I was like - he is SO OUT OF IT. Very obviously had a low IQ. I felt sympathy for him but I wanted him to shut up because he was hurting my ears. What's your point? I've been to plenty of public places where NTs talk loudly talking about practically nothing or screaming into their mobile phones lau...

A pedestrian cant even go into a DC museum on the mall nowadays without going through metal detectors. So obviously someone in a car ramming barricades around the White House and Capitol is going to attract the threat of deadly force. And the car windows were tinted( it appears from the clips). Ins...

I think O'Mara makes an interesting point. If she was not longer posing a threat, is it justified to kill her. She may have injured officers and she may have posed a threat, but if she wasn't posing a threat at the moment that they killed her, then their shooting of her becomes a matter of punishme...

Fnord, do you have a link to say she injured anybody? I have already posted no less than two links so far in this thread. Why don't you take the time to go read the articles they link to? Both of your links look like news blog sites; one of which only claims that two officers were injured while "ch...

So the cops open fired on an unarmed mentally deranged women with a baby in the backseat, what heroes. :? Trollish posts do not a case make. The police fired on a vehicle that had already been used to attack and injure two people - a vehicle that they could not see inside of due to the tinted windo...

What Verdandi is talking about is the same thing that some NTs do towards all autistics. Many of us here (including Verdandi) have been saying this for some years to the "Aspiecentrics" here that in having Aspergers you can't have it both ways. On the one hand claiming to have legitimate grievances...

Is it me or do series, and films display more and more aspergers/autist characters? (Alphas, Touch, The bridge, Big Bang theory, Bones...) I wonder why? Any evidence the characters played in the above series i.e. such as Dr Temperance Brennan (Bones) and Dr Sheldon Cooper (Big Bang Theory) were act...

High Functioning Autism: Intelligence is at least in the normal range. ( minimum IQ score of 90 or high 80s) They are capable of someday living on their own, and do not have any intellectual delays. Medium Functioning Autism: Intelligence is below average but not in the retarded range. (IQ between ...

So she can do as she pleases with her children, but she was able/allowed to make life-changing decisions for herself when she was still legally a child? And she probably does not perceive this as wrong? Sylkat This is why children exposed to cults at a young age are usually stuck in a mindset throu...

Hi Alimay, It sounds like your daughter has not been formerly diagnosed with ASD? In any case speech therapy is going to help regardless if she just has a form of global speech delay. My hope is that's all she has. My brother was born with a speech delay and was wrongly diagnosed as retarded. He tur...

Last time I checked, The Klan has the same rights under the First Amendment as any other congregation of individuals with similar opinions. Defend to the death, and all that... However, I have so far found no evidence that they have been selectively targeted during the government shutdown, so... me...

I imagine now the CIA and NSA are unable to work. Al Qaeda will be sending a thank you note to the Republicans.

Don't worry, those cretins will find somewhere else in the area to spread their vitriol. There are more than enough cr****rs in this area that will welcome them with open arms. Like I said on a different thread, they don't call Pennsylvania the Alabama of the North for nothing! Given the state of L...

Later that day I made a meme and posted it on my facebook wall. It had a picture of an asian in a labcoat and went something like this: Anatomy Lab: Dissects pig heart Lunch time: Dissects chicken heart. Your joke would obviously be taken as racist. Firstly what is an "Asian" in a labcoat? Asia rep...

Im confused by Ricky Gervais. I thought it was Americans who were notorious for using profanity. Not the British. The American character in British movies is always the one the says "Its friggin hot today..its friggin this...its friggin that". Probably the way it goes is that americans use the word...

Leththwaite was already brainwashed by the time she decided to have kids. You have to remember she voluntarily allowed herself to be converted, although I imagine if the converse was to happen (i.e. a 15 yr old muslim decided to go against her parents wishes and convert to Christianity) then a fatwa...
