My twin brother has never drank a drop of alcohol (says it smells like solvent and drunk people are idiots, basically.), never smoked anything, or done any drugs besides absolutely necessary prescriptions. Ethanol is an organic solvent and is toxic. And it is delicious when mixed with quinine, bitt...

I got a special deal at a local university for $100 for a full evaluation, an evaluation that was spread out into once a week sessions of about 5 hours each for 3 months. Holy crap, that's a lot of assessment! Five hours per week over the course of twelve weeks...that's 60 hours! What kinds of thin...

Wow, they have no idea what they are talking about... Not making eye contact is not a sign of deception. A better signal for deception is eye contact with periodic glances away towards the preferred hand accompanied by a sudden increase in blinking. Despite that, such signalling is not universal. So...

So, maybe check the psychological centers of nearby colleges and universities.

I've noticed that many people on wrong planet do drink alcohol. Although, our difficulty putting ourselves in other peoples shows could result in those of us who don't drink being more vocally opposed to it and vice versa. It's more so the people getting drunk that I have a problem. It seems so cou...

This is something I have thought about as well. Although at this point in my life, I'm not necesarrily adverse to a "cure", I've come to accept that my personality has been defined and to take away my AS is to make me into a different person, a person that would have to look on the first ...

You could say that allism and other neurotypical spectrum condition can be a violent disorder but allistics would dismiss this as human nature but with autistic people, allistics blame autistic people. Also the notion of us having to 'know our place and failure to do so being labelled as an attitud...

http://www.seattletimes.com/nation-world/report-details-psychologists-role-in-cia-torture-program/ this seems very unsavory to me, and it diminishes my level of trust in members of the profession. It isn't the first time. Dr. Ewen Cameron worked for the CIA and later became the president of the APA...

What do you mean by "authority?" It is a word I've grown to dislike. "The exaltation of the creative will instills an indiscriminate contempt for authority."

What exactly would constitute a reason to secede...? I would say that it could include a diminishment of the reasons of the state joined the federal union in the first place. So, if joining provided the state with a sense that it and its citizens would be protected in their rights (under the Bill o...

What exactly would constitute a reason to secede? Having the state legislator held at gunpoint to ratify an amendment? That's how the 14th amendment got ratified in Tennessee and that amendment technically gives the president the right to say something along the lines of "the U.S. government wi...

Watching Seinfeld recently on tv, I noticed that I was getting stressed out by the process just as I always do. I do not think the show itself was the reason for that because I find pretty funny and I enjoyed it on its original run. Long ago I narrowed down what was pissing me off to commercials. I...

If my ancestors hadn't pioneered and settled in the the Appalachian Mountains in the 1600's, then they probably wouldn't have been forcibly removed from their land by Teddy Roosevelt and placed in coal mine towns where their pay barely covered food an rent that was monopolized by the coal company.
