On a lighter note, I watched 2001: A Space Odyssey for the first time a couple of weeks ago and indeed it's something. After reading up about it it mostly just seems a lot of simple ideas wrapped up in a needlessly cryptic package. Although it's ambiguity does lead to a lot of interesting interpret...

1986,

That sounds like a self-assessment. Might other folk around you see things a little differently?

Last night we watched Free Guy [2021] again.
(Though maybe my bride only gets partial credit...even though she insists she was awake.)

I still think it is a great film!
(For folk who like movies like TRON [1982] or The Matrix [1999].)

Well...the online quizzes do not provide a diagnosis...but they seem to suggest your suspicions that you might be Autistic are quite reasonable. The good news is you have some of the traits but they are not so strong that they remove all doubt. That's good! If your traits were strong enough to remov...

I'm sorry you are experiencing so many stressful things all at the same time. Major life changes are stressful enough without them arriving in bunches. All I can offer is encouragement to keep on trying to progress, no matter how unpleasant things get. Don't give up. You know these are all things yo...

Welcome to WP! I hope you find it a comfortable place to visit. And, as far as the book goes, it might be important to note that our experiences vary from individual to individual. Being stranded on the Wrong Planet (Earth) is necessarily stressful but how hostile the locals seem depends upon which ...

Zesty, My bride also likes both dogs and cats...but fortunately only "owns" cats. I prefer not to have pets but didn't mind that my bride came with two kitties. My bride was quite miffed that one of "her" kitties fell in love with me and demoted her to "staff". The kit...

I think the 2001: A Space Odyssey viewing experience depends upon if you've read the book . => - If you've read the book the movie provides spectacular pictures for what you'd read. => - If you've not read the book the movie is bewildering. When I saw the movie in a theater with family I was the onl...

I do not know what NTs consider "normal". In general, I prefer concise, straightforward, factual, infrequent acknowledgement when I've done something unusually well, kind, difficult, etc. From someone who knows what they are talking about. A few years ago I was at a large social event when...
