 Forum: Work and finding a Job   Topic: Is it a reasonable request to ask for someone’s iq?

For some jobs, I don't see why not, though the IQ itself wouldn't prove that the person can handle a particular job. Even if someone has a very high IQ, if they have no experience or the exact education for a particular job, they might do worse in it than someone with an average IQ but who has exper...

I think the reason's cultural and historical; for centuries, and still in some cultures, most women were forced in to the role of a mother and a housekeeper and only that. While women now have other options too in civilized cultures, a woman having other choices is such a new thing in those too that...

Not an expert on the subject, but it's legal where I'm from as long as they register as some kind of business and pay their taxes properly... I think. Unless it's changed somehow recently or something. I've read some articles about it, but the last one was several years ago. Anyway, I don't see a mo...

Maailmanlopun kahvila by Nelli Hietala

Literal translation of the title: The Cafe of the End of the World

I feel like I can empathize with the main character's life situation, but she's kinda bitchy.

Some kind of wrapped chocolate candy... bought a box to celebrate Christmas chocolates coming to the stores. Of course, it's a bit too early for Christmas preparations, but chocolate doesn't count! Wasn't all that good though, so I won't be buying this kind anymore.

I haven't noticed autistic people specifically having large heads, and I've met a lot IRL. I'm an exception to that though as my head swelled as a baby due to pressure in the brain, but even my head's not noticeably bigger than most anymore.

Since the pressure's the problem (among other things?), that does make appearing sexy harder since tight fitting clothes that don't leave much to imagination when it comes to shapes has a big role in what's considered sexy. Have you gone to any lingerie shops for advice? Maybe they'd have some model...

@Fireblossom He does part of the housework. Groceries and cooking are his regular responsibilities and possibly much cleaning - we both hate it so we share. And he's the one struggling with construction workers in the new apartment, which is quite a load right now. He lacks skills to work with the ...

Well, yes and no. My closet has a lots of clothes that I think I might end up wearing more at some point, so I don't throw them away, but I mostly wear the same four or five outfits on a regular basis. Of course, since during summer it can be, and often is these days, 30 degrees and then even -20 de...

Oh boy, this is a subject I could go on and on about, and I don't even have kids... well, guess the subject I'd be going on about would be more like gender inequality in general. Your situation is a very common one, unfortunately. While men often work more paid hours in whatever company they work fo...

Some self made wheat bread. I slept poorly and had trouble concentrating on things in the late morning, so I thought I'd bake something instead of opening my computer, but I was not in the mood to go grocery shopping, so baking anything sweet was out of the question. In the end, bread was all I had ...

Asperger shouldn't be used as an excuse (or a shield) to not try to learn things, as in one shouldn't say "there's no point in trying, I have asperger so I can't learn X", but it's a fact that it makes some things harder for us to learn than for NTs, so I think that that should be taken in...

I tend to get unreasonably happy when something I post on tumblr gets far more likes than I would've expected, which is something that has been happening to one of my posts since I made it last week. :mrgreen:

...I've never thought about it, actually. I've written autistic characters before, but they've always been the good guys (one ended up really bitchy, but she wasn't evil.) If I were to write an autistic villain... well, if I was writing a children's story, I'd give her (yes, her, if I'm gonna write ...
