I've been fortunate to have "lived life" a bit. I know, if I'm in a bad situation, that I could rely on my books. When I was younger, the stress of working one full-time job caused me to take to my bed, for the most part, on the weekends. I was never a social person; I became even less so in my 20's...

Hi Squid, You seem like a pretty bright guy. You're also pretty psychologically sophisticated. I'm sorry you have to work all those hours just to make ends meet. Has the Squid a college degree? I know it's difficult to go on interviews when you are so occupied--but maybe we could come up with some k...

Potentially being kicked out of apartment with nowhere to go is quite stressful, even for the most NT of NT's. And the comic book store! Man-o-man...it's like the grocery store burning down for a housewife. I guess Leonard is trying to have Sheldon deflect his emotions somewher else, so Sheldon does...

Don't date him. He has another girl. Too much trouble.

I was 4 feet tall at age 8, 4 foot 9 at 13. Grew to 5 foot 4 3/4.

Always looked younger than my age.

You should read some of the poetry in the Arts Subforum (I forgot the exact name of the forum). John Keats, perhaps, could retrospectively be diagnosed as one with Asperger's. I wouldn't be surprised if William Blake filled the bill as well. Some of the Romantic poets (like Keats), it seemed to me, ...

I compliment you on your choice of an avatar--reminds me of a cozy cottage.

You're pretty down-to-earth as well.

I don't think it should be politicized.

I don't know what you're driving at. How would complimenting acquaintances lead to a sexual-harassment lawsuit? As I stated before, I don't randomly go up to women to offer compliments. I would be shy, flabbergasted, etc. should a woman come up to me with compliments (it hasn't happened)--but I woul...

You seem all right--just a jokester, like I am sometimes.

Who am I: how is the weather where you are? We're getting rather heavy thunderstorms here in New York City.

You better believe it's wrong! The nature of playing games is attempting to win--with good sportsmanship, of course. I would never play a game where there is no score. I don't just play softball for the mere enjoyment of it; I play because I want to win. I don't play it too well--but that's another ...

People with Asperger's run the gamut. Some of the greatest poets, some of the greatest engineers, some of the greatest scientists could be "retrospectively" diagnosed with Asperger's, or are actually diagnosed with it. Asperger's as a diagnostic entity really didn't take hold until around 1994. I, m...

Unfortunately, my mother has very little memory of what I was like as a baby.

As a toddler, I was an Autistic Terror. Screaming all night. Knocking items off supermarket shelves. Screaming in the library. Breaking stuff.

Aristophanes was a great Greek (Athenian?) playwright. He wrote "Lysistrata," right? A classic!! !! ! Actually, a Feminist classic, in a way.

I advocate Kumbaya as well! (I hated the song as a kid--but I realize its virtues at present).

I'll have to research the origins of that!
