Finally! I hope Bezos buys them and gives Elon a run for his money. We just might see a city on Mars and colonized floating space habs and post-scarcity space based solar in our lifetimes. Or not. We might blow up Earth before we figure it out or run out of resources and starve to death. Really hard...

Ain’t ADHD grand?

It feels strange to see the word special in a positive context.


Sometimes when someone tells I’m “special” I reply “I belong on the special bus”

It sounds like you got a new job? I remember when you were out of work, so congrats on that. Currently employed. I should count my blessings. My neurology is such that I am strong on IQ and and do good work for good pay. It is also like a fire hose that is hard or impossible to control at times so ...

Yeah - international forum. In USA middle school is loosely defined as 7th and 8th grade or 6th, 7th and 8th after elementary school (or “lower school”) and before high school. Kid are usually 5 in kindergarten so grade to age is “add 5”. Works out to 11 to 13 or 14. Basically “middle school” is “pu...

sounds like you're still doing pretty well at least compared to me. but i understand how expensive things are up north. Yeah, it's all relative to cost-of-living and the fact I'm supporting adult dependents. I don't make it from pay to pay. I get paid once a month and run out of money at the two we...

I voted “I control it” but would have voted “sometimes I control it and sometimes it controls me” if that had been an option. Maybe I should have picked that Icecream one.

Original Astronaut were mostly ex military flyers. Risk taking was part of the job. Rewards are high for the winners.

I have a book “The Wingmen: The Unlikely, Unusual Friendship Between John Glenn and Ted Williams”. It is a good read.

Different schools of thought on this. My take is to try and observe and instruct on the nonverbal “communication” of choices. If it is “I understand but this is what I want” that is one thing. If it is “I don’t understand so I am surprised by the reaction” that is something else. Once my son insiste...
