Since when did gambling and casinos become a General Autism topic?

PS: Nearly all the casino threads on WP have been infested with and promoted by spammers.

I think CyberDad was referring to the actor Paul Hogan of "Crocodile Dundee" fame, not P J Hogan.

In 2018 it was great to see that the first and second places in the final of Britains Got Talent were won by "disabled" entrants, Lost Voice Guy took out the big prize, while autist stand up comedian Robert White came in second. Both are worth a watch, here is a You Tube link to Robert Whi...

I am glad that you are here now and reaching out. Welcome to Wrong Planet.

You sound pretty broken at the moment and if you wish I can shift this thread to The Haven.

Sending you best wishes for better times ahead.

Masking is when the real you doesn't dare to engage as your self. Its when you send a constructed pretend self to attend as your proxy at work/social events/encounters/appointments/anything that involves others whom you do not absolutely know and trust 100% to accept and understand the authentic you...

I worked as a book reviewer for a national newpaper reviewing mainly fiction for 3 years, and have worked as a publisher's reader and publishing editor in my later years. No TOM issues at all ever affected my work, and no-one I worked for had any problem with the quality of my work. So the suggestio...

The "psychological infection" effect of this virus appears to be infecting people on an unprecedented scale. I wish the focus was more centred on preventative strategies. Instead the psychogical infection seems to be exponentially spreading.

Drive through centres for people with symptoms are being suggested here as a containment measure. Sort of like medical teams in hazmat suits, attending to drive-by symptom reporters, protected from cross infection and from spreading it to others, which is a risk in conventional medical centres, doct...

If it was just political banter, why did they single out a female target, and ignore men who are equally committed to protecting the planet? (like the forementioned David Attenborough). Would they dare to sexually harass (straight?) men in this repulsive way? It's Greta they targeted, and not just b...

Yes, that's like an insurance policy to maintain the benefit you get from it.

It seems that to use any benzo safely you need to vary the dose, take breaks from it, and stay away from high doses over short or long periods. Low dose Clonazepam (.5 mg) worked very well for me as long as I didn't take it everyday. If you take it everyday even at a low level for a long long time t...

No doubt sanitation etc was one reason, though I think the historical issues impacting on people at that time were rather more complex than that.

War does have a way of shortening lifespan, and the impact of World War 1 on life expectancy didn't stop in 1918 when the "Spanish Flu" began, in the filth of the trenches of the Western Front. We live in very different times and conditions now. The outbreaks of the polio virus in the 1930...

I watch the panic response over the Covid virus from a different perspective to most people, it seems. I haven't done anything differently because of it. Being old and immune compromised with a susceptibility to respiratory infections, (I was born with immune dysfunction and it gets weaker with age)...
