify a few things.

It's sad about the deaths.
That said, it's kind of funny that the hurricane going farthest off course is called Ophelia.

No one out-crazies Ophelia.

I was diagnosed under DSM IV 6 years ago, so I don't know exactly.
But, given that people don't seem to beelive that I'm autistic, I'd say that I'm probably level 1:1.

Yeah, it was my favorite holiday as a kid. I loved trick or treating, and my mom always made mulled apple cider and gooey chocolate cookies. The costumes were always fun- we always made our own. Now, I have parties with my friends and we buy our own candy. The first we actually were in our backyard ...

Yes, I made a report to her and my school. She is no longer my mentor.
I've also begun doing work with other professors alongside my adviser, so that if she does try anything, I have the means to continue research and stay employed.

I'm in a slightly odd position, I suppose. I want to work as an aeronautical engineer and chemist. I am currently studying chemistry and engineering, and I apply for a job at NASA in a few days. That's both a safe option (employees at NASA have assured me that everyone there is on the spectrum), and...

This is just an update: Mentor had ordered me not contact one student in particular. I did anyway, and the student was a prior victim. We talked and compared stories- they were eerily similar. As far as we can tell- exactly the same behavior, same triggers and same patterns. As far as we can tell, t...

The headline makes it sound like a black mirror scenario. And bit reminiscent of Hannibal Lecture- the gifted doctor that ate people.The details seem a bit hazier. She was under the influence, and there is sufficient evidence that she is remorseful (though whether it's remorse over the personal cons...

Tricky question. You could theoretically replace Sec(X) with an equivalent trig value, and then use integration by parts. You would still get a long answer, but sec(x) makes everything a bit tricky. Replacing it could prevent some confusion later. As for why it's long, you would have to use integrat...

There is a level of support for the idea the disabled should be seperated from the rest of society in Australia as seen recently with the nationalist politician who said autistic students should be seperated from other students. That is probably true everywhere. I do not know if support for seperat...

Same thing for me- 95% coverage. The temperature dropped about 5 degrees (huge relief, seeing as it can still get around 100 degrees) and I got to get out of class.
