Magnetism of the earth is used by many species to orient for migration. Slightly off topic but I was watching a flock of waterbirds last month fly up to Mount Hotham in Victoria State in Australia. It was absolutely fascinating that when they reached the summit the flock circled the summit systemat...

It's not so much about following the flock, it's just that I often feel stupid and inferior, while neurotypicals have all these superpowers. I'm just nothing. Just a hopeless Aspie. With a disorder that means self-ism, in other words, isolation. Don't want it. Your pretty smart and have nothing ext...

NTs are really judgey. Being even slightly different is not valued unless you are successful.

You don't need to be a sheep and follow the flock to be happy.

I recall some time back you mentioned Spokane has some of the most progressive and some of worst elements of US society living as neighbours. Honestly, most of the country is like this, blue enclaves in a sea of red. Even the Seattle area where I live is like that, you can drive 20 minutes from dow...

Just saw episode 4 of the Book of Boba Fett.

We are back to the high standards of episodes 1-2

Pity the flashbacks in the Bacta=tank are finished. Loved the backstory

Something we've done every year, save for the time downtown Spokane had been closed down because some racist piece of human excrement had tried to set off a bomb during the MLK day parade. I recall some time back you mentioned Spokane has some of the most progressive and some of worst elements of U...

My daughter got MLK day off, so we went downtown Spokane to the comic book shop, and a couple sort of counter-cultural-in-a-fun-way shops (Boo Radley's and Giant Nerd Books), then went out to eat. Fun day. It sounds like she will have a positive outlook toward MLK day for the future. I wish all par...

One of the mistakes I made after graduating was to wait for job agencies to contact me. You need to proactively go and knock on doors. I eventually got my first job poking my head inside somebody's office. In the interim while you wait for work in your area also be open to do any sort of paid work t...

Oh and David Byrne's "kooky" dancing in Talking Heads was his version of head bobbing in Afro-punk which is similar to Elvis copying leg shaking of early rockers like chuck berry and Little richard. The Elvis leg-shaking became his trade mark move. Famously Eminem did the same for rap musi...

I do remember hearing about the bar incident. It was disappointing to me, but I'm still a huge fan of his music. I have discussed this a number of times but when "New wave" first came out it was a revelation to see people with even more "nerdy" personas than me such as David Byr...

In common chimps it's not necessarily the physically strongest becomes alpha, sometimes a weak chimp with strong social skills and lot of allies can become alpha, and beta chimps DO breed but they're usually not the first choice of females. Sounds familiar, no? Luck has some role. For example certa...
