I wish to revise my answer. She killed her sister over the inheritance, but told her new husband this was how in love with him she was and she would just keep killing people until they got married (he married her immediately after that). Then she explained it to the judge, who was a hopeless romanti...

I got it pretty quickly, after considering the idea that the man was a red herring and she killed her sister to get the inheritance. But so did my NT mother.

Vivisection? It's not polite to vivisect people. It's even less polite since I only really see her up in the choir loft during services, and her screams would probably be disruptive. It's rude to disrupt church services. Her blood would also stain the carpet. Staining the carpet is inconsiderate. I...

If you had other unusual things, I'm not particularly interested in those. Just if you were particularly colicky or quiet.

I think someone I know from church might be an Aspie. I want to know for sure but I don't think she knows enough English to read the DSM. And I absolutely do not want to make a big deal of what I am. And I absolutely do not want to go asking anybody, but ESPECIALLY not an NT or someone undiagnosed, ...

There is no evidence that Autism is a physical disability. Thanks a lot, Ambeind - you made me worry about this now, if Autism affects you in EVERY SINGLE WAY and not one thing about an Autistic is the same as NT, what if that means Autistics die earlier or something? So I'm deformed now, aswell as...

Always. Using a mix of pure concepts, words, pictures and feelings-- whatever's most useful, fastest and easiest for the specific idea. (Pure concepts are quick, but for complicated or abstract ideas, I usually need words and the ones I use are almost always in English. Pictures kick in when I'm wal...

That thread was started by an autistic self-advocate who clearly has severe communication difficulties. I usually ignore his posts because I can't understand a word he says and the little I've been able to parse, I've never agreed with a word of it. I can't tell whether he's being disrespectful and ...

Because of people who say "you can't call yourself autistic! You just have Asperger's! Autism is an awful thing! You're only functional because you're a super-high-functioning 'Aspie' and you're lying if you call yourself autistic!"

Well, I went through the test results and everything today. I am just barely shy of the benchmark for official diagnosis as an adult. My therapist was 100% certain that I would have met the diagnostic criteria as a kid, but I have come far enough with my social skills that I just don't quite qualif...

So, um... what IS the right answer about taking a nap? I thought it was "rather strange" if he did it outside but I can't remember if I said it was "very eccentric" or "shocking" when he did it inside.

the only ways in which a person could suddenly lose cognitive efficiency, would be in a lab setting where a medico magnetically interferred with the functioning of the frontal lobes, or if an infarction happen in that brain region. stress works pretty quickly, also, but not technically in a sudden ...

This is not indicative for problems with social interpretation.These results may not be mistaken for a sound and definitive diagnosis. That requires the judgment of a qualified diagnostic.
