I was just wondering how to the men with aspergers/ high-functioning autism deal with it? I felt this way since I was a little kid and I'm 22 now. I used to be too nervous to talk to girls but now I don't care about asking women out. Some women do seem interested in me but ALL of them eventually ch...

Yes. I remember one forum I used to post on that would be down for maintenance a lot. During the SOPA protests when websites were going down for the day, someone jokingly asked, "In honor of the protests, will these boards be down for the whole day? Or just the usual 93% of the day?" Yeah, it's pret...

Did anyone else have this problem? Like, in sociology you learn about taboos vs. folkways, and things like that. I feel like since we tend to take things literally, it's hard for me to tell the difference between mildly inappropriate norms, and more severely inappropriate norms. Like, I couldn't rea...

Carl was an example of one kid with AS, and personally, I thought it was pretty similar to me at that age. I didn't think it was over pronounced at all. I used to get annoyed at characters like Abed from Community who just so naturally converses with people but is a little quirky, because that's not...

If that was addressed to me, I just made that list to poke fun at the over-diagnoses that occurred in both that thread and this one. If you look at my list knowing that, it makes a lot more sense. The only ones I think have more than a couple of traits are Bob Dylan, Fiona Apple, and Taylor Swift, b...

When I am going out in public I need to create a character for myself in order to interact. I think "for this store trip I will be friendly and approachable" or "I will be more confident seeming and smiley" or any number of things. If I do not think about this first, and get into my "acting mode" I...

Cyndi Lauper. I'm watching the US Apprentice Season 9 at the moment and she's just awesome, but the other's are having problems dealing with her monologuing and off the wall questions. They like her, but find she doens't communicate the same way they do. She's coming over as a really interesting an...

This seems bad, but I hope it's Max's suicide. I feel like that could be beautifully done, and could send an important message.

For as long as I can remember, even from ages 4 to 6, I remember just naturally feeling out of place, like I wasn't worth as much as other people. I find it fascinating how other people are just naturally well liked, or naturally confident, and even as young as I can remember, I had always assumed I...
