Well, my superpowers have not been turned on in this forum, so I can't help you with the sticky part... YET.

Jana

30

Cats, violin, training for a marathon. I like Wii, but that isn't a perseveration quite yet.

First discovered AS about 1 year ago. Dx'd HFA age 9.

Other dx of depression. I've had anxiety in the past, but it doesn't bother me much anymore.

Degree - Master's in Public Health is my highest degree. BS in Psychology.

No kids.

I actually hate NIN. I like most rock music from the 60's and 70's and enjoy most classical music.

I am employed.

BTW - no fair posting questions and not answering them yourself :P

Ooh I'm jealous. Wish I'd gone that route instead of nursing. But at least my current degree is a partnership with the school of public health and half my classes will be with them. I start my first public health classes this fall and I am SO excited!

When did you discover AS? Not long ago, I always knew of the Autistic spectrum but it was never something that concerned me being I was perfect and all.

Favorite music, other than NIN. R U 4REALZ? NIN IS MUSIC. Kidding. Though I do like Nin. I have a variety expanding from David bowie to Marilyn Manson, Russian Punk, Japanese Rock, industrial, eroguro angura underground, I even like Cake. Thats a seriously broad horizon.

Job? Not currently, still battling problems.

Relationship with significant other, past or present
? Past and confusing. Single is good.

Plans for the future? I'm still piecing things together. I hate uncertainty but this cannot be weighed at the moment.

Anything else you feel is pertinent
: "Like its predecessor, sarin, cyclosarin is a liquid organophosphate nerve agent. Its physical characteristics are quite different from sarin, however.

At room temperature, cyclosarin is a colorless liquid whose odor has been variously described as sweet and musty, and resembling peaches or shellac. Unlike sarin, cyclosarin is a persistent liquid, meaning that it has a low vapor pressure, and therefore evaporates relatively slowly: about 69 times more slowly than sarin and 20 times more slowly than water. Its military value is therefore much greater as a liquid chemical weapon.

Also unlike sarin, cyclosarin is flammable, with a flash point of 94°C (201 °F). "

Fascinating? I think so.
Be careful next time you smell peaches.
