It is only when I go back and re-read my typin that I find them.

Does anyon else do this?

Things would break if there wasn't any tolerance, and things wouldn't work at all if there was too much - think moving machines. @harry12345, ooooo, I like that. Balance. Balance it is. If there was no tolerance between people then society would break down because we would be constantly at each oth...

Tolerance is just that - the ability to accomodate something that doesn't quite fit. Things would break if there wasn't any tolerance, and things wouldn't work at all if there was too much - think moving machines. Tolerances also change over time and can be affected by weather, pressure, temperature...

If by intolerant she means judgemental, then that is not the case for me. I am only intolerant to jerks, whether they're autistic, NT, or some other neurotype. How do you determine if someone's a jerk without being judgemental? For me I can make my own mind up if I think some one is a jerk. Being j...

I would cook the potatoes first for their full time. Then the veg for their full time. The potatoes would be left covered and when the veg have finished I'd give the potatoes an extra minute to warm through again. Saying that I'd probably buy tinned potatoes/veg and cook both in two pans of boiling ...

Anything that is likely to give me food poisoning is cooked for four hours.

At least that way I know I am safe.

@Dear_one [quote above - forum is throwing a wobbler again and won't let me quote and type message......] Do you have "Smart Motorways" in the USA? They are capable of having variable speed limits to ease conjestion. The idea is that it forces everyone to do a reduced speed and stops overt...

The day the 1st Gulf war broke, I switched from sporty driving up to 10% over the speed limit to super-economy driving at 10% under. It is actually more fun. I once drove a mile with the engine off, staying no more than a car length from where I'd have been under power. Now, I only drive the limit ...

There I am minding my own business doing exactly 70mph (satnav accurate) in the inside lane and someone comes screaming up the outside lane at 75mph. There is no one behind me, no one in front of me.... except the burke who has just gone past, who has pulled in front of me and is now doing precisely...

One tip I was given (and I have tried it and it works) was to write down bad things that have happened.

You don't have to keep the paper, and it doesn't have to be an essay.

The act of writing it down may purge it from you memory.

Y WELL... here's a way you can catch people by surprise: instead of asserting your condition directly, tell them "You know, apparently I'm alleged partially autistic, at least that's one some quack once told me - but I don't see it." Then see if they argue the reverse, that they do see th...

My current thoughts are verbal - a running commentary.

My memories tend to be a series of visual images.

I meant "ignoring bullying" more in the context where authority figures, or others in a position to do something about it, just sweep it under the rug. I am one who believes that, sometimes, the bullied should just ignore the insults of the bully. There are times when that gets rid of the...

Ignoring bullying----depending on your ability to do something about it----is "enabling bullying," and could even be a form of "bullying." The managers wouldn't do anything about the person I've mentioned (they were scared of him) so they ignored the bullying (from him). At one ...
