Bring back the olden days when they were allowed to say anything on TV and people just laughed and got on with their lives. I agree. Anybody who really wants to fight racism might do well to look for bigger fish to fry than a white man doing Apu's voice for a cartoon. These days they daren't screen...

I tend to use the terms addiction and dependence interchangeably, because everybody seems to have different views on what the difference is, and some recommend abandoning the terms. https://www.addictioncenter.com/addiction/addiction-vs-dependence/ I don't understand the difference, if there is one ...

I've been trying to learn guitar on and off for at least 20 years but I can't seem to get anywhere with it. I wonder if it requires coordination I simply can't achieve or if I'm just making excuses for not practicing enough. I managed to learn the guitar when I was a teenager, but I was obsessional...

No, we're talking at cross purposes, sorry. I'm talking about irony. It's ironic that a greedy CEO has to tell the government to back off. The government is meant to control businesses, not the other way round. (although we all know this particular government is being controlled by billionaires, bu...

^ Yes, what is it about schools and sport? It was bad enough for me in England in the 1960s when half the school seemed to think anybody who didn't do football and rugby had something wrong with them, but at least the other half felt the same as I did so I had plenty of allies in that respect. But i...

^ I'm rather wobbly on my current bicycle, but on the one I had before that I had no trouble at all. It seems to be down to the design of the bike rather than my muscle tone. Somebody decided that North Road handlebars weren't good enough, so now it's hard to get a bike with those, and they're all m...

No, water interests me but it doesn't fascinate me.

It's more the noises that stop for a while and then start again that get on my nerves. If a sound is simply repetitive with no interruptions, it's easier for my brain to filter it out. Not that it's always as simple as that.

I don’t revere people. If he didn’t discover it, someone else would’ve eventually. I don’t think the bad stuff about Hans Asperger reflects on me personally. Me too. The important thing to me is the information about the syndrome. I don't much care who discovered or rediscovered it. It's not as if ...

I wouldn't like it. I don't like being in any situation where I know my privacy could be suddenly compromised. I had a similar problem in my last workplace, though there was no door involved. It was possible for people to come and stand behind me without my realising they were there. Most of the tim...

Thanks for the recommendation. It seems possible that I'd qualify as having Generalised Anxiety Disorder, according to the ICD-10, though probably not according to DSM-5. It's hard to know because the criteria are rather subjective. Frankly I think these anxiety disorders are rather arbitrary classi...

^ Call me cynical, but I suspect he's not crazy, but just using a crafty double-bluff. He knows the gov isn't going to tax him, but it makes him look like a good person if he begs for that to happen. If he really wants to help Britain, he can proactively lower his prices, donate his personal fortune...

To this day, I have many special interests. I thought to talk to you about that, if thats okay. Well basically, this symptom is very common among people with this syndrome, so I guess most of you know a thing or two about it. But my question is, what do you actually think about having this symptom?...
