I can't deal with anything where people get sexual pleasure out of torturing/mutilating other people. Not for me. I can do stupid, I can do crude. I like Gummo. I think that's a really interesting piece of cinema. I have no problem with people being artsy-fartsy or pretentious! I also don't watch su...

I'm crying right now and I'm a big, hairy brute.

I don't know if you'd call it a stim. I think it's something to do with proprioception. Sort of anchoring yourself in a space. Some people don't get enough sensory feedback to have a good idea of where there are in a space. So they touch things more (and harder) than others because they're searching...

Chillhop radio. I often have it on when I'm (supposed to be) working. I can't work when music has lyrics in it so Chillhop is perfect background noise for me when I'm writing.

Overall, feedback seems to suggest I'm kind of an 'intense', wordy person. It's not necessarily a bad thing. It's just kind of my character and I've gotten more love than hate for it. Depends on how you use it, I guess. It served me well when I was dating. I can relate to this. I have always been a...

I love a Gus Van Sant movie called Gerry which no one seems to have heard of, despite it starring Matt Damon and Casey Affleck.

I love it because almost nothing happens in it. Until right at the end, and then it isn't 100% that anything happened at all. But it's awesome.

Personally, when I write characters, I never start off with a condition informing character traits. Sometimes characters reveal to me that they have some kind of condition in the writing of them, and then I can play on that a bit in rewriting. But I wouldn't start writing an 'autistic' character unl...

Crying is a natural bodily function. It's pain relief. It's insane that anyone ever thought that it was a bad thing and shamed boys for doing it.

From a really young age I've always been more comfortable talking to older people. Grannies can't get enough of me. :heart: It does make me sad that I don't seem to be able to connect with people my own age. I yearn for connection with people who are at a similar stage of life - it seems like it wou...

I've just recently been filling out an 'evidence' form for a referral so my daughter can get assessed for ASD. I got really sad doing it, because I see so much of the problems I had growing up, and then I did get angry because I wondered where the people were who should have been doing this for me w...

Cheer up chum, no one's going to remember any of us for more than a few decades after we die. And once you're dead you're probably not going to care anyway.

I can stand up in front of a crowd and talk *at* them. I can talk to a person if I perceive there to be a legitimate reason for me to be talking to them (i.e. I'm buying something at a shop or I'm talking to a teacher about my child's schooling). Where I struggle is pure 'socialising'. Talking to pe...

I'm 'mining' Pi. I like the fact that they're building a userbase around their network prior to launching the actual coin. I don't expect to become a millionaire when it goes to mainnet but it's an interesting approach I think, and more likely to have a sustainable future than these coins that launc...

Nope, never have. I've been overweight most of my life (not massively but enough to hide any muscle that might be there), I have pretty pale skin and I don't expose most of it enough to develop a tan - but I'm bald so I have a very tanned head, tanned arms and legs and then this palid, flabby body -...

My daughter is 7. She's undiagnosed but we're working towards it. She's just becoming aware, I think, that she struggles with things that other girls her age don't struggle with (mainly sensitivity to clothes and anxiety over leaving the house). I find it really hard to watch her and she's recently ...

Sure, as a poor teen I couldn't afford a Mega Drive (genesis) but I loved playing Sonic and Sonic II on friend's machines. My sisters boyfriend lent me a Mega Drive and a friend lent me Sonic 3 when he'd finished it so it was the first one I got to play on my own time (Master System versions not wit...
