The Beatles are fine, but I'd say the ladies you mentioned (especially Adele) were probably more influenced by the late, great, Dusty Springfield. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uonH7CcextM[/youtube] It does not have to be the same sound as 1964. But if the Beatles and the original invasio...

Even though I would be scared both to do it and come back I say yes out of pure curiosity. Everybody here talks about NT' s guesses about them so it would be nice to find out what it is really like. It would help me not only find out about them but myself. The question that most fascinates me is wha...

I have always known I was "different" . Up until age 20 or so I had my share of bullying and was miserable. In my 20's I accepted that I was different and would always be that way. Things went fairly well with school, and classmates, then work and colleagues. and as far as I was concerned I had matu...

On February 7, 1964 the Beatles arrived at New York's Kennedy airport and the British Invasion began. You can say as many do it ended in 1967 with the Psychedelic /Hippie explosion which was a worldwide not solely a British phenomenon. It as had it's up and down times but in one form or another the ...

Start by thanking them for coming. The biggest thing of all for that people need to understand is they need to listen hard and really try to understand what the Aspies in their life are saying. They need to understand that it is a neurological difference not character flaws or psychiatric disorder. ...

Both neuromajority and Autistics are human but we have a neurology that is pervasively different. While it is possible for neurotypicals to understand Autistics and what they want and feel this is very difficult. Autism Speaks most certainly does not understand and disagrees with what a lot of Autis...

Meltdowns are just one part of many traits that define where you are on the spectrum. As for not having meltdowns the person might be less affected by sensory stimuli, low working memory, or has learned to control them or a combination of being less affected and self control. Sometimes I feel like d...

Losing things is a "skill" I am quite good at. I am just glad that my head comes attached to the rest of my body or I would have lost it a long time ago.

Finding out there are other people like yourself, and that there might be an explanation for things that have been a painful mystery is an incredibly powerful and positive feeling.

I can not say I have watched every show just the last 3 starting when Hank got his suspicions. If you are conspiracy theory minded the founder of Autism Speaks was the former Chairmen at NBC and this is an NBC show. However SPOILER ALERT: In the last show revolves around Max's Mom advocating for Max...

I have come to realize that I do not have as much warning that I need to go to the bathroom as other people.
