I would definitely have to say the cold is my favorite. (And I really loved Alaska, by the way.) I *hate* hot weather, because it will instantly start wearing me down... and apparently, a lot of others don't like hot weather either! I wonder if we're supposed to be in cold weather? :-) This is serio...

Hmm... this is interesting. I eat sandwiches or stuff that's somehow got bread around it, like a hot dog, hamburger, or taco, on weekdays, and pizza on Fridays. I usually eat things going clockwise if I can, but otherwise, I'm not too awful fussy about stuff... so that's all I've got to say here! :-)

When I read of the stories of geeks... I really begin to think I fit these stories. :-) I can work on something until 2 or 3 in the morning on a project, not shower for two days, then end up showering when it's all done. But otherwise, outside that, I hate being dirty or anything that I have being d...

Well... here's what I know. I can (and do) count things to a certain limit, and like simple algebra. But I hate geometry, and nearly failed it in high school. So, if there is much left-brained-ness there in me, I don't think I have much of it. I personally think I'm right-brained, because while I ca...

I'm not sure why light blankets are hard to use for you -- I know I've read several articles on the subject that suggest some people with ASDs sleep better with a weighted blanket. So it's probably a sensory issue. Now, personally, I'm the opposite! So I don't quite understand the blankets issue exc...

Hmm... this is a good question! And I'm honestly surprised to see I'm not the only one who's not crazy over games! However, yes, I have played a few. With that said, I have played several games in my life, but most people are shocked to find out that I haven't played that many or the "popular" ones!...

I think that it is seriously not good... I'd say a curse. It's basically not knowing who you are, what the world truly is, etc. But the good in it is thinking differently. Overall, it can't be a blessing, and I don't think it is. But it is possible to live on, become better at things, and be everyth...

Thanks for replying. I'm still kind of curious, though — do you think this is just a personality thing, then, or an ASD trait?

It's getting hurtful and frustrating. Several people in my family do not understand me at all. I have tried talking to them, but they do not see "me" as being who I am when I'm at home or when I go places. Let me explain this best I can. I'm calm at home in front of my notebook computer, programming...

Well, with me, it's not one voice only. First, there's myself--I hate when when I do stupid stuff, even if it's minor, like not lining something up correctly, or I'm telling myself how many street lamps, etc. are there, or why something should work a certain way. Sometimes I love this, because it's ...

Yes, but I think you have the defintion wrong, too.... :( But I am pretty sure that the OP meant hacking to mean the invasion-of-privacy sort of thing that's illegal and unethical to do. Just to reclarify, what you just described is cracking, not hacking! Here's a link to a page in the jargon file t...

I'm asking this out of curiousity because I've seen a lot of things on music... but not this one exactly. How do you prefer to listen to music? Do you like to play one song constantly, an album constantly, or do you prefer to use shuffle or listen normally? I thought I'd start this just to get an id...

Curiosity *is* hacking, or rather "playful cleverness". If there's a new way to do something that someone discovers or does something so they and others can have fun with it, for example, that is a hack. A clearer example would be if a computer originally wasn't designed to play music but was only m...

Anyone got any advice on how to survive Christmas break? Sort of. I'm not sure if this will work for you, because it's just based on personal experience and my opinion... I currently share a room, and at first, it did drive me crazy, until I understood things had to be that way for now. Sometimes, ...

Well, to be honest, I never really was loud in the library, as long as there were Macintoshes around or fascinating stuff to read. But I found that Wikipedia is a *great* alternative to a library, as I discovered back when I back was I was in ninth grade, and from there, that's where I've gathered a...
