Hey people... (At least, it SEEMS like there were some people here, at one point?)

I am new to WP... My doc suggested I reach out, so here I am... I am new to both forums online, as well as my asperger diagnosis... I feel like a nice person with a few creative ideas, and a lifelong aversion to groups and groupthink...

At this point I am trying to find relevance in continuing to show up here... I mean, it's a great one-way resource, for reading and videos, but besides information, where is the connect?

I am open... Anyone caring to take a moment certainly is invited to do so...

Thanks,
Craig

p.s. If you need a gimmick to respond to, please share your absolutely favorite quote in your reply!

Welcome! Favourite quote...hmm...I like the quote "Today I bent the truth to be kind, and I have no regret, for I am far surer of what is kind than I am of what is true" which I read in an old Reader's Digest magazine.

Ah, yes, the connection part is tricky online, it seems a great way to start the process but not the most ideal to maintain it...

Hi Craig from a fellow N00bie!

Favourite quote? Probably "Dripping water creates a channel in rocks, not by force but by perseverance."
I always liked this.

Whats yours?

welcome
In my experience Wrong Planet often acts more like a gaggle of individuals than a group, and are more likely to see partial consensus than group think.

One of my faves is a quote from Peter O'Toole, "If actors' lives were interesting, they wouldn't spend all their time playing someone else!"

Hi. I am new as well. I would like to meet other like minded Aspies, if only to compare notes and see how compatible/ comfortable I would be with another similarly annoying person. Haha.

Hi.
I have 2 favorite quotes:

1.
In the carboniferous epoch we were promised abundance for all
By robbing selected Peter to pay for collective paul
And although we had plenty of money there was nothing our money could buy
And the gods of the copy book headings said if you don't work you die.

2.
Would you defy me?
I am the eater of hope, I shall take your dreams and make them my nightmares, I shall take your hopes and make them my fears. I am the eater of light and you shall not defy me.
