Yep, I think you guessed it from the title.


1) how do we drive NTs mad?
2)What sorts of things do you do that drive NTs mad?

Talk with other aspies about birdsong, squirrels we remember, the specifics of feeding the foxes in your back garden, etc etc, in front of them!

I'm too busy being driven mad by NT's to worry about what I'm doing to them.

Stim very obviously, like hand-flapping or better yet making odd noises.

Tell them their "stims" ("they're nervous tics", they'll say) are messing up your thought process.

Do you think engaging cockney rebel in a conversation about routemasters would work? We wouldn't need to do much talking, huh?

I can talk to them about Routemasters, Regent Ts, RMLs, RTLs, and Damleir Half Cabs, which are all classic Double Deckers.

Do you have a picture of a Damler Half Cab? I'm genuinely interested!

Act how you want to. Such independence will confuse and belittle the Neurotypical.

If it doesn't hurt for you, stare into their eye fixedly.

I was always the best at a game at school we played called bustop. You'd have Person A and Person B. Person A had to try and get person B to get off the 'bustop' by doing the most freakishly weird thing he/she could think of. When Person B got off, person A took his/her place, and another person would step up to the plate as the new Person B. Needless to say I always won!

mmm talking about the same thing over and over can drive them mad. Me being literal can drive them mad, me not getting something, not reading social cues or being aware of their feelings. I drove Nts mad in high school for these things. But now it seems like I don't anymore because I'm out of school.

continually ask them the greatest question of all time:why?
explain in great detail where echerichia coli is found.
