I found this a while ago and really want to see it again but I can't find the link to it. The site takes this poster

Image and puts it alongside another poster with the same pictures but with different (funny) interpretations of the pictures. If anyone can give me a link to the site I'm talking about it would be great.

For me it is pretty much all of the above, as well as the common autistic trait of a poor memory for faces. Unless you are really, really ugly!. Then if I meet you for the first time and recognise you later the following day, then you may need cosmetic surgery.

Or you could be wearing interesting clothes or have an interesting hairstyle. :)

Sorry, haven't seen that anywhere though...

My traits are inappropriate laughter and giggling and inappropriate attachments to objects. I think that I can also throw insistence on sameness into the mix, because of personal things that I've dealt with, since Black Friday.

Wow, I have never seen a thread deviate so quickly! Nobody answered the original post at all!

I'm sorry, I felt I had to comment :oops: Though sorry, I have never seen the poster before and therefore cannot possibly give you the link. I hope somebody can though; I'm intrigued!

You must love the Steely Dan song ...

All those traits would apply to me if you take a reciprocal of certain ones and make it extreme and impossible to ignore. Such as inappropriate aversion to some common objects, must stop things from spinning and balance them on edge .......

On topic:
I haven't seen that either, but it is interesting. I want one to give to my kids "new" teachers.

I haven't seen anything like what you're describing, but I did think that this chart was really funny when the Autism Society gave me a copy of it. In particular, the one for "inappropriate attachment to objects" made me laugh when I saw it. I wanted to change it to "passionately in love with a pool noodle."

(I don't know if "pool noodle" is regional term or not, so here's a pool noodle for those that might now know:

They not curved like that, those people are bending them.)

Inappropriate laughing and giggling = Great sense of humor
No real fear of danger = Top gun
Apparent insensitivity to pain = Very tolerant
Not wanting to be cuddled = Good at outrunning grizzly bears and lets the NTs get cuddled by them
Sustained unusual or repetitive play, uneven physical or verbal skills = Keeps persevering and does not give in, no matter how tedious.
May avoid eye contact = Not provocative
May prefer to be alone = Minds his/her own business
Difficulty expressing needs or may use gestures = Great at working in a noisy environment and good as using gestures if all human voice is drowned out.
Inappropriate attachment to objects = Accidentally stepped on a bear trap
Insistence of sameness = Likes wearing uniforms
Echoes words and phrases = Good rote memory
Inappropriate response or no response to sound = Heavy metal fan
Spins objects or self = Talent for ceramic pottery or figure skating.
Difficulty interacting with others = Surrounded by a bunch of NT idiots

My interpretation of it

The PSP

PSP is the play station portable

This is a device created by Sony. It got my PSP on Thurday 30th August 2006 at 15:29 and 29 seconds.

You can play games, view movies, look at pictures, listen to music and even go on the Internet.
