I recommend having a conversation with your parents and asking the following questions: 1. What do I need to learn to do if I want more independence? 2. What can I do to learn those skills? I just had that conversation with them. They gave me a huge list. I feel stupid. 1. My Social Skills need to ...

I think Brexit is a good idea. The EU is not composted of elected officials but rather appointed officials. I feel it is important to select the officials you place in charge of your government We have European elections here every 5 years. The EU Parliament is made up of MEP's (members of European...

Never seen the film, but I assume it was based on the Harry Harrison novel, "Make Room, Make Room"?


According to Wikipedia, you are correct.

I am like a cat with nine lives. The only problem is that I think I have used them all up at this point. I remember one time getting off the school bus. It was winter and the bus stopped on a sheet of ice. As I was walking away, I slipped on the ice directly under the rear wheels of the bus. The doo...

What is truly brave is to approach a frightening situation despite your initial fears if you deem the risk to be worth it. One of the movies I watched this year was called The 15:17 to Paris , directed by Clint Eastwood. The movie was autobiographical. Two novel approaches used in this film were (1...

There is something on this story that doesn't seem to make sense. "On July 11, Elijah and his caregiver took a walk on a nature trail near Clinton Lake in Lawrence. But just roughly 15 minutes after being outside — when the heat index reached nearly 110 degrees". There is a component missi...

I guess I am a little lost by this thread. Making a cup of tea is not difficult. Here in the U.S. you just boil water and drop in a tea bag. I even simplify the process by boiling my water in a microwave. I guess in the U.K. there is more of a ritual. Maybe it is the difference between a cup of coff...

I tend to agree with BeaArthur. I always considered work to be an integral part of preparation for a career. Around the age of 10, I began cutting lawns in the neighborhood. In the winter I shoveled snow from driveways. I also sold garden seeds door-to-door in the springtime. This gave me spending m...

I am not quite sure what you mean by inner life. Are you talking about your personas? I have an INTJ personality type. As a result I have several personas (or inner voices) that allow me to approach life from many different directions. These personas work together to arrive at the best answer to any...

In many cases people use the expression "How are you?" like the use the expression "Hello". Generally they are not looking for a detailed response. But sometimes they sense something is wrong and when they say "How are you?", they are really looking to find out if you a...

My brother lives in Alaska. They use a term called "paying it forwards". The phrase is used as the opposite of payback or repaying someone: when someone does a good deed for you, instead of paying them back, pay it forward by doing a good deed for someone else. In Alaska conditions can be ...

I don't hate moths. Many are more beautiful than butterflies. So saying Americans hate moths seems too much like a generalization. The only problem with moths is that they can eat holes in clothing. That is why my closets are lined with cedar. I do hate a number of bugs. Number one on the list is ti...

I prefer to communicate in writing rather than verbally. I believe that may be true for many Aspies. When I communicate orally, my communications are rather jumbled. But when I write, I can pay more attention to accurately saying what I mean and with great detail. It is just that I am far more profi...
