What will be next? Famous people with two testicles? Famous people that have more than 5 million hairs?

I find it very informative and inspiring to see celebrities with the same issues as me.

What?! Two testicles? That would be a crazy disease...

Really though, I agree, I am inspired by successful people with issues like mine. This site's list of Asperger's famous people was odd, though. It really seemed to focus only on people about whom we may never know the truth and some of the arguments didn't convince me. (Like Peter the Great's). Also, I had hoped for more current people.

Craig Nicholls and Ladyhawke come to mind. Someone also told me that Bill Gates has AS. He always catches the same bus everyday. Daniel Radcliffe has dyspraxia, but he has overcome a lot of social issues he had with it.

Some of those entries are very speculative. Suggesting Napoleon had Aspergers is hard to figure out. Leading thousands of soldiers, controlling generals, traveling over the globe and womanising just doesnt sound like Aspergers to me.

Some of these are absurdly speculative. And it fails to include cases that seem lots clearer: Tesla, Mozart.
