What is your first name? Danny.

Age: 21

Location: New York

Hobbies and Interests: Gaming, anime, pro-wraaaaaaslin' *chairsmack*, writing, web design and reading articles.

Why are you here? To whimsically seek validation from a like-minded bunch of faceless, voiceless blobs of text, and possibly be a jerk for a few laughs. The main intention was lurking, though.

When were you diagnosed? : Before the fifth grade.

Favorite subjects: Literature and History

Year/Grade: college junior

Favorite music: KMFDM, Rage Against the Machine, Primus, System of a Down, Nightwish

Books: Tonto and the Lone Ranger Fistfight in Heaven (... or was it the other way around?), Inherit the Wind. FYI, I love reading, but find absolutely irritating the act of having to sit down and read a book.

TV shows/Movies: The Boondocks, Family Guy, Action, Venture Brothers, Mission Hill, Samurai Champloo

Instrument: .................. Nah, too wrong.

Do you like sports? Not really, but if you count it as a sport, I was quite the lethal hackeysack player in high school. ;)

Family: Mother and father, really mean and whiny older sister that started being nice to my family out of a need for survival after moving out of the house so my folks think I should stop wanting her dead. Yeah, good luck with that, I say.

Clothing: Mostly comedic and video game-related, with some dragons thrown in.

How did you find this website? A search for online aspergers communities, as I was thinking about starting one of my own. I haven't decided on anything yet, though.

Job: Part-time job stocking dairy product in a Wegmans grocery store. It's arguably one of the best grocery chains in the whole friggin' world (it is in itself a tourist attraction in my city) and my coworkers are very nice, funny and helpful, but I still don't think I was meant for this line of work...

Plans for the future? Software developer or writer.

Any comments? Purple monkey dishwasher.
