Please describe the process.

Discerning and acting upon the imagination.

So when I design a new killer robot, I'm being poetic?

Not in any way I would find impressive, but yes, I suppose so.

Like a "dog is not just for christmas", autism is not just for "autism pride day".

Joke aside, I think that while the AS community could (and has) learn a lot from the gay rights / gay pride movement I am not sure how best we could have a AS pride day.

Today is Autistic Pride Day!


today is Satur Day in my world.

how can i be "proud" of what i am when i had no hand in my genesis?
i was born the way i was without one scintilla of effort exerted by me in my formulation or construction.

what is "pride" anyway? i have heard the word a million times in a thousand different contexts, and i gather that it is a feeling of internal fortification that results from a person's positive appraisal of their performance pertinent to a field of criteria that they consider important.

i am not proud of who i am , i am content with who i am, and i need not show anything to anyone in order to feel full of being.

My thinking was never really complex. My main AS effect was mostly communication issues. I never had this whole "little professor syndrome" thing like everyone else unfortunately. So yeah, not many up-sides about my AS for me to celebrate. Ah well. I could care less.

I think i'll spend Autistic Pride Day writing a script for a friends YouTube show.

I'm celebrating right now by giving myself an enjoyable dinner together with an appropriate musical soundtrack.

Also by unlurking and expressing a hearty greeting to all of you!

Oh, sing a song of joy
Sweet childhood, never desert me
Time for celebration, oh!
Overcome with a sense of elation
I'll never let you get to me
Survival is my victory!


:D

I thought Autistic Pride Day was supposedly on April 1 and April 2 of this year when everything was supposed to be lit up blue. I found out about it on April 3... really.

You Americans have inherited too much German pragmatism..... and too much a commercial sense of life.

I think pragmatic means: relating to matters of fact or practical affairs often to the exclusion of intellectual or artistic matters

I had a good day surfing 10min from home, and met a new friend :) played in the sand with some beautiful children, then sat in a hot pool with friends and lots of young beautiful people(and girls, I was careful not to stare at breasts :wink: )

Fairly normal Sunday for me.

La Dolce Vita

that sounds like a horrible day to me. it is a chore to the maximum for me to interact with people in real time, and i would have just dumped my obligations to remain with any of them and i would have gone home.

say "lah vee"

ne'er in the twain do meet we.

I am not American.

And I cannot understand why you used pragmatic here...

Would you like to give me some clues please?
