The first smartphone I ever had would heat up for no reason every time it updated Facebook. I don't use Facebook. I try uninstalling it, but updates kept putting it back in. When it heat up, it was not enough to burn my hand, but just enough to make me think one of these days it would spontaneously...

I'm more wary of it being a blind affiliate link with posted no explanation or introduction. It looks like the author may be self-promoting it here.

I did look it up on Google but I just wanted to mention it here too, as it's interesting that all these autism symptoms seem typical behaviours in NT toddlers and it makes me not understand how some Aspies get diagnosed at like 2 or before even if they're developing well. The main reason they can g...

Ariprazole is an anti-psychotic, and yes it does carry all of those side-effects. Its use in Autism and Tourette's syndrome are off-label however. Most patients do experience mild side-effects, but those tend to lessen over time. Sometime's it works, sometimes it clearly does not - that's true of mo...

In order for that song to be offensive, you'd have to view trans-folks as unnatural first, so the group Standing for Women must think that - shame on them.

I've never heard or seen coin-operated televisions. Usually once you pay for licensing, that's it.

The few adults who don't wear glasses socially were usually made fun of as children and this are self-conscious about it as adults.

There is a trend here in the US of wearing plain glass glasses to look more intellectual, so it goes both ways.

The term microagression was coined to give people the excuse to look for slights or insults where none were intended and then be able to be offended with impunity.
