I find that injustice is one of the things that I find hardest to accept. Both social injustice in the world and petty injustice in my own life. And by hard to accept, I mean that I can't get over it, it just gnaws at me. And it makes me angry that people are generally so indifferent to it. That's ...

This sounds to me like he needs to feel like he's the "leader," and thus will target whoever he sees as the competition. Does he do this to everyone equally or is it mostly just you? If the latter, be very afraid; it's almost certain that you have been singled out for a social attack. His next move,...

someone told me i look attractive, but i would only get 3/10 because my attitude of stubborness and quarrelsomeness takes away 7 from 10. does this make you really unattractive even though you're pretty? no wonder why i've never had a boyfriend before of any kind. A person who'd say such an ugly th...

(I mean the one you sign checks with, not your sig line. :lol: ) Signatures are accepted as validly legally binding in part because they're unique and distinctive. Even when a person's cursive writing still looks nice and regular enough to be a text font, their signature will be some wild scrawl the...

I walked around the whole border without falling off , while humming happy songs. :D I'm 50 and still like to ride shopping carts across the parking lot. I'm 44 and I do both of these things... actually, I prefer someone to push me on the cart (my husband is willing to do it, bless him). I rock whe...

Hi there. I was curious if anyone else finds themselves listening to the same music over and over again. I've been listening to the same song for about 12-13 hours straight today. No joke. Ok fine, I took a couple small breaks to get food and such but no longer than 30 minutes combined. I'm assumin...

Are there aspies out there who have many topic of interests? Is it uncommon for someone with aspergers to have no real in depth information about their topic of information. There are lots of things I'm interested in, but only up to a certain level. For example, I love science, watch science shows,...

LOL!! I prefer to socialize over the phone, so that I can keep working on my computer with the occasional "uh-huh" until they run out of updates on their aunt's allergies and their neighbor's dog's flu and I can say something about MY life or some more interesting topic. You're right, they're so sur...

I'm usually twiddling or twirling something unless my hands are fully occupied, and I rock to calm down (although not in front of people). I'm a very tense person, and if I couldn't dissipate stress with these behaviors I'd lose my mind. :wall:

I have horrible depth perception, which made things like parking or even changing lanes a nightmare; I haven't driven in years. I remember once being stopped at a light such that there was the exit out of a parking lot directly in front of me. A car came to the exit, and it looked to me as if he dro...

I've always hated yellow. My mother did my room yellow, although I begged her to use any other color, for my entire childhood. Her excuse for that now is that when she showed someone my room they always said how bright and sunny it was. I pointed out that that does NOT mean they liked or were impres...

I have no sense of direction at all. I've lived in this city for over 30 years and I can literally count the # of places I could find my way to without assistance on the fingers of one hand. I don't recognize streets or landmarks, and can't memorize a list of right and left turns to save my life. Ho...

I have to fake constantly, because I DON'T CARE about most of the things that people want to talk to me about. Unless they got a promotion, big raise or were fired, I have zero interest in hearing anything about their work. I have zero interest in the doings of people I don't know well, whether or n...

Views: 2,788 might be nice to be more weird because then people wouldn't expect you to be normal all the time. Because I can sometimes pass for normal, I'm expected to be normal all the time.

I'm horrible with names, not just of people I meet but characters in a book, a movie, anything. You don't need to use a person's name to talk to them, though, so I just carry on like always whether I remember their name or not. I'm somewhat bad with faces too (this can be problematic in period movie...
