Morning. I get up at 6:07am, and go for a 2 mile walk. At weekends, I go back to bed after the walk for another hour or so of sleep. Usually in bed by 10:00pm.

Verbal. It always intrigued me how humans would have been able to think in the prehistorical days before languages existed. Recently I found I have aphantasia, and not everyone is like me. I cannot imagine being able to have any thought processes at all, except by holding a sort of inner conversatio...

For example, my childhood was interested in electricity, even built my own electromagnet, but when I accidentally did an experiment how the alternating current voltage of 220 V working on human body (my own) I do not like it so much now :mrgreen: Yeah this. My fascination with physics began when I ...

The character I absolutely identify with is Sheldon Cooper (Big Bang Theory). Its not his extreme qualities but its because in most of the episodes I would react almost the same way to the situations he encounters. I also find myself identifying with Sheldon Cooper. Wanting to sit in my own spot, w...

I heard about this a few months ago from a (different?) npr interview (a guy who wrote a book about loosing his wife and all his friends after treatment). Yes that book author was interviewed by Terri Gross on the NPR show "Fresh Air". He was a nerdy guy worked as a sound engineer for roc...

Interesting; I hadn't spotted the similarities within each column, until you pointed it out. But to me, any one of columns 1, 5, 6 or 7 could easily be the "neutral" expression. Maybe column 2 also. Only columns 3 and 4, to me, seem like obviously expressing a strong emotion; of displeasur...

I can't remember a thread during my time here addressing the issues of AS people who are teaching academics. In fact I can't think of a single media article, speech, film, program, seminar or conference which has addressed the topic. Another first for Wrong Planet? This invisibility is a bad thing ...
