I'm often conscious of being bullied, or more often just subtly disrespected by people whom I consider beneath respect, themselves. I get very, very angry and the anger comes back whenever I think about it, but in the moment I'm always too anxious or clueless to say anything. Sometimes I'd love to j...

I don't think there's a better name for it than "riffing". That's what really messes with me in social interactions. It's when people abandon logic and meaningful communication for some kind of light-hearted and superficial saturnalia that everyone but me finds easy and amusing. Most people would ca...

I haven't read it, but I read an aspie's review about it here: http://www.rogernmeyer.com/Hubert_Cross/Asperger%27s_Syndrome_and_Making_Sense_July_2002.htm He says it's really depressing, but a natural counterbalance to authors like Temple Grandin who may paint a dangerously rosy picture of a life o...

I have an impulse to resurrect this thread on this lazy Sunday. I've modified my views on drugs a little, and I don't see many people saying the following in quite the same way. I still think drugs should be legal because it's your business what you put into your body. But an argument for the illega...

I like to tell jokes, but they're terrible. I think they're f*in' funny, though. What do you give people who've lost loved ones in the Hindenburg crash? Your blimpathies. What kind of houses do proctologists live in? Bungalows. A priest and a rabbi walk into a bar. The bartender explosively soils hi...

Yeah! But Guillermo Del Toro tried for many years and I think let it go a few years ago. Something like he couldn't get enough investors.

Eh, some are, I guess. Don't let them push drugs on you that you don't want, and don't tell them things that might be construed as dangerous to anyone unless you know them pretty well.

It's not exactly a book, but I think the lethal hauntings at 50 Berkeley Square in London deserve their own movie.

Can someone break this down for me, aspie-intellectual style? I've never bothered to notice this until now: a lot of people freaking LOVE going to Disneyland and I just don't get it. It's a novel experience, sure, but I notice many people seem to regard going there the same way an alcoholic looks at...
