That actually makes sense. It's also worth noting that the ICD is a lot broader than the DSM is. The DSM is just for psychiatry and psychology and isn't necessarily intended for use outside the US. Which is another issue that has become more of an issue over time as the culture has continued to bro...

The job I'm currently working is the longest I've worked anywhere continuously. That's a little over 4 years. Although, I will be quitting in the near future as I've been treated extremely disrespectfully lately and key people in various departments are headed for the exits. I don't know for sure, b...

This morning, I joined an online presentation on how to get started as a child's book author. I've also seen similar seminars on becoming a digital nomad. They start out by reassuring the audience that everyone, including you, can become successful doing whatever they are selling. They show off a b...

I got a masters degree in special education. My plan was to teach in military schools abroad. Teaching in America has become so terrible it just isn't worth it otherwise. But they went and changed the process to get teacher certification. Now they have made it extremely convoluted and confusing, an...

I'm surprised it's being used at all in the US, but given how bad the DSM 5 coverage of various disorders was, an ICD version is likely to be adopted until and unless another home grown book is adopted. I'm not up enough to know when the ICD 11 came out, but it can take time for the necessary system...

Neither does Canada Post. How common is it for mail services to deliver on Sunday?

The USPS used to deliver 7 days a week and multiple times a day. It was possible in some cities to have a complete back and forth via email in one day.

Seinfeld was also a product of the post war New York Jewish scene. His point of view may seem alien if you're not somewhat familiar with that. For a long time, my best friend was a Jew from Brooklyn and I had a lot of exposure to that. But there was always going to be a lot of Americans who wouldn'...

Bill Maher is doing well centering his whole program around being "anti-woke".

You have to be over 35 to remember when Seinfeld went off the air. His audience is aging out of the demographics most advertisers want.

You also have to be over 30 to remember when Bill wasn't a sell out.

Sounds like the direction of travel is set. Sometimes you just have to do things incrementally so the more socially conservative people don't freak out. It's frustrating for more progressively minded people, but it's better to bring people along with you rather than try to force your progressivenes...

No. Nothing against autistics of course but they'd be pedantic, get hung up on tiny details, miss the big picture, have meltdowns, and disagree on everything because there'd be no hive mentality. They'd want everything a little too individuated which would cost a fortune in taxes. It's hard enough ...

Yeah, it's a hard balance between asking questions and not asking too many questions. I try to ask them about as many questions as they ask me but that's a lot easier said than done. It is, I tend to treat it like tennis, I ask a question, they answer it. They ask a question and I answer it. It's n...

People do that because they're not always sure if it's possible at all. I find that it's best to just answer the question and ask if they want it done, or if it's a question for future reference. At least that way, I've eliminated the extra mental work of trying to guess what they actually want, rat...

Dude, you really have a lot of ideas. Have you ever thought about writing a paper?
