I don't know if I'd consider Howard an Aspie. He's just an uber nerd. I think Sheldon and Rajesh are Aspies for sure and Leonard, I'm still on the fence about.

Well Sheldon definitely because of the way he is & Rajesh because he can't to women (he just can't it's impossible for him unless he thinks he is drunk a placebo effect or he's not paying attention to them or he knows they are family). Leonard I would think has some aspie like characteristics but then again all of them are uber nerds (which I can understand their social difficulties)

I think only Sheldon is 100% Aspie: Raj was able to talk to women when he went through an arrogance phase when he won an award, and can talk to women with alcohol, so its more anxiety. Howard and Leonard also have at least some girlfriends, and its hard to be sure with them: they could have fit the criteria fully when younger! It is a great show: I hope it gets more popular.

OMG, after tonight's episode, there's no doubt about Sheldon having Asperger's. With his comments regarding small talk and his inability to recognize facial expressions, I was like, "that's me! (only not as smart)."

Two of my favourite clips:

Sheldon is apparently the only one who understands Rogues :D

Totally pointless, waste of time and energy, really geeky - and really cool!:

Yeah the small talk and not being able to understand body language and facial expressions really did put Sheldon well into the AS category.

Yeah when I saw that I thought of WP :lol: I'm actually suprised that Sheldon's admitting to having aspie traits didn't get its own thread. Raj I don't think is an aspie-just a stranger in a strange land.

Do you guys think Sheldon puts Aspies in a negative or positive light? If you were telling someone you had Asperger's and they didn't know what it was, would you feel comfortable saying that Sheldon probably has it knowing you would be comparing yourself to him?

When I saw that episode & Sheldon was telling Penny I can't understand how you'd be uncomfortable she states that she is uncomfortable (Sheldon at this point is trying to understand "friends with benefits" since that was what Howard & Leslie were). I stated at the TV that Sheldon has asperger's so that is why he acts like that but then again who here hasn't acted in a similar way before?

The small talk line was the best for me. He was trying to make small talk with Penny and she was telling him about her job and he interrupted and said something a long the lines of being sorry, but finding it totally uninteresting. That's me exactly. I have more tact than Sheldon and wouldn't do that to a person. I just try to avoid occasions where uninteresting small talk is likely to occur. Needless to say, my dating life is about as exciting as Sheldon's.

It's not that small talk is uninteresting for me as it is for Sheldon it is that sometimes I assume that others are rational (when in fact they are not something Sheldon himself might assume heck even Leonard would assume that (because geeks as we know are rational except when it comes to love & nobody is rational when that's involved)
