I am frustrated because I just hate talking on the phone. No problem with texts or email, just communicating by phone. Anyone else and any advice? I try to make sure I know why I'm calling and for what purpose. Also know what message to leave if I can't just text if they don't answer. There's no sh...

^ World domination. Gee Dodo, what should we do tonight? The same thing we do every night Toto, plan to take over the world. Animaniacs was one of my favorite cartoons when I was a kid. The late 80s to sometime in the 90s was pretty much the best for quality tv animation. I've got the box set for i...

Ultimately, it's your decision, but if all the reasonable people leave we're basically left with a fitness forum for the uncoordinated.

I'm going with autism just because of the A in ASD. Plus, it's still an upgrade from schizoaffective and OCD when it comes to stigma. If you think autistic stereotyping is bad, the various schizo disorders are just about the worst when it comes to public perception. I might feel a bit differently if...

I think my cat is broken. He just keeps telling me that he's a cat. Yes, I know he's a cat, no need to rub it in.

I thought we weren't supposed to discuss banned members here? We're not, really. The guy irritated me by suggesting that autism should be cured in another thread he posted about Autism Speaks (which has now also been deleted apparently). I thought that he was just more misguided than an actual trol...

Violent Femmes have a few on offer. ^ Like a blister in the sun. I saw them in concert once. I think they were having a bad show, or perhaps Cake just that good. But, I still love the song and winded up being college roommates with somebody else in the crowd years later. Lately, it's been one of my...

Ask me if I care! I’ve been through enough verbal, emotional, physical and mental abuse in the nearly 66 years on this rock that I no longer care if anyone wants to talk to me! Dude, calm down. I think that this is a sarcastic response to another thread (now locked). I don't think it was meant seri...

I wish it were a left-wing version of 1/6. The right needs a taste of its own medicine. No you don't. It might be emotionally satisfying at first, but they'd go after the left 100x more aggressively than they go after right-wing terrorists (just like they always do). If 1/6 was leftists it would ha...

Do you find that you are "more autistic" when your overall mental health is worse? Do you find that manifestations of autism such as sensory sensitivity, social difficulties, and meltdowns or shutdowns become stronger? I think this is true for me, to the point that I'm sometimes unsure wh...

Can't believe I forgot Blackadder; loved every series of it and Benny Hill was hilarious- the British Charlie Chaplin :). Most British sitcoms aren't funny when adapted to the U.S. though; the American Red Dwarf just reused jokes from the original, couldn't stand Friends and it was supposedly an ad...

The only British shows I find funny are "Are You Being Served?" & "Coupling". The rest just make me wonder "how is this at all funny", or I end up doing a lot of eye-rolling. Hubs loves "Red Dwarf" tho. They tried to do an American version of Coupling, bu...

I haven't done it in years, but I would like to know how to upload drawings you did without a scanner. I don't have access to a scanner, so I don't know what else to do. I'd go with a phone. If you've got space, there's probably somebody near you that's trying to get rid of a used all in one printe...

I was supposed to have a fun night out tonight. I had been looking forward to it for a while. Whilst I enjoyed it, I couldn't enjoy it fully. The shadow of work loomed over me. Frankly to the point where I started crying on the way home because I needed some form of emotional release. I have been u...

I've never found trying to "fake it until I make it" to actually work. It just makes me feel even worse when I finally give up/in. It tends to work out well for me often, but I'm also a relatively skilled actor with a pretty decent noggin and the willingness to do the work and put up with...
