We should also be aware that our kind usually doesn't make any statements about anything we haven't researched, unlike NT people. When we don't know, we don't claim we do, which is why we're usually right when we do say something. It's sad that not taking part in this social process with the less sc...

That's very annoying.. Ear plugs are quite effective and cheap though, can use those.

I've experienced that problem too. People don't care much for reason or that someone has proven to be very knowledgable in general, they still let answers develop through a social process you can find in all primitive societies - what matters is someone's place in the social hierarchy, people assimi...

I'm quite fascinated by this nature's display of power, I usually go outside and watch them if I'm able to.

Well, since my post in a thread in the arts section probably won't get that much attention and it's an interesting subject even if you're not much of a writer yourself, I'll make another post about it here: I've been pondering whether the classical author John Milton was an Aspergian. Biographies sa...

Lots of people leave out the comma. They mean to write "Let's eat, Sally" but write "Let's eat Sally" instead, which means they want to eat Sally, Sally becomes an object.

Yep, the comma turns the person from an object into the target of the sentence.

I've been pondering whether the classical author John Milton was an Aspergian. Biographies say he spent his childhood almost exclusively reading books from noon until midnight, and he never got along very well with his surroundings. He did eventually get a family, but they rebelled against him, some...

I love that band. My favourite songs are "Kings of metal" and "Fighting the world".

- "Do you like all animals?" - "No dogs" See the problem leaving out the comma? Might not be the best example there is, but I don't want to jump anyone by quoting them. Leaving out the comma in a response like that gives the line the opposite meaning, it goes from saying "no" to the question to "no"...

I've found myself collecting computer games and some other software and storing it on CD's, thinking I'd find use for the stuff, but I probably end up only using a third of what I collect. Movies also of course, and haven't watched all of those either, it often feels like I'm not in the mood to watc...

I find myself having to take almost daily naps. In the past, I used to attribute that to physical strain, but now I've realized it comes from social interaction and dealing with emotions. It always struck me as funny how much more tiring it was walking through town than taking a stroll through the f...

I apparently authored some magazines before I enrolled in school and learned to read there, partially with an alphabet of my own. I've got to see if that stuff is still around somewhere.
