Jack Nicholson is notable for having a large forehead. I don't sense too much autism in him.

I'm pretty sure, without checking, that if you measure his forehead it'd turn out to be as large or small as pretty much every body elses

It's just silly, really. Of course you cannot determine that I'm autistic by my looks or the lengths of my fingers. For the record my ring fingers and index ones are pretty much the same length, it depends a bit on how i present my hands, but about the same. I share the proportions of eyes, ears, mo...

I wonder, do I look autistic? (My profile pic is me, albeit a younger version.)
And if so, how come I only got diagnosed at age 52?
I call BS on the whole idea, especially when facts about the face that are true for 99% of the population is stated to be signs of autism. It's simply not true.

That ratio is considered normal. It's taught in art school. Yup. I was taught it in 8th grade. Fun fact is that when the proportions seem to differ from that norm, it is usually an illusion. Hairstyle, facial hair, makeup, or just that the person tilts his/her head slightly up or down can make it s...

1. My oldest and possibly best friend, 500 km away, I've seen her IRL two times in the last 10 years. 2. A former GF, 500 km away, I've seen her once in the last 10 years. 3. A former GF, 300 km road plus 200 km ferry away, I've seen her once in the last 10 years. It just takes too long to travel, a...

So this woman at work is practicing driving with her husband to get her licence, and isn't all that satisfied with how it works out. So I offered to, if we were going at least roughly in the same direction, I could let her practice with me and my car. I had no intentions except being friendly and he...

I've used vinegar succesfully to get rid of bad smell in shoes and to clean off mold on felt in board game boxes.
The vinegar smell went away after about two days, I'd guess that it will go away faster if left outside/in the sun.

In this day and age with a camera, internet and phone calls at the grab of a hand, genocides won't go unnoticed for long. A genocide the scale of the Holocaust will probably never happen again. If anything did happen in the future to people with disabilities, it'll probably be in the form of a much...

Well, since Aspegers is no longer a diagnosis, I don't really see your point.

Generally, we hang paintings and such at the height of our eyes either when we're sitting or standing up. With a low horizon we can hang them a bit higher and vice versa. I was thinking of extremes, like hanging paintings a couple of inches above the floor or really high up, or even hanging them on ...

Me and my BFF made up a long story ages ago about money genetics. It was basically that coins dropped on the sideways would grow up to become ATM machines, and dropped bills would grow up to be credit cards. The mating process is obvious. I don't remember if we figured out why all the offspring are ...

There's all kinds of weird with TCM, some aspects not strictly part of TCM, but rather cultural, however in practice they are very much a part of it. For example Eating animals close to extinction is good for your health. Drinking alcohol with snakes in it is good for your sexual abilities. Eating p...

I've never had problems looking into peoples eyes. But I've realized that I tend to look too much, too intensly. Some get the impression that I'm staring at them.
